Commercial Vehicles: Advanced Machines Gain Traction

Commercial vehicles can be understood to refer to any type of motor vehicle that is used to move goods, and are used in a variety of industries with applications such as loading and transport among others. Their popularity stems from their high productivity and operational efficiency, particularly in countries that are experiencing a boom in development and economic growth. Popular examples of commercial vehicles include: trucks, buses, tractors and even buses and taxis as well.

Commercial vehicles like trucks have found applications in various end use industries such as construction, mining, petrochemicals and waste management etc., pushing for the growth of the truck market in the MENA region. Buyers of commercial trucks have been opting for vehicles that are equipped with advanced systems for better consumer experience and convenience. The trend of product innovation for efficiency based on advanced machines for heavier payloads are also expected to have a positive impact on the commercial vehicles market in Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

Commercial vehicles including trucks can be categorized on the basis of weight and the payload that they can carry, into heavy, medium and light duty vehicles. Heavy duty commercial vehicles have been and are set to be the popular choice in the MENA region, during the forecast period.

Impact of Economic Factors

There has been a spurt of economic growth in the MENA region in recent years, which has led to an increase in construction, mining, and oil and gas growing at a rapid pace. With urbanization also being a huge influence on the construction sector in the region, and newer projects being planned, this is set to have a positive impact on the commercial vehicles market as well. 

With countries in the MENA region becoming the attractive markets in the oil and gas landscape, and the use of commercial vehicles for various applications in oil and gas, is also expected to push their demand in the region.

Connectivity and Fleet Management

With technology allowing for automation of vehicles, manufacturers are already integrating technology to make connectivity and fleet management a convenience a standard. While telematics as a technology to boost productivity by tracking equipment utilization has been around for a better part of a decade, it is now being implemented for fleet management as well. It is being marketed as being helpful in improving productivity and efficiency, enhancing fleet and driver safety, and reducing operating costs. Buyers of these modernized commercial vehicles are looking at advanced telematics that delivers improvements in compliance, driver efficiency and fleet performance.
