Conveyor Delivery Truck/Body Manufacturing in North America Size, Shares, Segmentation, Competitors, Channels, Trends, and Outlook Underlying the Manufacture of Conveyor Delivery Truck Bodies used in Aggregate, Seed & Fertilizer Delivery. 2017 – 2022 Analysis & Outlook
Conveyor delivery trucks discussed in this report are stone slingers and fertilizer/seed tenders. No identified manufacturer offers both product types. These have been evaluated together as a segment owing to similarity in delivery system—conveyor-based.
Virtually all conveyor delivery trucks are mounted on heavy-duty Class 8 chassis. All truck-mounted fertilizer/seed tenders and 95% of stone slingers are installed on Class 8 heavy-duty vocational/straight truck chassis.
Stone slinger manufacturing is a niche business, with four identified manufacturers. A large share of fertilizer/seed tenders are trailer-mounted. Several manufacturers only offer trailer-based fertilizer/seed tenders, and those that manufacture truck-mounted units typically sell a larger number of trailer-based units.
The five leading fertilizer tender manufacturers accounted for 60% of unit shipments and 63% of dollar value of sales in 2017. The leading stone slinger manufacturer has about 33% share of its segment.
The fertilizer tender market is a mature one, with several manufacturers offering the product, and competition levels are high. Larger-sized tenders are experiencing greater demand; however restrictions and state regulations on road weights are a challenge to how “big” a tender can get. Tender versatility is an important factor for buyers, and customers look for tenders that can handle multiple commodities during different seasons.
