This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global truck platooning system market by the key areas and includes geographies like the Americas, APAC, and EMEA. Some of the leading vendors analyzed in this market are Peloton Technology, Volvo, Scania, and Daimler.

Overview of the truck platooning system market

The concept of truck platooning is perceived as the future of the transportation industry. In a truck platoon, multiple trucks travel at an aerodynamically efficient distance and drive cooperatively by maintaining the distance. A truck platoon is similar to a train’s compartment-like arrangement but with physical disconnects. With EU holding a clear vision for truck platooning by 2025, this market is anticipated to have a positive outlook in the coming years. Moreover, the Infrastructure and Environment Ministry of EU affirmed plans to harmonize rules to facilitate large-scale, cross-border transportation through truck platooning. Additionally, several states in the US such as Texas, Florida, and California are processing relevant legislation and are also getting ready for pilot testing, which will propel the growth prospects for this market during the predicted period. Extensive research carried out by the market research analysts at Technavio has shown that the global truck platooning system market will witness tremendous growth and will post an impressive CAGR of more than 18% over the forecast period.

One of the upcoming trends spurring this market’s growth is the emergence of newer businesses as a result of truck platooning. If truck platoons are permitted to operate exclusively on truck-only highways, it is likely to lead to an integrated business model between the infrastructure service provider and transportation service provider. It may also result in several public-private partnerships for financing the concept of truck platooning. The market for truck platooning is anticipated to pave opportunities for several new businesses including road construction business, transportation and logistics service providers, and ICT providers because of the potential business opportunity arising from connected technology offerings and the need for wireless communication technologies. Furthermore, several taxi platoons or several cars traversing the same route can enter the platoon mode for a more relaxed driving experience and, thus, leverage the benefits that stem from platooning. The advent of new businesses is expected to steer this market’s growth over the next four years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the truck platooning market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

In terms of geography, EMEA led the global truck platooning market and accounted for nearly 48% of the market share during 2015. The EU market is a mature automotive market and holds high potential for the truck platooning system market. The region is well placed in terms of smart mobility and developed ICT infrastructure and with the implementation of favorable regulatory mandates, this market is expected to witness promising growth in the region over the forecast period.

Truck platooning as a concept is fairly new and is part of a suite of features that self-driving trucks might employ in the near future. A platoon is a group of vehicles that can safely travel closely together at high speeds. In a platoon, a lead vehicle controls the speed and direction, and all subsequent vehicles, which have precisely coordinated braking and acceleration, respond to the lead vehicle’s movement. Since platooning helps to decrease the distance between cars or trucks by utilizing electronic or mechanical coupling, vehicles can accelerate or brake simultaneously; thus, eliminating the reacting distance needed for human reaction
