Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed global commercial vehicle industry and offers its findings in its comprehensive research report, "Global Commercial Vehicle Industry 2012-2017:Trend, Profit, and Forecast Analysis."APAC had the highest growth during 2006-2011 and continues to dominate the industry; however, North America is forecast to replace it over 2012-2017, driven by positive economic developments.
