Heavy Duty Truck Engine Platform Strategies : By 2022 Over Half of All Heavy-Duty Trucks Sold Globally to Feature Engines with Platform-based Lineage

There is a paradigm shift in the production of heavy-duty trucks across all markets, with platform-based production and modularity emerging as key enablers for profitability. Horizontal deployment of technology and cost benefits across the value chain (research and development, procurement, and manufacturing) will become a global phenomenon in the commercial vehicle market. The study captures the key emerging trends in the global heavy duty truck engine market with an emphasis on platform development strategies of different OEMs across different regions. Additionally, regional focus, highlighting platform-based production penetration and shift in weighted average displacement, has been captured.
