From enabling commercial transport between cities, states, and national borders, commercial vehicles support business, commercial, and trade activity. The growth in the market is reliant on the level of transportation and logistics activity, which in turn is dependent on economic growth and health of commercial, business, and industrial activity. Government spending on infrastructure projects like power generation, road construction, mining, mega and smart cities, will also help drive demand for a range of commercial vehicles used for transportation.

The commercial vehicles (CVs) market is influenced by a medley of factors including capital investments in the manufacturing industry, technology, price, competition and regulations. Factors such as production capacity, demand and supply dynamics and industry rationalization strategies also influence sales and manufacturer prospects in this market. Changing societal priorities, against a backdrop of new environmental and economic realities drives the automotive industry’s current transition both in terms of design and manufacturing. Stricter regulations surrounding environmental and occupant protection is stimulating technology transformation in this industry. Fuel-efficient vehicles, sophisticated safety features such as driver assistance systems, and stability control, and intelligent navigation technologies, are all poised to remain focal areas in the future.

Increase in fuel and energy prices coupled with rising customer eco-awareness will fuel innovation of low-emission and fuel efficient green vehicles. Low carbon emission laws will also help OEMs focus on developing environment friendly vehicles that consume lesser fuel and emit lower emissions. Innovations in technology such as Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), Compression Ignition Technology and Telematics, which improve the efficiency of CVs will help drive long-term growth. Hybrid and electric trucks are expected to grow in popularity as a result of government incentives, and functional improvements in the design of electric motors and hybrid engines.
