Global Truck Markets

DAF continued to strengthen its position in the European truck market, achieving a market share of 16.0 percent in the above 16-tonne segment in the first five months of 2012. “DAF is one of the market leaders in the European tractor segment as fleets recognize DAF’s product quality leadership, low operating costs and excellent resale value,” said Harrie Schippers, DAF president. “We estimate that 2012 industry registrations in the above 16-tonne truck market in Europe will be 210,000-230,000 units, compared to 241,000 units in 2011.”

“Class 8 industry retail sales in the U.S. and Canada are expected to be in the range of 210,000-230,000 vehicles in 2012. Industry retail sales in 2011 were 197,000 units. Our customers are benefiting from higher freight tonnage, improved fleet utilization rates and lower fuel prices,” said Dan Sobic, PACCAR executive vice president. “For the first half of 2012, PACCAR increased its Class 8 retail market share in the U.S. and Canada to 29.9 percent.”

The DAF product range offers premium quality, low operating costs and the industry-leading PACCAR MX engine," said Bob Christensen, PACCAR executive vice president.
