Truck Dealers in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Truck Dealers

The Truck Dealers industry has benefited since 2010 from recovering demand from the manufacturing, construction and trucking sectors, and industry revenue has inched toward prerecession levels in recent years. The economic recovery released pent-up demand from the industry's primary markets, resulting in a strong increase in sales of heavy-duty trucks. However, new federal fuel-efficiency regulations will be a double-edged sword for the industry going forward; in the short-term, dealers may experience pre-buying activity as customers move to preempt impending price hikes, while in the long-term, higher purchasing costs from manufactures will likely constrain profit margins. Nevertheless, positive economic trends are expected to sustain industry growth in the next five years.

This industry is comprised of operators that sell new and used medium- and heavy-duty commercial trucks. In addition to new truck sales, many companies offer a wide variety of used trucks and new truck parts. Many dealers also provide truck repair services. This industry does not include light truck or sport utility vehicle (SUV) dealers.

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.
