Construction Machinery Manufacturers

Overview

The 650 firms in the US that manufacture construction machinery produces a wide range of products, but common types include backhoes, excavators, loaders, concrete mixers, dredging equipment, jack hammers, cranes, augers and drills, pile drivers, and paving machines, as well as attachments and replacement parts. Key customers include construction machinery dealers and rental firms, construction companies, farms, government, waste and recycling firms, and landscapers.

Dependence on Economy and Construction Activity

Construction machinery sales tend to shrink during economic downturns when building slows and during periods of high interest rates that make financing high-ticket items less favorable.
