The steadily growing trenchers market is marked by their application in multiple industries, evolving product designs, and rental activities. Trenchers are highly sought after in the seabed trenching for applications including shallow inter-array cable burials and deep water pipeline burial projects. According to the type of seabed, different trenchers are available such as a jet trencher, heavy soil trencher, and many others. Amidst the race of attaining global connectivity, activities such as the installation of submarine pipelines in the deep sea water have increased where trenchers are highly used in harsh seas and challenging seabed conditions.
Trencor, a Charles Machine Works company, has introduced its very first large-scale upgrade to its well-received 1400-series trencher line - T14-54/617 trencher. Famous for its use in pipeline burial and surface mining operations the upgraded version is available with a Tier 4 Final emissions compliant engine, state-of-the-art electronics and customized features.
Like any other construction equipment, rental services and leasing are common activities in the trenchers market. Apart from launching the new as well as upgraded trenchers, manufacturers in the trenchers market provide the users with an option of rental services. These services are demand-specific to accommodate different consumer requirements including a temporary use, as a backup to one’s functional equipment, and as a trial for different types of trenchers.
Trenchers Market: Introduction
Trenchers are construction equipment used to dig depressions in the ground, generally deeper than their width. At present, there are two types of trenchers. One is a wheel trencher and the other one is a ladder or chain trencher. Wheel trenchers consist of a large wheel with a lot of buckets attached to the circumference of the wheel. In the case of a ladder or chain trencher, the wheel is replaced by a chain wrapped with cutter blades or buckets and is spun using continuous track assembly. In both the cases, the rotating elements rotate at high speeds to take the mud off the ground; thus, digging the trenches on the ground. The dirt or mud thus removed is sent on to a conveyor attached to the wheel and the operation continues until the machine moves forward to dig in deeper trenches.
Trenchers are available in various forms and size and can be chosen as per the requirements of the trenching operation. The most common segmentation of the trenchers market is on the basis of trenching mechanism, which is either a wheel or a chain. The second one is the mode of movement, which is either a wheel and tire based or crawler based. Trenching is a common earthmoving operation employed by every construction and mining unit. Trenchers find applications in military for the digging of trenches for fencing and other purposes. The need for trenchers is rising in construction and mining applications globally. Although these equipment are being updated with better technologies, there is a need to improvise the systems to empower the operational efficiencies of the machines.
Trenchers Market: Dynamics
The numerous aspects attributing to the evolution of the trenchers market are the adaptability of the equipment in various applications such as agriculture, drainage & plumbing, construction & mining and military. The machine is popular due to its ability to make the process swifter and effortless. The growing necessity to cope with budget constraints necessitates picking the correct trencher, which minimizes the initial, transportation and operational costs.
Trenchers have advanced to meet various requisites suggested by the end users and feature innovative choices that add diversity while yielding better efficiency and reducing the workload on the machine operator. Rising ecological anxieties have turned out to be a trend in the trenchers market and existing market giants are focusing on building machines that are ecofriendly. Although the market looks great for the trenchers market, there are a few constraints associated with it. The main factor that might hinder the market growth is the downfall of the mining industry, where these machines are employed the most.

Trenchers Market: Regional Outlook
Regionally, the trenchers market has been characterized into seven key regions, including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East & Africa and Latin America. North America is anticipated to dominate the trenchers market, owing to the region’s leniency towards adoption of new and better technologies. The region is expected to have a consolidated market with fewer key players holding the maximum share of the market. The same trend is being observed in Europe as well. With the concentration of world leaders in construction and mining equipment manufacturing in Europe, the competition level has increased a few folds, resulting in better and advanced technologies. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, on the other hand, is in a growing phase and is regarded to account for most of the trenchers sales volume. Latin America and Middle East and Africa are foreseen to be better markets for trenchers in the years to come.
