The practise of renting construction equipment for a set period of time by signing contracts outlining the terms and conditions of use of the equipment are known as renting construction equipment. Renting heavy machinery and construction equipment rather than purchasing it has proven to be beneficial to businesses of all sizes all over the world. As a result, the construction equipment rental market has expanded rapidly. Because many industries require such equipment on a seasonal basis, it is prohibitively expensive. Businesses prefer rental equipment because of its flexibility and ability to meet specific needs without the need for maintenance or insurance. Renting is becoming more popular among contractors because rental agreements now include provisions for on-site maintenance, repair, and replacement, which helps businesses reduce expenditures, maintenance expenses, and repair costs. Equipment rental companies are capitalising on potential business opportunities by broadening their global reach through acquisitions or partnerships and strategically incorporating technological upgrades into their fleet. Furthermore, the requirements for transportation, operation, and maintenance are greatly reduced. Both of these factors will drive future construction equipment rental demand. According to the research report, "Global Construction Equipment Rental Market Research Report, 2028," published by Actual Market Research, the market is projected to reach a size of USD 111.70 billion by 2028, up from USD 82.43 billion in 2022. Furthermore, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.30% between 2023 and 2028. The increase in government spending on public infrastructure development has accelerated construction and mining activity in the world's emerging economies. This factor has resulted in high market demand for construction equipment. Rising construction machine prices are encouraging construction companies and contractors to shift their focus to renting construction equipment. Furthermore, the emergence of advanced technologies and an increasing level of automation are expected to drive market growth. During the forecast period, advancements such as equipment service tracking and mapping and digital service for automated service improvements are expected to drive market growth. The global construction equipment rental market is expected to grow in the coming years due to an increase in mining and construction activity, particularly in developing countries. The global construction equipment rental market is expected to expand significantly in the coming years as new technologies such as mapping features, equipment service tracking, and automated service improvement become available. According to the report, the global market is divided into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa. North America leads the market with a roughly 30% share in 2022. Industry participants are expected to concentrate on expanding their footprint in North America, with Canada expected to see increased demand for construction equipment rental services, prompting the government to increase investments in the region. However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to gain traction in the global construction equipment rental market in the near future. Because of the increasing emphasis by governments on developing infrastructure for a sustainable economy, Asia-Pacific is one of the largest markets that has seen a boom in infrastructure and construction development. This region saw an increase in the number of Special Economic Zones (SEZs), hydroelectric projects, dams, highway constructions, metro constructions, airports, and other infrastructure projects to support high-level industrial activities, rising energy demand, and improved connectivity. The global construction equipment rental market is segmented into earthmoving machinery, material handling machinery, concrete and road construction machinery, and others. The earthmoving machinery segment accounted for a major market share of over 50% in 2022. The increasing application of earthmoving excavators for mining, agriculture, and construction industries significantly contributes to segmental growth. Excavators, loaders, dozers, backhoes, and motor graders all have a high load capacity and improved engine performance. These features of earthmoving equipment make them suitable for use in harsh working environments. Moreover, the growing construction of residential and large-scale commercial civil projects has increased the inclination of construction companies and contractors towards leasing earthmoving equipment. On the other hand, the concrete and road construction machinery segment is anticipated to register a higher compound annual growth rate compared to other segments from 2023 to 2028. Road connectivity has the potential to define the future economy of the country, as an established infrastructure plays a crucial role in improving trade and commerce activities. In November 2021, the U.S. federal government passed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal (Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act), which enables investments worth $110 billion to rebuild roads, bridges, and others in five years. Safe streets and roads will be developed to reduce traffic fatalities and improve connectivity. Moreover, many developing countries in the Asia Pacific, such as China and India, focus on creating better road connectivity. For instance, China's "One Belt, One Road" initiative will connect China with European countries. The total estimated cost for the overall project is USD 1.3 trillion. Similarly, according to the new budget for 2022–23, the Indian government has planned to invest $529.7 billion to improve road connectivity by developing new highways. Thus, the government's increasing investment in mega road and highway construction projects is expected to create a demand for concrete and road construction machinery across the world. Concrete and road construction equipment includes cement and transit mixers, compactors and road rollers, pavers and asphalt finishers, and others. Furthermore, rapid