Increasing R&D investments by manufacturers to commercialize electric versions of these trucks are providing market opportunities. Several market players are conducting prototype tests of electric fire trucks for their potential commercialization.

One of the major industry challenges impacting the fire truck market revenue is the high cost of these trucks. Fire trucks are manufactured with high-quality components and raw materials to offer high durability in harsh operating conditions. These trucks are also equipped with more tools such as ladders, hoses, self-contained breathing apparatus, hydraulic rescue equipment first aid kits, and ventilating equipment. These tools further add to the increasing cost of purchasing these trucks. The market demand is also restricted by a limited number of private sector companies operating in the fire rescue industry.

Moreover, the shortage of raw materials due to restrictions on international trades is adversely impacting the production capabilities of industry players. The market is expected to witness steady demand with a reduction in the global impact of the virus.
