The Truck Dealers industry has expanded slowly over the past five years, as it recovers from the burdens of the global financial crisis and the subsequent effect on business confidence and freight volumes. Business confidence has remained relatively positive despite some small fluctuations, las the industry's customers have become more certain in future income streams and more willing to invest in new trucks. Rising merchandise trade volumes have also helped truck dealers, as road freight operators – the industry's largest market – have had to increase their capacity.
This industry includes operators that primarily sell medium- and heavy-duty trucks. The sale of trucks excludes the sale of truck semi-trailers, minivans and utility vehicles. The industry's activities also exclude repair and maintenance services, the sale of truck parts and other aftermarket services.
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.
