A key factor driving the growth of the market is the reducing battery prices. Since electric trucks are driven by battery-powered systems, the battery cost is one of the most important factors contributing to the upfront cost of the electric truck. There have been several improvements in the technology of battery electric vehicles, making them more desirable to consumers. For example, advances in Li-ion batteries made them comparatively lightweight with a longer lifespan as compared to conventional lead-acid and valve-regulated lead-acid batteries.
This market research report on the global electric truck market 2019-2023 also provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook during the forecast period. Technavio classifies an emerging trend as a major factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

In this report, Technavio highlights the development of power recovery options in electric trucks as one of the key emerging trends in the global electric truck market:
Global electric truck market: Development of power recovery options in electric trucks
Electric trucks require an uninterrupted power supply to undertake operations without disruption. Increased vehicle downtime is considered a loss for the owners of trucks. Hence, truck manufacturers are equipping vehicles with the latest technologies to recover a part of the energy lost during the vehicle’s operations.
“Electric vehicle manufacturers have been integrating various technologies such as the addition of solar panels and regenerative braking as major power recovery technologies in electric vehicles. Although the amount of power regenerated through these methods is highly insufficient to recharge the battery, these technologies slow down the power consumption and increase the effective range of an electric vehicle. For example, in 2017, companies such as Audi started developing thin-film solar panels to be fitted within the glass roofs of its electric vehicles. This would increase power recovery and help to raise the effective traveling range of the electric vehicle,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on automotive manufacturing.
