FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (Sept. 13, 2023) — NTEA – The Work Truck Association released the 24th edition of Annual Manufacturers’ Shipments Survey (AMSS) Report, which enables the commercial vehicle industry to estimate market size by dollars and units for 54 product lines. NTEA collects and evaluates aggregate results based on data submitted from 84 participating companies. The resulting report offers directional guidance to help industry manufacturers and distributors assess business performance.

Featuring 2022 data, the latest AMSS report indicates the 2022 value of shipments increased 8.9% as compared to 2021. Shipments rose 16.2% in 2021. Consistent with historic results is significant variation in product line growth rates. In unit terms, many product lines registered declines relative to 2021, and some remained down from 2017. In total, though, units were nearly level with 2017. This is reflective of data chassis sales data from NTEA’s Monthly OEM Statistics Program.

“AMSS report data offers commercial vehicle industry companies key insights to support their strategic business planning efforts,” said Steve Latin-Kasper, NTEA senior director of market data and research. “It’s an important resource that can help empower businesses to make informed decisions.”
