This report is a rigorous investigation and analysis of manufacturers and markets for hoist and container truck/body production in the United States and Canada, providing estimates of market sizing, key segmentation, demand factors, trends and outlook for each of four truck/body types used to collect and transport material in the waste, recycling, scrap and demolition industries: roll-off cable hoists, hooklift hoists, load luggers and container carriers.
Hoists are standardized equipment with not much difference in product design across manufacturers. Very few companies exclusively concentrate on hoists. This product is typically manufactured along with roll-off trailers and other truck equipment.
Estimated shipments of truck-mounted roll-off/cable hoists, hooklift hoists, and container carrier bodies in North America in 2017 were valued at $224 million.
Two types of truck-mounted hoists are analyzed in this report: roll-off cable hoists use a cable system that hooks onto a container and pulls it up onto the back of the truck, using hydraulics to winch the cables. Hooklift hoists use a hydraulic lift connected to a hook to pull a container onto a truck bed or push it off in the dumping motion.
Two additional types of container handling equipment are discussed – load luggers and container carriers. Load luggers are useful and economical when haul distances are short, when large quantities of heavy waste are generated, and where the use of conventional refuse collection vehicles is not practical. These feature a vertical cargo-handling device that resembles a door frame (horizontal cross member) with a hydraulic hoist mechanism. Hydraulic cylinders activate the lifting arms for mounting and dismounting lugger containers.
Container carriers transport individual stationary containers and can also load multiple containers onto a trailer to transport to a job site. When equipped with a rotator, these carriers can invert the container and unload its contents into a top-loading, larger refuse container. These operate only with hydraulics and do not feature chains to hook onto containers.
Growth in the construction industry and replacement demand are expected to drive demand in this segment. For the share of hoists and container handling trucks servicing the waste collection industry, growth rates are expected to follow those of refuse collection loaders.
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.
