Report ID: 155210 3300 Machinery & Equipment 377 244 Pages 4.5 (33)

Market Overview:

The global skidders market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for forestry and other applications across the globe. In terms of type, the swing boom skidders segment is expected to witness highest growth during the forecast period, followed by single arch and double arch skidders segments. Swing boom skidders are equipped with an arm that swings out over the tractor’s rear axle, allowing it to reach farther trees for harvesting purposes as compared to other types of skidders.

Global Skidders Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A skidder is a piece of logging equipment that is used to pull logs out of the forest.

Single Arch Skidders:

Single arch skidder is a type of skidding machine used for removing snow and ice from the roads. It is also known as single-arched scraper or single-arched plow in some countries. The machine consists of one or more arches mounted over a flexible arm, which can be lowered to clear an obstacle from the road surface.

The product has several advantages such as it helps clear snow.

Double Arch Skidders:

Double arch skidder is a type of skidding machine used for applying both forward and reverse Arch Skid (AS) techniques. It can be used to perform AS on any size of vehicles, including large trucks. The machine consists of two independently mounted arches with tires that provide independent suspension movement, which enables the operator to control the vehicle’s speed as well as position while performing an arch.

Application Insights:

The others application segment dominated the global skidders market, accounting for over 45.0% share of the overall revenue in 2017. The forestry application segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increased demand for wood products from various end-use industries including construction and housing. Moreover, rising demand for high quality timber in manufacturing furniture and other wooden products will boost industry growth further.

The equipment used in forestry operations includes felling machines and draglines that are used to drop trees at desired locations after cutting them down at the forest edge orforestation site respectively. Other applications include agriculture (threshing machine), land clearing (logging trucks), mining (roadheaders & loaders) among others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has a large number of forestry operators, especially in China and Japan. Furthermore, emerging economies such as India and Indonesia are also witnessing rapid growth in their forestry sectors which will have a positive impact on the overall market growth over the next eight years.

The demand for skidders is expected to be high across North America owing to an increase in infrastructure activities including residential buildings, commercial buildings, bridges construction etc., leading up till 2030. Europe accounted for more than 25% of total market share owing to increasing infrastructure activities coupled with growing demand from countries like Russia that are experiencing colder climatic conditions due to climate change will drive industry growth over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for skidders in the forestry and construction industries
  • Growing popularity of skidders among small-scale farmers and hobbyists
  • Technological advancements that make skidders more efficient and easier to operate
  • Rising prices of lumber and other construction materials
  • Government incentives for purchasing energy-efficient equipment
