Dump Truck Market Overview

Dump Truck are heavy machinery deployed for the transportation of bulk volumes of loose materials, including sand, soil, ores, rocks, waste material & debris from mining, civil, or large construction sites. They provide an invaluable service for transporting debris and minerals from one place to another. The ability to move large amounts of material and debris is one of the USPs of dump trucks.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global Dump Truck Market:

Global key companies in the dump truck market are facing a slowdown due to COVID-19 and are unable to initiate projects and execute product developments. Moreover, to minimize the slowdown in production processes, many companies depend on their respective governments to create special tax schemes and incentives that could help the companies minimize and mitigate the losses that occurred in this pandemic.

Dump Truck Market Dynamics


  • Growing government initiative for infrastructure development

  • Rising construction and mining activities

The construction sector primarily involves the construction of hospitals, residential buildings, industrial facilities, roads, and railways. The governments of the US, the UK, China, India, and other countries have announced their intention to invest in infrastructure projects. As construction activity increases, the need for transporting construction materials such as gravel, iron ore, and sand also increase. This growing requirement of transportation services across the world for every commercial and residential construction boosts the dump truck market. Furthermore, the growing mining activities across China, India, and Indonesia has formed a huge demand for dump truck. The mining activities involve the extraction process of minerals such as copper, stone, coal, lead, zinc, and others. There are multiple industries that depend on the supply of these minerals across the globe. The commonly required minerals are coal, copper, iron ore, and potash. China and India are the largest producers of coal and aluminum, whereas Australia and Brazil are majorly known for iron ore production. This growing requirement of different minerals for multiple production processes has resulted in expanding the mining activities. Henceforth, the growing construction and mining activities are expected to result in the high growth of the dump truck market during the forecast period.


  • High maintenance cost

The dump truck is mainly used in mining, construction, and other agricultural & forestry activities. The dump truck check up and servicing is essential for maintaining the condition and smooth functioning of the vehicle. Dump trucks require a high maintenance cost as these are checked on a regular basis, mainly the tire pressure and suspension system. These trucks are also not fuel-efficient. They mostly get between 5 and 7 gallons/mile. This makes the maintenance cost high for the dump trucks owing to the high fuel consumption. Furthermore, the batteries, tires, and hydraulics are the three key parts that require maintenance and can be responsible for generating high costs. The tires of the dump trucks are under serious strain. It is important for the owner or driver to check the air pressure and make sure if it is the same as per the given owner manual. The tire maintenance also involves the checking of alignment and tread to confirm if it is too damaged. The owner also needs to check the cracks or gouges in the sidewalls of the tires and understand the condition of the vehicle. The dumping mechanism works on its own batteries to ensure it runs smoothly. These parts are costly and involve regular maintenance, thereby hampering the growth of the market. However, advancements in technology and features are anticipated to lower the high maintenance cost, thereby generating a moderate rate during the review period.


  • Technology advancement in dump truck

Advanced technologies such as GPS on these vehicles result in efficient use of time and money and monitor driver behavior and track exact routes of the dump truck. Thus, the increasing adoption of dump trucks in construction and transportation is anticipated to impact the growth of the dump truck market. Nowadays, several technological advancements have taken place, which boost the dump truck market growth. The dump truck needs super-tough suspension systems. Some of the trucks have tires without air to battle rugged terrain without going flat.

Trail Crawl Control is another technology that uses some of the same electric gubbins as downhill descent control. It is far more complicated. While the downhill wizardry uses the brakes to keep things in check, this tech holds a preset speed by braking individual wheels and redistributing power when a slip is detected. Moreover, different cameras fitted in new trucks and dump trucks have focused rigs, which offer a front camera, permitting the driver to see what's ahead even when the machine's nose is pointed squarely at the International Space Station. Another technology is wade sensing. For instance, Land Rover designed sensors to live on the underside of the vehicle's side mirrors. Those sensors are essentially Park Distance Control sensors, slightly tweaked for off-road duty.

Dump Truck Market Supply Chain Analysis

In the design and development stage, the dimensions of the dump truck products are calculated and designed according to industry and government standards. While designing these vehicles, factors such as the capacity of the engines, height and weight, comfort, current demand, and recommended applications are considered. After finalizing the design, the raw materials and components are selected according to the design requirements. Dump trucks require various raw materials such as cast iron, aluminum, steel, rubber, plastic, and resin, which are the inputs for manufacturing personal protective equipment. Furthermore, they require various components such as engines and transmission assembly, rods, lighting assembly, tires, brake assemblies, steering assemblies, vehicle frames, and fuel tanks. Variation in the supply of these components could negatively impact the manufacturing process.

After the necessary components are procured in the manufacturing stage, the dump truck manufacturers manufacture the equipment according to the finalized design and the requirements of the end users. After the manufacturing process is completed, the finished product undergoes certain quality checks to ensure that they comply with the required performance standards, efficiency, and precision in critical work conditions before being sent to the end users.

The distribution of dump truck products is mainly carried out through authorized and local distributors, dealers, and exporters worldwide. The leading dump truck product manufacturers also enter strategic alliances with the local dealers and components manufacturers to compensate for rules and regulations pertaining to operations in different countries, such as China, Japan, Germany, the US, and the UK.
