The global demand for semi-trailers has witnessed a sustained growth in recent years, brought on by the advancements in key end-use sectors, according to a report by Grand View Research. The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced the industry advancement in recent months, and is expected to impact the development in the near future.

The global semi-trailer market size is poised to reach USD 24.8 billion by 2025, as per a study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. The industry is expected to advance at a CAGR of 3.1% over the forecast period. There has been a continued rise in demand for semi-trailers across the construction, defense, automotive, and energy sectors, which is presented as a key driver for the market growth. In addition, increasing dependence of e-commerce companies on third-party logistics providers to ensure transportation of goods through hub and spoke distribution model is another factor ushering in positive developments for the industry. Furthermore, the expanding cold chain and logistics industry is contributing significantly to the market growth. Less than truckload (LTL) and full truckload (FTL) freight shipping companies worldwide are increasingly adopting semi-trailers due to the versatility they offer in terms of load carrying capacity. Another advantage for semi-trailers over rigid trucks is the lower cost of transportation per ton per km, which has enhanced its adoption globally.

Over the last few years, the semi-trailer demand has witnessed strong growth coinciding with the advancements being observed in the oil & gas sector. In the coming years, the market is poised to witness a steady rise in demand due to relaxation of regulations regarding the length and load carrying capacity of semi-trailers. Government regulations supporting the introduction of lightweight and eco-friendly transport vehicles are expected to shape the future market demand. Manufacturers are increasingly incorporating advanced technologies such as driver assistance systems (DAS) and other connectivity solutions into their products to help their consumers enhance operational efficiency. Furthermore, growing preference for platooning and introduction of electric semi-trailer trucks are expected to create huge opportunities for the manufacturers in the coming years. Increasing R&D investments towards aerodynamics enhancement, tire safety, electrified axles, tractor-trailer integration, and semi-trailer telematics is further expected to augment industry growth.
