E-Truck Market Statistics 2021-2030:

The global electric truck market was valued at $392.3 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $3,861.8 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 26.4% from 2021 to 2030.

Electric trucks can be defined as commercial vehicles that are powered by pack of batteries and are used for transportation of cargos. In addition, in electric trucks, motors inside have fewer parts moving as compared to diesel truck and do not need multi-speed transmissions, which, in turn, reduces maintenance cost of vehicles and improves reliability with almost zero noise pollution. Further, electric trucks are becoming the preferred choice over diesel trucks, owing to government initiatives to promote adoption of electric truck and its remarkable advantages such as gobs of torque, no noise pollution, and lower maintenance cost.

Fuel cell electric truck is projected as the most lucrative segments

Increase in government initiatives for promotion of e-mobility

Governments across the world are putting pressure on vehicle manufacturers to reduce carbon emissions caused by diesel fuel combustion and tackle the greenhouse gas emissions, in turn, pushing them to invest in developing electric trucks. For that, Governments are providing incentives with programs and schemes for manufacturing of battery electric trucks, which in turn is anticipated to propel the growth of the market. In addition, governments around the world are supporting for the purchase of electric mobility, in terms of tax credits and incentives. Moreover, the central governments of few countries are providing exemption from the highway toll tax for electric vehicles. For instance, for faster adoption of electric vehicles, the Indian government plans to lower the Goods & Service Tax (GST) on e-vehicles from 12% to 5%. Moreover, around $2,101.5 tax exemptions will be given on loan taken for the purchase of an e-mobility. In addition, the South Korean government has announced that it will be providing the $900 million tax exemptions and subsidies for development and purchase of electric and fuel cell vehicle. Thus, increase in government support for the development and purchase of electric mobility, in terms of tax credits, subsidies and incentives, is one of the major factors propelling the demand for electric truck. Moreover, various countries are planning to switch completely to electric trucks from conventional trucks owing to stringent emission norms. For instance, on September 2019, Nitin Gadkari (Union Minister of Road Transport and highways in India) said that all the buses in India will switch to electric propulsion type in following two years to cut down the pollution levels across the country. Such initiatives are expected to drive the growth of the global e-truck market.

Stringent emission norms imposed on fossil-fuel powered commercial vehicles

With the growing environmental concerns, governments and environmental agencies across the world are enacting stringent emission norms and laws to reduce vehicle emission. Major regulatory measures are stringent emissions targets for the reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon dioxide (CO2) in air. Due to the high amounts of greenhouse gases being emitted from vehicles, the federal and state governments in the U.S. are stepping up efforts to make transportation cleaner. For instance, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that they are working on new rules to decrease emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and other pollutants from heavy-duty trucks. In addition, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is adopting heavy-duty Low NOx Omnibus Regulation, aims to achieve a 90% reduction from current NOx emissions limits by 2027. Moreover, in Europe, European Union (EU) committed within the Paris agreement (COP21) to achieve its 20% greenhouse gas reduction target in 2020 for the second phase of the Kyoto Protocol. The EU has also set the target to achieve 40% greenhouse gas reduction by 2040 and net-zero by 2050. Therefore, with the enactment of the emission regulations for fossil fuel-powered vehicle, the burden on vehicle manufacturers, especially on commercial vehicle manufacturers, has further increased. This, in turn, is expected to drive the demand for electric trucks. Thus, stringent emission norms imposed on fossil-fuel powered commercial vehicles significantly driving the growth of electric truck market.

Heavy duty electric truck is projected as the most lucrative segments

Lack of charging infrastructure

Government of various countries are promoting adoption of electric vehicles for commercial purpose to reduce the emission of greenhouse into environment. However, lack of charging infrastructure for electric trucks acts as an obstacle for the electric truck market. For instance, the Government of India is aiming to have only electric vehicle on roads by 2030. However, creation of robust electric vehicle infrastructure is one of the key requirements to ensure the adoption of electric vehicles. Unfortunately, EV charging infrastructure in India is inadequate at present and yet to catch up to meet the requirement, which in turn is hampering the growth of the electric truck market. In addition, though China is one of the biggest markets for electric vehicles, the country is struggling to support the sufficient electric vehicle charging infrastructure to recharge electric fleets, which is anticipated to hindering the market. Thus, lack of charging infrastructure is restraining the growth of electric truck market. Therefore, lack of charging infrastructure in most of the countries across the world hindering the growth of electric truck market.

Rise in demand for electric trucks from the logistics sector

Reduction in emission of harmful gases from the vehicles is observed as demand for green transport is increasing worldwide, especially in the freight transportation industry, which contributes highly to carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, replacement of commercial diesel vehicles by electric vehicle and supportive government initiatives for adoption of electric trucks are anticipated to boost the electric truck market.

Above 300 Miles is projected as the most lucrative segments

Attributed to the rising demand for logistics services on account of expanding e-commerce, retail and manufacturing industries, the supply chain and logistics companies are actively participating in replacing their fleet with greener vehicles. For instance, in the UK, logistics companies have started plans to deploy more electric commercial vehicle in its fleet size in the coming years. In 2016, United Parcel Service (UPS), an American multinational package delivery and supply chain management company, and ARRIVAL, a UK-based technology firm, announced to develop a state-of-the-art pilot fleet of 35 commercial electric delivery vehicles to be trialed in London and Paris. In addition, in March 2019, Yamato Transport Co., Ltd. (Yamato Transport) announced that it has jointly developed a compact commercial electric truck for home delivery with StreetScooter GmbH (Aachen, Germany), a Post DHL Group company. Yamato Transport plans to introduce 500 electric trucks in 2019, and start using them from autumn successively in Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba, and Kanagawa. Therefore, rising the demand for electric trucks from the logistics sector offering the lucrative opportunities for market growth. 

Covid-19 Scenario Analysis 

The overall automobile market suffered losses in the initial months of the pandemic when sales of vehicles reduced drastically due to lockdowns. Closing down the factories resulting in the expulsion of the workers and the terror of stagnation due to coronavirus are leading to a significant decline in the sales of the electric trucks in first and second quarter of the 2020.  Nevertheless, the demand for electric trucks is expected to gain traction after the lockdown restrictions are relaxed. However, during the second half of 2020, the sales increased and, in most cases, reduced the losses for those past months. The sales of electric vehicles increased in 2020 and 2021 due to the growing trend of vehicle electrification around the world. This sector was thus, less affected by the pandemic.
