Skid steer loaders with the engine power of 65-80 HP are likely to be most preferred loaders by customers. By 2026 end, skid steer loaders with engine power of 65-80 HP are estimated to reach close to US$ 2000 million revenue. Ease of operation and reliability are the major factors that are resulting in the increased use of skid steer loaders with 65-80 horsepower.

Skid steer loaders with the operating capacity of 2000-3000 Ibs are likely to witness the highest growth between 2017 and 2026. By 2026 end, operating capacity of 2000-3000 Ibs is estimated to bring in more than US$ 1,400 million revenue. Increased performance and productivity is driving skid steer loaders with 2000-3000 Ibs. Also, more ground-to-surface contact helps in optimizing machine power, thereby improving performance and productivity.

Among various industries, skid steer loaders are likely to find the largest application in the construction industry. Increasing infrastructure projects across the globe are driving the demand for skid steer loaders. Moreover, construction equipment users are adopting tracks over tires, hence solution known as Over-the-tire-track (OTT) is being used that can convert skid steer loaders into compact track loader.
