Research and Markets
(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/p59tl9/hopper_bottom) has announced the addition of the "Hopper Bottom Grain Trailer Manufacturing in North America: Market Size, Shares & Analysis" report to their offering.

This report examines the business of hopper bottom grain trailer manufacture in North America. While grain is also sometimes transported in commodity trailers - which are essentially trailers with self-unloading capabilities through a moving floor or a conveyor belt - this study is restricted to grain trailers that discharge their loads through hoppers at the base of the trailer, with traps that are opened to unload the consignment. Manufacturers featured in this report may also produce live floor commodity trailers, but these units have not been included in the hopper bottom grain trailer market estimates.

This study presents estimates of 2012 production/sales in units and at market values, an overview of the broad competitive picture - including standings of key identified manufacturers - and the demand outlook for the industry through 2017.

The grain trailer industry comprises a few very large manufacturers and many small manufacturers. This report has identified and presented data and analysis on 27 US and Canadian manufacturers of this type of trailer.

Total market size has been segmented by the material used for construction of the trailers - steel, aluminum and combination units that are built with both steel and aluminum components. Due to the dominance of the two leading manufacturers, both of which manufacture aluminum trailers, the size of the market for aluminum hopper grain trailers is significantly larger than the market for steel units. As with other types of trailers, two established factors contribute to the popularity of aluminum grain trailers - lighter weight and hence greater payload, and greater corrosion resistance.
