The demand for increased operational efficiency and the presence of strict regulations for reducing carbon emissions is driving the adoption of fuel cell powered forklifts during the forecast period. The replacement frequency of hydrogen fuel cells is lower than that of lead batteries. Moreover, the fueling time of hydrogen powered forklifts is 80%-85% less than that for battery operated forklifts. Since, hydrogen is derived from natural gas, hydrogen fuel is much cheaper than diesel and LPG. These factors along with improved performance, environmental benefits, and low maintenance will drive the demand for fuel cell powered forklifts and act as a key trend driving market growth. Technavio's analysts have predicted that the forklift trucks market will register a CAGR of almost 6% by 2022.
The construction and renovation sector are witnessing rapid growth in developed markets such as the US and Western Europe. The implementation of Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) by the EC in 2012 is one of the major factors driving the public building renovation sector in Western Europe. Construction activity is also increasing in emerging economies of APAC such as India, China, and countries in South East Asia. Forklift trucks offer better flexibility and operational speed for repeated material handling tasks which makes it suitable for various construction activities. Thus, the growth of the construction sector will drive the growth of forklift trucks market during the forecast period.
Trained personnel with skilled technical expertise are required for the handling and operations of forklift trucks. In the US, a rule was implemented by OSHA from 2017, which makes training and certification compulsory for every forklift operator in a workplace. However, it is difficult to find skilled operators which leads to delay and loss in profitability of projects. Thus, the lack of skilled operators will hurt the growth prospects of the forklift trucks market during the forecast period.
