Heavy-duty trucks are used to transport heavy loads that cannot be transported by ordinary load carrying capacity trucks. These vehicles are specially designed to carry heavy loads and transport these loads from one place to another. These vehicles are generally employed in urban and suburban areas. Heavy-duty trucks are heavier than medium duty trucks. Their weight ranges between 26001 lbs to over 33000 lbs (11794 kg to over 14969 kg). Heavy-duty trucks comprise a trailer or a goods carrying space and provide easy and safe transportation. Heavy-duty trucks are employed in diverse industries including logistics, construction, and Dump trucks. These trucks save time for the transportation of the goods and materials.
Increase in demand of goods along with increase in construction and development of infrastructure is a major factor driving the demand for heavy-duty trucks. The trucks manufactured presently are more reliable, effective, fuel-efficient, and possess a higher load-carrying capacity, as compared to those of trucks manufactured earlier. The heavy duty trucks available in the market earlier were not very efficient; however, technological enhancements have improved fuel-efficiency, and new technologies enable trucks to haul heavier weight, as compared to vehicles with the same power. Consequently, the world is facing a major issue of heavy load carrying capacity, which can reduce the usage of more vehicles. Heavy-duty trucks are also utilized as garbage or waste collection vehicles.
Furthermore, governments across the globe are taking initiatives to educate people about waste management and recycling. This, in turn, is expected to drive the global market of waste and subsequently, of heavy-duty trucks. India is projected to be a major market for waste or heavy-duty trucks during the forecast period, as government initiatives, such as smart-city and Swachh-Bharat, to create a healthy and clean environment are estimated to offer significant opportunity to the waste or heavy-duty trucks market.
The global heavy-duty trucks market can be segmented based on class type, end-use application, technology, fuel, and region.
