Market Overview

Research and Markets: Crane Truck/Body Manufacturing in North America


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Crane Truck/Body Manufacturing in North America" report to their offering.

The manufacture of trucks/bodies generically known in the industry as crane trucks is a complicated process involving chassis producers, final equipment assemblers and intermediate manufacturers, each vying separately for the attention of distinctly different end users, from small service contractors to giant utilities. The type of companies involved in this industry range from a handful of mass producers of bodies and heavy-duty lift cranes to those who make integrated, value-added products, often with captive production of the bodies, accessories and cranes. Based on the approximate number of final trucks, this application represents a manufacturing activity of around $127 million, for body fabrication companies in the industry.

Going forward, the key factors for success and survival will be market penetration, in turn based on differentiation and more user-friendly specification processes for the final truck.

These and other issues are analyzed in this study, to provide a solid perspective on the industry structure and dynamics of this specialized vocational segment.
