2020 Data, 2021 Outlook, 5-Year Forward Forecasts, Impact of Covid19, 5-Year History


17 manufacturers analyzed and aggregated into an analytical framework to define a $614 million business in North America


Includes Excel data tables!


This report is an analysis and evaluation of the tow (wrecker) and carrier (rollback) manufacturing business in the United States and Canada, breaking out shipments and market shares by chassis class.


Tow and carrier demand was hit hard by the pandemic, with 2020 shipments estimated to have declined by ~20% over 2019. A sharp decline in miles driven as a large share of the population began working from home, as well as limited operations at manufacturing facilities and supply-chain constraints, all contributed to this decline.


Market share is concentrated in the hands of the leading manufacturers. The two leading players accounted for over 80% of unit shipments and dollar value of sales in 2020. One manufacturer dominates the segment, accounting for more than 60% of total wreckers and carriers manufactured in 2020. The company has more than two-thirds share of the wrecker market and more than half of the carrier (rollback) segment.


Barriers to entry are high, as patented equipment designs are with leading players. Distributors prefer manufacturers offering a wide range of tow, recovery, and hauling (carrier) equipment, as well as models designed to meet all needs of towing service operators.


These and other topics are the subject of this report from SpecialtyResearch.net (“SRN”). The report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
