Market Overview

The Europe Specialty Vehicle Market size is expected to reach a valuation of USD 33.54 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.45% during the forecast period (2022–2030).

The term "specialty vehicle" is commonly used in the business. A specialty vehicle is one that is designed to serve a certain professional objective. They can be created entirely from scratch or modified from an existing vehicle. One of the most well-known forms of specialised vehicles is ambulances. Despite the fact that a family vacation in an RV appears to be a "specialty," recreational vehicles are rarely referred to as such. Due to the vast number of local and international participants, the specialty vehicle industry is highly fragmented. As a result, there is a great deal of competition. Some of the market participants surveyed are investing extensively in new product research and development that can benefit both end-users and the environment. Nissan, for example, unveiled their fully-electric ambulance in Japan in May 2020, with the goal of removing pollution, noise, and vibration from the electric powertrain, which would help both patients and paramedics who must handle sensitive equipment in the back of a moving vehicle. The global specialised vehicle market is predicted to grow at a 3.21 percent CAGR through 2030, bringing in USD 128.65 billion in sales. The COVID-19 epidemic, which interrupted transportation operations and affected the supply chain, caused a decline in the market in 2020.

The market for specialist vehicles is being driven by an increase in European government spending on law enforcement and healthcare facilities. For example, in the fiscal year 2019-2020, the United Kingdom spent roughly GBP 153 billion, up 2% from the previous year.

Market Dynamics

Market Driving Factors

  • Expenditures on law enforcement have increased and Increase in Riots: A increase in government spending on law enforcement and healthcare facilities around the world is driving demand for speciality vehicles. The increase in law enforcement spending is related to an increase in riots and protests in the region. From Hong Kong to Haiti, Bolivia to the United Kingdom, there were numerous protests in the region. In Europe, the number of major protests has increased dramatically since 2009 which drives the specialty vehicles market towards growth.
  • Increasing Use of Ambulances: Europe was the second-largest market for Specialty Vehicles in the global demand for ambulance services. Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Italy are all major European marketplaces. According to the European Commission (EC), around 100 million persons in Europe have one or more physical disabilities, with this number predicted to climb due to an increase in accident occurrence throughout the forecast period. It would certainly increase the demand for ambulance transport to hospitals. As a result, the market for Specialty Vehicles in Europe is predicted to increase significantly throughout the forecast period.

Market Restraining Factors

  • Challenges Linked with Specialty Vehicles: When it comes to expanding their business, specialty car manufacturers are faced with several business alternatives that can be extensively adjusted. These out-of-date systems are costly to operate and prevent automakers and specialty vehicle makers from adopting new technology. Furthermore, it is required for internal and external communication due to strict EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) regulations. Keeping up with shifting demand is one of the most difficult problems for specialty vehicle manufacturers. Manufacturers of automobiles and specialty vehicles must take steps to increase manufacturing efficiency and transparency. Self-monitoring capabilities for preventative maintenance and service, as well as the ability to support multi-mode manufacturing and Just in Time manufacturing, are among today's industrial demands. Manufacturers must focus on lowering costs and delivering appealing services as a result of shifting platforms, new service model requirements, and rising material and manufacturing expenses. Customers' purchasing patterns are evolving dramatically in the specialty vehicle market, particularly when it comes to product customisation. OEMs are confronted with additional options and complexity as the need for customization develops, and as a result, the manufacturer may face certain issues in the European market.

Key Market Opportunities

  • Large Tourism Sector: With over 700 million inbound tourists arriving in the region each year, Europe is the global leader in international tourism. As several countries become more mobile in the 2010s, the rate of growth quickened. In the European Union, tourism is a key economic activity with far-reaching implications for economic growth, employment, and social development. It has the potential to be a formidable tool in the fight against economic stagnation and unemployment. There is a lot of demand for Recreational Vehicles (RVs) in Europe because of the enormous tourism sector, which means there is a lot of opportunity for producers in the region.
