An automotive road roller is a vehicle used for flattening surfaces or uneven terrain. The road roller is a major vehicle used in the construction of roads, buildings, or any other infrastructure. The road roller is utilized in various industries along with various end-use applications such as leveling wastelands, crushing grabbles, and flattening road surfaces. Major types of automotive road rollers are tandem rollers and pneumatic rollers. The Road rollers is used in various models and for various different uses like flattening ground for the buildings, levelling the stones and clay for the road making and others.
Major countries are investing lots of funds and money to improve the infrastructure by developing new buildings, skyscrapers, roads and other infrastructures. However, countries are upgrading their infrastructure and also investing on renovating its cities, which in turn is projected to increase the demand of the construction equipment, which in turn is estimated to propel the demand for automotive road roller.
The trend of incorporation of autonomous and semi-autonomous systems along with fuel-efficient and electronically operated equipment is increasing, which in turn is boosting the co-ordination between different systems and processes in real-time. Increase in number of construction activities along with a rise in the demand for new infrastructure is a key factor that is estimated to drive the automotive road roller market during the forecast period. However, the need for high capital investment is a major restraint of the automotive road roller market.
The global automotive road roller market can be segmented based on horsepower, operation, drum type, end-use application, and region. Based on horsepower, the automotive road roller market can be divided into less than 40HP and more than 40HP. In terms of operation, the automotive road roller market can be divided into pedestrian-operated, ride on smooth surface, ride on soil, and others. Based on drum type, the automotive road roller market can be segregated into single drum, pneumatic-tired roller, tandem drum (vibrating and static), three-point roller, combination roller, and others. In terms of end-user application, the automotive road roller market can be classified into land-fields, construction, road making, industry, and others.
In terms of region, the automotive road roller market can be segregated into Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, Europe, Latin America, and North America. Rapid development in infrastructure coupled with large number of new installations in Asia Pacific are expected to fuel the automotive road roller market in the region. The market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a high growth rate during the forecast period, due to an increase in the demand for construction vehicles in the region. Rising investment for the upgrade of cities and renovation of old facilities in developed regions, such as North America and Europe, are key factors boosting the automotive road roller market in these regions.
