MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

The term light commercial vehicle refers to vehicles that are used for the transport of goods or persons and have a maximum total mass of 3.5 tones. The categories of vehicles considered to be light commercial vehicles are:

- Category M2 intended for the carriage of persons with more than eight seats. A D or D1 driving licence is required to drive this type of vehicle.

- Category N1 is intended for the carriage of goods, such as vans. Only a B licence is required to drive this category.

Light commercial vehicles are usually distinguished from heavy commercial vehicles that exceed 3.5 tones and are therefore referred to as commercial vehicles.

The global market was worth USD 67 billion in 2020 and is expected to be worth USD 73 billion in 2026, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5%.
