Top hydraulic hose and hose assembly companies in the U.S.

Posted by IndustryNet on Monday, March 11, 2019

100000354_hydraulic_Hose_AssemblyHydraulic systems depend on hoses in order to operate. Literally pumping the lifeblood of the system, hydraulic hoses have to be built to exacting standards to withstand the extremely high stresses placed upon them.

Industry Overview

Manufacturers of hydraulic hoses generate nearly $7.8 billion in sales annually, according to data collected by MNI, compiler of the industrial data that powers IndustryNet. 

This value has remained relatively flat with only a 0.16 percent increase over the previous year. Just over 300 companies and 7,500 jobs are supported by this field.

Subject to the same external factors that the hydraulics industry overall experiences, the hydraulic hose sector is slated to expand in the coming years. Forecasts are predicting that construction will be the biggest driver in the growth of the industry.

Additionally, the adoption of new technologies such as digital hose monitoring systems and IoT-powered crimping machines will assist in driving new sales.

Company Distribution

An overwhelming number of hydraulic hose companies are located in the South, with 45 percent in this region. Trailing with 29 percent is the West, followed by the Midwest with 26 percent. In last place is the Northeast with just over 12 percent.

With the exception of the numbers for the Northeast, these distribution figures are nearly inverse from the overall industry's figures.
