Market Overview

The global medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.46%, during the forecast period, 2019-2024.
  • Some of the major factors driving the growth of the market are the expansion of industrial sectors in the emerging market, growing demand from the logistics industry, rising demand from construction sector (owing to growing construction activities). The market is expected to witness growth in the coming years, owing to growing economies across both developing and developed counties.
  • Owing to consistent technological advancements and enactment of stringent emission norms, automakers (OEMs) are shifting there focus towards electric vehicles. Most of the automakers have already started launching new electric commercial vehicles in the market. For instance,
  • In April 2018, Volvo Trucks introduced its first all-electric commercial truck, the FL Electric model, and plans to launch them commercially in Europe by 2019.
  • Additionally, there are many other players in the automotive industry that are continuously focusing on electrification of commercial vehicles. Therefore, the electric medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles are expected to see a potential market growth during the forecast period.
Scope of the Report

Trucks, Buses, and Coaches that weigh from 3.5 tonnes and above are categorized into medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles and have been considered in the scope of the report.

The global medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicles market have been segmented by tonnage type, drive type, and geography.

Key Market Trends

Electric Commercial Vehicle to Witness Faster Growth

Across the globe, some of the countries have banned old commercial vehicles running on public roads to tackle the growing levels of vehicle emissions. For instance,
  • The ban on old vehicles in France started with commercial vehicles in 2016 and was then extended to cars from 2017. Commercial vehicles that are registered before 1997 are not allowed to run in the Low Emission Zone areas, in cities like Paris.
Above such laws have been gradually impacting freight businesses across the globe.

Thus, the possibility of freight businesses, adopting new commercial vehicles that are eco-friendly, cost-effective, and align with the emission standards, will increase at the global level during the forecast period.

Analyzing the above situation and growing vehicle emission standards, the automakers continue to invest in R&D activities and plans to successfully develop and launch more electric commercial vehicles during the forecast period. For instance,
  • Renault Trucks, after ten years of experimentation of its all-electric truck, are in operating conditions with its customer-partners.
  • In 2018, it has unveiled three electric vehicles namely, the Renault Master Z.E, Renault Trucks D Wide Z.E, and Renault Trucks D Z.E, a complete range from 3.5 to 26 metric ton ideally suited for use in the cities of France.
  • Truck Models D and D Wide Z.E will be manufactured in the Renault Truck plant at Blainville-sur-Orne and the company is planning to launch it commercially in 2019. In 2018, Renault launches a light commercial vehicle model Master Z.E.
Thus, the above-mentioned developments, are likely to propel more sales of electric commercial vehicles during the forecast period.

Furthermore, government incentive and subsidies, along with structural & functional improvements in design drives the sales of hybrid and electric trucks.

Asia-Pacific Continues to Capture Major Market Share

Among Asia-Pacific countries, China has been dominating the heavy-duty commercial vehicle segment. Four out of ten heavy-duty commercial vehicles are sold in China. In 2018, China recorded 1.14 million unit sales of heavy-duty trucks, witnessing a growth of 3%, when compared to that of 2017.

Government policies and initiatives are also expected to propel the growth of the market. For instance, the potential demand created by the “One Belt One Road” policy will continue to drive the sales for commercial vehicles in the country. Additionally, with the growing e-commerce sector, the logistics industry has been continually increasing, which in turn is propelling the demand for commercial vehicles.

The technology upgrades required by the State VI emission standards (may increase vehicle manufacturing costs), as a result, there is an anticipation of buying rush, before the implementation of new standards in 2021.

A new regulation GB1589 in China is proposed to enhance road safety, which focuses on reducing the capacity of the freight loaded (overloading) on the car carrier trucks. The above regulation is expected to further boost the sales of trucks during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the major players such as Daimler AG, Volvo, Paccar, Man, etc., have captured significant market shares. With the continuous technological advancements and enactment of stringent emission standards, major players have been investing in the latest trends in the automotive industry to sustain their market position. For instance,
  • Daimler Trucks is planning to invest a total of more than EUR 2.5 billion in R&D during 2018-2019, to focus on the on-going trends of the automotive industry such as e-mobility, connectivity, and automated commercial vehicle technology.
