Fire Truck Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Fire Truck Market according to our research experts:

Rising Demand for Fire Trucks in the Residential and Commercial Sector to Drive the Market

The residential and commercial segment includes fire trucks used by municipal bodies and forest fire fighting applications.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, there have been more than 400,000 house fire cases reported in the United States every year. These fire incidents bring dreadful culture to the people. The scenarios remain the same not just in the United States but across the world.

In 2021, a fire department responded to a fire on average every 23 seconds in the United States, according to the National Fire Protection Association. A home fire was reported every 89 seconds, a home fire death occurred every three hours and 24 minutes, and a home fire injury occurred every 46 minutes.

Moreover, several wildfire fire incidents are being reported across the world where fire incidents have destroyed the lives and property of people. For instance:

According to The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) 58733 wildfires occurred in the United States and 121.6 acres burned per fire in 2021. Thus the rising incidences of wildfires has prompted the government in United States to procure firefighting equipment including fire trucks to bolster their fire fighting preparedness.

Furthermore, the governments are closely examining the reasons behind urban fire incidences to avoid disasters like the Mundka fire accident in New Delhi, India which left 27 people dead and Grenfell Tower fire incident in London, United Kingdom in which 72 people died. This incidences mainly happened due to noncompliance action pulled by hundreds of commercial and institutional buildings, including hospitals, factories, and even schools, which are operating without a fire and safety certificates. These things further make thousands of people vulnerable and help raise the intensity of fire incidents.

An increasing number of high-rise buildings are also leading local municipalities to upgrade their existing fleet of fire fighting equipment, including trucks. For instance

  • October, 2022: E-ONE a subsidiary of REV Group Inc., delivered two E-ONE HP 95 Mid-Mount Platforms to the Phoenix Fire Department in Arizona as a part of an eight-unit order that includes a total of five platforms and three E-ONE HR 100 single axle ladder trucks.
  • April, 2021: the Kerala Fire and Rescue Services Department included the purchase of a Turn Table Ladder (TTL) in their new modernization process. The department announced to procure TTL with a height of 65 m that can be used for rescue and firefighting missions on high-rise buildings.

Therefore, the aforementioned factors and instances are anticipated to contribute for growth of fire truck market in countries like United States India, United Kingdom.etc. over the forecasted period.

Fire Truck Market, By Volume, Taiwan, 2018-2021

Asia-Pacific Region is Expected to Witness Significant Growth

During the forecast period, the fire truck market is expected to be dominated by Asia-Pacific, followed by North America and Europe. The presence of key low-cost manufacturers in China, coupled with the rising demand for residential and commercial applications in emerging economies such as China, South Korea, and India, is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

China is the largest Asian market for fire trucks. The country has introduced trade barriers in the wake of economic conflict with the United States, which tends to increase the overall cost and vehicle imports and has been subjected to approval by the ministry of finance. Rigorous business constraints and growing economic and political conflicts have resulted in the restraint of the development of international manufacturers while insulating the revenue bars of China-based companies.

However, India has witnessed a key increase in the demand for fire trucks over the past years, owing to the high urbanization the country is undergoing. Industries from segments like oil refineries, steel plants, industrial corporations, and thermal power generation plants have been demanding industrial-grade fire trucks with special emphasis on foam trucks.

The demand is primarily noticeable from tier 1 and tier 2 cities of the country, which has been scrutinized by the fire truck manufacturers and further collaborated and partnered to capitalize on this pain point; moreover, with increasing urbanization, growing security awareness, and new product launches, further demand is expected to drive the market. For instance

  • November, 2021: Bengaluru International Airport Ltd. (BIAL) ordered four advanced fire trucks and one firefighting stimulator from Austrian firefighting equipment manufacturer Rosenbauer Group. BIAL is the first airport in South Asia to order such equipment.

Japan registered a decreasing trend in the number of fire-related fatalities. The number of fire-related fatalities in 2020 accounted for 1,486 and was reduced to around 1000 fire-related fatalities as of 2021. This decreasing trend is mostly attributed to the advanced technological developments of fire trucks and decreased response time to a fire alert.

North America's growth is primarily driven by the growing requirement for advanced safety infrastructure in residential buildings and commercial complexes, which is expected to augment the market demand.

The fire truck market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa is characterized primarily by the consumption of applications, such as enterprises, industries, airports, and the military, providing new opportunities for key players to expand in the market.
