Platform and Curtainside Trailer Manufacturing in North America: Market Size, Shares & Analysis



DUBLIN, Mar. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Platform and Curtainside Trailer Manufacturing in North America: Market Size, Shares & Analysis" report to their offering.


This report examines the business of platform and curtainside trailer manufacture in North America. Platform trailers include flatbed trailers, drop deck trailers, and flatbed and drop deck extendable trailers. Curtainside trailer manufacture is a niche segment within platform trailers, accounting for less than 5% of total platform trailers manufactured in 2012. Such units feature a tarping system mounted on the platform trailer as an upper structure.

This research identifies thirty-seven manufacturers of platform trailers in North America in 2012, nine of which manufacture curtainside trailers. The study is a one-time picture of manufacturers, with the key objective of identifying 'who is who' in the business, with their estimated production/sales in units and at market values. Included is estimates of 2012 production numbers and market shares, an overview of the broad competitive picture - inclu! ding standings of key identified manufacturers - and the demand outlook for the industry through 2017.

Platform and curtainside trailers are manufactured in all-steel, all-aluminum or composite/combination of steel and aluminum material. Close to 45% of platform and curtainside trailers manufactured are in composite material. Though a large number of companies offer all-steel trailers, these trailers accounted for just 24% of total platform trailers manufactured in 2012. Industry leaders indicated that there is a growing demand for aluminum platform trailers from fleets in the last few years due to their higher payload capacity as compared to steel or composite trailers. Additionally, steel beams in combination trailers run a higher risk of damage from de-icing salt and chemicals.

The report can be put to immediate use for sales and market planning, M&A identification, competitive share analysis, alliances and technology transfer considerations.
