Only 2200 SCR-equipped trucks delivered in Q1

Christopher Goodfellow - 1 June 2010

While OEMs have reported that orders for trucks equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) were healthy in the first quarter of 2010, only around 2200 SCR trucks were actually delivered to customer.

The data is part of recent research conducted by industry analysts at Integer Research, who estimate that these trucks would have consumed around 100,000 gallons of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) in the first three months of the year.

Many of the sales figures reported by the country's OEMs, including Daimler's news that it had received 10,000 orders for SCR-equipped trucks so far this year, are still in the order book or the factory.

Alistair Wallace, a senior emissions analyst from Integer Research, said: "These SCR-truck delivery figures explain why, aside from filling the sales pipeline and getting Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) on to the shelves of the nation's garages, Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) suppliers have been reporting lower than expected volumes."

For further analysis of the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) market in North America and the AdBlue market in Europe, Asia and Latin America, see the latest edition of Integer's AdBlue and DEF Monitor.
