Steel tracks and rubber tracks are integral components of heavy machinery used in construction, mining, and agriculture. Steel tracks provide strong traction and load-bearing capabilities, while being durable and highly resistant to wear and tear. Rubber tracks offer superior flotation to reduce turf damage and increase maneuverability in soft ground conditions.
The global steel tracks and rubber tracks Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.13 Bn 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:
Growing construction and mining industries have greatly augmented the demand for heavy machinery such as bulldozers, excavators, loaders and tractors that employ steel tracks and rubber tracks.
