Commercial Vehicle Calibration Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

The vehicle calibration process assists owners in determining distinct attributes of their vehicle for adhering to legislative standards and refinement of the car’s character to meet the expectations of drivers’ comfort.

If a vehicle is sideswiped it needs recalibration for mirrors and lane departure warnings. In the case of a fender bender, the bumper sensors need to be recalibrated. Even parts like wheels also may require calibration. Through a crash or repair process calibration is needed to validate all is working well and aimed precisely.

Nowadays electronic control systems are widely applied in modern vehicles and this is likely to increase demand for calibration technology. There is various type of vehicle calibration such as Engine calibration and EAS calibration for increasing fuel efficiency and vehicle life span. Nowadays, decreasing development time and cost and at the same time dealing with the developing number of variations and calibration complexity is the common trend in the market.

The global market for commercial vehicles grew to about USD 23.3 million units in 2021, slowly recovering from the pandemic impact in 2019-2020. This market is further projected to expand in the forecast period. This highlights there will be more vehicles undergoing calibration procedures in the forthcoming period.

Propelling response from the construction sector to fuel demand for calibration

The need for commercial vehicles in the construction and retail/wholesale sectors is likely to increase along with urbanization, which is predicted to accelerate the expansion of the global market. The demand for heavy vehicles is also fuelled by the expanding e-commerce and logistics sectors, which over the course of the projected period accelerates the expansion of the market.

Another reason that drives up demand for periodic vehicle calibration and has a favorable effect on the growth of the market is the strict rules and regulations surrounding vehicle emissions that are set out by governments of various countries across the world.

Stringent emission standards to demand calibration of components

Nowadays, emission regulations come to be difficult to fulfil owing to stringent limits and the very strong requirement to reduce fuel consumption. Additionally, vehicle emissions and fuel consumption need to be proven at various ambient conditions (NTE). To accomplish these objectives, the powertrain components, need to be well synchronized, hardware as well as calibration. These factors are estimated to accelerate the growth of the market.

Due to increasing environmental safety concerns, the demand for electric vehicles is increasing and also the government of several countries promotes electro-mobility, which adversely affects the new sale of IC engine vehicles. These factors are expected to stagnant the growth of the market over the assessment period.

The rising regulations of vehicle emission control demand targets of Co2 reduction that are pushing Original equipment manufacturing companies to think of novel technologies that reduce the emission. The complex subsystems and after-treatments have been demonstrated to improvement in fuel efficiency and reduce exhausting emissions. The control and optimization of these included a certain degree of additional challenges in engine calibration.

Opportunity for manufacturers- Virtualisation of calibration

As the automotive industry is growing continuously the competition among brands is estimated to rise. As companies are aiming to launch new models with shorter marketing time virtualization has a crucial role to play during the engine manufacturing process. As it will reduce the prototypes and need for experimental testing to a greater extent.

The development of such a fully physical model allows the prediction of engine functionalities even in off-design conditions. This calibration function occurs at an early stage and reduced scrutiny time. As a result, the virtual approach in vehicle engine calibration is likely to gain global attention in upcoming years.

Regional Outlook

The North American market is expected to hold a significant share in the global market owing to increasing commercial vehicle sales as well as vehicle parc across the region. Along with this factor, the rise in vehicle repair and maintenance activity is expected to direct effect on the growth of the market throughout the forecast period. Europe is expected to witness healthy growth during the assessment period due to the numerous manufacturers in the region.

Moreover, the growing automotive industry in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific such as China, and India is expected to contribute a significant share in the growth of the global market due to the growing demand for vehicles in the logistics and construction industries over the forecast period. Emerging economies such as the Middle East & Africa and Latin America are also projected to increase the demand for heavy vehicles, due to increasing sales of commercial vehicles in the mining and oil & gas industries across the regions throughout the assessment period.

Recent Developments

On March 2022, Ricardo Plc acquired inside infrastructure to expand further the environmental capacities across the Australian region. This strategic move has strengthened the company’s current position and opened up new growth opportunities.

x- DASalign is a truck driver assistance system for vehicles developed recently by Durr with the utmost precision. The company have launched several driver assistance features on similar lines of passenger vehicle into commercial vehicles.

These include -

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)- which maintains a safe distance, from the preceding drives while taking both vehicles’ speeds into account.
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)- a camera behind the windshield identifies if a vehicle is leaving the lane and warn the driver with the haptic warnings.
