Analysis & evaluation of the size, segmentation, channels, and competitive structure underlying the fabrication and upfit of truck bodies for specialized/vocational applications in North America

With 284 identified manufacturers/fabricators of truck bodies in North America, this project is the culmination of a formidable market research task that presents an overall industry-wide picture, not available anywhere else in this analytical depth and scope.

The 396-page report analyzes product range differentiators, trends impacting the industry, and future outlook, including key technological innovations. This project began by examining hundreds of companies in virtually all product types and then building on this to arrive at a final list of 284 unique players that have a bona fide capability to fabricate truck bodies in North America.

The final vehicle incorporating the chassis and body can be categorized into two production categories: standardized products and products that are difficult to replicate. Examples of standardized products are dump trucks, van bodies, and service and utility trucks. These standardized products have lower average prices and are not as technologically advanced in their design. On the other hand, the products that are hard to replicate, such as concrete pumpers, concrete mixers, refuse trucks, vacuum tank trucks, and tow trucks, have more engineering in the design of the unit, resulting in a higher average unit price. Quite often the manufacturers of large custom trucks are also chassis manufacturers. By contrast, for standardized vehicles the chassis and body participants are most often separate industries, where the chassis is supplied to the body fabricator to complete the vehicle.

Trucks/bodies covered in this report are as follows:

  • Beverage & Vending Bodies
  • Concrete Mixer & Pump Bodies
  • Dry & Liquid Tank Bodies
  • Dump Bodies
  • Refuse & Recycling Bodies
  • Service & Utility Bodies
  • Street Sweeper Bodies
  • Tow Trucks & Rollback Carriers
  • Vacuum Tank Bodies
  • Van Bodies

In this report, each segment has been analyzed individually and then grossed-up into an overall industry overview that includes total market size, market shares, production break-out by region, an overview of profitability, revenue trends of leading public companies in this industry.

Certain manufacturers have, over the years, acquired companies and added product lines synergistic to existing businesses - either by product technology and design or by application and customer segment - to become dominant players in this industry. Both private equity buyers and strategic investors have been part of this consolidation. Groups discussed in this report include the Alamo Group, Federal Signal Corporation, JB Poindexter & Company, Inc., Oshkosh Corporation and the Godwin Group.

This report cohesively researches, analyzes and puts into a structured format, "who is who" in the business of truck body manufacturing in North America.

This is the only report of its kind on a $4.5 billion+ industry that is difficult to document without prior knowledge and skills in understanding the way a final truck is manufactured from the chassis up. The report can be put to immediate use for strategy, sales and market planning, M&A identification, market size quantification, competitive share analysis, and potential alliances through licensing or technology transfer agreements.

How This Report is Organized

  • 1. PREFACE introduces SpecialtyTransportation.net.
  • 2. SCOPE & METHODOLOGY defines the coverage of the report and outlines the methodology, assumptions and sources used in compiling the research.
  • 3. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY pulls together the study contents into a brief overview of industry highlights.
  • 4. INDUSTRY OVERVIEW presents data and analysis on industry structure, product mix and profitability analysis of listed industry participants.
  • 5. PRODUCT ANALYSIS BY TYPE compiles the total unit production and total dollar sales for manufacturers of the 10 types of truck bodies, including investment groups/conglomerates having multiple companies in different product categories.
  • 6. MANUFACTURER DATA is a tabulation that correlates employment and sales at each company, to arrive at a bird's eye view of the underlying industry structure. Location and websites of manufacturers are provided as a convenience to users wishing to access additional information on each company.

Need For This Study

  • Increased end-user demand that trucks be tailored to specific vocations.
  • Difficult to understand the industry in its entirety. Extreme fragmentation with nearly 300 body fabricators, from very small to large sophisticated players.
  • Each type/application is virtually a separate sub-industry, with own unique manufacturing, sales, customer and channel characteristics.
  • Truck body fabricators are a critical channel in the delivery process of the final truck to the end-customer, since the body type defines the final vocation of the truck.
  • Geographic breakouts are provided by manufacturing location to highlight the fact that many of the applications examined are highly local/regional businesses.
  • OE chassis, component, equipment, accessory and other manufacturers need to better understand this industry, as they share a common customer base; yet no one has properly quantified the finished/fabrication and upfit sides of the truck manufacturing business.
  • Increased liaisons and consolidations occurring between OEMs and body fabricators.

Invaluable for:

  • Sales/market planning
  • Acquisition and merger moves
  • Private equity investments
  • Bank/equity/debt submissions
  • New growth identification
  • Diversification into new markets
  • New product planning
  • Understanding manufacturers' strategies
  • Analyzing the competitive landscape
  • Investment presentations
  • Geographic planning by region
