Will Market Growth Be Led by Insulation Type Bucket Trucks?

An industrial vehicle that carefully maneuvers around complicated electrical cabling is called an insulated bucket truck. The insulated bucket truck has better technology and a greater level of protection since it is more useful than a regular aerial platform truck.

Beside from performing the basic duties of a conventional aerial platform vehicle (with the exception of extra-large tonnage lifting), an insulated bucket truck can also work while the power is still on, for example, while changing transformers, wires, or cable clips without turning off the power.

Insulated bucket trucks with dielectric fiberglass coating prevent electricity from flowing through the boom, which can damage the equipment or potentially electrocuting the operator. Increased demand for bucket trucks from the utility sector will facilitate growth opportunities for insulated bucket trucks. The insulated bucket trucks market is expected to progress at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period. However, with consistent demand, the market for insulated bucket trucks is expected to be valued at US$ 617 million by 2032-end.

Is Non-Insulated Bucket Truck Up Surging in Sales?

The bucket truck market is segmented into insulated and non-insulated models based on type. The low price of non-insulated bucket trucks is causing them to become more popular. The market share of non-insulated bucket truck was around 71.7% in 2021. These vehicles are primarily made for utility personnel and anyone who work close to electrical cabling. Non-insulated bucket trucks are built using fiberglass and other dielectric materials to stop electricity from conducting. Due to non-insulated bucket truck is up surging, the non- insulated bucket truck is likely to reach the valuation of US$ 1,247.5 million.
