A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm BlueWeave Consulting revealed that UAE construction equipment rental market was worth USD 18.0 billion in 2020. According to the study, the market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.0%, earning revenue of around USD 26.8 billion by the end of 2027. Infrastructural development and increasing construction activities of residential and commercial spaces are driving demand for construction equipment rentals. Additionally, the high cost of construction equipment has prompted contractors to opt for rental services, which prove to be very cost-effective and saves unnecessary business expenditure. Furthermore, the flourishing oil and gas industry in UAE is also boosting the market demand for construction equipment rental because of the activities involved in oil and gas production and extraction. Construction workers use repair drilling equipment, hand tools, and transport materials to and from sites, which requires construction equipment. The economic slowdown and its impacts on construction activities may, however, impede the market growth.

Emerging Rental Business in UAE Driving Market Growth

The construction equipment rental market is relatively new and is still in its nascent stage in the UAE. Therefore, it holds excellent growth potential. As new players enter the market, the price competitiveness is likely to increase, offering great deals to contractors or consumers. This is expected to propel the market growth in the forecast period. Furthermore, the increasing penetration of rental services is also going to offer a wide range of machinery, equipment, and tools, which will further decline the need for buying these.

Growing Preference for Rental Equipment is Favoring the Growth of UAE Construction Equipment Rental Market

Construction equipment rentals are gaining massive popularity among contractors, infrastructure companies, oil and gas industries, and other sectors. Rental equipment is typically less expensive than purchasing new equipment because it is available at a lower price than buying new equipment. Purchasing new equipment is a very hectic process as it involves buying costs, coupled with repair and maintenance costs, depreciation costs, etc. Thus, the construction and other sectors intend to reduce their financing burden by switching to rental equipment, thus driving UAE construction equipment rental market forward.

UAE Construction Equipment Rental Market - By Operating Weight

Based on operating weight, the UAE construction equipment rental market is segmented into less than 100 tons, 100-200 tons, and more than 200 tons. Among these, the less than 100-ton segment holds the largest market share. The standard construction equipment usually hired on rent, such as wheel loaders, tractors, excavators, motor graders, etc., belong to this operating weight category. On the other hand, the 100 - 200-ton segment also covers a substantial share in the market because of the many heavy-duty construction equipment belonging to this category, such as hydraulics, landscape tiller, etc.
