OEMs are integrating fuel-efficient design in their new models to reduce air resistance and offer cost savings for fleet operators. Increasing awareness of fuel conservation and emission control has resulted in government authorities mandating technologies and emphasizing on improved designs that will help in fuel efficiency. OEMs are therefore focusing on increasing the usage of lightweight materials to reduce vehicle weight and help fleet operators reduce carbon footprint and increase cost savings. These cost savings may result from reduced fuel consumption or extra legally permissible load carrying capacity for semi-trailers.

One of the growing market trends is the use of advanced technologies such as telematics and stability control. Thus, vast opportunities exist for telematics vendors to provide solutions and services with end-to-end asset visibility. As of 2016, only 20% of the total semi-trailers in the US are equipped with semi-trailer telematics technology. However, this number is expected to grow more than three-fold by the year 2025. Semi-trailers in the US are equipped with telematics systems supplied by telematics manufacturers such as SkyBitz, Qualcomm, and PAR LMS. Semi-trailer telematics is useful for business intelligence as these vehicles use cargo sensor, door sensors, and reefer monitoring. Reefer monitoring, for instance, would help the driver and fleet manager to determine the temperature and fuel level of the reefer unit.
