DUBLIN, Nov 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Vocational Truck/Body Industry in North America: Pothole Patchers. Size, Trends, Growth, Outlook & Competitive Structure Underlying the Manufacture and Market for Truck-Mounted Pothole Patchers in North America" report to their offering.
This report presents data and information on the market size and competitive positions in the manufacture of truck-mounted hot-mix and spray injection pothole patchers in North America. The need for road repair is high, owing to deteriorating conditions of roads across the country. Towns and municipalities without adequate budgets to repave roads are expected to extend lives of existing roads through repairs and patching. Therefore demand for pothole patching equipment is largely linked to available road repair funds from municipalities. However, owing to fund constraints and subsequent lack of growth in road repair budgets, demand for pothole patching equipment has been muted. A large portion of pothole patching equipment is trailer-based; most manufacturers primarily offer trailer-based patching equipment, and also offer a couple of truck-mounted or slip-in models. Only about one-fifth to one-third of all pothole patchers are truck-mounted. We have identified 15 manufacturers of pothole patcher bodies in North America. The report presents estimates of 2015 production/sales in units and at market values, as well as an overview of the broad competitive picture including standings of key manufacturers and the demand outlook for the industry through 2020.
