N.A. Commercial Vehicle Outlook

Posted by ACT Research LLC. on Aug 28, 2019 4:31:45 PM

ACT's North America Commercial Vehicle OUTLOOK is the premier report of its kind. Since 1986, ACT Research has been working directly with OEMs as they discretely share their data and information, allowing ACT Research to have an unprecedented level of understanding of the commercial vehicle market. Couple this data with our award-winning economist, robust databases, and years of industry experience and you get a best-in-class outlook for the industry.

"...the information [provided] is very helpful; it helps us connect the dots in our business. We’re concerned about what’s going to happen in the marketplace, is freight going up or down…we need to know how our customers are going to be impacted. We really need this information." - Kirk Mann, Hitachi Capital America

The N.A. CV OUTLOOK is a robust report that forecasts the future of the commercial vehicle industry, looking at the next 1-5 years, with the objective of giving OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, and the investment community the information they need for planning in a deeply cyclical industry. The report provides a complete overview of North American CV markets, taking a deep dive into relevant demand drivers, pivoting on current market activity (from orders and backlogs to production and sales), before arriving at unit forecasts for different CV vehicle classes.
