Indian Equipment Analysis: Wheeled Loaders (September 2016)
Off-Highway Research's Equipment Analyses are a rigorous evaluation of the structure and development of demand for one product in the UK, France, Germany and Italy in the European Service, and in China and India.
Typical coverage includes:
|Construction activity||Market Shares||Market Size and Trends|
|Marketing and Distribution||Domestic Production||Population and End Users|
|Component Supply||Forecasts||Foreign Trade|
This report concerns the Indian market for wheeled loaders, and presents an assessment of the prevailing business environment, changing market trends, the operations of the main suppliers in the country, and a market forecast for the next five years.
This study includes only purpose-built, 4-wheel drive wheeled loaders powered by diesel engines. Backhoe loaders and skid-steer loaders, and their derivatives, are excluded from this analysis. In addition, there is some demand for small machines derived from agricultural tractors, usually powered by 50 horsepower engines and fitted with 0.5 m3 capacity buckets, locally referred to as front-end loaders. However, these are not to be confused with purpose-built wheeled loaders, and are not considered in this report.
In this report, all machines are classified by their engine output, so that similarly powered wheeled loaders can be compared, although it is quite common for customers to request a machine by bucket capacity. However, to compare machines only by bucket capacity might lead to confusion because it is normal for a wheeled loader to be sold with different sizes of buckets depending on the application for which the machine is to be used.
The data in this report is based on Off-Highway Research’s own database, and research carried out in India during July and August 2016 through an interview programme which included all major manufacturers and distributors. This report is an update of the study last published by Off-Highway Research in October 2015.
