The global skid steer loader market grew at a CAGR of around 4% during 2014-2019. Skid steer loader refers to a compact, engine-driven loader with a small rigid frame and a lift arm attached with several additional tools. These tools commonly include hydraulic hammers, forks, buckets, stump grinder, auger, trencher, landscape rake, etc. The specialized wheel system of the loader provides greater on-place mobility and makes it suitable for all-terrain applications. Skid steer loaders offer several benefits over conventional backhoe loaders, such as improved fuel efficiency, compact size, high-load capacity and reduced carbon footprints. As a result, these loaders are widely adopted across numerous industries, such as construction, mining, agricultural, logistics, landscaping, etc.
The expanding construction and mining industries are primarily augmenting the demand for skid steer loaders to perform several labor-intensive tasks, such as digging, collecting, and lifting several materials, such as debris, sand, cement, etc. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of skid steer loaders in site cleanup, material spreading, road sweeping, backfill, turf and slab preparation, etc., is also propelling the market growth. Moreover, the rising levels of urbanization coupled with the increasing investments in the development of smart cities and advanced infrastructure projects are further augmenting the demand for automated construction machinery, such as skid steer loaders. Apart from this, skid steer loaders are integrated with various agriculture-based equipment, such as manure scraper, bale handler, rotary cultivator, seeder, mower, livestock feed pusher, etc., thereby experiencing high demand in the agriculture sector. Moreover, the emergence of e-commerce platforms has propelled the adoption of skid steer loaders for numerous logistics and warehousing applications based on their compact size and heavy-weight lifting capacity. Besides this, several technological upgradations have led to the emergence of highly-advanced loaders equipped with hydraulic brakes, grapples, sweepers or angle brooms, pallet fork attachments, etc., thereby bolstering the market growth. Additionally, the rising environmental concerns have propelled the development of battery-operated skid steer loaders for reducing the carbon emissions from diesel-based loaders. In the coming years, the growing penetration of autonomous and self-driven loaders with GPS-operated control systems and wireless connectivity is expected to drive the market growth.
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, in early 2020, has significantly hampered the demand for skid steer loaders. The implementation of stringent lockdown regulations across the globe has led to temporary halts in numerous construction activities along with unexpected cancellation of various contracts pertaining to the deployment of construction machinery. The global skid steer loader market, however, is expected to revive from 2021 onwards and exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2025.
