Growth Factors

 Increasing demand across the construction, defense, automotive, and energy sectors is anticipated to be a key factor driving market growth. In addition, increasing dependence of e-commerce companies on third-party logistics (3PL) providers to ensure transportation of goods through hub and spoke distribution model is also expected to augment market growth in the coming years.

Over the last few years, the product demand has witnessed strong growth on account of positive growth observed in the oil & gas industry. In the coming years, the market is poised to register steady growth due to relaxation of regulations with respect to length and load-carrying capacity of semi-trailers. Government regulations supporting the introduction of lightweight and eco-friendly transport vehicles are expected to shape the future market demand. However, lack of proper infrastructure required for transportation, especially in emerging economies is hampering the semi-trailer market growth.

Report Highlights

The dry vans segment accounted for the largest volume share of over 35.0% in 2020 and is anticipated to maintain its lead over the forecast period, with wide applications across multiple industries. Dry vans are generally used to transport freight that requires nominal protection against road and climate conditions. 

The flat bed trailer segment captured a sizeable volume share in 2020 and is estimated to expand at the second-highest CAGR of 6.4% in terms of revenue from 2021 to 2028. The growth in the construction industry across developed and emerging economies is anticipated to fuel the segment growth.

Asia Pacific held the largest revenue share of over 35.0% in 2020 and is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. The regional market is mainly driven by emerging economies such as India and China, which comprise large supply chains and logistics networks and are among the fastest-growing economies globally.

North America accounted for the second-largest revenue share in 2020. The North American market is currently in the replacement phase with an aging fleet that needs to be replaced with technologically advanced semi-trailers.
