Overview of the global three-wheel passenger carrier market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global three-wheel passenger carrier market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of close to 8% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the strong demand from underdeveloped and developing nations for public transportation as one of the primary growth factors for the three-wheel passenger carrier market. The increase in the demand for low-cost passenger carriers such as 3Ws is mainly due to inadequate transportation facilities, lack of proper roads, and urban areas with heavy traffic congestions. 3Ws are used for a wide range of applications such as small logistics operations, public transportation, and personal use, which will subsequently drive the growth of this global market during the next four years.

One of the latest trends that will gain traction in the three-wheel passenger carrier market in the coming years is the customization of 3W goods carriers for day-to-day applications. Major players are modifying engines and hydraulic systems to make 3Ws more efficient and provide more output with the given engine and horsepower which can be used for applications including motorized tipper, dumper placer, and biomedical waste van. Additionally, construction companies are also focusing on replacing other machines such as hydraulically driven brooms with customized 3W goods carriers due to the need to clear debris from job sites.
