Walk behind Road roller are heavy engineering vehicles used to compact soil, gravel, concrete, or asphalt in the construction of roads and foundations. Walk behind roller consists of a drum compactor that compacts the surface beneath till it gets smooth. They are available in wide variety of dimension and weight depending upon the nature of usage.
Increasing growth in the construction industry is a major factor driving the overall walk behind roller market. They are used in road construction to flatten the road surface and asphalt. Another major factor responsible for rising demand of walk behind roller market is increasing number of construction of railways over last few decades. They are used to flatten the land before laying of tracks. These rollers are also used for landfills and agricultural purposes. Rolling process ensures that foundations are compacted thoroughly and the materials gets compact properly. The walk behind road roller market is also influenced by growing industrial growth and increasing number of infrastructure activities which has given rise to the construction such as residential & non-residential buildings, roads & highways, bridges, airports, and others. Increasing investment of government for infrastructure development is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for walk behind roller market over the forecast period.
Walk behind road rollers requires a heavy amount of lubrication and maintenance cost for safe and efficient usage. There is need of trained professional for the use of walk behind roller market in order to avoid accidents. High maintenance cost and lack of skilled labor is expected to hamper the growth of walk behind roller market during the forecast period. Rental and lease market for walk behind roller market act as major restraint for the growth of global walk behind roller market. Increasing government rules and regulation regarding carbon emission and fluctuating prices of diesel also hampering the growth of market as these heavy vehicles operate with the help of diesel. Walk Behind rollers can be double drum model, which are self-propelled and can work in reverse travel direction. These roller are controlled by cable or road linkages. They are used for soil, granular and asphalt compaction and for small area repair and pothole work.
The global walk behind roller market can be segmented in terms of product type, application, and geography. Based on product type, the walk behind roller market can be categorized into Single-Drum Rollers, and Double Drum Rollers.
