What Market Opportunities Can Timber Trailer Manufacturers Capitalize On?

“Demand for Higher Capacity Trailers and e-Trailers Rising”

With increasing residential and commercial construction in Europe, demand for wood is growing in the region, which is a key growth opportunity for forestry trailer manufacturers.

Logging trailer manufacturing companies are aiming at providing several models of logging machinery that have high payload capacities for the transportation of wood and other materials as they improve the economic feasibility of log transportation from remote areas.

Many key market players also aiming to provide features such as 360-degree rotation of the trailer that allows them to load and reach greater distances. One of the major growth opportunities for logging truck manufacturers is the electrification of logging trailers as many companies are working on developing logging e-trailers that will reduce CO2 emissions.

What May Stunt Demand Growth of Log Hauling Trailers in Europe?

“High Vehicle Cost and Dearth of Skilled Logging Trailer Drivers”

Shortage of qualified drivers is a major drawback for logging trailer owners. It is not easy to drive a logging trailer, and hence, it is important that a highly-skilled driver who can handle the crane along with the trailer is employed.

Availability of alternative in-forest vehicles to access wood and other forest products that are smaller and lighter can hamper the demand for timber trailers in Europe.

High cost of logging trailers can also be a restraint for market growth as both, medium-size logging trailers and large-size logging trailers are expensive, and their pricing can reach up to US$ 60,000 and above. Not all end users can pay this large amount for machinery. This factor can impact the sales of logging trailers in the European region to some extent.

Rising fuel prices and increasing cost of qualified workforce for machinery handling are factors that may hamper demand for logging trailers in the European region.

Country-wise Insights

Where Does Russia Stand in the European Market for Logging Haulers & Trailers?

“High Round Wood Production Drives Need for Log Hauling Trailers”

Russia held almost 1/4 of the Europe logging trailer market share in 2021.

The market is predicted to be driven by the fact that Russia has the highest round wood production in the European region, which, in turn, is accelerating demand for logging haulers in the country.

Russia is a prime exporter of timber and other forestry products in Europe, which is an important factor driving logging trailer usage in the country.

Why is NORDICS a Lucrative Market in Europe for Forestry Trailer Suppliers?

“Logging Trailer Rental Services Popular in the Region”

Over the forecast period, the NORDICS region is expected to be one of the most lucrative markets for logging trailers in Europe. According to the analysis, the NORDICS logging trailer market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.7% over the forecast period. Manufacturers are redesigning their logging trailers by extending the vehicle range of the trailer.

Many companies in NORDICS provide rental services for logging trailers for short- term or long-term requirements. They have strong focus on customer satisfaction and also offer a versatile range of logging trailer accessories. As such, NORDICS is considered a profitable market for quad logging trailer providers in the European region.

Category-wise Insights

Which Logging Trailer Size Enjoys High Demand in Europe?

“Demand for Medium-size Logging Trailers Set to Be Prominent”

Medium-size logging trailers have the highest potential for growth, and are expected to register an absolute incremental opportunity of US$ 22.1 Mn during the forecast period of 2022-32. The log trailer type used for log transportation is dependent on the size of the logs being transported and the condition of the roads.

Increasing preference for medium-size logging trailers with grapples that have a payload capacity of 8 to 15 tons is being witnessed in Europe. Transportation accounts for 50% of the forest industry’s costs, and higher vehicle payload capacity can reduce fuel costs as well.

Which Logging Trailer Type is Preferred by Drivers for Transportation?

“European Market Dominated by Off-road Logging Trailers”

Off-road logging trailers are predicted to account for more than 3/4 market share in 2022.

Off-road vehicles are generally preferred for driving on unsurfaced terrains that are unstructured. Logging trailers for off-road transportation and ATV logging trailers use robust cranes that ensure optimal operation for wood logging and other materials.

Off-road log trailers have attached cranes that are used for loading and unloading large logs in forest areas.

Impact of COVID-19 Crisis

The COVID- 19 crisis harmed several industries on a global level. The pandemic led to huge losses for the automotive sector as all manufacturing activities were closed due to lockdowns. Closure of production plants in many countries in Europe added to the pressure on small- and medium-scale. Many manufacturing industries also faced raw material shortages due to closed borders.

According to studies, the European market experienced a large economic hit in 2020, but is recovering as less severe restrictions are in place now by governments on industries and their production facilities. The same was the case for logging trailers for grapples, besides other types.
