Tower Crane works as a common fixture at the major construction site, used to lift, lower and move wide variety of building elements and are commonly seen at all the major residential, commercial and infrastructural construction sites. Tower cranes are beneficial as they can lift heavy loads using several movements such as jack operation, slewing, wire twisting, self-erection, self-climbing, smooth hoisting, climbing frame, and trolley movement. Major applications served by the tower cranes are heavy lifting of steel, concrete, acetylene torches and generators, and other building materials. It is widely used at construction sites, mainly residential, commercial and infrastructural sites, therefore driving the market growth in the near future. Rapid urbanization has resulted in the need for proper urban space planning and high-rise construction has served this purpose, thus expected to become a key growth factor for tower/hoisting cranes. Tower crane providers are investing in Research & Development (R&D) to come up with new and advanced products. For instance, Linden Comansa SL exhibited its latest high capacity flat-top crane model 21LC1050, in Bauma, that can load up to 50 tonnes with a high-speed hoist mechanism that can work with heaviest loads.

The rapid development of advanced systems such as intelligent service panels, remote monitoring, crane with optimized pulley rope angles, high-speed hoist mechanism are expected to drive the market demand. Major players are investing in Research & Development (R&D) of tower crane market size as it will augment the overall usage of advance tower cranes. For instance, Terex Corporation invested US$ 92.7 million in R&D in 2018 to improvise the overall tower crane systems; this, in return, is expected to initiate the tower crane market share.

Key Market Driver -

• Rapid growth in infrastructural sector • Increase in utilization of heavy equipment at shipyards globally

Key Market Restraint -

• High initial cost of implementation • Lack of skilled labour

Manufacturers are trying to adopt new technologies such as the Intelligent Control Technology and Powerful Boom Systems that are expected to drive the demand of tower cranes in the near future. Intelligent Control Technology is coupled with enhanced safety features with additional programmed logic control system that controls the tower cranes functioning, by reducing the hazards. For instance, Liebherr Group introduced LICCON (Liebherr computer control), a modern computer system to control and monitor the mobile cranes with highest safety standards. The growing population in emerging economies is increasing the demand for infrastructural development, thus leading to growth in the demand of tower cranes for infrastructural sector. To cope up with the changing export and import standards, there is a growth in demand for tower cranes at shipyards, resulting in tower cranes market concentration globally.
