Construction equipment rental is a service that concludes a contract with terms of use and rents construction equipment to the end user for a certain period of time. Construction machinery is mainly used to facilitate heavy labour at mine construction sites. According to the Construction Equipment Rental Association, construction equipment rentals have increased significantly and are expected to see a substantial rise in developing countries such as China, India, and Mexico. Local and regional small businesses may prefer rental service businesses to achieve flexibility and generate revenue from their local and regional contractor customer bases. In addition, markets where these rental services have started to emerge have seen significant growth in construction equipment rental, with similar results in the U.S. and Italy. Construction equipment is increasingly being adopted by end users for a wide range of construction activities. Adoption of upgraded and technologically advanced equipment reduces the need for labour and associated costs over a prolonged period of time, as a manual or human workforce would take longer to complete digging, excavation, or trench refilling tasks, among others, while heavy-duty machinery and earth-moving equipment will take a fraction of that time for the same. According to the research report, "Global Construction Equipment Rental Market Research Report, 2023–28," 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 5.30% CAGR between 2023 and 2028.Renting construction equipment not only saves money and investments, but it also eliminates the need for dock or parking space when machinery is not in use.Preventative maintenance, repair, and inspection costs can also be avoided because construction equipment rental companies perform these tasks on a regular basis in order to profit from the machinery in the long run. These businesses are currently focusing on providing onsite services and equipment support, which is improving the customer experience. Caterpillar Inc., for example, dispatches rapid response teams to assist customers in remote locations using mobile service vans. The purchase of new construction equipment necessitates significant down payments as well as a significant investment from the company's operating expenses. Post-purchase overhead costs for construction equipment include loan interest, insurance, licencing, storage, and taxes. Furthermore, equipment owners are responsible for transporting their equipment between job sites. When a company chooses to rent equipment, the provider is responsible for delivering it to new work locations, allowing the company to avoid direct overhead costs. Furthermore, rental companies refresh their fleets of equipment and machinery on a regular basis to ensure that their customers have access to the most up-to-date equipment. Technological advancements in heavy machinery and the automotive industry have resulted in numerous novel features in the construction equipment rental market. Construction equipment manufacturers are focusing heavily on incorporating cutting-edge safety features such as 360-degree camera visual, lift assist, and supplementary work lights, as well as striving to provide systems that increase operational productivity while requiring minimal maintenance. However, these features come at a high cost, which is prohibitively expensive for many small contractors and builders. Because of these factors, professionals are more inclined to rent construction equipment. Prominent market players are deploying advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and others to develop and provide consumers with more innovative products and solutions. Moreover, major market players are developing technologies that are not only more advanced than the conventional ones but also solutions that can help overcome social and environmental challenges. This is attracting more end users, and advanced machinery is being extensively utilised for excavation, construction, and other associated processes. However, integrating advanced technologies into construction equipment entails additional costs, which make such equipment unaffordable for many small builders and contractors, who in turn may prefer to use rented construction equipment. Replacing conventional equipment with telematics-integrated machinery is a rising trend in the construction equipment market. Telematics is integrated into the construction equipment for GPS fleet tracking, maximising fleet utilization, safeguarding equipment from theft, improving billing, increasing equipment utilization, and others. For instance, in 2020, Appareo, a US-based manufacturer of electronic and software solutions, launched a cellular asset tracking device for off-highway equipment called the AT-130 (IP69K). The device is embedded with GPS and cellular capabilities, has a high battery life, and can withstand high pressure. The high-performance positioning and motion-sensing capabilities ensure that motion-based reporting is done based on true machinery repositioning, which helps to extend the battery life of the equipment and reduce false alarms. It has been crucial in incorporating the current government's laser-sharp focus on infrastructure projects, as well as a broad financial and economic push bolstered by the order to pursue a favourable regulatory authoritarian rule, which has resulted in India becoming one of the world's greatest connectivity underdeveloped countries, with nearly 27 km of motorways being built throughout the country these days. United Rentals, Inc. (US) is the leading player in the construction equipment rental market and has adopted organic and inorganic strategies to sustain its market position. Ashtead Group plc (UK) is another major company in the construction equipment rental market. It has adopted organic and inorganic strategies to sustain its position in the construction equipment rental market. • In October 2018, United Rentals, Inc. acquired WesternOne Rentals & Sales LP, a Canada-based leading equipment rental provider of aerial lifts and heat solutions, to expand its business in Western Canada. • In September 2018, United Rentals, Inc. acquired Blueline Rental, a leading North American general rental provider based in Texas, US, to extend its footprints to various large metropolitan areas in North America, including the US coasts, the Gulf South, and Ontario. This acquisition is in line with the company's "Grow the Core" strategy to expand its presence in the local and mid-sized customer segment. • In March 2018, Ashtead Group acquired the business and assets of New England Rent-All Equipment, Inc. (NERA) for a cash consideration of approximately USD 4 million. NERA is a general equipment rental business based in Massachusetts, US. • In February 2018, Sunbelt US, an operating company of Ashtead Group in the US, acquired the business and assets of Beaupre Aerial Equipment, Inc. and Beaupre Equipment Services, Inc. (together, Beaupre) for a cash consideration of USD 50 million. Beaupre is an aerial work platform rental business based in Minnesota, US. Covid-19 Impacts: The COVID-19 outbreak is expected to positively impact the global construction equipment rental market. Lowered risk-taking capacity by construction companies owing to the pandemic is expected to contribute to the growth of the market. The high cost associated with the purchase of construction equipment, such as the heavy down payment, repair and maintenance expenses, and other operational expenses such as licensing, insurance, and tax, among others, is influencing the adoption of equipment on a rental basis, especially among large construction sites. This increase in rental equipment adoption throughout the construction industry is also influencing equipment manufacturers to expand their offering portfolio of equipment renting services in order to cater to a larger consumer base. For instance, Mahindra Construction Equipment (MCE) not only sells its product offerings but also offers them on a rental basis to construction companies.
