ALBANY, N.Y., July 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Overview of Fifth Wheel Coupling Market
The automotive is a major end-use industry of fifth wheel couplings. Fifth wheel coupling has emerged as a trailer mechanism for trucks and tractors. The fifth wheel coupling market has gained revenues on the back of the strides made in freight in transportation. The demand for fifth wheel coupling among original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket has been stridently spurred by advancements made in road infrastructure and rise in volumes of goods transported. To a great deal, the consumption has been fueled by efforts by governments especially in emerging economies to bolster road infrastructure. Advances in engineering of fifth wheel coupling have paved way to better designs and materials, all of which has eventually enabled vehicle drivers to vary the load distribution with remarkable manoeuvrability and balance. These technological advancements boost the demand.
By the end of the forecast period of 2019 – 2027, the fifth wheel coupling market is expected to exceed worth of US$ 500 Mn.
Improving Road Infrastructure Makes a Large Bearing for Freight Movements: World over, transportation infrastructure has been key to growth in several economies, with road infrastructure playing a seminal role. Governments have spent an impressive share of the GDP on this. The improvements in road networks have notably underpinned the movement of freight for commercial as well as consumer markets. Evidently, the urban centers in industrialized nations are witnessing rise of use of tractors and light trucks for this end. Businesses operating in these industries have preferred the use of fixed fifth wheel couplings due to their cost-effectiveness.
Steel manufacturers have been increasingly offering OEMs in the fifth wheel coupling splendid flexibility of design. A range of trailers have been thus used for different vehicles, including tend to the demand for trailers recreational vehicles. Burgeoning use of light trucks in parts of emerging economies for freight movement has also boosted prospect for fifth wheel coupling market.
Thriving International and Regional Trade Key Driver: Manufacturers of fifth wheel coupling are bustling with opportunities on the back of a thriving cross-border trade in numerous developing and developed countries. The demand among them has caught momentum due to industries benefitting from favorable trade policies. The use of both commercial and industrial goods has risen in emerging economies of Asia Pacific in the past few decades. Governments' initiatives to boost the transport sector largely have been underpinning new growth avenues.
