An aerial work platform (AWP) also called bucket truck is a mechanical device that provides temporary access to inaccessible areas, generally at height, for individuals or machinery. There are different kinds of mechanized access platforms and may also be known as a "cherry picker" or "scissor lift" for the individual kinds. In general, they are used for temporary, flexible access reasons such as maintenance and construction job or for emergency access by firefighters, which separate them from permanent access facilities such as elevators. They are intended to lift limited weights, generally less than one ton, although some have a greater safe working load (SWL), which differentiates them from most crane kinds. Usually, they can be set up and operated by a single person.

Due to the inclusion of sophisticated technical features such as CAN bus, sensors, and telematics, the AWP industry is experiencing elevated popularity as these systems provide better safety parameters over standard platforms. Machines leverage a mixture of different controllers and sensors through the inclusion of CAN bus technology, providing the employees with fresh operational characteristics. The load-sensing technologies deployed in the newly developed MEWPs disable functioning in case of excessive weight, further providing more safety to the platform operators. Moreover, the aerial work platform market is experiencing the emergence of self-propelled access platforms that provide increased flexibility, stability, and security to the users. The easy operation & transportation of the self-propelled machinery is supporting the rising utilization in various application sectors including energy and oil & gas for maintenance purposes.

Based on the product, the personal portable lifts segment is expected to have a significant share in the aerial work platform market during the forecast period. Personal portable lifts are gaining popularity among applications for in-house maintenance and temporary construction for low-height activities. Due to technical advancements in machinery sectors, the low-level access platforms are being replaced by conventional ladders & scaffolding to achieve high safety levels. Several businesses working on the AWP market are creating new personal portable lifts that are provided as secure solutions to standard ladders.

Based on the application, the construction & mining application is expected to have a prominent share in the aerial work platform market during the forecast period. They are increasingly deployed in complex building & general infrastructure projects across the globe. Government initiatives primarily deploy effective machines & platforms to improve security and decrease the burden on human employees. The rising awareness in the South-East Asian countries and other developing countries related to machinery & time-saving benefits is further rising the requirement for technically-advanced platforms to address the construction sector demand. Countries including South Africa, India, and Japan are experiencing a number of infrastructure transformation operations expected to deliver enormous quantities of AWPs, further promoting market growth opportunities.

The North America aerial work platform market is expected to have a significant share in the market during the forecast period which can be attributed to several building maintenance & construction activities across the commercial & residential sectors. The demand is also increasing due to the presence of a technically-aware and economically-stable population, supporting the deployment of costly AWPs. In addition, strong government support for the use of freshly produced products with safety parameters and reduced employee accidents leads to elevated consumption of new products in the sector. Workers receive licensed training from producers and other organizations to guarantee safety and decrease fatalities in the workplace, contributing further to the growth of the AWP industry.
