2016 will be the year of heavy equipment

Since heavy equipment industry and the construction industry are so closely interconnected with each other that they have an ever lasting impact on each other. For instance, if the construction industry is not doing well, the impact will definitely reflect on the heavy equipment industry as well. Heavy equipment companies will find it hard to sell their machines in the market as there will be no buyers for them. If the buyers are also having a hard time to deal with any crisis that comes up in the construction sector, they are most evidently not going for any more purchases of machines and will wait for the market to resurrect. Till that time, heavy equipment companies will be out of business.

However, things are better off and the year 2015 was indeed a good one for both the industries. The construction sector was at its peak and so was the heavy equipment industry. It was believed that no other sector was able to generate employment as much as the construction sector and they had given big orders to produce earth moving machines. Moreover, with the advent of Paris summit that was held last year, it was urged to many such heavy equipment producing companies to concentrate of manufacturing machines that emit less carbon. The goal is to reduce carbon footprint so that we can all make this world a livable place and are not tormented by natural calamities.

After this summit, government of various countries have asked these companies to focus on producing green machines and are simultaneously also trying to prepare a market for it. Governments are ready to waive some taxes if the construction companies are willing to go green and reduce carbon footprint. This will be a big step towards having a clean environment and may also garner support from people within the industry. Once the government of all countries issues law that will state companies using green heavy equipment will save on tax for the next few years there will be an increase in the sale of eco-friendly machines. Big construction houses will no longer want to work on the traditional machines and will demand for green machines.

This will give the opportunity for the heavy equipment manufacturing companies to design machines that emit less carbon. It is therefore believed that the year 2016 is an instrumental year for both the construction and the heavy equipment industry. This year will possibly see a change in the nature of machines and the earth moving companies will have to work hard to keep up to the demand of the construction industry. Since this will be the beginning, the heavy equipment companies have to ensure that the machines they produce should be of ace quality as there are high chances that due to shift in technology they might end up messing the overall product. They have to make sure that the goodwill that they have created and maintained should not be tarnished by the change in technology.
