Off Highway manufacturers face many challenges in their bid to remain profitable. Amongst the converging economic pressures, fixed costs continue to rise. Industry mandates on safety regulations, emission control, noise reduction, and driver fatigue continue to force increased R&D spending on efficient engine and alternate powertrain design.
As rising global industrial activity presents opportunities for entry into new and developing markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China, these emerging economies also give rise to global competition, including lower cost competitors with strong localized relationships. Advancing product and technology innovations such as hybridization and electrification are rapidly shifting fleet owner demands for product enhancements and value-added services. As a result, off highway manufacturing companies must find ways to gain operational efficiencies and increase productivity while rapidly innovating, testing, and optimizing new and unique product designs.
