Compactors, used for rolling and compression of soil, gravel, asphalt or crushed aggregates, range from small walk-behind rollers, portable rammer compactors and plate compactors, to self-propelled single, tandem, pneumatic and combination rollers, and include static, vibratory and tamping rollers. Broadly, compaction equipment in this report are categorized into two types: Highway Compaction equipment and Commercial/Utility Compaction equipment, determined by the operating weight of the equipment. Light compaction equipment, including walk-behind and pull-type rollers, rammers and plate compactors, are not part of this report.


Highway compactors have an operating weight greater than 10,000 lbs. and include soil compactors and asphalt compactors.


Soil compactors are usually configured as single drum steel rollers with a steel drum at the front and two wheels at the rear. Tamping/sheepsfoot rollers, featuring round or rectangular shaped protrusions on the front steel drum and wheels at the rear, are also used in soil compaction.


Asphalt compactors/rollers include tandem, with front and back drums, the most commonly used configuration for asphalt paving; pneumatic, or rubber-tired rollers, typically used at intermediate and final phases of asphalt compaction; and combination rollers, which feature a vibrating drum at the front and pneumatic tires at the rear. The vibratory drum ensures quicker compaction and the tires ensure a denser and smoother surface.


Utility/commercial rollers are self-propelled compactors with operating weights less than 10,000 lbs. These are used mainly for commercial paving purposes and usually feature tandem vibratory steel drums, although some companies manufacture a few single drum compactors. Utility rollers have a narrower compaction width and lower operating weight as compared to standard asphalt rollers.


Key aspects detailed in this report include estimation of market size, market shares by type, demand factors, trends and outlook for each segment, as well as profiles of the 17 manufacturers supplying road compaction equipment into the U.S. and Canadian markets.


This report is part of a six-part series on road construction equipment that seeks to address the needs of clients from a variety of segments, ranging from construction equipment manufacturers and large highway construction contractors to small road maintenance contractors—who are likely to be well-versed on the subject—to private equity firms and management analysts that need to understand the market from an outsider standpoint with no prior knowledge.
