Strategic Factor Analysis Summary (SFAS) Framework Analysis: 2018-2019 - Global Top 7 Construction Equipment Manufacturers: Caterpillar, CNH Industrial, Hitachi, John Deere, Komatsu, Liebherr, Volvo -

The Global Construction Equipment market has made an effective comeback; after a significant downturn spanning multiple years; with demand levels for 2017 & H1 2018 witnessing a strong growth globally with resurgence seen across most key markets with an uptick in construction activity, world economy gaining traction, return of Chinese spending on infrastructure development projects after an extended hiatus and uptick in the energy sector activity post recovery in global crude oil prices to their regular levels with energy commodity prices projected to increase by 20% year on year in 2018.

Base metal prices, too, are projected to register an increase in 2018 which is likely to provide a boost to mining activity.

However, macroeconomic environmental uncertainties & the onset of the trade war amongst the world's two largest economies pose most significant downside risks to the World economic growth.

Against this backdrop, this SFAS Framework Analysis will thus be crucial to understand & assess as to how are the OEMs strategically positioned in a rapidly changing and evolving industry dynamics and market environment and how adaptive, responsive & prepared are they to be able to ride the waves of change & disruption blowing through the market.
