Truck and bus manufacturers experienced high volatility over the past five years, with the recession and associated drop in trade activity pummeling revenue. However, as the global economy recovers, trade will increase and, in turn, boost demand for industry products. A growing number of operators will move their operations abroad to take advantage of high demand from emerging economies.
Companies in this industry manufacture truck and bus chassis and assemble trucks, buses and other specialty heavy-duty vehicles, including ambulances and firefighting trucks. This industry includes heavy trucks used by freight companies but excludes passenger vehicles.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
