ACT Research: Upcoming Emission Regulations to Benefit Smaller Engines

Posted by Jennifer McNealy on Mar 16, 2020 8:00:00 AM

According to the recently released N.A. Commercial Vehicle On-Highway Engine OUTLOOK, published by ACT Research and Rhein Associates, engines over 10L accounted for 87% of Class 8 production in 2019 because of the high demand for tractors in the peak-cycle year. Demand for under 10L engines, used mostly in trucks, was softer last year. Additionally, the report noted that emission impacts in 2024 will benefit smaller/under 10L engines that are forecast to be about 16% of the market.

ACT Research: Class 8 Truck Engine Demand Trending to Smaller Displacements

Posted by Jennifer McNealy on Aug 28, 2019 5:42:01 PM

According to the recently released N.A. Commercial Vehicle On-Highway Engine OUTLOOK, published by ACT Research and Rhein Associates, engines over 10L are projected to account for more than 85% of the Class 8 production between 2020 and 2024, and the trend to smaller displacement engines is expected to continue.

Tom Rhein, President of Rhein Associates commented, “Although the over 14L engine category will remain the largest segment in 2019, there is a trend to smaller displacement engines in the over 10L market segment for Class 8 trucks and tractors, with an acceleration prompted by new emission regulations expected in 2024.” Regarding Classes 5-7, Rhein said, “In this market, the current metric of interest is gasoline penetration, which continues to see share gains.”
