Research and Markets: Global Road-Building Equipment Industry Report 2012


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "The Global Road-Building Equipment Industry 2012" report to their offering.

Current equipment development thrusts in the road-building equipment industry are threefold; the continued application of information technology, increased flexibility of equipment application and reduction in operating costs.

Realization of the three, particularly information technology, results in greater machine complexity and higher costs that differentiate machine offerings and - buyer acceptance - around the world. Users in developing economies are less likely to understand, accept, and pay for the feature-rich, flexible-to-use, more difficult-to-maintain equipment popular in developed economies.

However, the trend towards computer-controlled and integrated road-building machines is inexorable, driven by economic imperatives of efficiency and scale of application requirements. Information technology is making road-building equipment cheaper, more effective and flexible in application, easier to use and safer.
