The Development Trend Of Trucks

- Mar 23, 2018-

1. The tractors and dump trucks in heavy trucks will be the main models, and the market share of trucks and vans will gradually shrink.

At present, the product structure of foreign companies, as well as the main domestic heavy-duty trucks such as Sinotruk, Shaanxi Auto, Chongqing Heavy Duty Truck, Beiqi Foton, etc., are mainly tractors and dump trucks; the rapid development of expressways also provides the The space for transportation and efficiency advantages will be utilized. At the same time, due to the consideration of transportation efficiency, user demand will gradually shift to tractors and dump trucks.

2. Low-tonnage medium trucks will dominate the medium-card market.

Low-tonnage medium trucks can be matched with four-cylinder diesel engines, with obvious price advantages. The price/performance ratio is obviously better than that of high-tonnage medium-duty trucks. The flexibility, convenience, economical loading capacity and cargo space of the models are very suitable for urban logistics. From the perspective of future development, low-tonnage medium trucks will also obtain city-operated permits at the right time, while high-tonnage medium-sized trucks are expected to be excluded.

3. High-tonnage medium trucks and low-tonnage heavy trucks will be in awkward conditions.

At present, this trend has already begun to appear, mainly because these types of trucks are relatively inefficient. The future of these models will be shifted to special vehicles, but the configuration will undergo major changes. For example, the power level of the engine will increase, and the axles and gearboxes will also make corresponding changes and adjustments.

4. The main matching power of medium-heavy trucks has developed toward both ends.

A diesel engine of 11 liters or more will be a joint-venture foreign brand diesel engine product, and it will also be one of the main drivers for heavy trucks. Its market size will depend on the market demand for high-end trucks, as well as its own cost level. The domestic 8-9 litre 6-cylinder diesel engine will achieve simultaneous growth with high-tonnage heavy trucks, but at present, the production capacity of each product is the biggest obstacle to its market development. Four-cylinder diesel engines up to 200 hp, which mainly match low-tonnage heavy trucks, will also develop rapidly. At the same time, the market for 7-liter, six-cylinder diesel engines will gradually shrink, and their market dominance will cease to exist.

5. The weight of heavy trucks will increase.

With the diversification of user needs, heavy-duty trucks will be developed in multiple grades. This will directly lead to an increase in the number and types of vehicle parts and components. The self-weight of the vehicle will increase, and the country will reduce the number of vehicles for a certain purpose. Damage to roads, improvement of the technical content of heavy trucks, etc.) Standards for heavy trucks will be developed, which will increase the number of axles for the entire vehicle and the application of new technologies or components, which will also increase the vehicle's weight. Some companies such as FAW and Foton have developed 10*4 models this year.
