Decreased Demand for New Vehicles Sales Declined Revenues Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
In the initial month of 2020, the North America market was severely affected due to COVID-19. The revenues of commercial vehicle sales, component suppliers, and overall supply chain have been disturbed completely due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The North American trucking industry has fallen in volume unit sales/production and individual revenues. For instance, the dumpster rental industry in 2020 has seen a decline of 7.1% in its overall business due to lower consumer spending. Moreover, the major company’s net income decreased by around 10% due to COVID-19.
Furthermore, Federal Signal had USD 992.9 million in revenue in 2019 and later reached USD 915.8 million in 2020. Similarly, many other companies that contribute majorly to North America’s sewer cleaning business have seen a decline in their business due to the pandemic. However, steady economic growth and growing value chain interactions are anticipated to contribute to the North America vacuum truck market growth in 2021. Similarly, companies' active involvement in waste management, cleaning demand fulfillment, and strategies to grow their business are all likely to create the product demand.
