Global Commercial Vehicle Market Analysis

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.

Leading vendors currently operating in the global heavy truck market include Daimler, Dongfeng, China National Heavy Duty Truck Group, and China First Automobile Works.
