Truck, Trailer & Motor Home Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Truck, Trailer & Motor Home Manufacturing in the US

Operators in the Truck, Trailer and Motor Home Manufacturing industry produce motor vehicle bodies, truck trailers, motor homes and recreational vehicles (RVs). The industry is set to speed forward over the five years to 2018, specifically due to increased demand from transportation services, greater domestic trips made by US residents, strong consumer sentiment and declines in the prices of oil and gas. Increased credit access is another factor expected to drive industry revenue growth, particularly RV sales. As consumers had greater access to credit during the current period, they were more likely to finance big-ticket purchases, such as trucks, trailers and motor homes. As a result, downstream truck, trailer and motor home dealers renewed demand for shipments from industry operators. Amid stronger demand, many industry operators are expected to expand production capacity. With the economy continuing to strengthen, industry revenue is expected to sustain growth as consumer spending continues to gradually improve.

Operators in this industry primarily produce motor vehicle bodies and cabs, truck, automobile and utility trailers, truck trailer chassis, detachable trailer bodies and detachable trailer chassis.

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.
