The global construction equipment rental market is expected to exceed $140 billion by 2024, according to Global Market Insights. Europe and North America are the largest markets; China and India are among those showing strong growth.
The US commercial and industrial equipment rental and leasing industry includes about 15,000 establishments (single-location firms and units of multi-location firms) with combined annual revenue of about $80 billion.
Competitive Landscape
Demand is driven by business and industrial activity, particularly in nonresidential construction. The profitability of individual companies depends on the merchandising mix and cost of financing rental inventory. Large companies have economies of scale in buying equipment and having multiple outlets to share equipment. Small companies can compete effectively by providing specialty products for a local market and by offering superior customer service. The US industry is concentrated: the top 50 companies account for about 55% of revenue.
