Trailer manufacturers are increasing their production capacities or establishing new plants to capitalize on the growing demand for trailers, and gain benefits from lower capital requirements and labor costs in selected regions.

The market for trailer parts and components, such as composite-based parts, in countries such as China, Brazil, and Mexico, is projected to benefit significantly from increased demand for aftermarket and OEM products, thereby expanding the trailer suspension system market size.

  • For instance, in 2017, Pitts Enterprises expanded its Elba, Ala. manufacturing facility. This project will add 85,000 square feet to the company’s existing plant.
  • In 2017, Stoughton Trailers opened a new refrigerated trailer assembly line in Evansville, Wisconsin, which is capable of producing more than 2,500 units/year.

Trailer Suspension System Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Heavy-duty Trailers: In the on-road transportation sector, a major contributor to freight transport is heavy-duty trailers. Latin America, followed by Russia and China, are expected to register significant growth, and hence, are anticipated to be the most attractive regions during the forecast period.

Global trailer production is expected to register a CAGR of 3% to 4% (20202030), owing to steps taken by governments such as promotions and policies of fuel-saving technologies to reduce fuel-consumption and GHG emissions within their heavy-duty vehicle fleets.

Semitrailers account for over 90% of total trailer production across the globe. However, drawbar trailers are estimated to witness substantial demand over the next decade.

Simple & Attractive Equipment Financing Options to Boost Market Growth: Construction, manufacturing, and industrial companies focusing on goods transportation prefer their own equipment as compared to renting equipment from rental companies.

This is due to the easy availability of financing options that gives consumers the required purchasing power with flexible payment terms. Furthermore, financing can provide immediate access to the required trailers with a much lower-up front cost with competitive interest rates and low payments.

Suspension systems cost around US$ 400 - 1,100, depending upon the suspension type, and can account for nearly 7-12% of the total trailer cost. Attractive financing options for trailer are expected to increase the interest of customers to buy their own trailer rather than renting one out. This is expected to drive the growth of the trailer suspension system market to some extent.

Trailer Suspension System Market Restraints

Reduced Replacement Rate of Trailer Suspension Systems: The replacement rate of trailers and related components such as suspension systems, hydraulic cylinders, and others is declining. Total operational life of trailers and related components is estimated to be 8 - 18 years, which is a positive indicator for end users and customers.

However, considering market prospects, suspension system manufacturers and suppliers are highly dependent on volume sales to increase their profitability. Thus, this reduced replacement rate may somewhat hamper the growth of the global trailer suspension system market during the forecast period.
