Executive summary

Berg Insight’s definition of the off-highway vehicle market includes various equipment such asspecialised heavy machinery, lighter equipment and other vehicles used in the construction,mining, agriculture and forestry sectors. Off-highway vehicle telematics refers to telematicshardware and associated software solutions deployed for remote monitoring andmanagement of fleets of machinery and equipment used in these sectors. Early initiativesamong the heavy equipment OEMs started to emerge already in the 1990s and manymanufacturers followed suit in the 2000s. Today, most equipment manufacturers haveintroduced some type of telematics offerings for their customers, either as a result of in-housedevelopment or through collaborative efforts involving third-party technology partnerspowering telematics solutions commonly under the OEMs’ brands. A wide range ofaftermarket providers have entered the off-highway vehicle telematics space, offeringsolutions for various assets including multi-brand equipment fleets. Solutions available on themarket enable the delivery of vehicle management, operator management and safetymanagement applications linking off-highway machines and enterprise IT systems.

Berg Insight estimates that the global installed base of active off-highway vehicle telematicssystems reached 3.3 million units in 2018. This includes connected units deployed on variousoff-highway vehicles across the construction, mining, agriculture and forestry sectors. Theconstruction sector accounts for the largest share, driven by OEM telematics systems offeredby heavy equipment manufacturers. Agriculture and mining moreover each account for asimilar number of connected units deployed on machines and vehicles used in agriculturaland mining operations respectively. The remainder is represented by the forestry sectorincluding telematics systems fitted to various forestry equipment. Growing at a compoundannual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.8 percent, the active installed base of off-highway vehicletelematics systems across all sectors is forecasted to reach 7.5 million units worldwide in2023. The North American market is estimated to be slightly larger than the European. TheRest of World is moreover estimated to represent more than half of the global installed baseof off-highway vehicle telematics systems.

The top-10 equipment manufacturers offering telematics together account for more than 70percent of the total number of off-highway vehicle telematics systems in use across theconstruction, mining, agriculture and forestry sectors globally. Berg Insight ranks Caterpillarand Komatsu as the leading off-highway vehicle telematics providers. Caterpillar is well on itsway to achieve its target of 1 million connected assets this year. Other major manufacturerswith installed bases of more than 100,000 units include Hitachi Construction Machinery, JCB,Deere & Company and Volvo Construction Equipment. Additional players having installedbases of off-highway vehicle telematics units in the tens of thousands include DoosanInfracore, Liebherr, CNH Industrial, CLAAS Group and Hyundai Construction Equipment.The aftermarket for off-highway vehicle telematics is expected to shrink as the equipmentmanufacturers continue to introduce standard fitment on additional machine models and atthe same time increase the length of free software subscriptions. Arguments such as theOEMs’ weak spot being the inability to adequately serve the needs of mixed multi-brand fleetsare becoming less valid thanks to initiatives such as the AEMP telematics standard whichmakes it possible for a fleet operator to collect data from different brands and manage it all inits software interface of choice. There are however promising opportunities for telematicsplayers that partner with the OEMs, either as end-to-end full-service providers or – in manycases maybe more realistically – working alongside OEM personnel to optimise thetelematics functionality. In addition to the standard-fitted systems and time-limitedsubscriptions commonly included for free, the telematics players can also benefit fromupselling of more advanced functionality. There are already several notable examples ofpartner-powered and co-developed offerings in the equipment OEM telematics space. In linewith trends noted in adjacent markets such as fleet management for commercial vehicles,Berg Insight anticipates that the partner strategy will continue to grow in popularity among theequipment manufacturers at the expense of in-house telematics development efforts. This canespecially be the case for equipment manufacturers that do not yet offer OEM telematics totheir customers. An increasing number of players such as vendors focused on on-roadvehicle fleet management are moreover expected to diversify into telematics for various offhighwayvehicles driven by the popularisation of the Internet of Transportation Things (IoTT).This enables customers to monitor and manage a wide range of diverse assets on the sameplatform.
