Summary of Key Findings

Market Size 2014–2022

The semi-trailer original equipment (OE) wheel-end components market is mature. Total market unit shipments in 2014 were ~ million, contributing to ~$ million in total revenue. Unit shipments are expected to decline to ~ million, and revenue to ~$ million, by 2022.


Tier I suppliers are facing pricing pressures from consumers who are increasingly demanding low-cost wheel-end component options (typically $ to $ less) as total cost of operations (TCO) concerns continue to mount, and from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as vertical integration strategies are being implemented.


The market is experiencing intense competition from domestic and offshore competitors. A value components market has opened up in North America and has the potential to disrupt the market.

Regulatory Environment

Stronger government regulations for stopping distance are driving technological improvements for brakes and will be a factor in air disc brake (ADB) technology's slight growth and the proliferation of larger drum brakes.
