Market Share by Type

The domestic type has held the largest share in the road haulage market owing to its demand in larger nations, and minimal barriers such as border crossing protocols. Domestic road haulage is more economical as compared to the international deliveries and is useful for larger companies with multiple locations within a country. As various countries push for increased domestic production, road haulage demand domestically will increase further. International segment is also expected to observe growth in the forecast period, supported by trade agreements and relaxations in import duty and tax. 

 

Market Share by Vehicle Type

Heavy commercial vehicles are expected to heave a leading position in the road haulage market, due to larger companies and manufacturers shipping high volumes of products. Transportation of heavy goods across long distances typically requires heavy commercial vehicles, increasing their production. With rising fuel prices and labour costs, its often more cost-effective to send larger rather than smaller shipments.

 

Light commercial vehicles are observed to witness growth in the market because of the increasing demand for niche deliveries across long distances. With the growth of small and medium enterprises and manufacturers involved in low-volume production, the demand for light commercial vehicles is on the rise. Such vehicles tend to be faster and easier to drive, increasing their suitability for urgent deliveries.
