Thirty-nine manufacturers have been analyzed and aggregated into an analytical framework to define a $52 million business in North America.
The chip truck body manufacturing business has numerous small manufacturers serving regional markets. The industry is highly competitive and has relatively low barriers to entry. This report details US and Canadian production of chip truck/bodies. The report breaks out shipments and market shares by chassis class and material. Also included are market dynamics, demand factors, and outlook, as well as profiles of all industry participants.
The three leading manufacturers accounted for 40% of units shipped and dollar value of sales in 2017. Several chip truck body manufacturers also manufacture other truck bodies, most common being construction and demolition dump and landscape dump bodies.
Some large chip truck/body customers have in recent years brought chip body manufacturing in-house, because of which there has been some decline in market shares of leading manufacturers. These customers typically are companies which provide upfit services for chip bodies along with other tree care equipment, such as aerial bucket equipment, etc.
These and other topics are the subject of this report. The report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
