Logging trailer is designed to be driven by another motor vehicle and is attached to towing motor vehicle through a coupling. It is considered an efficient solution for companies to transfer logs between forest and bush to mill site. These trailers are connected to a logging trailer via a hitch coupled to trailer leech and truck. Logging trucks are offered in different sizes to accommodate different logs with timber hauling and weight requirements. Additionally, logging trailers address customers’ need for high stiffness and payload capacity requirements. This is also enabling the demand for logging trailers across the world.

Global Logging Trailers Market Restraint:

High costs associated with logging trailers and lack of skilled logging trailer drivers are expected to hinder the global logging trailers market growth. Logging trailers of medium and large size can cost in the range of US$ 4,000 to US$ 200,000, depending on the dimensions. These prices make logging trailers out of the budget and option for multiple potential customers in need. In addition, the end users are uncertain about the operating costs of these trailers. Moreover, the rising fuel costs and lack of qualified workforce are affecting the sales of logging trailers. This is anticipated to restrain the adoption of logging trailers, thus affecting the global logging trailers market growth.

Global Logging Trailers Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic:

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, multiple industry verticals experienced multiple logistical challenges as employees including truck drivers, logistics managers, and other were at large risk. Lockdowns were imposed by governments to contain the outbreak of coronavirus to ensure safety. Hence, the automotive sector faced a complete shutdown along with disruptions in manufacturing operations. However, the government authorities focused on easing the restrictions to enable supply chain operations. In response, on March 29, 2020, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security considered the sectors including agriculture, food, and transportation as critical infrastructure sectors. This helped the authorities to ensure accessibility and availability of food & agricultural products during the pandemic. Moreover, due to restrictions and the pandemic, the manufacturing facilities were closed. This also impacted the production of logging trailers across the world, affecting the logging trailers market growth.

North America is expected to lead the global logging trailers market over the forecast period.

Statistics:

North America held a dominant position in the global logging trailers market in 2021 accounting for 31.2% share, in terms of value.

Logging Trailers  | Coherent Market Insights

North America is expected to hold a dominant position in the global logging trailers market during the forecast period due to the extensive number of manufacturers and distributors spread across the U.S. and Canada. The region is witnessing significant technology developments contributing to the logging trailers market growth. For instance, in September 2021, FPInnovations, a non-profit organization focusing on the forest sector in Canada, announced the initiation of Hybrid Trailer Project. Through this, the organization planned to replace traditional axels of logging trailers with the drive axle supported by the power from electric motors. This integration will help in enabling a parallel hybrid configuration for logging trailers connected with tractors/trucks. Similar developments along with favorable government initiatives to focus on electric mobility solutions is expected to support the logging trailers market growth in the region.

Europe market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to region-wide presence of multiple logging trailer providers. In addition, in Europe, logging trailers and trucks are primarily used for timber haulage. For instance, according to the statistics from Forest Research, the UK Forestry Commission’s (FC) UK Wood Production and Trade Report 2022, in 2021, approximately 6.3 million tons of roundwood were delivered to sawmills, a rise of 7% compared to the previous year. Considering these figures, the need for logging trailers & trucks is anticipated to witness a significant rise in the region.
