Mexican manufacturers are growing market share in a trailer segment where no player has more than a 10% share

Modesto, Calif., February 25, 2019 — A market research report by SpecialtyResearch.net examines dump semi-trailer fabricators in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Over 16,000 dump trailers were manufactured by some 100 companies in the USMCA (ex-NAFTA) market, for a combined annual output of $780 million. Mexican manufacturers are aggressively competing in this market, primarily in the steel end-dump trailer category, accounting for over 15% of total dump trailer shipments.

The report, titled Dump Trailer Manufacturing Industry in North America, examines dump trailer production by dump type (side, bottom and end dump) and material used in construction—steel and aluminum.

Numerous small, regional fabricators are increasingly posting strong and growing competition against established players. Large players use their country-wide dealer networks for distribution, while smaller fabricators cater to local demand.

Primarily driven by trends in the construction industry, this segment is expected to grow at low single digits in the next two years. On the supply chain side, the import tariff regime imposed since 2017, particularly on steel and aluminum, is beginning to impact prices as manufacturers pay increased duties on materials imported from China.

Dump Trailer Manufacturing in North America is part of a series of over 30 reports on individual segments of the trailer and vocational truck manufacturing activity in North America, available from SpecialtyResearch.net.
