Vacuum trucks are equipped with heavy-duty industrial vacuum units and are designed to vacuum liquid or particles from a site and transport the load for disposal or re-use. There are two general categories of vacuum trucks—coded, which can carry hazardous materials and must meet certain standards for certification by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and non-coded, which are designed to carry non-hazardous materials and are not required to pass the stringent ASME requirements. This report addresses only non-coded body types; information on coded vacuum trucks can be found in a different SRN report: Vacuum Tank Truck/Body Manufacturing in North America: Hydro Excavators, Industrial Vacuum Loaders, Combination Sewer Cleaners & Coded Vacuum Tank Truck/Bodies 2021
This report covers two key types of non-coded vacuum truck/bodies: vacuum tank truck/bodies, including septic tank truck/bodies, and portable toilet service truck/bodies. These types of vacuum truck/bodies have lower entry barriers as compared to coded variants, on account of the less restrictive technical requirements.
The project is a “bottoms up” approach based on examining virtually all participants manufacturing these types of vacuum tank truck/bodies in North America, aggregating their sales and unit production into an industry-wide picture. In addition to leading manufacturers, the report identifies niche and fringe players, who are often targets for acquisition. Consolidation can be expected as leaders vie for market shares in application‑specific markets.
Non-coded vacuum tank truck units and non-coded portable restroom service units are simple products in terms of design, technology and manufacturing process. Manufacture of these units is regionalized, and the segment has numerous small manufacturers serving local markets. These players cater to the local end-use customers either directly or through dealers. The ten leading fabricators manufactured approximately 64% of the total units of these types of vacuum truck/bodies. The leading player accounted for only about 15% of unit production in this highly fragmented market.
These and other issues are addressed in this report, to provide a perspective on the industry structure and dynamics of this specialized industry. The report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
Separate SpecialtyResearch.net reports are available that cover other types of tank truck/bodies. Vacuum Tank Truck/Body Manufacturing in North America: Hydro Excavators, Industrial Vacuum Loaders, Combination Sewer Cleaners & Coded Vacuum Tank Truck/Bodies 2021 covers coded vacuum tank truck/bodies, and Tank Truck/Body Manufacturing in North America 2021 includes information on bulk feed bodies and liquid tank truck/bodies: aviation refuelers, LPG bobtails, refined fuel/petroleum tank truck/bodies, water tank truck/bodies and sewer jetters.
