The Asia Pacific truck loader crane market was severely affected in 2020 due to COVID-19 transmission. Significant virus spread in various regional component supplier & crane supplier countries, such as India, China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan, has resulted in the enforcement of stringent lockdown. Disruptions in the supply chain and shutdown of manufacturing facilities have adversely impacted the global production of truck loader cranes. However, the market is anticipated to experience significant growth in 2022 owing to considerable government investments in infrastructure development.
