Trenchers, also known as ditchers, are utilized in the construction industry to dig trenches, break rocks, and penetrate the soil. Trenches are utilized to lay electric wires & pipes and to construct drainages.

Moreover, trenchers are also utilized in the agriculture industry to construct water carrying pipelines for irrigation purposes. Trenchers performs the same task as that of excavators, the only difference being that trenchers dig out earth continuously. They have a series of buckets mounted over a big circular wheel at the front end, which rotates continuously.

Market Scope and Structure Analysis

Significant expansion of the global construction industry, especially in rapidly developing countries, is primarily fuelling the demand for trenchers. Trenchers are capable of digging at a faster pace as compared to that of excavators and hence, trenchers are being widely preferred by construction companies. Rise in population, government emphasis on improvement of infrastructure, and increase in Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) have boosted the construction activities, which in turn fuels the demand for trenchers to cater to the demand. Moreover, expansion of the agriculture sector across North America, Africa, and Asia-Pacific, is likely to propel the growth of the global trenchers market. High efficiency, uniform trench width, and ability to handle surfaces with rocks and tightly cemented soils are major advantages of trenchers, which in turn is driving the growth of the global trenchers market.

Trenchers are capable of digging a trench of a lesser depth as compared to that dug by excavators. This is a key factor restraining the growth of the global trenchers market.
