Wood Chipper Machines Market: Introduction
A tree chipper or wood chipper is a machine used for shrinking wood (generally tree limbs or trunks) into smaller woodchips. They are often portable, being mounted on wheels on frames appropriate for towing behind a truck or van. Power is mostly provided by an internal combustion engine from 3 horsepower (2.2 kW) to 1,000 horsepower (750 kW). Tree chippers are typically made of a hopper with a collar, the chipper mechanism itself, and an optional collection bin for the chips. A tree limb is inserted into the hopper and started into the chipping mechanism. The chips exit through a chute and can be directed into a truck-mounted container or onto the ground. Typical output is chips on the order of 1 inch (3 cm) to 2 inches (5 cm) in size. The final wood chips have uses such as being spread as a ground cover or being fed into a digester during papermaking.
Key Drivers of the Wood Chipper Machines Market
- Increasing demand for woodchips that are used as a biomass solid fuel is likely to propel the demand for various types of chippers, including drum, disc, and screw wood chippers, across the globe. Furthermore, the growing utilization of woodchips as raw material for producing wood pulp is expected to impact the wood chipper market.
- Advancement in the global forestry industry is expected to propel the demand for a wide array of wood chippers over the forecast period. The extensive demand for wood chipping machines across multiple industries, including paper & pulp, forestry, and furniture, for chipping wood that is used as a raw material is anticipated to drive the market.
Growing urbanization and development of construction sites creating opportunities in the wood chipper machines market
With changing lifestyles and surge in urbanization, forest lands have been demolished to a large extent, creating huge opportunities for the wood chipper machines market. Development of new construction sites at the outskirts of towns and cities entail swift chipping and cutting of trees and vegetation. Furthermore, botanical gardens and amusements parks have also become key consumers of wood chipper machines on account of the need to shape and beautify trees in the premises. Such factors boosts the growth of the wood chipper machines market.
Stage V legislation imposed by EU Parliament a restraint for the wood chipper machines market
In 2019, an EU engine emission regulation, known as stage V, was imposed. This legislation was implied to diesel engines used in non-road mobile machinery such as a wood chipper. The legislation stated that manufacture of pre-stage V diesel engines ceased at the end of December 2018. From July 2020, new diesel wood chippers must be made with stage V engines using diesel particulate filters to lessen the impact of emission. All stage V diesel wood chippers above 25HP will cost more. Such factors may impact the existing manufacturers and hamper the growth of the wood chipper machines market.
Europe the largest growing market
The U.K and Germany contribute the most to the wood chipper machines market due to increase in industrialization and urbanization. Rising use of wood chipping machines for reducing tree trunks and branches is likely to drive the demand for wood chipping machines in the U.K and France, thus offering new opportunities in such regions.
