"Market Intelligence for High-Geared Performance"
The global connected truck market size was valued at USD 17.90 billion in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 20.45 billion in 2021 to USD 58.90 billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 16.3% during the forecast period. The market is surging due to increasing demand for real-time fleet management, safety, and efficiency. Advancements in IoT, telematics, and data analytics, coupled with regulatory mandates to drive market growth.
The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with connected trucks witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. According to our findings, the global market will decline by -4.96% in 2020, compared to the average year-on-year growth from 2017 to 2019. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.
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 efficiently manage logistics and transportation activities. 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.
Decline in Automotive Production and Vehicle Sales to Hamper Growth
The pandemic of COVID-19 caused a global economic crash. Lockdowns imposed in many regions of the world to stop the virus from spreading caused supply chain delays and the temporary shutdown of many production sites.
The epidemic of COVID-19 has a significant impact on the demand for connected trucks. Due to worldwide shutdown prohibitions, new vehicle manufacture and sales, including these type of trucks, have been halted. Due to supply chain disruptions, the raw materials needed to manufacture various vehicle parts were unavailable, causing manufacturing delays. As a result, the manufacturing economy has experienced a rapid decline. However, the sector anticipates a revenue recovery following the COVID-19 epidemic, thanks to a growing global trend toward cleaner mobility.
Although the duration of the pandemic is difficult to predict, the launch of COVID-19 vaccines in early 2021 is projected to boost the automotive sector.

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.
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 to Hamper the Market's Growth
A lack of network infrastructure is a major stumbling block to the market's growth. While growing prices are the primary disadvantage of this industry, they negatively influence its growth. Moreover, other factors such as expensive installation costs and complicated setup have hampered the connected truck market growth. As a result, these problems are limiting the expansion of the market.
