Global Heavy Truck & Bus Industry

 

As part of the global automotive manufacturing industry, medium and heavy trucks represented a $180 billion industry in 2010. MarketLine forecasts strong growth in this sector, bringing the industry to almost $293 billion in 2015. Trucks produced by this industry involve trucks used by freight companies. Companies operating in this sector assemble buses, trucks, and special purpose heavy-duty motor vehicles for use on highways including firefighting trucks. They also manufacture truck and bus chassis.

 

The global trucking sector lies at the intersection of various industries involved in the production, transportation and distribution of goods. Players operating in the trucking industry have diversified their services, making the transition from goods transportation from source to end-point.

 

TechNavio predicts the global heavy truck market will witness 5% yearly growth between 2011 and 2015. Market growth will be fuelled by expansion in the global transportation market. Heavy truck demand from BRIC nations continues to grow on the back of strong economic growth in these regions. Cost of ownership represents one significant obstacle to market growth. Leading vendors currently operating in the global heavy truck market include Daimler, Dongfeng, China National Heavy Duty Truck Group, and China First Automobile Works.

Customer service is a key factor, providing trucking companies with an effective way of setting themselves apart from the competition.

Market Outlook

 

The global trucking sector has seen growth negatively affected by the economic recession. It has been more adversely affected than the railroad industry, reports Global Industry Analysts. The reason for this is because the railroad industry is more involved in the transportation of non-cyclical commodities, including agricultural products and coal, products which were not impacted by the economic recession.

 

Rising levels of manufacturing activity will fuel growth in the global trucking industry. In addition, China is witnessing an increasing degree of unit freight mileage, which in turn is driving demand for high-end trucks widely used for long-distance transportation.

 

Increasing diesel fuel taxes will expand demand for fuel-efficient vehicles while demand for highly fuel-efficient heavy-duty trucks with improved emission control systems will also continue to climb.
