Pune, Oct. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global autonomous trucks market size is projected to reach USD 2,013.34 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 12.6% during the forecast period. Widespread pollution caused by conventional trucks will be a leading factor stoking the adoption of driverless trucks, shares Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled Autonomous Trucks Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Level of Autonomy (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4), By Sensor Type (Ultrasonic, Radar, Camera, LiDAR), By Propulsion (Diesel, Electric, Others), By Truck Type (Light Duty Truck, Medium Duty Truck, Heavy Duty Truck), By ADAS Features (Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Detection, Intelligent Park Assist, Highway Pilot, Traffic Jam Assist) and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027”. Heavy-duty, diesel-powered trucks are one of the largest contributors to air pollution around the globe, playing a major role in premature deaths and health costs.

According to a study conducted by the International Council on Clean Transportation, exhaust emissions from these vehicles were responsible for over 380,000 deaths in 2015, with health impacts amounting to roughly USD 1 trillion. In Canada, a study by the University of Toronto revealed that large diesel trucks were the primary emitters of black carbon, while in the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that the transportation sector accounted for 28% of the air pollution in the US. Autonomous trucks are the ideal solution for the problem of air pollution as these vehicles are electrically driven, which can result in a substantial reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Market Driver

Staggering Shortage of Truck Drivers to Favor Market Growth

With the majority of baby-boomer drivers slated to retire in the next few years, particularly in North America and Europe, the two regions are staring at a critical shortage of truck drivers. In the US, for example, the American Trucking Associations reported an increase in driver deficit from 10,000 in 2017 to 60,800 in 2018. Furthermore, in the next five years, according to the American Transportation Research Institute, trucking companies will need to fill a dearth of 100,000 drivers to operate their vehicles.

Similarly, in Europe, data from the International Road Transport Union reveal that commercial freight driver shortage rose from 23% in 2019 to 36% in 2020, with the heaviest impact being borne by Poland and Romania. To overcome these shortfalls, truck companies are expected to switch to driverless trucks in the coming decade, which is expected to prove beneficial for Autonomous Trucks Market.
