July 28,2022

Refrigerated truck is closed van for transporting frozen or fresh-keeping goods, and it is a segment in the field of special-purpose vehicles in the commercial vehicle industry. According to the data of the auto thinker platform, in the first half of 2022, a total of 24,861 units refrigerated trucks were sold in the terminal market, down by 41.7% year-on-year.
 

According to the data of the auto thinker, from 2018 to 2021, refrigerated trucks have maintained a "continuous increase" trend, but the sales declined for the first time in the first six months of this year.
 
  2019 2020 2021 Jan to Jun 2022
Sales (unit) 49600 72982 77783 24861
YOY growth % 21.5 47.1 6.6 -41.7
 
Reasons for the decline in sales can be summed up as follows:

In the first half of this year, China's economic growth rate was only 2.5%, a decrease of 5.6 percentage points from 8.1% in the same period last year.

In the first half of this year, the epidemic broke out in many places, and the transportation of refrigerated trucks was hindered. In addition, the production and operation of supply-side vehicle companies were affected by the epidemic, and some orders in progress could not be delivered in time.

In the first half of this year, the freight market was very sluggish, and the oil price continued to rise, so the demand for refrigerated trucks in the end market decreased.
 

According to auto thinker platform and terminal licensing information, the monthly sales of refrigerated trucks in the first half of 2022 and the year-on-year ratio:
 
 
  Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jan to Jun
Monthly sale (unit) 3246 4583 4397 3370 4109 5156 24861
YOY growth % 0.34 45.1 0.22 -65.8 -58.1 -47.9 -41.7
Proportion % 13.06 18.4 17.7 13.6 16.5 20.74 100.0
 

To sum up, the sales volume of refrigerated trucks in the first half of the year showed consecutive increase year-on-year in the first quarter, but consecutive decline year-on-year in the second quarter. This is mainly because that the first quarter was not affected by the epidemic, and the national economic growth rate reached 4.8%, which was only 0.4% in the second quarter.
 

According to the data of the auto thinker, the sales, year-on-year and proportion statistics of various power refrigerated trucks in the first half of 2022 are as follows:
 
  Diesel Gasoline Electric Hybrid power Others Total
Sales from Jan to Jun 2022 (unit) 20794 3110 763 185 9 24861
Sales from Jan to Jun 2021 (unit) 36803 5139 541 198 2 42643
YOY growth % -43.5 -39.5 41.0 -6.6 350.0 -41.7
Sales proportion from Jan to Jun 2022 % 83.6 12.5 3.1 0.74 0.036 100.0
Sales proportion from Jan to Jun 2021 % 86.3 12.1 1.26 0.46 0.0047 100.0
YOY in-/decrease in proportion % -2.7 0.4 1.84 0.28 0.0313 0.00
 
Overall, diesel refrigerated trucks account for more than 80%, maintaining the absolute main body of the current market, but the proportion is shrinking year-on-year. Although the proportion of pure electric vehicles is not large, but it has the largest year-on-year growth, indicating that pure electric vehicles have a better development prospect.
