We’re at the beginning of a long and irreversible trend toward automation within the truck market. Legislation and societal acceptance provide market headwinds and competitive pressure, logistics efficiency and safety provide significant forward momentum. Platooning, an ‘efficiency’ automation provides the basis for initial market growth, particularly in the US and Western Europe. However, as technology is proven, and effective legislation enacted, higher levels of automation that lessen the need for drivers will be adopted. These higher levels of automation that bring the principles of factory automation – electrification, constant ‘product’ flow and autonomy – to the road, will gain traction after 2030 and revolutionise the truck and logistics market.
The Autonomous Trucks – 2018 report outlines the current state of the automated and autonomous truck market, with long range scenario forecasts for platooning and higher levels of autonomy out to 2040. An in-depth review of business models, legislative factors and competitive dynamics are presented, with a key focus on start-ups and disruptors. The autonomous truck market is set for a period of rapid growth beginning in 2020.
