Over the three years to 2017, vacuum excavator prices are forecast to slightly increase due to rising input costs

Vacuum excavators have a buyer power score of 3.3 out of 5, which indicates moderate purchasing conditions for buyers. Vacuum excavators have different features and attachments used in sewage applications, construction, industrial manufacturing and clean up. This trend allows vendors to reach multiple downstream markets with multiline products. “Buyers benefit from this trend because it allows them to easily compare and customize vacuum excavators,” according to IBISWorld business research analyst, Cameron Roark.

Due to the high average price of vacuum excavators, it is difficult for buyers to switch vendors with ease. Once a vacuum excavator is purchased, vendors will typically provide training, customer service and repair services, but they will not offer to buy the vehicle back for the full price. Increasing demand and growing input costs hurt buyer power because they place upward pressure on prices.

However, not all factors in the market undermine buyer power. “The number of available substitutes encourages vendors to compete across markets, offsetting rising prices and encouraging vendors to provide quality products to attract new buyers,” says Roark. Additionally, high competition and a significant level of imports give buyers thousands of suppliers to choose from, providing flexibility in the selection process. Lastly, despite high price driver volatility, volatility in prices for vacuum excavators has been low. This factor has benefited buyers by making inventory planning and budget forecasting easier. Major vendors include PACCAR Inc., Vactor Manufacturing Inc. and Freightliner. For more information, visit IBISWorld’s Vacuum Excavators procurement category market research report page.
