Background to this research

Commercial-vehicle manufacturers around the world face a complex set of challenges that together add up to mounting pressure on their profit margins. Companies are grappling with the impact of the double-dip recession in Europe, with intensifying competition from emerging-market players, with the increased commoditisation of their product, and with ever-tightening environmental regulations. Moreover, the major market trends shaping the industry vary markedly across geographic regions, thereby adding to the complexity confronting industry players.
However, even though the outlook for 2014 and beyond may initially look challenging, OEMs and suppliers have several opportunities to improve performance, including crafting strategies that might lead to volume growth in emerging markets, optimising costs, managing the supply chain more strategically, and making the right investments in emissions and fuel efficiency improvement.
In volume terms, capacity management remains the single most challenging issue for many OEMs. Having reached record levels in 2011, global demand for regional and heavy commercial trucks softened in 2012 before experiencing a small rebound in 2013. This was held back in Europe, where the economic issues surrounding the Euro crisis had a deep effect on real economic activity. Asia, South America and North America, however, showed some strong growth, but not to the same levels as previously.
