The demand for road transportation depends on the economic conditions and the output of various industries. Industries such as retail, automotive, construction and others rely on semi-trailers for their logistics requirements. The semi-trailer market’s growth is governed by the overall economic growth after a recession in 2008 which severely affected the market demand and new vehicle production. Growing manufacturing activity in developed as well as developing regions has helped the market to grow after this slump. Fleet operators are also expanding their fleets owing to the rise in demand for freight transportation.

Fluctuating fuel prices has resulted in trailer manufacturers and fleet operators to reduce the operating cost and stabilize the variable operating costs. Fleet operators are looking for solutions which will help them to operate efficiently and reduce the downtime of their assets. Manufacturers are focusing on developing lightweight and aerodynamic semi-trailers which will enable the operators to legally carry more freight and reduce the overall fuel consumption of the vehicle. The consumption is reduced through reducing the fuel losses owing to aerodynamic drag. Fleet operators are using trailer tails and side skirts along with telematics to reduce the fuel consumption, emission levels and optimize their operations.

This report covers the semi-trailer market and is broadly segmented by region (Asia-Oceania, Europe, North America, and RoW) focusing on key countries in each region. The market is further segmented by trailer type (Dry Van, Refrigerated, Flatbed, Lowbed & Others) by number of axles (Less than 3, 3 to 4 & Greater than 4), by tonnage (Below 25 tons, 25 to 50 tons, 51 to 100 tons & Above 100 tons).

The global market size, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 34.3 Billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 7.12% between 2015 and 2020. The largest semi-trailer producing region, Asia-Oceania is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.09% during the study period.

The semi-trailer market size is estimated to be at USD 24.3 Billion in 2015, which is projected to grow to USD 34.3 Billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 7.12%

Inland freight transportation forms a major part of the overall freight transportation in various industries such as manufacturing and construction, automotive, and energy among others. Semi-trailers play a major role in inland road transportation given their flexibility in use and versatility of vehicles. Development in infrastructure and growth in industrial activates in emerging nations is acting as a stimulant for increasing the number of semi-trailers in the current fleet of fleet-owners. Population growth in these regions is further driving the demand for semi-trailers, as it necessitates increase in movement of raw material and finished goods. Increasing age of current fleet is also expected to drive the replacement demand for semi-trailers. Major OEMs are designing fuel-efficient models that offer cost savings to fleet operators to gain competitive advantage.

The global market in Asia-Oceania is growing at a good pace, given the increasing demand and expansion of global OEMs in these regions. Rapid infrastructure development and growth in population are driving the demand for semi-trailers in this region. North America is estimated to be the second-largest market for semi-trailers in 2015, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.84% from 2015 to 2020. The U.S. is estimated to dominate the North American semi-trailer market during the forecast period. Europe is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.29% following the economic recovery of major countries such as Germany, the U.K., and France.

Dry van semi-trailer is the most commonly used trailer for logistics; these trailers are used by LTL and FTL fleet operators for their operations, due to their versatility and cost efficiency. The dry van semi-trailer market is estimated to account for the highest share in the global market, following their wide applications in multiple industries. The market size for dry van semi-trailers is estimated to reach USD 16.6 Billion by 2020.

The global market is dominated by few top players such as China International Marine Containers (Group) Co. Ltd. (China), Wabash National Corporation (U.S.), Great Dane Partnership Limited (U.S.), Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company (U.S.), and Schmitz Cargobull AG (Germany) along with regional suppliers.
