1. Industry Backdrop: Global Construction Equipment Industry on a Tough Terrain:-

The Global Construction Equipment industry has been on a tough terrain with most OEMs facing significant pressure on machinery sales, order intake & profitability going forward into 2014 amid difficult & uncertain global macroeconomic environment & conditions further compounded by the ongoing slump in mining activity that has altered the product sales mix across OEMs and has subsequently impacted profitability. The EU economy is slowly making an egress from the slump and making steady recovery while the U.S. economy is poised to move towards more stability in 2014 with a favourable fiscal & monetary policy stance & outlook. The construction activity in the U.S. has been improving of-late driven by strong housing starts which are estimated to touch 1 million in 2013 while projections for 2014 indicate towards the 1.18 million mark. Strong housing starts & modest non-residential construction activity are likely to be key drivers of replacement demand in North America over near term.

2. Chinese Economy Likely to Stay Steady at around 7.5% GDP Growth Rate for Q4 2013 & 2014:-

The economic growth in China; which has been of strategic significance for the global construction equipment industry; registered a decent 7.5% growth during Q3 2013, driven mostly by fiscal measures which had been a much needed change. The estimates for Chinese GDP growth for Q4 2013 & Q1 2014 indicate towards the 7.7% level despite continued economic tightening putting pressure on credit growth besides slowing down of factory output and weakening of export orders in December 2013. Overall, the GDP growth target for the World's second largest economy for 2014 is likely to be set at around 7.5% by the Chinese Government which is likely to match the 2013 level more or less.

3. Improved Construction Activity Likely in 2014:-

Thus, 2014 is likely to be much better for the construction equipment industry with a number of variables favouring growth in construction activity across Traditional Markets & China. However, managing cost base efficiently & optimally besides sporadic currency fluctuations that pose a significant threat of profitability erosion across OEMs remain key challenges for the industry. The magnitude of impact of the strengthening of Swedish Krona on Volvo's profits had been to the tune of SEK 1 billion during Q3 2013 while weakening of Japanese Yen against the USD eroded Caterpillar's profitability by $181 million during Q3 2013.

4. Strong, Long-Term Industry Fundamentals:-

The industry fundamentals, however, remain solid and the long-term industry growth prospects still appear robust, driven, primarily, by the significant anticipated investments likely to be made towards infrastructure repair & rebuilding across traditional markets, especially, in the United States and rapid infrastructure development required across emerging markets to sustain economic growth & rapid urbanization.
