Vocational Truck/Body Industry in North America: Beverage & Vending Bodies. Size, Trends, Growth, Outlook & Competitive Structure Underlying the Manufacture and Market for Beverage and Vending Truck/Bodies in North America
This project provides a quantification and analysis of the business of manufacturing beverage and vending bodies in North America, which are custom manufactured for beverage and pre-packaged dry snack deliveries and sales. STN has reported on seven identified manufacturers. Market share is concentrated in the hands of the leading players, with the top three manufacturers accounting for more than 80% of the market in unit terms; the top two manufacturers accounted for nearly 70% of total units manufactured in 2015.
Going forward, growth in this vocational application is expected to remain flat, with replacement of ageing vehicles being the main demand driver. Consolidation of bottling companies has led to an increase in demand for larger beverage delivery bodies. Distributors constantly evaluate load configurations to achieve maximum productivity, and this has resulted in increased use of semi-trailers. Although beverage distributors have experimented with vehicles powered by alternative fuels in recent years, penetration levels remain low.
These and other aspects of this analysis are highlighted in this report from SpecialtyTransportation.net. This report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
