Heavy Duty Truck Engine Platform Strategies : By 2022 Over Half of All Heavy-Duty Trucks Sold Globally to Feature Engines with Platform-based Lineage

There is a paradigm shift in the production of heavy-duty trucks across all markets, with platform-based production and modularity emerging as key enablers for profitability. Horizontal deployment of technology and cost benefits across the value chain (research and development, procurement, and manufacturing) will become a global phenomenon in the commercial vehicle market. The study captures the key emerging trends in the global heavy duty truck engine market with an emphasis on platform development strategies of different OEMs across different regions. Additionally, regional focus, highlighting platform-based production penetration and shift in weighted average displacement, has been captured.

Key Research Findings

HD Truck Engine Platform Market: Key Research Findings, Global, 2015–2022

1By 2022, platform-based engine production is set to reach % in India, % in China, % in South America, % in North America, and % in Europe. In 2022, more than half of the global Heavy Duty (HD) truck engine production will be platform based.

2 NA and Europe are expected to focus on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) and fuel efficiency regulations, while India and China will move toward Euro VI regulations in 2022. In South America, Brazil and Chile, moving toward Euro IV regulations, will be advanced compared to Peru, Argentina, and Bolivia.

3 The average price of HD truck engine is expected to reach $ in NA, $ in Europe, $ in China, $ in India in 2022.

4 Power Density is set to increase in 2022 with a majority of OEMs in Europe ( hp/l) and North America ( hp/l) implementing engine downsizing. China ( hp/L) will upsize the engine to meet the power requirements of vocational applications and cross-country hauling.

5 Cummins has taken the lead in global engine platform development with ISG platforms designed in the US and manufactured in China, capable of meeting wide-ranging emission legislations across the world. Among the OEMs, Scania, Volvo, and Daimler have emerged leaders in terms of the platform-based engine production used in trucks.
