Road Construction Equipment in North America: Road Maintenance Equipment. Market Size, Shares, Segmentation, Competitors, Growth, Channels, & Trends Underlying the Manufacture and Markets for Road Maintenance Equipment
This report provides a quantification and analysis of the business of fabricating equipment used for maintaining existing road pavements for the North American market. For the purpose of this report, road maintenance involves pothole patching, widening of existing roads, microsurfacing and crack sealing.
Pothole patchers are machines capable of making asphalt repairs on existing roads. Details on the two types of pothole patchers—hot-mix and spray injection patchers—are presented separately.
Road wideners are self-propelled, wheel-mounted machines used for placing either aggregate or asphalt in shoulder paving and pavement widening projects.
Microsurfacing and slurry sealing are two similar methods of pavement maintenance, which involve laying a mixture of asphalt emulsion, graded aggregates, mineral filler, water, and other additives on an existing pavement.
Sealing cracks in asphalt pavement is undertaken with material such as liquid asphalt and asphalt emulsions. The report discusses the various types of equipment used for cleaning cracks prior to filling, as well as crack-sealing equipment, such as oil-jacketed melters, direct fire melters and cold-applied crack filling equipment.
Asphalt recyclers/reclaimers and infrared heaters include small equipment used for cost-effective patching of small areas of cracked, aged and deteriorated roads. Recyclers help in reusing milled waste, while reclaimers heat new asphalt to a usable temperature before it is placed. Infrared heaters soften the area which needs to be repaired.
Key aspects detailed in this report include estimation of market size, market shares by type, demand factors, trends and outlook for each segment, as well as profiles of the 40 manufacturers supplying road maintenance equipment into the U.S. and Canadian markets.
This report is part of a multi-client project on road construction equipment that seeks to address the needs of clients from a variety of segments, ranging from construction equipment manufacturers and large highway construction contractors to small road maintenance contractors—who are likely to be well-versed on the subject—to private equity firms and management analysts that need to understand the market from an outsider standpoint with no prior knowledge.
