Additionally, the enhancement in the construction of malls, theatres, retail stores, etc., across the region, owing to the rising young earning population & high tourism potential of the region, also enriches the construction projects. With the presence of affluent consumers & the expansion of cities like Melaka in Malaysia, and Hue in Vietnam, across the region, the top retail market brands are also expanding their presence in these geographical locations.
Also, the rising demand of consumers for quick & personalized services, and their expectation to get a wider range of products delivered to their doorsteps in a short time, has led to a quick expansion of Omni channels in the region. Therefore, this led to the construction of several retail stores at different geographical locations, allowing market players like Harvey Norman, etc., to cater to a large number of consumers. Thus, with the rising number of construction projects for retail stores, the market demand for construction equipment rentals has increased sharply over the past few years across the regional market.
Further, there is an upsurge in public-private partnerships (PPP) to facilitate the construction of institutional centers, which also supports the rise in the number of institutional construction projects. Therefore, the market need for construction equipment rentals is also enhancing across the region mainly because of their high cost linked with ownership & maintenance. Hence, the rising inclination of contractors toward rental construction equipment has supported the growth of the Southeast Asia Construction Equipment Rental market during 2023-28.
Southeast Asia Construction Equipment Rental Market Drivers:
Expanding Government Infrastructure Projects Across the Region – The rising government investments across the region to improve roads & transport infrastructures have been uplifting the demand for rental construction equipment during 2018-2022. The increasing support from the government of different countries, like Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, etc., for the construction of infrastructure projects & energy projects is required to upscale the country's economy. For instance,
The soaring investment by construction equipment selling & renting companies & their expansion across the region have been contributing to the Southeast Asia Construction Equipment Rental Market. Therefore, with the rising government investment & the uplifted construction projects across the region, the market demand for rental construction equipment is also anticipated to shoot up during the forecast period.
Southeast Asia Construction Equipment Rental Market Opportunity:
Expansion of Crane Rental Services Across the Region – Southeast Asia is experiencing significant infrastructure development, including roads, bridges, ports, and urban projects in which cranes are essential for heavy lifting tasks in these projects. As construction activities increase, the requirement for crane rental services is likely to surge, creating opportunities for rental companies to meet this demand. The surging infrastructure development activities have been supported by the government, in line with its objective of developing countries across the region.
Moreover, better connectivity to brace the soaring incoming leisure tourism & the government's aim to make the country a hotspot destination for healthcare tourism has been the main reasons for the investments in infrastructure development. Thus, to satiate the booming infrastructure development, primarily roads, highways, rail lines, airports, etc., a sudden increase in demand for cranes has been observed.
Owing to this, the requirement for cranes has increased & many equipment rental companies have solely started offering cranes on hire, which is anticipated to increase the Southeast Asia Construction Equipment Rental Market growth during 2023-28.
Southeast Asia Construction Equipment Rental Market Challenge:
Volatile Rents of Construction Equipment to Hamper Market Growth – The volatile cost of renting construction equipment has led to frequent shifting of customer base from one company to the other, which highly affects the companies' overall revenue. Further, the increasing number of small local players & contractors across the region, who are offering construction equipment on rent at a comparatively lower cost, affects the overall market demand of existing players & affects market revenue.
Along with this, fluctuations in rental rates make it difficult for rental companies to predict their revenue & profit margins accurately. Hence, rapid changes in rental rates could lead to uncertainty in company planning & hinder the ability to make long-term investment decisions, resulting in hampering the market growth.
Southeast Asia Construction Equipment Rental Market Trend:
Integration of Telematics & Automation in Construction Equipment by Rental Companies – The integration of telematics with construction equipment allows rental companies & end-users to track a variety of data & information linked to it, which has increased the demand for the equipment by rentals among contractors, hence encouraging the growth of the Southeast Asia Construction Equipment Rental Market. By using telematics, rental market players & contractors can monitor the exact location of their construction assets, reducing the chances of thefts related to them.
Telematics technology also provides data analytics, which helps the market end-users to track the performance of the equipment & to determine its maintenance time. Additionally, telematics integrated with construction equipment could track idle time, wear & tear, engine hours, and fuel consumption. The increasing automation of construction equipment like robots, conveyors, lifters, and turn-over machines, which enhances the safety & efficiency of the construction process, uplifts their usage across the region.
Even though the construction market is slow to adapt to technology, small & automated robots are used actively at construction sites to properly monitor the construction process. Therefore, with the enhanced benefits of telematics, and their augmented integration into construction equipment, the usage of such equipment is further projected to heighten significantly during 2023-28.
