Introduction: the development status of the world crane industry has changed greatly in the past 20 years. The rapid development of RT (cross-country tire crane) and at (all terrain crane) products has broken the original product and market pattern. Under the impact of economic development and fierce market competition, the world's engineering cranes

current situation of crane development in the world

great changes have taken place in the world engineering crane industry in the past 20 years. The rapid development of RT (cross-country tire crane) and at (all terrain crane) products has broken the original product and market pattern. Under the impact of economic development and fierce market competition, the world engineering crane market further tends to be integrated. At present, the annual sales volume of Engineering cranes in the world has reached about 7.5 billion US dollars. The main producing countries are the United States, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, etc. there are more than 10 world-class companies, mainly concentrated in North America, Japan (Asia) and Europe

the United States is not only the main manufacturer of Engineering cranes, but also one of the largest world markets. However, due to the rapid development of crane industry in Japan and Germany and the rise of RT and at products, the dominant position of American manufacturers in the world market in the 1960s and 1970s is gradually being weakened, thus forming a tripartite confrontation among the United States, Japan and Germany. In recent years, the U.S. economy has rebounded, the market is active, and foreign manufacturers have participated in competition. The strength of American manufacturers has also increased, as exemplified by the rise of Terex crane company. The predecessor of Terex crane company is Colin crane factory in the United States. Since 1995, it has developed into one of the world's top companies through a series of mergers and acquisitions

Japan has become a major manufacturer of Engineering cranes since the 1970s. The quality and quantity of products have improved rapidly, and have been exported to European and American markets. The total annual output ranks first in the world. Since 1992, due to the appreciation of the yen, the decline of domestic infrastructure investment and the Asian financial crisis, the annual output has shown a downward trend. At present, the annual demand of the Japanese market is about 3000 sets

Europe is a market with great potential. European industrial countries are both exporters and importers of Engineering cranes. Germany is the largest European market, followed by Britain, France, Italy and other countries. In the market share of German at products, Liebherr accounts for 53%, grove accounts for 16%, Dematic accounts for 14%, and TADANO and Terex account for about 10% and 5% respectively

the trend of consolidation in the foreign engineering crane industry

the trend of consolidation in the crane manufacturing industry is very similar to the automotive industry. In the automotive industry, general motors, Ford, Renault, BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen and other large companies have embarked on the road of consolidation, and the world markets of these two industries have become increasingly integrated. To gain market share and maintain growth in the mature world market, the shortcut is to buy competitors, and its long-term goal is to compete for the dominant position in the world market. In the crane industry, in a sense, entering the world market means entering North America, Japan (Asia) and Europe

the world's top companies have a strong influence on the world market, but so far no company has achieved a leading position in the above three markets. Four companies have established bases in two major markets: grove and Terex in North America and Europe; TADANO in Asia and Europe; Sumitomo Construction machinery is located in Asia and North America

grove, Terex and TADANO entered the European market by acquiring competitors. Grove first annexed Coles in 1984 and then purchased Krupp in 1995. After the merger of ppm in France and Bendini in Italy in 1995, Terex has acquired other European and American companies in recent years. TADANO annexed German farn company in 1990. Sumitomo acquired linkbell in 1986

Both Liebherr and Dematic export cranes to the Americas and Asia, and Kato also sells its products to Europe. However, the localization of crane production creates more opportunities than relying on local agents. The products of TADANO and Kato are similar, and the chassis of truck crane is also the same, but TADANO has more overseas investment than Kato, so it is in a more favorable position to increase exports and improve the difficulties caused by the shrinking domestic market

while competing for the above markets, most manufacturers also strive to expand their product series. Grove's truck cranes and RT products have the advantage of competing to realize the flattening of enterprise operation. After purchasing Krupp, it also has considerable strength in at products. The company is also preparing to produce crawler cranes. Manituwalker has dominated the crawler crane industry, but it also hopes to achieve the same influence in other crane product fields

in the past, some cooperation among crane manufacturers mostly focused on marketing agreements or license trade agreements. License trade is carried out earlier than comprehensive mergers and acquisitions, and the risk is small, which has a precedent in the industry. However, manufacturing according to the license agreement often ends after expiration due to property rights disputes. Terex has a historical connection with IHI company in Japan. So far, after the experiment, Terex can re analyze the data of curve amplification through the graphic processing module to reach the international level. It also provides IHI crawler cranes painted with the product logo of americancrane. Some people will regard Terex's cooperation with IHI as an example of the feasibility of license trade. However, such agreements are difficult to last, and the result is nothing more than Terex's request to strengthen the control of IHI company or seek to independently produce crawler cranes. IHI has not yet established market share in North America and only acts as a subcontractor. British grove company has opened 5. 5% since 1999 All (function) switches are used to sell crawler cranes and urban cranes. The cooperation agreement signed by TADANO and Hitachi Construction Machinery Co., Ltd. in 1978 to provide products to each other and expand their product series has had little effect. In the case of shrinking domestic market, Hitachi construction machinery announced in February 1999 that it would once again consider expanding the cooperation with fields in the production and sales of mobile cranes. TADANO hopes to have an American manufacturing base, but the time is not yet ripe

having multiple types of products can diversify income. Terex company operates both mining equipment and lifting and handling equipment, including at and RT products, truck cranes, crawler cranes, tower cranes, etc. Based on its experience in producing excavators, linkbairt company has become one of the first manufacturers to apply hydraulic technology to truss jib cranes. However, Sumitomo has separated its crane and excavator enterprises in Japan and the United States (including linkbell), based on the fact that cranes and excavators belong to different industries. Liebherr manufactures excavators, mobile cranes and tower cranes, as well as container handling cranes for how the integrated bending testing machine is used in Ireland. Its enterprises are separate entities
