Growing Construction Industry and Versatile use of Backhoe Loaders to propel its Market Growth in the Near Future

A heavy equipment vehicle, backhoe loader, consists of a tractor-like unit pinned with a bucket or shovel on the front and on the back, with a small backhoe. These are usually used in small construction projects such as fixing urban roads, building small houses, etc. among developing countries and in urban engineering. A variety of tasks can be accomplished using backhoe loaders including construction, small demolitions, landscaping, breaking asphalt, paving the road, transportation of light building materials, powering building equipment and digging holes/excavation.

Global Backhoe Loaders Market to Surpass Market Value worth US $4 Bn

Considerable growth in construction industry has propelled the growth of global backhoe loaders market since recent past owing to its versatility in performing various tasks. In addition, recent technological developments in production & utilization of backhoe loaders and increasing number of power projects among developing economies have also fuelled the growth of backhoe loaders market. However, substantial cost of backhoe loaders remains a restraining factor for its market growth. A study by Persistence Market Research (PMR) states that the global backhoe loaders market is projected to surpass the market value worth US $4 Bn by 2026-end and India will remain the most lucrative market for backhoe loaders during 2016 to 2026.

Low-Horsepower Backhoe Loaders Gaining a Firm Foothold

Recent history of backhoe loaders has witnessed a drop in sales as they are getting replaced by small wheel loaders, mini excavators and similar equipment combinations. However, the most recent niche news is that low horsepower backhoe loaders are gaining a firm foothold. Although Backhoe loader’s horsepower have indeed crawled upwards since a couple of decades owing to the demand for more power by contractors, the efficiency of engines has increased considerably along with hydraulic advancements which has lowered the importance of horsepower and in turn fuelling the demand for low horsepower backhoe loaders.

DL450 Compact Dozer Loader by Case Construction Equipment

One of the prominent market players in the global backhoe loaders market, Case Construction Equipment, has unveiled its DL450 compact dozer loader which is a completely new and fully-integrated design matching the best operating characteristics of compact track loaders (CTL). The DL450 compact dozer loader would provide the performance and power equal to that of a small dozer and will be capable to perform all operations of skid steers and compact track loaders. The DL450’s core features a C-frame dozer interface connecting directly to the machine’s chassis. This provides stability and smooth operation like that of a CTL, with all stresses and operating power channeled through machine’s chassis instead of the loader arms. In addition, the C-frame is capable of being unpinned from the machine’s chassis with ease transmuting the DL450 into a standard CTL.

SANY America’s first ever Backhoe Loader

Another innovative introduction to backhoe loaders was witnessed at CON EXPO 2017 by SANY America as it announced its new BL70C, the first ever backhoe loader offered by SANY. This BL70C is engineered with precision providing maximized performance, machine uptime and fuel economy to the end-user. This machine is enough powerful to perform any application and is easy for transportation. With a power shift ZF transmission which is electronically controlled, BL70C provides uninterrupted power flow. This backhoe loader is expected to possess versatility and power to become the ideal machine handling different jobs every day.
