The report provides comprehensive insights into the overall, near term Strategy Focus, Key Strategies & Plans and Strategic Priorities for PACCAR Inc. against the backdrop of an evolving & emerging industry landscape with the global trucking industry facing headwinds of-late with slowing down of the world economy and stalling of economic recovery in the EU impacting demand for medium & heavy duty truck segment significantly. Continued demand growth for Class 6-8 in the North American Truck market, driven by continued freight demand & construction activity, has been the key & sole growth driver for the global trucking industry of-late with emerging markets, too, facing economic issues & challenges.
The stalling of the EU economic recovery started impeding activity & demand in the EU market in Q3 2014 with fears of further escalation of Ukraine crisis and the likely impact on Russian energy exports to Europe dampening business confidence & economic activity across EU. The EU truck market for medium & heavy trucks, thus, is projected to stay flat over near term. BRIC markets, too, have been grappling with their unique set of challenges & issues, spearheaded by China, which is projected to slow down with the pursuit of structural reforms impacting economic growth significantly & driving deceleration of growth momentum which is likely to persist through 2015 with the GDP growth forecast for China pegged to slow down to 6.9% by 2016. India, on the contrary, has been pacing up well with respect to economic reforms, deregulation & stronger policy focus on growth being on priority with GDP growth projected to pace up to 6.6% in 2016 as against estimates of 5.4% for 2014 with increased focus & allocation towards infrastructure development likely over near term. Economic growth in Brazil remains sluggish while Russia faces western sanctions over the Ukraine crisis, which has impacted economic growth severely.
North America, thus, remains as the sole growth driver for the trucking industry with continued freight demand & improvement in construction activity which is likely to see a further increase over near term with strong & high double digit growth projections for housing starts for 2015 besides likely investments towards infrastructure repair. The North American medium & heavy truck market, thus, is projected to witness moderate growth over near term with the focus, stance & timing of fiscal & monetary policy interventions in the U.S. likely to be crucial for the industry over near term.
