Market Research Report -- Tanker Truck Body and Trailer Manufacturing Industry Growing

ROCKVILLE, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/13 -- MarketResearch.com has announced the addition of the market research report "Tanker Truck/Body and Tanker Trailer Manufacturing in North America: Analysis & evaluation of the size, segmentation, channels, and competitive structure underlying the fabrication and manufacture of tanker trucks and tanker trailers in North America" to their product offering.

Tanker trucks and trailers are containers designed for transport of dry bulk cargo, liquids, semi-liquids and gases. Tanker bodies scoped in this report also include vacuum tank bodies designed to transport hazardous and non-hazardous industrial and municipal waste. Tanker trailers are large over-the-road trailer bodies that are designed to be pulled by a tractor. Tanker truck bodies are mounted on truck chassis and are smaller in size and capacity than tanker trailers.

STN has identified 118 manufacturers of tanker truck bodies and trailers. The value of tanker fabrication in North America is estimated at $1.57 billion for 2011. Tanker manufacturing facilities are typically located in regions producing the material transported. This industry -- for both trucks and trailers -- is fragmented, with a large number of small, regionally focused manufacturers. Most manufacturers focus on just one product segment, and manufacturers present in a particular segment usually do not manufacture all product categories within that segment.

Market dynamics driving demand in each buyer segment are different, which in turn impact demand for tanker bodies in that product category. The energy and construction sectors are the primary determinants of demand for tanker bodies. The primary customer segment for both tanker trucks and trailers is the oil and gas industry. Other important customer segments include the chemical, construction and agricultural industries, municipal agencies, and contractors who service the septic waste industry.

The tanker truck and trailer manufacturing industry across all categories suffered a severe shrinkage in demand over the period 2008-2009. However the boom in the energy sector since 2010 has led to an unprecedented increase in demand for tankers that cater to the oil and gas industry. Production grew tremendously in 2011, with production up 31% over 2010. Despite the strong recovery since 2010, the market size of most categories in 2011, with the exception of crude oil tankers, continued to be below the peaks achieved in 2006-2007.

The outlook for 2012 in this segment remained positive, mainly because of an above-average increase in production of liquid and dry bulk trailers catering to the upstream and midstream segments of the oil and gas industry. Production of truck bodies and trailers in most other segments, however, was expected to remain flat in 2012. In addition to historical production numbers from 2006 - 2011, forecasts for the years 2012 - 2016 are included in this report.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...
