Major companies are profiled in detail to include descriptions of their business and key operating features. Findings in the report include:
Annual production for all three truck/body categories examined at the time the research was conducted was estimated at 83,609 units.
While the industry consists of numerous players and is highly fragmented, the top five manufacturers of bodies for these applications account for 35.6% of total industry dollar sales, estimated at $630 million.
There has been considerable growth in all of the three truck/body categories as utility companies are replacing their old equipment.
