SpecialtyVehicles.net (SVN), a business research consulting firm that analyzes vocational truck market segments, has released a business research report detailing the size, structure, competition, and trends underlying the beverage truck/body and trailer manufacturing industry in North America.
The report is titled The Beverage Truck/Body and Trailer Manufacturing Industry in North America: Analysis and evaluation of the size, segmentation, growth, units in use, trends, and competition in the manufacture of vocation-specific truck/bodies and trailers for beverage applications in North America.
According to SVN, this vocational body fabrication activity has been in decline for several years, primarily as a result of the competition from generic over-the-road truck trailers that are increasingly moving product that does not need a specialized beverage truck or trailer controlled environment. Extensive refurbishing of existing units has also weakened demand, further resulting in a tight consolidation of production among a handful of manufacturers.
The report provides a breakout of market shares in units and value for all manufacturers, together with detailed census analysis on the operating universe of beverage trucks.
