Truck Fuel Efficiency: 2018 Trends, Drivers, Challenges and Emerging Technologies - ResearchAndMarkets.com

August 30, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 30, 2018--The “Truck Fuel Efficiency: Trends, Challenges and Emerging Technologies” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Growing oil demand has led to considerable volatility in fuel prices since the beginning of the 21st century. Recent rises in crude oil and automotive fuel prices underline the potential for disrupting operator business models and growing political risks mean the issue looks as if it will remain critical in the coming years.

While fuel costs accounted for around 10% of freight costs a decade or two ago, they have been as high as 35% during recent years, and operators now regard 30% as a benchmark.

This report outlines the commercial, political and legislative environment, tracks the key technologies, and reports on the status of their development. The report pulls together a number of different perspectives and looks at developments around the entire vehicle to provide an overview of the overall trends in this very important area.
