The report is a complete strategy dossier & brings to forefront & provides key insights as well as an incisive perspective based on a comprehensive assessment as well as analysis of the Key Strategies & Plans of these 7 key Global Construction Equipment manufacturing companies against the backdrop of an evolving industry landscape; marked by a stark downturn across key traditional & emerging markets with significant pressure on order intake & sales levels. Further, with the slowing down of mining activity, the demand for mining equipment, too, has also been impacted significantly.

Thus, with declining order intake & sales numbers being a key concern for almost all key global players of-late almost all major OEMs are in the process of constantly aligning production levels in-line with the demand consequently. Almost, all key emerging economies on the other hand, especially China, grapple with inflationary pressures & are trying to stoke up economic growth momentum under a difficult, complex, challenging & uncertain Global Macroeconomic Environment. Most leading OEMs, however, continue with their focus on development of new platforms, product range extensions & new technologies, in addition, to continued efforts towards further strengthening & deepening of existing presence across emerging markets in order to partially offset the ongoing demand slump in Western Europe & Latin America. Overall, the late resurgence in construction activity in China during Q4 2012 driven by a host of fiscal measures initiated by the Chinese Government augurs well for the industry going forward into 2013. However, the first half of 2013 is expected to be somewhat difficult for the industry with ongoing pressure on sales levels.
