One of the major factors impacting market growth is the high cost of purchasing these trucks. Bucket trucks are manufactured using high-quality parts and pneumatic components, contributing to high initial investment costs. Construction industry players tend to use rental or used equipment due to the high cost of purchasing new trucks, challenging the market growth. However, the growing industry trend of continuous process improvement and economies of scale in production is expected to reduce the impact of this restraint over the coming years.

The bucket trucks industry will witness sluggish growth on account of the rapid spread of COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. The pandemic is inflicting high & rising losses to the global economy owing to disruption in the ecosystem of several industry sectors. Restrictions on international trade have led to a shortage of raw materials, hampering the production capability of bucket trucks. Furthermore, growing financial insecurities among manufacturers will impact the market size in 2020.

The market valuation for insulated bucket trucks was over USD 240 million in 2019 and is anticipated to expand at more than 3% CAGR during 2020-2026. The growing demand for these trucks in the utility sector is expected to boost the segment growth.

The boom lifts in these trucks are lined with insulated fiberglass coating. This coating acts as a bad conductor and does not allow the flow of electricity through the boom.

This provides enhanced safety to workers while installing electric power grids. These trucks are also witnessing an increasing representation in the maintenance & repair of power grids.

Telecommunication applications to augment the market revenue

The telecommunications segment held a market revenue share of over 15% in 2019. The rapidly increasing global population is creating an unprecedented demand for efficient telecommunication systems. This has led to a large-scale requirement of robust telecommunication infrastructure, fueling the bucket trucks market growth. Benefits offered by bucket trucks such as improved worker safety and operational efficiency at elevated heights, will support the adoption of these trucks in the telecommunication industry.

Several companies operating in the telecommunication sector are following the market trend of deploying bucket trucks for the installation of communication systems. For instance, in May 2019, Verizon Communications, Inc. purchased five hybrid trucks manufactured by Odyne Systems, LLC. These trucks with a bucket height of 29 feet will assist the company for new installations of communication systems and maintenance & repair of existing cable networks. This new fleet of hybrid trucks also assists the company in reducing carbon footprint through low vehicle emissions.
