  • In October 2020, TRATON SE planned to acquire all Avistar International Corp stakes to expand its portfolio. The aim is to focus on the development and establishment of trucks.


Market dynamics



  • Major Drivers


According to the data of Scania, the fuel consumption cost is more than 30% of the operational cost in normal European transportation operations. Even a small reduction in fuel cost can have a huge impact on the transportation sector. The use of platooning technology in the trucking industry can reduce the cost of vehicle manufacturers. Reduction in aerodynamic drag of trucks offers fuel-saving for both the trailing and to lead the Truck. Apart from that, the US Department of Energy & Transportation and the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) have shown double-digit figures while fuel saving in the platooning tests. Truck platooning can improve efficiency, reduce thefts, lower crash costs, and enhance vehicle utilization—all these factors driving the Truck Platooning market trends. 


Road safety is one of the major concerns for the transport authorities, and most road accidents occur due to the driver's fault. Human error is 90% in the case of a vehicle accident. Most truck drivers work for so many hours, and they feel drowsy, which leads to an accident. With the help of Truck platooning technology, safety will increase, and it is another driver of the market. 



  •  Opportunities


With the increasing environmental concerns, the government is taking strict initiatives. The government bodies like the US Department of Transportation have initiated new policies and rules to reduce the CO2 emission from the vehicle. Heavy vehicles are responsible for 30% of CO2 emissions. With the help of the Truck Platooning system, carbon emission can be reduced; as a result, it is generating new opportunities for the market.



  • Restraints 


One of the major restraints in the Truck Platooning market is the high cost of technologies and hardware. The platoon trucks are costly due to the involvement of commercialized technological systems in vehicles. The installation of blind-spot warning, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and other advanced features increase the overall cost of the vehicles. Apart from that, the lack of infrastructure is another restraint in the market. Truck platooning needs integrated application of IoT and great infrastructure. So lack of infrastructure hampering the market.



  •  Challenges 


The lack of awareness and knowledge has become a challenge for the market. Apart from that, underdeveloped regions have not adopted advanced technology. As a result, it has become a challenge for the market.
