Construction Dumpers Meet Emission Standards

Last August, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released new guidelines for emission standards for heavy-duty vehicles, such as construction dumpers, to reduce carbon pollution and increase fuel efficiency. This will lead to the demand for fuel-efficient products in the global construction dumper market, as manufacturing innovations will get a boost.

This isn’t the first emission guideline set to change how construction does business. The Paris Climate Change Agreement signed by 196 countries in December 2015 to control emissions of greenhouse gas emissions is another example.

Technavio’s latest report analyzes the global construction dumper market—and how it is going to change in the future.

According to the report, construction dumpers account for one-third of the construction accidents that result in serious injuries and death. To avoid such mishaps and enhance the safety features in construction dumpers, vendors have developed a driver safety systems (DSS), which records the second-by-second fatigue and distraction data through a camera. DSS allows the behavior of the driver to be monitored by reading the operator's face and eyes and alerts the driver in case of fatigue.

With these innovations and changes to the market, contractors have an opportunity to leverage unique features on equipment on the jobsite, which will result in improved efficiencies and a better bottom line.
