Bigger Vehicles Need Bigger Paint Booths
Are you considering purchasing a new paint booth? Now might be the time to add a high roof paint booth and capture the burgeoning market for transit vans and heavy-duty pickup trucks.
The last-mile delivery networks is forecasted to grow from 9.98 billion in 2018, to $45.27 billion in 2027. In December 2019, Amazon reported a fleet of 30,000 branded vehicles and 20,000 branded trailers, and they recently signed a contract for the delivery of 100,000 more vehicles. They represent only one segment of delivery vehicles, as these numbers do not include the private owner-operated services contracted with Amazon and other online stores. It also does not include the other shippers and local delivery organizations. The numbers just keep growing.
Another vehicle segment that commands a bigger paint booth includes the heavy-duty pickup truck market. The top 3-best selling cars and trucks from 2017-2019, did not include any cars, just trucks. Within this time frame, the Ford F-Series was the number one selling vehicle, followed by Chevrolet Silverado and Dodge Ram (alternating second and third).
The COVID Pandemic did not slow the use of these vehicles on our roads, but actually increased their drive time as the last mile delivery network was on fire, while construction and service vehicles operated as essential services.
With the increase in larger vehicles are you getting your fair share of the market? Do you have the capabilities to take on a fleet or repair the vehicles in your market. It might be time to analyze whether bringing in a high roof will increase your market presence.
