Indian telematics is one of the fastest emerging markets, primarily driven by spiralling fuel prices, increasing number of accidents/vehicle theft, demand for vehicle navigation, and the rising need to monitor fuel pilferage. The market is relatively old, but adoption rates have been low due to the lack of awareness. However, vehicle OEMs and telematics suppliers are upbeat about demand as awareness is on the rise with government involvement for passenger safety. Rising fuel prices and wafer-thin profit margins in the transportation industry will help fleet operators gain a competitive advantage by vehicle tracking, route calculation, fuel pilferage checks, and other telematics offerings. Market growth will also be driven by government initiatives such as the recently announced ₹12,000 crore ($2.4 billion) investment to upgrade police forces, including the consolidation of security grids in all key cities.
