Crane Sales Performance in Australia

While mining slows, oil and gas pick up the pace…

With the slowdown in construction, due to the mining sector being taken over by a production phase, crane sales in the GROVE All Terrain and GROVE Rough Terrain products have also taken a backseat. However, other areas of the crane sales market have started to pick up. For example, the local construction business has begun to show a lot more interest in GROVE’s 100t to 300t class of cranes, which is helping account for the drop in traditional mining markets. Luckily the oil and gas industry is ramping up all the time and we expect to see its growth continue. Alongside this, we are also noticing an increased interest in the TIDD PC25 across a number of industries, all thanks to its class leading safety features. This in turn has led to some new opportunities in the Pick and Carry market as well.

Still going strong…

A strong interest in used equipment has seen the APAC region look to Australia for its good quality used cranes to help with their ongoing infrastructure programs. This has given local operators the ability to trade in their old cranes for newer models and receive good change over pricing for any of their used equipment. With the Western Australian crane landscape constantly changing, and different projects cropping up every day, it just goes to show the resilience of the local market and the ability for crane solutions to be sold into them.
