Demand for truck cranes has been showing traction in recent years, led by road construction, refinery expansions, railways & metro projects, waterways etc, and, according to industry estimates, it is likely to remain buoyant.
    Demand for truck cranes has been showing traction in recent years, led by road construction, refinery expansions, railways & metro projects, waterways etc, and, according to industry estimates, it is likely to remain buoyant. However, an interesting trend is being seen with demand becoming more value-based. Customer preference is veering towards greater safety and space which is creating demand for cranes between 40 to 80 tons and beyond, though demand for 25 and 30 tons is also likely to be in place.
    Advancements in truck-mounted cranes for higher performance, more manoeuvrability through adaption of four-wheel drive, advanced engines, and simplified electronics are some of the major initiatives being undertaken by manufacturers.
