This report details US and Canadian production of flatbed truck/bodies. The report breaks out shipments and market shares by chassis class and material. Included are market dynamics, demand factors and outlook, as well as profiles of 91 industry participants.
Flatbeds are manufactured in lengths ranging from 8 ft. to 30 ft. and are mounted on light-, medium- and heavy-duty truck chassis. About two-thirds of total flatbed truck/bodies are mounted on medium-duty Class 4-6 and heavy-duty Class 7 chassis, broken out about equally across the two chassis categories.
The segment has numerous small manufacturers catering to local/regional requirements. This is a highly regionalized market with most manufacturers serving customers who are situated within a 500-mile radius. Since flatbeds are low-priced truck/bodies, transportation costs play a major role in pricing of the product. Hence flatbeds are mostly sold direct to end-use customers. Despite the fragmented nature of the segment, one manufacturer dominates the segment with a 41% share in unit shipments and dollar value of sales.
The ten leading manufacturers accounted for 74% of shipments and dollar value of sales in 2017.
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.
Included with this report is an Excel file with six worksheets containing data from the report’s tables.
