High Cost of Ownership and Limited Range of Application to Challenge Mobile Crane Market Growth

The market is plagued by a number of challenges, including the high cost of ownership and maintenance, a limited range of suitable applications, and the need for specialized training. To address these challenges, SkyQuest has conducted a study of the mobile crane industry to identify key opportunities and potential growth drivers. Our analysis reveals that the market faces considerable obstacles but also considerable potential. Here are key findings:

1. The high cost of ownership and maintenance is one of the main barriers to growth in the mobile crane market. The average cost of ownership stands at $85,000 per machine, far beyond the reach of many businesses. To lower costs and make mobile cranes more accessible to larger companies, we recommend that manufacturers focus on developing cost-effective modular hardware and software platforms that can be upgraded or customized as needed.

2. The limited range of suitable applications is another challenge facing the mobile crane industry. Unlike stationary cranes that are used in a variety of applications such as construction, mining, and transportation, mobile cranes are mainly used for industrial construction tasks such as site work, installation, and rigging. To tap into this market opportunity, we recommend that manufacturers develop new applications for mobile cranes, such as using them for offshore construction work.
