Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The Site Preparation industry is highly fragmented and there are no operators that have a market share greater than 5%. In 2015, 84.9% of enterprises employ fewer than five staff members and 92.5% have fewer than 10. Operators are typically small, dispersed regionally and cater for local clients. The economic viability of moving heavy machinery over long distances is limited, meaning a local focus is more cost effective for operators, as well as helping them build relationships and reputation. Several enterprises are larger and operate in multiple industries, but they are not large enough to be dominant. The four largest players are estimated to have a combined market share of just 14.8%.
