The autonomous truck industry is a rapidly growing sector of the transportation industry with the potential to revolutionize the delivery and transportation of goods. Also known as self-driving trucks, these trucks are equipped with sensors such as cameras, radar, LiDAR, and advanced computer systems that allow them to operate without human intervention.
The market for autonomous trucks is driven by several factors, including the increasing demand for efficient and cost-effective transportation, the need to reduce labor costs, and the development of advanced technologies. In addition, the growing concern about the safety of human drivers, particularly in long-haul trucking, and the innovation in Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS is boosting the market.
In terms of safety, autonomous trucks can reduce the number of accidents caused by human error. These vehicles can detect obstacles, adjust their speed, and react to changing road conditions, reducing the risk of collisions. Additionally, self-driving trucks can be programmed to follow strict safety protocols, such as maintaining safe distances from other vehicles and obeying speed limits and traffic signals. The safety factor is also boosting the market.
The market is divided into different levels of automation from level 0 to level 5. These levels represent how much the trucks can operate without human intervention. The development of higher levels of automation is expected to have significant benefits for the transportation industry. However, there are also concerns about the impact on employment in the industry and the need for advanced infrastructure to support the market.
North American is one of the largest regions in the market due to the high demand for long-haul transportation and the presence of several major truck manufacturers and technology companies. Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a rapid rate owing to technological advancements, and a supportive regulatory environment the autonomous trucks market. For instance, in November 2022, the Chinese government released a strategy that promotes "level 2" or "level 3" automated vehicles to account for 70% of sales by 2030. By 2025, China aims 50% of all new-car sales to be made up of vehicles with some level of automated driving.
