The truck platooning market was valued at USD 1856.01 million in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 9862.71 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of about 32.1% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 pandemic has hindered the growth of the truck platooning market due to travel restrictions and lockdowns imposed by various governments across the world to contain the spread of the virus. In addition, high costs associated with the adoption and implementation of the currently available technology are another factor affecting the market growth. However, the market is expected to witness steady growth due to supportive government policies for truck platooning.

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.

However, the market faces challenges from restraint factors such as high hardware and technology costs, which may hamper market growth.

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 significant revenue share in the truck platooning market. The Asia-Pacific truck platooning market is expected to register a significant growth rate in terms of CAGR over the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Growing Technological Advancements in Truck Platooning are Driving the Market

There is an increase in demand for more fuel-efficient and safer vehicles, owing to which automobile manufacturers are heavily investing in the latest vehicle technologies. Truck platooning is one of the advanced technologies that automobile manufacturers are using to make trucks more efficient and safer. Some of the advanced features deployed in truck platooning include adaptive cruise control, forward collision avoidance and mitigation system, lane departure warning, and active braking systems.

All these features, if availed in the trucks, are expected to enable them to enter into the semi-autonomous level of driving and reduce the probability of human error accidents during their transit. Other developed infrastructure systems involved in truck platooning, including vehicle-to-vehicle communications (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and satellite communications (GPS), have ensured secure connectivity between vehicles and other information networks, where freight fleet operators can smoothly monitor the transportation administrations.

Adaptive cruise control (ACC) is projected to be the fastest-growing segment of the truck platooning market. ACC is an essential system for truck platooning operations. ACC helps to automate the speed of the trucks with the help of V2V communication. A few projects, such as SARTRE, PATH, GCDC (Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge), SCANIA, and ENERGY-ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems), have been initiated and implemented across various regions to test and verify automotive (majorly truck) platooning systems.

Europe is Expected to Hold The High Market Share During The Forecast Period

The developed regions, like Europe, are heavily investing in truck platooning technology to cater to various needs of people. According to Eurostat, over 75% of inland cargo transport within the European Union, i.e., about 1,750 billion ton-kilometers (tkm), travel by road. Whereas, in some European countries, this percentage reached 90% or more.

The major factors driving the growth of the market include pioneering efforts in truck platooning, technological advancements, and stringent vehicle safety norms in the region. The primary factors responsible for driving the growth in the European markets are the technological advancements such as the integrated application of IoT and the implementation of strict regulations such as ACEA's EU General Safety Regulation norms pertaining to vehicle safety.

North America is also investing in activities toward truck platoons, which primarily began with efforts from automotive giants, such as Daimler AG, Volvo, and other firms. The development of favorable regulatory policies in the United States from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) that feature accountability, safety, and compliance are the potential factors contributing to the market growth. Moreover, North American transportation trucks play a vital role in logistical operations and have a significant contribution to the transportation industry.

Competitive Landscape

The truck platooning market is majorly dominated by Peloton Technology, Daimler AG, Volvo Group, Scania AB, Continental AG, and DAF Trucks, among others. The truck platooning market includes truck OEMs and technology providers and is primarily characterized by a growing number of mergers and acquisitions, in addition to increasing investments. For instance-

  • Horiba MIRA has confirmed that its partnership with GNSS specialist GMV NSL to develop new and improved passenger car platooning solutions for the European Space Agency (ESA) will enter a live trials phase in Q1 2022, encompassing both simulated and physical testing.
  • Daimler AG is focusing on enhancing road safety and is continuously involved in technological innovations to boost truck platooning adoption. Such developments are anticipated to help the company emerge as one of the prominent players in the truck platooning market.
  • In November 2020, Scania acquired Nantong Gaokai, a truck company in China, to start making trucks for the first time in the world's biggest auto market. The focus of acquisition is to bring safer and more fuel-efficient vehicles by promoting technologies like truck platooning in the market.
  • In October 2020, TRATON SE planned to acquire the remaining 83.2% stake in Navistar International Corp. for a total cash consideration of USD 3.7 billion to expand its product portfolio. The acquisition is likely to focus on the development and establishment of trucks in the market for commercial applications.
