Propelled By Growing Demand From Construction Sector The Global Steel Tracks And Rubber Tracks Market To Show Major Growth

Steel and rubber tracks are essential components used in heavy machinery and construction equipment such as crawler cranes, crawler dozers, backhoe loaders and excavators. They enable the equipment to move on surfaces that wheels cannot traverse and provide superior traction in muddy, sandy and rocky surfaces. Steel tracks offer high durability while rubber tracks absorb shock and ensure smooth movement.

The global steel tracks and rubber tracks market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.13 billion in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.9% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
The construction industry has been growing at a steady rate owing to rapid urbanization and large-scale infrastructure development projects across both developed and developing economies. Increasing number of construction activities has augmented the demand for heavy machinery and equipment that use steel and rubber tracks for movement. The track systems provide better grip and mobility on challenging terrain commonly found on construction sites. Hence, steady growth of the construction sector has emerged as a key trend propelling the sales and demand for various steel and rubber tracks globally in recent years.

SWOT Analysis
Strength: Steel tracks and rubber tracks have widespread applications in various industries like construction, mining, agriculture, and logistics. They provide better traction and stability over uneven terrains compared to wheels.
