Modesto, Calif., April 10, 2019 — A new market research report by SpecialtyResearch.net examines the manufacture of dump trucks and dump trailers in the United States and Canada.

Nearly forty-two thousand dump truck/bodies and fourteen thousand dump trailers were manufactured by US and Canadian companies in 2018, for a combined annual output of $1.2 billion.

The report, titled Dump Truck & Dump Trailer Manufacturing in North America, presents 2018 market size and shares of dump truck/body production, segmented by chassis class. Data for dump trailers is broken out by dump type—side-dump, bottom-dump and end-dump. Segments for both trucks and trailers are also broken out by steel vs. aluminum construction

The manufacture of dump truck bodies is dominated by two groups of companies—TBEI and Godwin. These two groups together account for over 50% of total dump truck units produced for the North American market. While TBEI and Godwin companies are also active in dump trailer manufacture, they do not command the same degree of dominance in trailer production as in the truck/body markets. In both the truck/body and trailer segments, 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.

A moderate increase in sales of dump bodies is estimated over the next few years, driven by replacement demand and growth in the construction and oil drilling segments. Dump trailer shipments are expected to grow at low single-digit rates in 2019 and 2020, and then decline from 2021, before turning positive in 2023. On the supply chain side, the import tariff regime imposed since 2018, particularly on steel and aluminum, is beginning to impact prices as manufacturers pay increased duties on materials imported from China.

The report includes a five-year history, a forecast through 2023, profiles of 153 North American dump truck and trailer manufacturers, and an Excel database with market size and competitive share breakouts in units and dollars for all companies included in the analysis.

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