The global connected truck market size stood at USD 26.39 billion in 2023. The market is anticipated to rise from USD 30.53 billion in 2024 to USD 115.30 billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 18.1% during the projected period.

A connected truck is equipped with various sensors and modern technologies, such as a fleet management system (FMS) and an advanced driver assist system (ADAS), which display vehicle improvements, driver-support systems, fuel management, and other information on the screen. Connectivity aids in the direction of their fleets and decreases vehicle downtime. One of the main causes of demand is the growing preference for effective transportation services worldwide. Connected truck technology and electrification are two of the most important trends transforming the trucking industry. Rising digitalization and integration of advanced technologies in the trucking industry are expected to fuel the demand for smart trucks during the forecast period.

Through internet connectivity, smart trucks interact and share data with other vehicles, increasing road safety and productivity. Moreover, these trucks can be easily tracked, with access to real-time insights into their operating condition, allowing the owner to manage logistics and transportation activities efficiently. Also, changing government road safety standards increases the demand for smart trucks in the logistics and transportation sectors. For instance, the European Union adopted new norms and regulations in March 2019 to implement Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) on European roads. C-ITS deployment will allow vehicles to communicate with other vehicles, road infrastructure, and other road users for safer road transport.

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the global connected truck market by accelerating the adoption of digital technologies and remote connectivity solutions. Lockdown measures and supply chain disruptions highlighted the importance of real-time monitoring and data analytics for fleet management. As a result, there is an increased demand for connected truck solutions that enable fleet operators to optimize logistics, improve driver safety, and enhance operational efficiency in the post-pandemic recovery phase.

Connected Truck Market Trends

Growing Demand and Use of Telematics in Commercial Vehicle Market to Foster Market Development

Telematics plays a vital role in developing unique solutions for efficient supply chain logistics and fleet management. Telematics offers transparency and real-time data to optimize procedures and processes, maintain product integrity, optimize shelf life, and reduce losses and insurance risks throughout the supply chain. Telematics is becoming a critical component in business logistics and supply chains as it addresses the vital challenges of security and regulatory compliance, driver monitoring, insurance, and infrastructure.

Live traffic updates, intelligent routing and tracking, fast roadside assistance in accidents or breakdowns, automated toll transactions, and insurance telematics are all examples of telematics solutions. As a result, they are crucial for improving fleet operating key performance metrics, including fuel cost reduction, resource optimization, and real-time connectivity. Companies are investing a considerable amount of money in enhancing telematics technology. For instance, Tech Mahindra has already developed a solution in the past few years with a compelling ecosystem of Machine-to-Machine (M2M) partners, significant experience in industry verticals, excellent technical capabilities, and reusable platforms used for deployment in logistics, automobiles, asset tracking, & other industries. Similarly, in June 2020, Ford Commercial Solutions introduced Ford Telematics, a web-based software platform and subscription service that provides fleet managers access to connected vehicles’ data. Such players’ active involvement with lead the market growth.

Connected Truck Market Growth Factors

Low Operational Cost and Rising Demand for Advanced Technologies to Set a Positive Trend for Market Growth

Fleets that use telematics have experienced an increase in productivity. Fleets without access to telematics data to enhance efficiency might spend up to 12% more on labor. Based on vehicle usage data, a smart telematics system provides a thorough productivity study of the whole fleet, allowing managers to determine whether the employees are spending their time effectively or not. Fuel expenses are a significant portion of the company budget. While the company may not control the fuel price, one may optimize the drivers’ routes to decrease fuel use by adopting GPS monitoring or engine usage data. Furthermore, in June 2021, IVECO unveiled the IVECO S-Way, a 100% connected vehicle mainly built to increase efficiency and exceptional value to fleet owners.

The connected truck market is being driven by an increase in demand for technologically advanced systems in heavy trucks. Lane keeps assist system (LKAS), blind spot detection (BSD), lane departure warning LDW, and emergency brake assist (EBA) are among the elements of the smart truck that ensure the safety of drivers, pedestrians, and other vehicles. This is creating a demand for this type of trucks. The market is also driven by government regulations on worldwide safety concerns for heavy commercial vehicles. As a result, this market is expected to witness growth during the forecast period.


Limited Network Infrastructure with Lack of Data Security and Privacy to Hamper the Market Growth   

The proliferation of connected devices and digital platforms within the trucking industry has raised concerns about the vulnerability of sensitive data to cyber threats and unauthorized access. According to cybersecurity reports, there has been a significant increase in cyberattacks targeting connected vehicles and fleet management systems, with sophisticated tactics, such as ransomware attacks and data breaches, becoming more prevalent.

The potential consequences of a cyber incident in the connected trucking sector are profound, ranging from financial losses and operational disruptions to compromised driver safety and reputational damage for trucking companies. Moreover, stringent data protection regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the U.S., impose additional compliance requirements and penalties for organizations handling personal data.

Addressing these challenges requires comprehensive cybersecurity measures, including robust encryption protocols, intrusion detection systems, and regular security audits to safeguard connected trucking systems and data assets. Failure to adequately address cybersecurity risks may hinder the widespread adoption of connected truck solutions and undermine the potential benefits of digital transformation in the trucking industry. 

Connected Truck Market Segmentation Analysis

By Communication Type Analysis

Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) Segment to Dominate Market as Technology Helps Vehicles Creating On-The-Go Wireless Networks

Depending on the type of communication, the market is bifurcated into Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle to Cloud (V2C), and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I).

The V2V segment led the market, in 2023. This technology enables vehicles to create ad-hoc wireless networks on the go and transfer data through an ad-hoc mesh network. Through V2V communication, each vehicle transmits traffic and road conditions, vehicle position and speed, route direction, and loss of stability and brakes. Several companies, including Tesla, Toyota, and others, have made significant investments in vehicle-to-vehicle communication research & development. According to Toyota research, V2V technology can minimize accidents by 70% to 80%. Furthermore, this technology significantly influences traffic congestion and carbon emissions.

The V2C segment is expected to occupy the second-largest position in the market over the projected period. The increasing need for advanced infotainment systems and the need for advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS), telematics, & in-car networking are expected to boost the use of V2C services.

In 2023, demand for V2I was moderate; however, it is predicted to gain momentum and increase at the quickest CAGR throughout the projection period. The segment would show lucrative opportunities shortly due to government spending on the development of digital road infrastructure and stringent government rules related to road safety. Hence, it will help to boost the V2I segment