industrialization and rising demand for construction equipment for industrial applications are expected to drive significant market growth in the material handling equipment segment. Dumpers dump trucks, and tippers (articulated and rigid), cranes (tower cranes and mobile cranes), mast- and telescopic handlers, and forklifts are examples of material handling construction equipment. With a greater emphasis on maximising output, industries are seeking to reduce capital expenditures, a large portion of which is spent on purchasing material handling machinery. Major corporations can increase their profit margins by taking advantage of the same rental benefit. Over the medium term, the expanding construction industry, particularly in developing countries, will drive market growth due to numerous growth opportunities in the residential, non-residential, and infrastructure sectors. For example, the increased construction of multi-family houses (due to the growing trend of nuclear families) as well as increased investments in the construction of motorways, bridges, metros, smart cities, highways, and roads as a result of rising population and urbanisation Furthermore, the rising trend towards automation is expected to fuel market growth. Based on these factors, residential construction equipment rental is dominating the market. However, increased commercial use is driving market growth for non-residential applications. This segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 6% in the coming years. Factors such as stringent emission regulations for construction machinery are anticipated to hamper the growth of the market by 2028. Constant improvements in the infrastructure industry and a diverse range of cutting-edge construction equipment in rental fleets are anticipated to spur demand for construction equipment rental services across the globe. Companies in the market are skilled at identifying consumers and accordingly repositioning construction equipment in diverse locations to control the swelling demand from the real estate sector in residential and commercial areas. Furthermore, stringent guidelines, the cumulative ownership price, and financial restraints are some of the important motives stimulating the growth of the global construction equipment rental market. In addition to rentals, industry companies provide new and used equipment sales, maintenance, and safety training to meet users’ earnings and revenue goals. The construction equipment rental market share is growing due to strong demand for heavy machinery equipment and increasing economic growth around the world. Furthermore, as the number of smart city initiatives grows, the market will expand rapidly. Large construction projects by various regional governments, such as Al Maktoum Airport in Dubai, the South-to-North Water Transfer Project in China, the Crossrail Project in the UK, and the Rashtriya Rajmarg Zila Sanjoyokta Pariyojna in India, are expected to contribute to the construction equipment rental market's growth. Nowadays, contractors and dealers are opting for rentals to reduce the size of their fleets and lower the complexity in organisations that may otherwise affect activities, namely asset disposals, logistics, maintenance, and procurement. The Construction Equipment Rental Association (CERA) stated that there is a substantial growth in the number of rental service consumers in emerging economies, such as Mexico, India, and China. It is mainly occurring as small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) focus on gaining more flexibility. Rapid technological advancement in the automobile and heavy equipment sectors has increased the efficiency and performance of construction machines. The prominent players in the equipment market are primarily focusing on developing smarter machines by incorporating proprietary technology systems. The telematics system provides brief information about the location and level of performance of construction equipment as well as the vehicle. Data relayed through the system includes engine hours idling, GPS location, and fuel consumption; however, the systems require huge investment, which makes them unaffordable for many small builders and contractors. Thus, the construction equipment rental service has overcome the issue by removing the total cost of ownership and providing them with rental options. However, many factors are driving the growth of the construction equipment rental market, and the pandemic has posed a severe challenge to its market. The 2019–20 pandemic has resulted in global supply chain disruptions, shutting down several production facilities, which has harshly affected the infrastructure industry and subsequently affected the equipment rental industry.

Covid-19 Impacts: The demand from the equipment rental industry was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The global lockdown restrictions prevented the fulfilment of contractual obligations, resulting in a sharp decline in market revenue. The pandemic has delayed the completion of public infrastructure and private housing projects. Additionally, after the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic across the key economies, most of the leading market players registered a significant drop in their revenue generation and profit margins. Further, the sudden closure of the manufacturing facility, which affected the rate of daily output from the production facilities, played a pivotal role in plummeting the sales of these market players. However, the market witnessed substantial growth in 2021 as many rental businesses took advantage of the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. The global construction industry moved at an erratic pace each time a wave of COVID-19 hit, prompting small and medium-sized construction firms to rent rather than buy equipment. The uncertainty in the construction sector is expected to be exacerbated by rising commodity prices, a shortage of skilled labour, and high interest rates for construction companies. Therefore, the above factors are expected to increase the acceptance of rental construction equipment in the market.
