UAE Construction Equipment Rental Market- Overview

The construction equipment rental market is a service industry that offers construction machinery, equipment, and tools of all sizes, weights, and shapes to end-users for a limited time. Construction companies favor these services because they allow temporary equipment to be rented without purchasing the required equipment. Apart from saving unnecessary business expenses, it also prevents excessive depreciation of equipment over time. Rental equipment providers offer a wide range of machinery and equipment, including mini-excavators, compressors, pumps, and more. UAE builders focus extensively on sustainable construction practices and promote the use of eco-friendly materials in their buildings. The growing investment in transportation, infrastructure, and the oil & gas industry, coupled with convenient machinery access, has fueled UAE construction equipment rental market.

UAE Construction Equipment Rental Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Flourishing Oil and Gas Industry

UAE is a major oil and gas importer of the world with around 30% of the country’s gross domestic product directly based on this oil and gas output. With a flourishing oil and gas industry,UAE construction equipment rental market is also projected to gain significant traction. Oil and gas production and extraction require a great deal of heavy machinery and equipment, including elevators, conveyors, mining trucks, heavy vehicles, small tools and dies, and construction tasks such as the setting up of rigs and constructing well foundations.

High Cost of Construction Equipment and Depreciation Involved

Construction equipment involves a high amount of investment. For instance, a new excavator is the most expensive piece in construction, and its cost can range from USD 100,000 to USD 500,000 for a full-size rig and USD 80,000 to USD 150,000 for a mini excavator. Plus, accumulating this equipment also involves depreciation which decreases its value over the years. Therefore, many construction companies chose to rent out the equipment and machinery, reducing their maintenance and technical charges expenses. Due to this, the market is expected to flourish at a high rate.

Restraints

Non-Uniformity in Construction Industry

The construction industry is highly dependent on economic growth and so is the construction equipment rental market. However, in the periods of temporary economic recession or slowdown, the construction activities were halted, resulting in the shortage of consumer demand for construction equipment rental services. Because construction requires large-scale activities and it takes a long time to recover from an economic downturn, this dependency has a significant impact on UAE construction equipment rental industry. This factor acts as a major restraint for UAE construction equipment rental market.

Impact of COVID-19 on UAE Construction Equipment Rental Market

The construction equipment rental market in UAE was greatly affected by the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19-induced pandemic. To stop the spread of COVID-19, UAE had to take unprecedented measures in putting a complete lockdown in place. This resulted in a complete halt in the construction activities in the country, negatively affecting the demand for construction equipment rental services. However, the market is expected to recover soon in the post-COVID-19 period as UAE government pushes for construction activities in the country for economic growth.
