Increased economic activity and global population growth has led to rising demand for construction, agriculture, mining and material handling equipments. While demand in China and other emerging markets continue to dominate the global construction equipment industry, the growth in developed markets is also expected to remain high. Further smaller farm operations has pushed demand for equipment which can be used on smaller tractors and vehicles.
Challenges and Oppurtunities
In order to capitalize on growing opportunities, manufacturers need to meet demands of reduced emissions, increased innovation and manufacturing excellence and develop a range of technologies and application that will drive down costs and improve functionality. An ongoing development in the industry is to drive down product costs to meet strong competition from imports, and to further expand into new and emerging markets . OEMs need to develop and introduce localized products to meet country specific requirements. Meeting the new Tier 4 emission standards requires a systems approach and cascade of innovation in the new generation engine systems. On the other hand, pressure to improve program cost and quality for better global collaboration with suppliers is increasing. These factors combine to make adoption and use of following elements to win in market place.
Advanced design & engineering for evolutionary and revolutionary products
Supply Chain & Manufacturing optimization to run lean operations
Increased adoption of automation to improve productivity and cost
Access to global talent for localization and cost advantages
