The grain body manufacturing business, with low barriers to entry, has numerous small manufacturers catering to local demand. This report details US and Canadian production of grain truck/bodies, breaking 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 fragmented nature of the industry is evident from market share data. The three leading manufacturers accounted for less than 30% of dollar value of sales in 2017. Several participants manufacture fewer than 100 units annually.
Grain bodies are mounted on Class 7 and 8 heavy-duty chassis, with more than 80% mounted on Class 8 chassis. Bodies are manufactured in steel and aluminum, with steel used in more than two-thirds of all bodies.
More than 40% of grain bodies are manufactured in the Western Canada region where eleven manufacturers are located. In the United States, 35% of US + Canada grain truck/body production is in the West North Central division of the Midwest region-corn and soybean producing states. Grain production drives demand, and the United States has experienced bumper production of grains since 2014.
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.
