Truck Platooning Market

New Product Development to Gain a Competitive Edge in the Truck Platooning Market

The truck platooning market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 60.69% from 2021 to 2030, and the market size is projected to grow from USD 37.6 million in 2021 to USD 2,728.7 million by 2030. The market growth is primarily driven by factors such as the increasing demand for assisted driving and reduction in operating cost. Other factors driving the growth of the truck platooning market are a reduction in the number of accidents caused due to driver error and significant testing of on-highway platooning.

The key strategy adopted by the major players in the truck platooning market is new product developments. OEMs and Tier-I suppliers are focusing on the development of a semi-autonomous truck compatible for platooning. These trucks are equipped with Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) features such as adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist, along with vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication. In July 2017, Bosch (Germany) created a “truck of the future” in its new VisionX concept and unveiled it at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016 show in Hannover. The VisionX super truck is a 40-ton smart device that can platoon with similar trucks. Supply contracts/collaborations/partnerships/joint ventures are the second most widely followed strategy in the market. In October 2017, Scania (Sweden) formed a collaboration with DB Schenker (Germany), Volvo (Sweden), the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), and the Swedish Transport Administration in a new Swedish truck platooning research project.
