Autonomous Trucks Market Overview

Autonomous truck market share is expected to grow at a 15.6% CAGR

The autonomous trucks market helps in fulfilling the needs related to electrically used vehicles. These vehicles make use of different kinds of techniques that help in enabling them to understand the surroundings, as well as, conduct the navigation process that is related to any kind of human input. The autonomous trucks majorly draw their dependence on satellites, ground sensors, as well as, the guided systems. The systems function to identify the obstacles, along with the relevant signage to push for proper navigation of the truck locations and reducing any chances of damage.

Owing to a variety of factors like increase in the number of road accidents, shortage in the number of drivers, changing government regulations guarding the safety measures, efficient features in different truck models, as well as, the key market players eyeing on elaborating their services in the form of reducing the transportation and delivery costs, are driving the market towards growth on a global scale. The autonomous truck market share is expected to grow at a 15.6% CAGR by the end of the global period in 2023. The market valuation is expected to read USD 460 million.

COVID 19 Analysis

The COVID 19 pandemic is contagious. The spread is quick and patients belong to both symptomatic, as well as, asymptomatic categories. Hence, to ensure that the spread of the pandemic is contained, the government imposed lockdowns in regions, national, and international locations. The ban on interstate travel forced people to sit at homes and not continue any kind of business operations. Hence, the market was unable to register a considerable amount of growth during the pandemic year of 2020. To overcome the losses, the business was quick to resume its transportation services and make use of trucks to cover long distances.

The government laid down guidelines to accomplish the deliverables through the help of the movement of trucks from one place to the other. The drivers of transportation services like trucks are following the safety and health protocols on priority and helping the business resume its operations slowly as the restrictions are being lifted. We just hope that things will be back to  business soon.

Market Dynamics


It is observed that the autonomous truck market is expected to rise owing to the rise in shortage of truck drivers, as well as, the increase in the quantum of supply of raw materials and goods to various end-users of the market. The American Truck Association discusses that in the historic year of 2016, there was a decline in the availability of the drivers in the market, but, it increased subsequently, in the following year of 2017. There is a growth in the shipment volume that is likely to estimate the quantum of the autonomous truck sales. All these factors are well collaborating the market for considerable growth by the end of the future forecast in 2023.


The labor cost associated with the availability of drivers and their services is likely to emerge as a restraint in the way of growth. The market is witnessing an increased requirement of use of fuel efficiency, along with stricter regulations for bad fuel emission, the market has restraints to overcome while registering a good market growth.
