This strategicorientation, focus & outlook report is the definitive & mostcomprehensive strategy dossier on world’s leading truck-makers. The report lines-up the world’s 6 leading truck-making companies and brings to forefront an overview & coordinates of their strategic orientation & outlook amidst an industry landscape that has almost completely changed since the onset of global economic slowdown towards the late 2008. The Western European market almost halved in 2009 as compared to pre-recession demand levels while the North American market too went through the carnage. The emerging markets on the other hand maintained their growth trajectory & remained more or less insulated to the conditions prevailing in other parts of the world primarily on account of strong domestic demand originating from a sustained economic growth rate.
Almost all truck-makers deployed an array of coping strategies to best adapt to the rapidly altered market & industry dynamics as well as environment and thus have undergone a major transformation in terms of structure, alignment and stance while navigating through these unprecedented times.
