Comprehensive analysis of 420 manufacturers of 18 key types of truck bodies covering the gamut from light, medium and heavy-duty, aggregated into an $8.5 billion industry.
About This Report
The outcome of the vocational use of final vehicles rests in the hands of scores of small to large fabricators in North America. These range from one-segment specialists to larger corporations that cover more than one type of truck body for mounting on dedicated chassis. As in any fragmented industry with scores of small producers, there is a trend towards consolidation and diversification.
This report provides a vista view of the entire industry, from the standpoint of where the truck chassis is applied in the delivery chain, from truck manufacturer to body fabricator to final customer. The database and analysis cover 420 identified body fabricators, breaking out units by light, medium and heavy-duty, with units and dollar sales and other breakouts unique to each segment such as-by way of example-configuration, types of sub-products, capacity, materials, etc.
