Technavio automotive analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global 3W goods carrier market:

Low operational and maintenance costs of 3W goods carrier

The 3W goods carriers are the cheapest mode of goods transportation, with product price ranging from USD 2,000 to USD 3,540. The lower cost of such vehicles allows small logistic firms and individual end-users to adopt such vehicles over four-wheeler minitrucks, which cost over USD 5,388.

Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead automotive manufacturing research analyst at Technavio, says, “The low operational costs of 3Ws compared with four-wheelers drive the market. The components and accessories of 3Ws are designed to have long life considering the heavy usage than other vehicles.”

Financial assistance for ownership of 3W goods carriers

Many financial institutions, including banks and private firms, especially in India, have come up with various vehicle loan schemes to support the purchase of 3Ws. Owing to the lower cost credits and the daily pay returns for end-users from such vehicles have increased the trust of financial institutions to come up with more schemes.

Induslnd Bank and Shriram Transport Finance are few of such finance institutions, which support the financing of 3Ws in India. By looking at such beneficial business models, even ICICI Bank is in the process of creating a rural financing program to obtain the potential opportunities from rural regions of India,” adds Siddharth.

Strong demand from underdeveloped and developing nations for last mile connectivity

Infrastructure development has a direct impact on various sectors of the economy. Better infrastructure development leads to high demand for goods carriers, as they are used for a wide range of construction activities. Increased spending on infrastructure construction projects and mining activities are a challenge to underdeveloped and developing countries.

3W goods carriers are the better option in the case of last mile connectivity, especially for infrastructure developments. Economic conditions of these nations are expected to continue to grow over the forecast period. This is expected to boost the market for 3Ws in these countries.
