JUN 17, 2016 - 6:53 am
ACT Research and Rhein Associates announced the inaugural publication of a new cooperative venture, the N.A. On-highway CV Engine Outlook report. The Engine Outlook, available now, is designed to present historical trends, current activity and forecasts of engine demand in on-highway commercial vehicles. The report analyzes major trends in engine displacement, engine type (diesel, gasoline, natural gas and other), captive versus non-captive engines and premium versus non-premium power for Class 8 vehicles.
“We are planning to research, analyze and forecast a variety of CV engine-related characteristics in each quarterly issue, including current and future OEM offerings and the potential impact of engine-related regulations.” said Tom Rhein, president, Rhein Associates. “We are very excited about this new report and the opportunity to partner with ACT Research, who provided the overall economic, historical and vehicle forecast data.”
According to ACT’s senior partner and general manager, Ken Vieth, “We, too, are enthused about this project, which has been in the making for quite some time. Tom and I have had several discussions about the engine market, how it has changed through the years and what is on the horizon with new regulations and technical developments. We finally decided the time was right to turn these discussions into a publication with analysis and forecasts that could be available to benefit the entire industry.”
“With the impending GHG Phase Two regulations, with the growth of vertical integration across the supply chain, and with the constant push for engine efficiencies and reduced emissions simultaneously, now seemed like the perfect opportunity to apply our models and expertise collaboratively to provide intel unlike any other available,” Vieth said.
