Connected Truck Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Connected Truck Market according to our research experts:

Growing Demand and Use of Telematics in the Commercial Vehicle Market to Drive the Connected Truck Market

Telematics plays a significant role in developing unique solutions for efficient supply chain logistics and fleet management. Telematics provides real-time visibility and data to optimize procedures and processes, maintain product integrity, optimize shelf-life, and reduce losses and insurance risks across the supply chain.

Telematics is becoming a critical component in commercial logistics and supply chains because it addresses key challenges related to safety and regulatory compliance, driver monitoring, insurance, and infrastructure.

Telematics solutions integrate capabilities like live traffic updates, smart routing and tracking, rapid roadside assistance in case of accidents or breakdowns, automatic toll transactions, and insurance telematics. Therefore, they are critical to optimizing the operational metrics of fleets, such as fuel cost reduction, resource optimization, and real-time connectivity.

The growing e-commerce sector, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and the increase in online shopping, also significantly contributed to the growing demand for connected trucks. According to some estimates e-commerce industry in 2021 reached total sales of USD 5.2 trillion, posting a Y-o-Y increase of 22.66% over 2020. Many e-commerce companies have in-house logistics operations and are ordering large fleets of connected trucks. This enables them to monitor connected trucks remotely for the purposes of safety, fleet performance, fuel efficiency, the behavior of drivers, and predictive maintenance.

For instance,

  • In October 2022, Amazon announced it to invest EUR 1 billion in electric vans, trucks, and low-emission package hubs across Europe, over the next five years. These vehicles also feature next-generation connected technologies like telematics. The company aims to increase its fleet of electric and connected vans from 3000 to 10000. The company also plans to deploy 1500 heavy-duty electric trucks in Europe for middle-mile deliveries.
  • In November 2021, Amazon ordered 1064 natural gas-powered trucks S WAY from Iveco, a subsidiary of CNH Industrial. The trucks are used in Europe and are pre-installed with IVECO Driver Pal, an onboard connectivity system featuring integrated voice recognition capabilities from Amazon Alexa.

Companies are spending huge amounts of money on making telematics technology more advanced and integrating telematics devices in commercial vehicles. For instance,

  • In March 2022, Navistar installed a telematics device as standard on all new builds of the complete Class 6-8 International Truck and IC Bus vehicle product portfolios, including electric models.
  • In January 2022, Scania AB, the Swedish commercial manufacturer which is a part of Traton SE, the commercial vehicle subsidiary of Volkswagen SE, selected global navigations company HERE Technologies to implement HERE ISA Map solution in the infotainment systems of its next-generation vehicles to comply with the new EU law, which has made it mandatory for all the commercial vehicles sold in Europe to be fitted with intelligent speed assistant solutions.

The automotive industry is projected to see an increase in the adoption of connected trucks due to technological advancements in the automotive industry. Connected trucks are expected to play a significant role in the development of autonomous trucks, thereby providing opportunities for automotive manufacturers, even though the limited network infrastructure is expected to be a significant factor that is likely to hinder the connected truck market over the next few years.

For instance,

  • In October 2022, IKEA teamed up with autonomous truck startup Kodiak Robotics to test and deploy autonomous trucks for IKEA's deliveries in Dallas, Texas, and the United States.

Based on all the above factors, the growing usage of telematics and the large fleet orders from e-commerce companies are expected to drive the growth of the connected trucks market over the next five years.

Geographically, Europe and North America hold the major shares of the connected truck market, owing to the expansion of the automotive sector in these regions, leading to an increase in the number of connected trucks.

Connected trucks in the developed regions are anticipated to register significant growth over the next five years due to higher adoption rates and improved infrastructure. Awareness of safety while driving and government safety regulations are empowering the automotive industry, thereby driving the connected truck market in these regions during the forecast period. Major telecom companies across North America are partnering with leading connected truck companies truck to expand their product portfolios. For instance,

  • In October 2022, Drivewyze, the leader in connected truck services and operator of the largest public-private weigh station bypass network in North America, partnered with telecom major Verizon Connect to provide Verizon Connect Reveal customers with integrated access to Drivewyze weigh station bypass and Drivewyze Safety+ services.

The demand for connected trucks in Asia-Pacific is anticipated to grow rapidly over the next five years as OEMs and technology manufacturers are developing various connected vehicle solutions, owing to the increase in the use of telematics and fleet management solutions for connected commercial vehicles in the region.

The Chinese government is focusing on several advanced vehicles technology, like ADAS features, along with electric mobility. With that, major automakers in the country are updating their portfolio with the introduction of the new level 2 and level 3 ADAS features.

For instance,

  • In July 2022, the Dongfeng Chenglong H5 received the license for its first heavy-duty autonomous truck in China. The Chenglong H5’s remote driving system runs on China Mobile's 5G network.

Initiatives toward the predictive technology sector, such as implementing telematics and advanced driver assistance system in light and heavy commercial vehicles, are likely to contribute to the growth of the market over the next five years.
