Truck Platooning Market Analysis

The Truck Platooning Market size is estimated at USD 0.66 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 1.79 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 22.25% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Over the long term, the rise in the number of road accidents due to driver errors and increasing focus on reducing transportation operating costs are expected to fuel the demand in the truck platooning market. Truck platooning is expected to increase the demand in sectors such as road development, transportation, logistics, and information technology because of the rise in demand for automated technologies. The rising adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) is another factor that will help the growth of the market over the forecast period. Moreover, governments worldwide are strategizing to implement guidelines to regulate the truck platooning industry, which is expected to positively contribute to the growth of the truck platooning market.

  • Indiana and New York authorities in the United States proposed legislation to regulate the truck platooning industry. Indiana law authorizes automated vehicle platooning to operate “at speeds and following distances that are faster and closer than would be reasonable and prudent without electronic coordination.”. The New York state law has no requirements for large vehicles to have a human in the cab capable of taking control of the vehicle in case of emergency.

The market faces challenges due to the high costs associated with the adoption and implementation of the currently available technology. Truck platooning is a costly affair especially due to the high-end communication technology and infrastructure that are required to sustain this industry. However, the market is expected to witness steady growth due to the aggressive focus by the government to lower carbon emissions by reducing air-drag friction. 

North America is expected to lead the truck platooning market globally, owing to the rapidly evolving autonomous vehicle technology and the growing concerns over safety in road transportation in the region. The European market is also projected to account for a significant revenue share in the truck platooning market, becoming the fastest-growing market during the forecast period.

Truck Platooning Market Trends

Adaptive Cruise Control Segment to Gain Traction during the Forecast Period

Adaptive cruise control (ACC) is projected to be the fastest-growing segment of the truck platooning market. Cruise control automatically assists in maintaining an optimal truck speed without manual intervention, which, in turn, positively impacts the growth of this segment. Various project initiatives by Soft Bank and authorities in Canada, among others, are being lined up to test the efficacy of truck platooning technology. Both government authorities and private players are investing hefty sums to implement truck platooning in their countries, contributing to the surging demand for adaptive cruise control.

Moreover, the growing number of traffic fatalities due to human error are being detected worldwide, leading to authorities implementing strict rules and regulations. The recent advancements in truck platooning technology are assisting in automating the cargo transportation process in the logistics industry, leading to little tominorvolvement of drivers, thus limiting the impact of human errors. Truck platooning technology enables truck movement through V2V infrastructure and other advanced technologies, such as Adaptive Cruise Control. Therefore, the entire process assists in minimizing any fatalities arising from human error.

  • According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the number of road traffic fatalities in Germany stood at 2,788 2022 compared to 2,562 in 2021, representing a Y-o-Y growth of 8.8% between 2021 and 2022. Similarly, the number of road traffic fatalities in Greece touched 640 in 2022 compared to 624 in 2021.
  • According to the Indian Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, the number of deaths due to road accidents touched 168.49 thousand in 2022 compared to 153.97 thousand in 2021, recording a Y-o-Y growth of 9.4% between 2021 and 2022.

With the rapid enhancement in autonomous truck platooning technology, which does not require driver intervention, technological solutions such as adaptive cruise control have become necessary for its incorporation in these vehicles. Since there is a requirement to maintain an optimal distance between manned trucks and lead trucks, automakers are widely preferring the the integration of adaptive cruise control technologies, which is expected to foster the growth of this segment in the coming years.

Europe is Expected to become the Fastest Growing Market during the Forecast Period

Developed regions, like Europe, are heavily investing in truck platooning technology to enhance the cargo transportation movement and help reduce turn-around time in the logistics industry. The European Commission is launching several projects, such as the SARTRE Project (Safe Road Trains for the Environment), to investigate the role of platooning technology in reducing traffic jams and revolutionizing the logistics industry. Although the truck platooning market is still in its nascent phase, with several truck manufacturers, such as Volvo, increasingly preferring to develop truck platooning technology to participate in pilot technology, the European market is expected to showcase rapid growth in the coming years.

Further, rapid technological advancement coupled with the increasing investment by central government authorities and private players, among others, to deploy platooning solutions in the European region is fostering the demand for this segment. Furthermore, the stringent government regulations and rules implemented to decarbonize the transportation sector have also led to advancements in truck platooning technology. Advancements in IoT, V2V infrastructure, and the shifting preference towards automated transportation solutions are further contributing to the surging growth of this segment. 

  • The European Parliament adopted the European Climate Law, raising the European Union's target of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 and legally achieving climate neutrality by 2050.
  • Further, according to the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), truck platooning helps reduce 16% of Co2 emissions from trailing vehicles while ensuring the reduction of 8% of Co2 emissions from lead vehicles.

Although truck platooning is being majorly adopted in developed European regions, countries such as Canada and the United States in North America are also actively focusing on implementing this solution. Research and investment in truck platooning technology in Asian countries are still nascent. The growing road freight sector, coupled with the increasing cross-border trade activity, is further expected to contribute to the surging growth of the truck platooning market in the European region during the forecast period.
