According to a new market research study on “SAM Automated Overhead Crane Market to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis and Forecast by Type, Level of Automation, and Industry” is expected to reach US$ 137.54 million by 2028 from US$ 105.26 million in 2021. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2021 to 2028. The report provides trends prevailing in the SAM automated overhead crane market along with the drivers and restraints pertaining to the market growth. Rising number of distribution and warehousing centers and adoption of industry 4.0 for smarter lifting equipment are the major factor driving the growth of the SAM automated overhead crane market. However, high upfront costs involved in implementation and maintenance hinders the growth of SAM automated overhead crane market.
In case of COVID-19, SAM is highly affected specially Brazil. In the aviation industry, managing a hanger requires moving equipment that is heavy and huge. Engines, interiors, ailerons, and other crucial parts must be moved cautiously and placed accurately. An overhead crane makes sure that all such aspects of aviation assembly and repair are carried out carefully. Due to various limitations on air cargo, overhead cranes required in this sector observed significantly less demand. Overhead cranes are widely used for loading and unloading massive units at seaports. A seaport is considered as the gateway of international commerce, and these sites are considerably busy with arrival and departure of ships from all over the world. Due to cross border trade restrictions, international trade operations were reduced notably. This affected the demand for overhead cranes of various types required in the transportation industry. Consequently, this pandemic has also impacted the sales of respective spare parts and components related to automated overhead cranes. Since the governments announced containment measures, the region experienced decline in manufacturing and construction activities, which ultimately affected the adoption of automated overhead cranes from various end users. Moreover, the disruption in distribution of automated overhead cranes in the region affected the market from supply side. However, after the situation normalizes, this market will witness a promising growth in this region.
The SAM automated overhead crane market is segmented on the basis of type, level of automation, industry, and country. Based on type, the market is segmented into bridge cranes, gantry cranes, monorail cranes, jib cranes, and others.
