Electric Construction Equipment Market Dynamics:

Development in battery charging

Lead-acid and nickel-metal hydride batteries were used in the initial periods of electric cars. However, due to their many benefits over lead-acid and nickel-metal hydride batteries, lithium-ion batteries are now often seen in electric off-highway vehicles. The performance of lithium-ion batteries can be impacted by a number of restrictions. The drawbacks of lithium-ion batteries include rigidity, high cost, restricted power density, short lifespan (typically 600–1,000 charge-discharge cycles before capacity decreases), inadequate robustness (need protection from being overcharged and excessively discharged), and limited lifespan. Solid-state batteries are a replacement for lithium-ion batteries. These lithium metals stabilized solid electrolyte batteries are produced with up to ten times the charging capacity of graphite-based Li-ion batteries. Additionally, solid-state batteries have a lifespan of up to 10 years and a higher energy density. Many manufacturers of electric off-highway equipment invest in the creation of solid-state batteries as a result of these benefits. To create solid-state batteries that surpass Li-ion batteries, Caterpillar and Frisker teamed together in 2018. However, the development of solid-state batteries is difficult due to problems with construction materials, design safety, cost, and manufacturing methods. Electric off-highway equipment would benefit immensely from such better batteries, but these problems slow down progress.

Rising demand for noiseless construction

A higher number of building projects are being built inside city borders, which poses a risk due to the rising noise pollution in cities. The majority of large cities have implemented limitations on construction site noise. The primary causes of the noise produced on residential building sites are construction equipment fueled by diesel. The road and vehicle noise causes serious health problems for 44% of the population in Europe. According to MMR Research, 17,000 people in the UK alone suffer from hearing loss, ringing in the ears, or other ear disorders as a result of excessive noise. Countries are attempting to regulate the noise made by construction equipment to combat this. Initiatives and laws to reduce noise in residential areas are being developed in response to the noise from diesel-powered construction equipment. For instance, Oslo's municipal corporation plans to use similar equipment on all public building sites by 2025. The "What Can Be Run on Electric, Shall Be Run on Electric" strategy is thus being worked on by the city municipal corporation. To establish a market for electric construction equipment, the proposal calls for establishing minimum requirements for bidders on projects that are put out to tender. The city of London is also putting NRMM projects to the test to reduce noise and pollutants from construction machinery. The municipal corporations of London and Paris are collaborating on the most ambitious projects and schemes to ban or significantly reduce all polluting vehicles in residential areas. Noise regulations in all regions and the effects of noise in construction all are covered in the report.  

Unorganized emission standards

This Global Technical Regulation (GTR) aims to provide a highly standardized method for calculating the levels of emissions from light-duty vehicles of gaseous compounds, particulate matter, particle number emissions, CO2 emissions, electric energy consumption, fuel consumption, and electric range. To simplify engine development and emission type clearance or certification for a variety of markets, engine and equipment manufacturers have urged regulatory bodies in multiple regions to standardize global emission standards. For instance, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has aligned California GHG regulations with EPA Federal standards, allowing manufacturers to prove compliance with the 2017 to 2025 EPA Federal criteria to meet California requirements.

Electric Construction Equipment Market Segment Analysis:

Product Type, based on product type forklift segment held the largest market share of xx% in 2021. Electricity is an eco-friendlier forklift power source than gasoline and diesel. In addition, compared to cars built on international combustion engines, electric vehicles require less maintenance. The sale of automobiles powered by combustion engines is now being phased out in several nations, including the United Kingdom, India, and France. Over the expected period, demand for electric cars is expected to be driven by the advantages of electric vehicles and supportive government policies. An electric forklift runs on batteries and has advantages like low maintenance, reduced vibration, low noise, and lightweight, enhancing the comfort of workers when they are in the field. OEMs like Toyota Material Handling, Godrej & Boyce, and Guangxi LiuGong Machinery Co., Ltd. are putting their efforts into creating solutions that address the shifting requirements of warehouse and dockyard operators. For example, Guangxi LiuGong Machinery Co., Ltd., a Chinese producer of construction machinery, announced the introduction of forklift trucks designed specifically for docks in March 2020.

Plug-in hybrids are gaining popularity. Aside from the generators, the engine mechanism contributes to the generation of electricity, which is used to charge the batteries of these vehicles. The battery may also be charged by connecting it to an external source. These cars employ a battery supply that can only be charged by an engine-generating system. CNG is used in natural gas cars to power the engines, which in turn drive the generators. This assists in running the electric motor, which starts the hybrid car. The old battery is discarded and replaced with a new unit. The implementation of strict environmental and pollution control regulations, as well as government incentives to encourage the purchase and use of electric and hybrid vehicles, are some of the key factors influencing the market's growth. Administrative groups have implemented stricter emission rules as public awareness of discharges has grown. OEMs are being inspired to develop hybrid and electric vehicles by the tightening regulations on vehicle contamination. Automobiles that use both petrol and diesel emit less pollution from the environment than hybrid vehicles. To minimise the impact of ozone-depleting substances and increase vehicle eco-friendliness, legislators in the US and Europe are gradually reducing discharge regulations. Electric Construction Equipment MarketStates in both India and Brazil are considering various ideas, such as reducing the public sector's reliance on CNG creamer and module vehicles. There are additional hybrid electric vehicle options. The Indian government is expected to spend USD 446 million on the project.
