49 manufacturers analyzed and aggregated into an analytical framework to define the business of van body fabrication.
A nearly $2 billion industry—largest single vocational truck/body segment

Van body fabricators are on the cusp of the consumer-led growth in residential deliveries. This single factor is changing a once-staid business of undifferentiated box-like products into an industry that requires a solutions approach and innovative thinking on design and functionality. New demands such as last-mile delivery of fresh and frozen foods, multi-compartment fridge/freezer and dry goods combinations, are impact factors that are changing the landscape for the diverse manufacturers of van bodies in North America.
Near-term, ready-made cargo vans such as Sprinter are providing vigorous competition at lower load ranges. Further into the future, developments in drones touted by Amazon and traditional delivery services such as UPS may loom, but competitive impact is a sheer speculation at this point. Accordingly, vehicle-based deliveries, whether truck vans or ready vans, will see significant growth with the unrelenting underlying trend to residential deliveries.

About The Report

The report provides a vista view of this vocational segment, difficult-to-analyze due to extreme fragmentation. Many small players at local/regional level participate successfully in this activity, but complicate the market size and competitive analysis picture, compared to the handful of national manufacturers.
