The barriers to entry in the semi-trailer industry are not high, and there are currently a large number of domestic companies. At the same time, affected by the GB 7258-2017 regulations, more domestic companies have entered the semi-trailer industry.
A semi-trailer is a trailer whose axle is placed behind the center of gravity of the vehicle (when the vehicle is evenly loaded) and is equipped with a coupling device that can transmit horizontal and vertical forces to the tractor. It is a heavy-duty transportation tool. Compared with "monolithic" vehicles, semi-trailers can improve the comprehensive economic benefits of road transportation. Transportation efficiency can be increased by 30-50%, cost reduced by 30-40%, fuel consumption reduced by 20-30%, and more importantly, The use of semi-trailers can also promote the organization of my country's logistics to a certain extent.
Semi-trailer is an important vehicle type for road transportation. It has the advantages of speed, maneuverability, flexibility, safety, etc., has a wide range of applications and has many models. At present, the main types of domestic trailers include dump semi-trailers, low-bed semi-trailers, van semi-trailers, and warehouse semi-trailers.
With the high-quality improvement of my country's economic development level and the continuous expansion of the scale of the logistics industry, the deepening and specialization of part of the road transportation industry is showing an accelerated development trend, providing a favorable development space for the semi-trailer industry. According to the "Report on the Development Status and Investment Strategy Recommendations of the Semi-trailer Industry in 2020" issued by the New Sijie Industry Research Center, China's semi-trailer production reached 1385,000 in 2019.
The world’s leading semi-trailer manufacturers such as Schmitz Cargobull, Great Dane Trailers, Krone, Koegel, Wabash National, etc. were established early. With long-term technology and market accumulation, these companies have established a complete technological innovation system and advanced manufacturing processes. , Comprehensive, systematic, product design and research and development models covering the entire life cycle of the product, as well as a complete quality control and after-sales service system, have formed a relatively complete management system.
The barriers to entry in the semi-trailer industry are not high, and there are currently a large number of domestic companies. At the same time, affected by the GB 7258-2017 regulations, more domestic companies have entered the semi-trailer industry. Although there are a large number of domestic enterprises, most of them are small in scale, and only a few have an annual production capacity of more than 10,000 vehicles/year. Therefore, the domestic semi-trailer market is less concentrated.
The domestic semi-trailer industry is relatively concentrated. At present, the production companies are mainly concentrated in Shandong and Hebei, which together account for about 70% of the total domestic output. The more well-known companies include Shandong Luoxiang Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Shandong Jiuzhou Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Shijiazhuang Yongda Trailer Co., Ltd., Shandong Enxin Special Vehicle Manufacturing Co., Ltd., etc.
Industry analysts from Xinsijie said that the development of the semi-trailer industry is closely related to national policies. Among them, GB1589-2016 creates replacement demand for semi-trailers that do not meet the new size, axle load and technical requirements, driving a substantial increase in the demand for semi-trailers in 2016; GB 7258-2017 stipulates requirements for three-axle warehouse fences, fence semi-trailers and other models The mandatory installation of air suspension and disc brakes stimulated the early consumption of dump semi-trailers and warehouse semi-trailers. In 2019, China's semi-trailer consumption increased rapidly. At the same time, under the influence of policies, the structure of China's semi-trailer industry has undergone major changes. Container semi-trailers, dump semi-trailers, and van semi-trailers have continued to increase their positions in the semi-trailer market, especially dump semi-trailers. Super fast growth, and the warehouse semi-trailer market will gradually be squeezed out.
