Truck on: Operators will have to adapt to new technologies, hurting profit for smaller companies



Abstract

Truck Trailer Manufacturing

Revenue for the Truck Trailer Manufacturing industry is expected to increase over the five years to 2016. Trucking and freight activity are highly cyclical and sensitive to the general economic climate. Therefore, at the onset of the economic recovery, the level of freight and trucking activity in the United States increased dramatically. In the coming years, operators will have to adapt to new technologies that make truck trailers lighter and more aerodynamic, supporting the fuel efficiency of heavy-duty trucks. This trend may hurt the profitability of smaller companies that lack sizeable economies of scale or sufficient research and development funding.

Operators in this industry manufacture trailers that are specifically designed for use on heavy-duty trucks. Trailer types vary based on size and purpose, and include dry van, flatbed and refrigerated trailer varieties. This industry does not include light truck trailers or travel trailers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
