The market scenario of access equipment industry continues to be flat.

Although there has been an increase in awareness of the use of access equipment for safe and productive work at heights, compared to matured markets of Europe, the US, South America, Australia, Singapore, the Middle East, Japan, South Korea and China the growth in India has been dismal and nowhere close to its potential.
Aerial work platforms are not just machines that ensure safety to people when they are working at height but alongside it vastly increases productivity. Work can be done more efficiently and quickly, and timelines can be met.
As the access equipment industry matures in India and users become more aware on the advantages of using such equipment over conventional practices of working at heights, the rental sector in India is poised for a very bright and promising future.

Mature markets like North America, Australia and Japan have shown rapid growth. Emerging economies like Brazil and China have shown impressive growth in the recent past. We definitely see India featured prominently in this coveted list in the near future,
