Vacuum Truck Body Manufacturing In North America Markets, Competitors, Channels, Analysis and Outlook: 2014-2019. Comprehensive evaluation on the manufacture of bodies for vacuum truck applications in North America, with detailed analysis of product types, production volumes and value, prices, distribution channels, end-users, materials used, company market shares, competitive environment and forward demand outlook underlying projected market growth.

A vacuum truck features a heavy-duty industrial vacuum unit and is designed to vacuum liquid or particles from a site and then transport the load to an appropriate place for disposal or re-use.

These trucks are used by towns and municipalities for sewer cleaning, factories for industrial waste, environmental services companies for hazardous waste removal and crash cleanups, contractors for septic tank cleaning, oil and gas companies for drilling and fracking water, mining companies for waste handling and portable restroom service operators, among other others.

Demand for and production of vacuum trucks continues to grow but is affected by secular trends. For example, the 2008-2009 recession hit municipal tax revenues, which in turn, halted their purchases of sewer cleaning trucks. That situation reversed in 2010 and demand for these trucks has been growing steadily ever since. Currently, the North American oil and gas industry is in a slump but that also is expected to reverse, and along with it purchases of vacuum trucks.

In other words, demand for vacuum trucks continues to grow. It is estimated that the production value of these trucks has more than doubled in the last five years. The forecast for the next five years is even more bullish.

The industry producing vacuum trucks is very fragmented. The leading player, Federal Signal, which owns Guzzler Manufacturing, Inc. and Vactor Manufacturing, Inc., has less than a 20% market share. More than 50 other companies producing these products split the remaining 80% of production.

A variety of demand, technology, regulatory and competitive issues now are affecting the vacuum truck industry. These include the impact of urbanization, EPA/DOT and state regulations and industry consolidation. The products offered and suppliers remaining in five years are forecast to be very different than today.

These and other issues are analyzed in this report, to provide a perspective on the industry structure and dynamics of this highly specialized industry.
