This report presents competitive analysis of manufacturers engaged in fabrication of truck chassis-mounted equipment used to access work areas at heights or below grade—aerial buckets and bridge inspection platforms—in the United States and Canada. Included are chassis class breakouts of shipments and market shares, market dynamics, demand factors, outlook, as well as profiles of 19 industry participants.
The aerial bucket segment has a mix of very large and small players, with small manufacturers focused on local markets and usually a specific type of equipment. Most large manufacturers supply equipment worldwide. Barriers to entry are high, as existing manufacturers are deeply entrenched with well-established brands.
Leading manufacturers dominate the aerial bucket segment, with the three leading players accounting for 73% of unit shipments and 78% of dollar value of sales. Manufacture of bridge inspection platforms is a niche business with a handful of manufacturers.
Primary customer segments for bridge inspection trucks are government agencies that undertake bridge inspection, including state, county and municipal agencies and quasi-government agencies, such as states’ bridge and turnpike authorities, Departments of Transportation, etc. Municipalities and utility companies are the main buyer segments for aerial bucket trucks.
These and other topics are the subject of this report. The report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
Included with this report is an Excel file containing eight worksheets: summary, units and dollars in alphabetical order, units and dollars in rank order, manufacturers by location, and separate breakouts for aerial reach bucket truck/bodies and bridge inspection platforms.
