COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID-19 pandemic caused an extraordinary drop in sales of cars in early 2020, impacting the automotive industry. To avoid the spread of the coronavirus, transportation, and manufacturing operations, as well as public transit, have been suspended. Because of the coronavirus’s growing influence on the commercial automobile sector, market demand and sales may fall dramatically. People are becoming increasingly anxious about the spread of the coronavirus, and many are wary of taking public transit. It is also anticipated that this may hinder the market growth.
Market Growth Factors
Rapid industrialization and adoption of advanced technologies & electrification
The key causes for the considerable increase of good transport vehicles, globally, are fast population growth, rapid urbanization, the development of the industrial sector, and infrastructure development. The growth of the industrial sector, particularly in developing nations, is creating a great number of opportunities pertaining to jobs in a variety of industries, including mining, construction, and tourism. As a result, an increase in work possibilities leads to an increase of commuters, which has a significant influence on the requirement of public transportation solutions.
Thriving automotive industry
Due to technical improvements and the introduction of automobiles with efficient fuel consumption technologies, the automotive sector has experienced tremendous development in recent years. Several businesses, like Ashok Leyland and Tata Motors, have been designing and introducing innovative commercial vehicles to various regions throughout the world. For example, Ashok Leyland intended to launch a new line of light commercial vehicles (LCVs) in September 2020, with the goal of reducing the company’s exposure to future downturns.
Marketing Restraining Factor
Low battery capacity in electric commercial vehicles
The batteries in today’s electric vehicles have low capacity and can only travel a short distance per charge. The performance and service life of batteries have a direct impact on electric vehicle performance and cost. Electric vehicles are now powered by lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, nickel-metal hydride, and lithium-ion batteries. Because lithium-ion batteries have a longer life span than lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, and nickel-metal hydride batteries, they are gradually replacing them in electric vehicles. Lithium-ion batteries, on the other hand, have insufficient capacity to power commercial vehicles. Batteries’ charging-discharging performance increases dramatically in cold temperatures, making it difficult for them to produce maximum power.
Based on Type, the market is segmented into Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs), Heavy Trucks and Buses & Coaches. The buses and coaches segment procured promising revenue share of the overall commercial vehicles in 2020. The segment’s expansion can be attributable to the rising usage of buses and coaches in the healthcare industry and tourism sectors.
End User Outlook
Based on End User, the market is segmented into Logistics, Industrial, Mining & Construction, Passenger Transportation, and Others. The passenger transportation segment held a significant revenue share of the overall Commercial Vehicles market in 2020. The increased use of public transit is expected to fuel demand for commercial cars.
Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. In 2020, the Asia Pacific regional market collected a significant revenue share of the commercial vehicles market. This is due to the rising demand for warehousing, transportation, and unified logistics.
