The increasing demand for lowering the consumption of fuel and the rising demand for lowering emissions from vehicles is the major factor that can act as a driver for the surge in demand of Truck Platooning market. Another facor that   

Market Size – USD 1,165.6 Million in 2020, Market Growth - CAGR of 31.65%, Market Trends – Growing automotive industry has proliferated the rising need for safety of the vehicle as well as the passengers, thus in turn fostering the growth of the Truck Platooning market.  

According to the current analysis of Reports and Data, the global Truck Platooning market was valued at USD 1,165.6 Million in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 30.10% from 2020 to 2028. The increasing government regulations related to the reduction of emissions as well as the rising demand for lowering the fuel consumption are the major factors for the growth of the Truck Platooning market. Another factor that is boosting the growth of the Truck Platooning market is the rising adoption of Internet of Things (IoT). The factor restraining the growth of the market is the high cost of technology. Another factor that will hinder the growth of the market is the quality of the roads need to be good enough.

Truck platooning refers to the linking of at least two or more trucks in a convoy, with the use of connectivity technology and computerized driving support systems. This results in improved fuel efficiency of the trucks. The rising demand for better fuel efficiency has been the factor for the growth of the Truck Platooning market. Some of the advanced features of this system include adaptive cruise control, forward collision avoidance system and lane departure warning. Inclusion of such features in the trucks will help them to enter into semi-autonomous level of driving capability, thus reducing the probability of human error accidents in between transits.

One of the challenges the industry faces at the moment is that truck platooning works only for a convoy of mono branded trucks. The testing for multi branded trucks is still under progress and thus inclusion of truck platooning for multi brands can act as a restraining factor. However, the inclusion of multi branded truck platooning can boost the growth of the market over the forecasted period. Japan government is promotinig truck platooning and automation in order to address its own problem of driver shortage and improving the transportation efficiency. Same with the European government which has been working on truck platooning. The road infrastructure in the region is being upgraded in order to support the Truck platooning.
