The global timber trailer market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 0.95% to reach US$1.244 billion by 2027, from US$1.165 billion in 2020. A timber trailer also called a timber lorry, is a flatbed or platform type trailer, used for the transport of logs from one place to another in a short time. These trucks are used for either commercial purposes such as small home renovations and woodwork or are used for construction applications like structures and supports in conditions with low loadbearing capacity. The weight of the logs on the timber trailer should not exceed the maximum load that can be borne by the bed of the trailer as it can lead to accidents and hazardous situations during transport.

Increasing construction and infrastructure activities globally are leading to the requirement for the faster delivery of bulk materials to aid in conducting proper and efficient construction, thereby increasing the demand for these trailers from the construction industry.

Furthermore, the market players involved are making investments and advancements to facilitate the timber trailer market growth. DOLL, unveiled its new trailer at the ‘Intermodellbau’, a trade fair for models and model sports, which was held in April 2018. The timber trailer was designed in such a way that it was easily manoeuvrable on narrow forest roads, mountainous paths, and steep roads. The new truck presented by Doll is also capable of transporting logs up to 22m in length. The trailer is two-axle and self-steering.

In addition, some of the steps and initiatives being taken by the government towards increasing the hauling distance and coverage of timber in an attempt to save forests are also increasing the demand for these trucks over the forecast period. For instance, on May 15, 2019, the partners in the Healthy Forest Initiative made some necessary changes to it. The initiative earlier allowed trucks to haul 80,000 pounds of timber, but according to the new rules, it was updated to 90,000 pounds for trucks with 6 axles to improve haulage capacity and ensure faster delivery.

Impact of COVID-19 on Timber Trailers Market

The global timber trailer market has been negatively impacted by an epidemic of COVID-19. Reduced industrial production was the outcome. This led to low global demand for timer-trailers as a result. The pandemic caused the automotive industry to suffer severe losses since lockdowns forced the closure of all industrial operations. Pressure on small- and medium-scale businesses increased due to the closing of production facilities in numerous nations. Due to tight borders, several manufacturing businesses also experienced a shortage of raw materials.
