    • The company said the machine is suitable for performing applications typically associated with standard machines, but can also be used in indoor demolition work and in locations with noise restrictions, such as schools and hospitals.

To overcome the high operating costs of skid loaders, companies across the globe, are developing new products and technologies to ensure optimum performance and comfort with enhanced stability of the loader and improved lifting capacity, and higher productivity.

Market Drivers and Trends of the Global Skid Loaders Market

Looking at the skid-steer loader market, Bobcat, one of the pioneers in the development of the machine in the late 1950s and early ‘60s, still reigns as the top player across the global market with a commanding share of the market, nearly 40%, over its competitors. It is followed by a group that includes big hitters like Kubota, Caterpillar, John Deere, CNH, and Manitou.

The top six suppliers accounted for just over 80% of total industry sales last year. Some well-known OEMs, specifically Volvo and Takeuchi, have exited the business in recent years. Takeuchi now solely focuses its attention on its compact track loaders.
