The market is restricted by the steep operating and maintenance costs associated with these trucks. Fire trucks are subjected to high temperatures and heat during their operations leading to frequent wear & tear of critical parts. Recurring cost of servicing and replacement of these parts will add to the operating costs. Additional factors such as high cost of fuel and insurance also impact market growth. Limited funds allocated to fire departments in developing economies restrict them from purchasing new trucks, further hampering demand.
Analyst view: “The fire trucks market is anticipated to witness high growth supported by the introduction of stringent regulations on fire safety across the globe.”
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the global economy. Several countries are facing a steep decline in economic indicators such as GDP and employment rate. Governments are focusing on containing the spread of the virus and allocating funds to treat the most affected areas. The shift in government focus has led to a shortage in the supply of funds to government-owned fire departments, hampering the fire trucks market. The industry is expected to witness an upward trend with a reduction in the large-scale impact of the pandemic.
