LONDON, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2016 edition of the report provides a Comprehensive & Insightful Comparative SWOT Framework Analysis on the Global Top 7 Medium & Heavy Truck manufacturers amid an emerging market scenario with the global medium & heavy truck market witnessing disparate economic & market conditions across key geographic regions with traditional markets, led by North America & Europe, witnessing steady growth while emerging markets, led by Brazil, China & Russia, face a demand slump with a host of complex economic challenges & pressures against the backdrop of a difficult global macroeconomic environment marked by financial markets volatility, continued weakness in commodity prices, plummeting of crude oil prices and continued geo-political conflict.
The EU & the U.S. markets witnessed strong demand growth for medium & heavy Trucks in 2015 with robust freight activity, increasing fleet utilization and strong profitability for fleet operators with continued plummeting of crude oil prices. The U.S. Economy continues to prove itself as the stable cornerstone of the global economy with steady economic growth momentum followed by Europe which, too, continues to make slow economic recovery. The economic growth in China has slowed down to the lowest rate in over 25 years accompanied by continued financial markets volatility as the country strives to transition to a more consumption driven economy with limited reliance on manufacturing & heavy industries which has impacted the growth significantly. Brazil & Russian economies, on the contrary, have been impacted severely by the energy sector downturn and are in recession, in addition, to the ongoing political crisis in Brazil with pressures likely to prevail across these economies over near term. Additionally, the ongoing mining slump with continued weakness in global commodity prices has impacted a number of other emerging markets as well. The OECD & IMF have already issued stress signals and have cut their global economic growth forecasts for the global economy for 2016 and the IMF has described the global economy as being highly vulnerable to adverse shocks.
The long-term industry fundamentals & growth drivers, however, remain strong and robust with significant role played by the industry in economic growth and significant investments likely to be made by emerging nations towards infrastructure development over medium term to support economic growth and with rapid urbanization trend. The anticipated, strategic market shift with the potential rise in strategic significance & evolution of emerging markets over long-term and the rapidly expanding pace of technology evolution & integration across product platforms, manufacturing processes & industrial footprint are amongst key trends which are likely to shape industry's future and are likely to drive growth & spearhead development of next generation products, technologies and disruptive business & service models and concepts over the next decade.
