Commercial Vehicle Market to Rise at 8.7% CAGR from 2022 to 2029; Daimler Truck Announced the Launch of eEconic Electric Truck to Boost Electrification Portfolio

July 14, 2022 | Automotive & Transportation

The global commercial vehicle market size will rise from USD 955.57 billion in 2022 to USD 1,712.44 billion by 2029. Automakers and OEMs have upped investments in the expansion and adoption of advanced technologies. Amidst rising air pollution, manufacturers are expected to shift toward sustainable energy. Governments have implemented rigorous regulations to minimize increasing emissions.

According to the latest research report by Fortune Business Insights™ titled, Commercial Vehicle Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Vehicle Type (Light Commercial Vehicle, Heavy Vehicle, and Buses), By Fuel Type (I.C. Engine, EV), and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029,” the market was valued at USD 821.28 billion in 2021. It is expected to witness 8.7% CAGR during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Pandemic-led Semiconductor Shortage Dented Growth Prospect

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic prompted supply chain disruptions and a plunge in the production and sales of auto vehicles. Moreover, the potential shortage of semiconductors jolted the automotive industry. To illustrate, General Motors was reported to have temporarily halted the production in March 2020 while Toyota announced its plan to reduce annual production by 40% in 2021, largely due to a semiconductor shortage. The trend led several governments to emphasize long-term plans to minimize the dependency on semiconductor chip manufacturers in the Asia Pacific.

Viaduct Joined Hands with Paccar to Leverage Connected Data

Leading companies have upped investments in the automotive sector amidst prevailing challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic and complexities in operating advanced systems. Major players are expected to prioritize telematics and AI to streamline services. For instance, Viaduct teamed up with Paccar to leverage connected vehicle data. The collaboration could integrate the latter’s diagnostics, telematics, and repair data pipelines with the former’s analytics platform and connected vehicle data. The commercial vehicle market share will gain impetus from investments in organic and inorganic strategies.
