FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (Sept. 20, 2023) NTEA – The Work Truck Association — released the third edition of the U.S. Commercial Vehicle Market Report – Powered by Commercial Truck Trader, NTEA and S&P Global Mobility. This semi-annual industry report, which was launched in 2022,  delves into the details, data and trends around the commercial vehicle life cycle — from chassis sales to truck registration to later stages when used vehicles re-enter the sales market.

“Navigating market and business challenges and opportunities is something our industry organizations do day in and day out,” said Kevin Koester, NTEA managing director. “As an Association, we value the opportunity to serve these companies by sharing data and insights in the U.S. Commercial Vehicle Market Report they can use — and put to work — in their strategic operational planning.”

“Understanding the industry is crucial.

“As we move into the back half of 2023, some rebalancing in the U.S. truck market is evident,” notes Andrej Divis, executive director, global heavy truck research at S&P Global Mobility. “Two quick examples are shifts in the mix of GVW ratings compared to a year ago, and in the sizes of the fleets driving the market. In the year to date, we have really seen large fleets return to the market in a big way. We look forward to sharing more details at NTEA’s upcoming Executive Leadership Summit.”
