How Component Shortages Are Changing the Construction Equipment Industry

How Component Shortages Are Changing the Construction Equipment Industry

September 22, 2022

New study by Roland Berger and Off-Highway Research examines the causes and effects of ongoing component scarcity affecting construction equipment

In our study, Roland Berger and Off-Highway Research explore causes of the shortages, and how leading construction equipment companies think about this growing and seemingly non-transitory challenge. We also share our view on how to navigate these challenges, address short-, medium-, and long-term uncertainty, and propose key strategies to transform industry supply from a simple delivery function into a critical value driver.

This report was jointly researched and written as part of the Knowledge Partnership between Roland Berger and Off-Highway Research (OHR). The partnership is a comprehensive agreement encompassing content and promotion for this paper and OHR's 2022 Off-Highway Conference.
