NTEA releases 20th edition of Annual Manufacturers' Shipments Survey Report

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - Sept. 4, 2019 - PRLog -- NTEA's newly released Annual Manufacturers' Shipments Survey (AMSS) Report (20th edition) reports that truck equipment industry shipments increased 15.9% in 2018 — a significant acceleration from the 2.9% climb the previous year. This publication, featuring 2018 data, enables the industry to estimate market size by dollars and units for 77 product lines. The Association collects and evaluates aggregate results based on data submitted from 93 participating companies. The commercial vehicle community can lean on directional guidance from this report to help assess business performance.

"Beyond insights into annual growth, AMSS offers reliable market size data in terms of dollars and units," said STeve Latin-Kasper, NTEA director of market data and research. "It's a powerful tool that aligns with our mission of furthering industry knowledge, growth and profitability by helping companies in the work truck sector effectively evaluate market potential and develop sound strategic plans."

Following the pattern of previous studies, product line growth rates varied considerably. For 2018, data suggests some were down, while others made gains much more quickly than the industry overall.
