Backhoe Loader Market 2015 - 2021
A backhoe loader is a type of construction vehicle, also known as a loader backhoe or digger. It consists of a tractor-like unit fitted with a shovel in the front, and a backhoe at the back.
Backhoe loaders are the most heavily used loaders in large, medium, and small scale construction projects because of their versatility and small size. They can be fitted with different attachments for tasks such as boring, digging, excavation, and loading. They can be used for a wide variety of tasks such as digging holes or excavation, construction, minor demolition, powering building equipment, breaking asphalt, paving roads, and transportation of light building materials. Most backhoe loaders feature quick-attach mounting systems and auxiliary hydraulic circuits for simplified attachment mounting, increasing the machine's utilisation on site.
The global backhoe loader market can be segmented on the basis of application: industrial sector, civic bodies, agricultural sector, and construction industry.

China and India are the biggest markets for backhoe loaders in the region due to the recent technological developments, significant growth in the construction industry, substantial growth in the construction of dams and canals, and an increasing number of power projects.
In North America, the U.S. represents the largest market for backhoe loaders, followed by Canada. In Europe, France, Germany, Italy, and the U.K. hold major shares in the backhoe loader market due to significant infrastructure development in the region.

Brazil has become the most attractive market in South America, while Russia is a least attractive market in Asia owing to tough economic conditions.
