ACT Publishes Global Trailer Market Forecast Update
OCT 20, 2015 - 6:47 am
ACT Research announced an update to its “Global Trailer Market Analysis & Forecast” white paper published last year.
The paper and a supporting index and graph package provides analyses, data, insights and forecasts through 2017 for the major trailer markets in Asia, Europe, North America, South America and other markets, including Australia and South Africa.
“To our knowledge this trailer information has never before been published in one source,” said Kenny Vieth, president and senior analyst of ACT Research. “Over the years, we’ve fielded many questions about the global trailer market, so we are very pleased to be able to provide this for our customers. This year we’ve included a summary at the beginning of the report that highlights the various market changes, such as regulations, legislations, mergers and acquisitions, and recessions, which have occurred since our 2014 white paper.”
ACT’s senior business consultant, Tom Czapka, explained that for each geographic area, the update looks at the macroeconomic background with actual trailer sales data for 2009-2014 and forecasts for 2015-2017.
“ACT Research has published a monthly U.S. Trailer Report since 1990, ultimately being the replacement for the old M37L published by the DOC. Over these many years, ACT’s trailer report has become the base analysis on the health of the U.S. trailer industry and is widely used by original equipment manufacturers, suppliers, the investment community and the U.S. government,” said Vieth. “It seemed a natural step to expand our knowledge to the global trailer market.”
