Key Market Trends

Demand for Hybrid and Electric Heavy-duty Trucks to Increase

The high market growth in the hybrid electric segment will be driven by the stringent emission norms established by the governments. The European Commission (EC) is also developing new software solutions to determine fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

In response to these policy changes across North America and Europe, the market players are introducing new models of hybrid electric and fully electric heavy-duty trucks. For instance, in October 2019, Volvo introduced two new models of electric trucks, Volvo FL and Volvo FE Electric. These models are expected to have a significant and positive effect on the air quality in cities with many ongoing construction projects.

Companies, such as mining and e-commerce, face the daily challenge of meeting the customers' deadlines. Due to the competition among these companies, early delivery has become a cutting-edge strategy to maintain a good position in the market. Due to the rapid increase in the demand for early deliveries and short-term deliveries for raw materials, the heavy-duty trucks market grew tremendously, and it is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.
