According to the recent release of ACT Research’s China Commercial Vehicle OUTLOOK, China’s heavy and medium commercial vehicle markets reported an uptick in sales during 2020’s second quarter, versus the ground lost from the severe setback in Q1’20 due to the COVID-19 virus. Domestic heavy-duty truck sales rose 69% year-over-year, while tractor demand was up nearly 72% and medium-duty truck sales in China rose more than 44% year-over-year in Q2.
According to the recent release of ACT Research’s China Commercial Vehicle OUTLOOK, China’s heavy and medium commercial vehicle markets suffered a severe setback in Q1’20 due to the COVID-19 virus. The truck portion of China’s commercial vehicle market has already shown a significant recovery in the first two months of 2020’s second quarter.
According to the recent release of ACT Research’s China Commercial Vehicle OUTLOOK, China’s heavy and medium truck markets, including tractors, are expected to suffer a severe setback in Q1’20, before a small recovery in Q2. The report also explained that policies like “reducing human gathering and mobility” in response to the virus outbreak were a heavy blow to freight demand, which harmed medium and heavy duty truck demand. These same forces have dramatically reduced the medium and large bus forecast.
