The North American Class 6-8 Truck market has been cruising steadily amid strong transport activity marked by high freight volumes as well as rates and robust fleet utilization levels across operators while the demand for trucks and order backlogs have been surging in a predominantly supply side led market scenario.

The industry OEMs have been looking to increase production rates to meet surging demand levels, with the book-to-bill ratios hovering around 1, while battling continued supply chain disruptions & constraints, component shortages, rising input costs and an increasingly uncertain global macroeconomic environment marked by inflationary pressures, rising interest rates & tectonic geopolitical shifts.

The trucking industry's ongoing transition towards de-carbonization, led by the mass production of battery electric & hydrogen fuel cell based trucks, is the overarching theme and is likely to gain further momentum going forward.

Most key industry OEMs are now transitioning towards series production of Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) while also collaborating amongst each other and with domain specialists for development of the requisite ecosystem for transition towards sustainability.

Additionally, automation, electrification and further evolution of connectivity based service models remain key areas of focus for the truck manufacturers

The high average age of in-service truck fleets across most markets owing to production capacity constraints over the recent years, rapid energy transition towards de-carbonization and strong construction activity with continued infrastructure investments are likely to collectively provide significant growth opportunities to the industry over near to medium term in form of fleet replacements, expansion & recapitalizations, especially, in a volatile & uncertain crude oil price environment. That's despite projections for the slowdown of the world economy over near term owing to market hadwinds, supply chain disruptions, ongoing war in Ukraine and rising inflation levels necessitating monetary policy tightening by Central Banks globally

Trucking, thus, is projected to maintain its overall cruising speed as well as growth momentum in 2023 across most markets with a year-on-year growth of up to 10% projected for traditional markets, i.e., North American Class 8 and EU30 market for heavy trucks, while the growth rate for emerging markets in Asia, led by China and India, is likely to be around 15%.
