The delivery and placement of concrete with over-the-road vehicles is accomplished by three types of vehicles—concrete mixer trucks, concrete boom trucks and volumetric mixers. This report is a rigorous investigation and analysis of manufacturers and markets for these products in the United States and Canada. Key information includes size of the market in 2017, including market size by mixer type; competitive positions and market shares; production by region; and market outlook for each category. Also included are profiles on 18 industry participants.
Traditional rear discharge mixers accounted for approximately 65% of units produced in 2017. Front discharge mixers offer several advantages over rear discharge mixers—one-man operation, better view of the target, higher discharge rate, longer reach—but these vehicles, being built from the ground up, have a considerably higher initial purchase price than rear discharge mixers, thus limiting their popularity.
Concrete boom pump trucks are used in large pour jobs; traditional concrete mixer trucks discharge their loads into the chute of a concrete pump for placement. This segment has significant import content.
Volumetric mixer trucks are primarily suitable for small jobs. Truck-mounted bins discharge materials into the vehicle’s hopper, allowing the concrete to be mixed on site. The advantages of these units are that there are no production overruns or waste of materials, and custom blends for each pour allow for different deliveries on each run.
The North American market for concrete delivery and placement vehicles was valued at nearly $786 million in 2017 and involved 18 manufacturers. McNeilus continues to dominate the industry. It has major advantages in its huge direct distribution network and parent OshKosh’s in-house chassis production capability. Smaller players remain viable, however, through regional focus and product customization.
Economic events impacting the construction industry in recent years resulted in several consolidations, closures and acquisition activity. However this market has become increasingly stable due to growth in the economy and an upward trend in the housing and infrastructure sectors.
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.
