According to Global Market Insights, Inc., the bucket truck market is projected to grow in the next couple of years, both in the United States and internationally. There are many factors that are spurring demand for bucket trucks, aka boom trucks, global growth as well as government and corporate responsiveness to cleanup efforts after major storms.
A number of key sectors are benefiting — utilities, telecommunications, tree-trimmers, and construction to name a few. Insulated trucks are gaining importance because they offer safety from electrocution when working near electrical power lines. Units with extended booms can reach above 100 ft., making them ideal to manage, maintain, and enhance the overall electrical power distribution network.
Tree-care companies realized a long time ago how valuable bucket trucks are in traveling easily to the project site. Tree trimmers are adept at routine tree care, and they are using insulated lifts and insulated polyethylene bucket liners when trimming away branches and limbs from power lines.
Key players in the bucket truck industry/market include Altec, Terex, Versalift, as well as the older stalwarts Teco, Lift-All and Hi-Ranger. New bucket trucks are not cheap. For that reason, there is a thriving pre-owned market. With proper care and regular maintenance, bucket trucks can last many, many years.
