The global telehandler market size is touted to touch 6684 units at 2.6% CAGR over the assessment period (2010-2020). Telescopic handlers or telehandlers are lifting machines that are generally mounted on the vehicle. It comes with a telescopic boom which helps in facilitating lifting heights of around 50 feet or above. These machines are widely used in construction industries and agriculture. As opposed to other types of machinery, it is extremely versatile in nature. Telehandlers can be utilized for carrying out various tasks, resting on the attached accessories on the telescopic boom. Compared to a forklift, a telehandler offers higher power yet enjoys similar maneuverability, thereby offering the perfect balance between usability, power and reach. Being highly mobile, telehandlers can be driven to most location and sites. It is versatile to navigate on different working environments as it offers three steering modes- crab steering, 4-wheel drive and front wheel. Using various attachments, it can be used as a crane, skid-steer loader, wheel loader, tractor, cherry picker or lift truck. The best part about using a telehandler is that it helps in replacing a large volume of manual lifting on a work site, thus making complicated lifting and moving much easier.
There are plentiful factors that is boosting the growth of the telehandler market. These factors as per the Market Research Future (MRFR) report include growing demand for systems in the construction machinery that is technologically advanced due to high productivity rate, widespread application in agriculture and construction industries, developments and innovations in the infrastructure industry, and assorted range of latest construction equipment and tools in the fleets. Telehandler over the years have evolved into sophisticated construction equipment from a typical farming and landscaping equipment due to its 360-degree movement capability and the capacity of bearing high load. The ability of telehandlers for performing various tasks especially in construction and farming will further add to the growth of the market. Also, the expansion of the rental construction equipment market resulted in the increase in collaboration amid rental fleet owners and construction equipment manufacturers based on the construction sector’s expansion. This in turn is prognosticated to propel the growth of the telehandler market over the assessment period. On the contrary, rising input price results in higher operational cost that may hinder the growth of the telehandler market over the assessment period. Also, balancing the price structure coupled with analyzing the need of such machines for long term in specific application is again predicted to deter the growth of the telehandler market over the assessment period.
