Rising Demand from End-Users is Driving the Market Growth


The market for heavy duty truck manufacturing is expanding as a result of an increase in demand for heavy trucks from end customers in the construction, mining, and other industries. Leading truck manufacturers' executives claim that a rise in construction activity increased demand for heavy vehicles like tipper trucks and concrete mixers. Additionally, the American Trucking Association estimated that the trucking sector will generate $ 875.5 billion in sales in 2021. There were over 4.06 million Class 8 trucks in use in June 2021, a 2.3% increase from 2020. The market for heavy duty trucks is anticipated to expand over the forecast period due to an increase in end-user demand.


Heavy-duty vehicles are capable of hauling a lot of goods. No matter the size of the trailer, it increases carrying capacity because every square inch from floor to ceiling can be used. Thus, using heavy-duty trucks to transport goods and commodities including perishable groceries, building supplies, bulky loads, and loose materials is a cost-effective solution. Due to the benefits of transporting several automobiles from one area to another, the popularity of heavy-duty trucks with multi-car trailers, such as single-decker and double-decker trailers, is also steadily expanding in the automotive sector. For instance, the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highway (India) permitted trailers and rigid trucks to have a maximum of three decks in February 2022 in order to transport two-wheelers. Similar to this, the Indian government increased commercial vehicles' load carrying capability by 20–25%. The change aims to bring regulations in line with worldwide standards and will help save logistical costs by 2%. Therefore, during the projected period, such factors are anticipated to fuel the expansion of the heavy-duty truck market.


New developments in the heavy duty truck industry include vehicles with cutting-edge driver-assistance systems and safety measures. The Collision Mitigation System (CMS) and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) are examples of advanced driver-assistive technologies that aim to lessen traffic accidents and improve vehicle safety. For instance, Tata Motors, an Indian commercial vehicle manufacturer, introduced a cutting-edge, ADAS including collision mitigation system, lane departure warning system, and driver monitoring system in its best-selling range of trucks including Prima, Signa, and Ultra trucks in 2022. This system was designed to improve driving comfort. Tata Motors also introduced India's first CNG-powered heavy duty truck. Thus, driving the heavy duty trucks market revenue.
