53-Ft. Domestic Container Chassis Manufacturing Industry in North America: Size, Shares, Segmentation, Competitors, Growth, Channels & Trends 2013 – 2017 Historical Data, 2018 Data & Analysis 2019 – 2023 Forecast

This project provides a quantification and analysis of the business of manufacturing 53 ft. domestic container chassis for intermodal applications in North America—the United States, Canada and Mexico. While some 53-ft. domestic container chassis can be adjusted to accommodate the smaller 20‑ft. and 40‑ft. ocean shipping containers, the data in this report addresses only chassis produced for transporting 53-ft. domestic containers.

Over 18,000 53 ft. domestic container chassis were manufactured by 6 companies in the USMCA (ex-NAFTA) market, for a combined annual output of $330 million in 2018. This segment is dominated by one company, which fabricates over 80% of the total units for the North American market.

The demand for 53 ft. domestic container chassis is projected to grow moderately through 2020 and then contract gradually over the next two years.

Demand for domestic container chassis is mainly a function of economic growth and increase in intermodal freight transportation.
The proposed tariff on container chassis imported from China is expected to narrow the price differential between the units manufactured in North America and those imported from China and assembled in the United States, but the impact on supply of chassis is still evolving.
Most 53‑ft. domestic container chassis manufactured are fairly standardized units.
