The main reason for the higher revenue share of the region is the high demand for military transportation systems from the US. The US is currently increasing its military troops. As per the Defense Department 2021 budget request, the U.S. military is set to grow by about 5,600 troops across the services in the active and reserve components in the coming future. With this, the necessity of logistics and troop transportation is also expected to increase, which will drive the market for military trucks during the forecast period.
