According to the Graphical Research new growth forecast report titled Europe Fire Truck Market Estimated To Be Around USD 2 Billion by 2026. The increasing demand for low-emission fire trucks in Europe is expected to drive the market. Several market players are introducing new models of electric fire trucks in the region to meet stringent emission standards. The increasing awareness of harmful emissions from heavy-duty vehicles, such as fire trucks, is encouraging local fire departments to adopt electric trucks, generating lucrative growth opportunities for the market.
The fire truck market witnessed sluggish growth in 2020 owing to the escalating spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. The manufacturing industry has been unfavorably affected due to the shortage of labor and raw materials. Firetruck manufacturers are facing numerous supply chain challenges. However, with the ease in restrictions on international trade and revival of the manufacturing industry, the demand for fire trucks will propel in Europe.
The growing developments in countries including the UK, Germany, and Russia have encouraged the European governments to introduce additional fire safety measures in the region. For instance, Fire Safe Europe (FSEU) had compared the differences in fire safety requirements and building regulations across Europe to impose new laws related to fire safety and mitigate the loss of property and life. Several measures taken by the government to reduce casualties in fire accidents will enhance the market share of fire trucks in the region.
The aerial fire truck market is expected to witness steady growth during the forecast period. Aerial trucks are equipped with extendable booms that allow firemen to reach high locations during rescue operations. The growing adoption of these fire trucks in urban areas to evacuate survivors from high-rise building is further proliferating industry demand.
Key players operating in the industry are Albert Ziegler GmbH, Gimaex GmbH, BAI Brescia Antincendi International SRL, and Magirus GmbH. These companies are focusing on introducing new models of electric fire trucks to cater to the rising demand from the local fire departments in the region. For instance, in September 2020, Rosenbauer launched a new Electric Fire RT Truck in Austria in partnership with Volvo Penta. This assisted the company to expand its product line in the market.
