Underlying the Manufacture of Liftgates for Truck, Van & Trailer Applications

2017 – 2022 Analysis & Outlook


Analytical framework defining a $500 million+ business in North America.


Includes Excel data tables!

This report is an analysis of participants engaged in the fabrication of liftgates mounted on light-, medium- and heavy-duty straight trucks, cargo vans, and trailers.
Included are key segmentations by load-bearing capacity and material, as well as competitive shares, demand factors, trends, outlook through 2022, and profiles on eight major liftgate manufacturers.
Market size estimates are broken out by load-bearing capacities:

  • Light-duty liftgates, with capacities under 1,600 lbs., are primarily used on pickup trucks, cargo vans and service trucks.
  • Medium-duty liftgates, with capacities between 1,600 and 4,500 lbs., are used with dry freight vans, cargo vans and semi-trailers.
  • Heavy-duty liftgates, with load-bearing capacities over 4,500 lbs., are used for bulky and palletized loads, with dry freight vans, cargo vans, and semi-trailers.

Demand for liftgates moves in tandem with demand for several truck body types, primarily pickup trucks and van bodies. Van bodies are used in general freight movement, moving and storage, parcel delivery and food distribution industries. Commercial fleet owners and individuals who handle heavy and bulky cargo constitute the customer base for liftgates. Growth in the economy and an upward trend in general freight movement are some of the key demand drivers in the liftgate segment.
These and other topics are the subject of this report from SpecialtyTransportation.net (“STN”). The report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
