Steel and Rubber Tracks Market

The growing construction industry to boost the growth of the Steel Tracks and Rubber Tracks Market

The global Steel Tracks and Rubber Tracks Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.13 Bn or Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.7% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Steel tracks and rubber tracks are specialized continuous tracks that are used in construction equipment, mining equipment, agricultural equipment and other off-road vehicles. They provide better traction, transportation and maneuverability in rough terrains, muddy and sandy areas as compared to conventional tires. Steel tracks are made of hardened steel links connected by pins whereas rubber tracks are comprised of steel cables encased in rubber compound. They distribute the vehicle’s weight over a large ground contact area to prevent getting stuck. This reduces soil compaction and allows working in sensitive environments.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends in the steel tracks and rubber tracks market is the increasing demand from construction industry. There is a rapid growth in infrastructure, housing, commercial construction globally which is fueling the demand for construction machinery. Steel tracks and rubber tracks provides better traction and stability for these heavy construction vehicles to move on rough sites and transport heavy materials efficiently. They prevent equipment slippage and sinking into muddy or soft soil conditions common at construction areas. This has been a major factor augmenting the sales of steel tracks and rubber tracks in recent years.

Porter’s Analysis

Threat of new entrants: The steel tracks and rubber tracks market requires large capital investments to set up manufacturing facilities for tracks, making the threat of new entrants moderate.
