The Aerial Work Platform Manufacturing industry has had a disappointing performance over the past five years. Industry demand is primarily driven by construction activity because aerial work platforms are used by nearly all construction industries. Profitability was also volatile over the past five years. Steel prices spiked in 2011, raising input costs and squeezing margins. Over the five years to 2021, industry revenue is forecast to grow. The value of both construction and aggregate private investment are anticipated to continue to significantly increase over the next five years, which will result in stronger demand for the industry's products.
This industry manufactures aerial work platforms, including boom lifts, scissor lifts, vertical mast lifts and personal portable lifts. Aerial work platforms may be stationary, towed or mounted on trucks.
