Global Commercial Telematics Market 2017-2021

About Commercial Telematics

Telematics is defined as the automated system designed for vehicles that incorporate communication systems for real-time information transfer to achieve efficient solutions. Auto manufacturers have diverse options for online connectivity in vehicles to deliver two-way communication. These options include embedded telematics, tethered telematics, and integrated smartphone telematics. The automobile industry has significantly transformed from mechanical or hydraulic control to accommodate the rapidly growing computer-based control systems during the last two decades. The addition of sensor-based intelligent vehicle functions is enabling in-vehicle digital systems. Telematics has three capabilities, namely two-way communications (wireless), location technology (geographic position), as well as a computing platform that controls automotive electronic systems. Telematics technology also has a decisive impact on automotive electronics systems such as automotive control systems, x-by-wire, and intelligent vehicle systems.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial telematics market to decline at a CAGR of 18.42% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Telematics Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial telematics market: MiX Telematics, TomTom Telematics, Trimble, and Verizon.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Actsoft, AirIQ, Ctrack, Daimler FleetBoard, Ituran Group, KORE Wireless Group, Masternaut, Octo Telematics (acquired by RENOVA GROUP), Omnitracs (acquired by Astrata Group), Teletrac Navman Group, Traceon, Trakm8, and Webtech Wireless.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is advanced analytics on telematics data to reduce the severity risks. Customers are reluctant to use connected features in their vehicles due to the lack of trust regarding data privacy and also the risk of cyber-attacks. Companies have started applying advanced analytics to telematics data to attain transparency. Automotive companies have gained the opportunity to understand their customers in a better way and deliver personalized solutions in a completely connected environment. Telematics enables control and understanding of recall issues, which could potentially cost OEMs billions of dollars. OEMs partnering with telecoms service providers are expected to gain huge profits. Cloud-based solutions play a vital role in developing solutions that include over-the-air (OTA) software updates, infotainment, security monitoring, vehicle health checks, and UBI.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Globalization of the telematics supply chain. Global trade activities have increased the fragmentation of logistics and production centers, creating new markets for commercial vehicle telematics. Supply chains have to be broken up into multiple stages with an increase in manufacturing costs in developed countries and the continued search for low-cost sources. Assembly operations are outsourced to countries, such as China, where the manufacturing costs are lower to reduce costs. The resulting need for the efficient transportation of assembled goods between various supply points increases demand for commercial vehicle telematics systems.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Fleet tracking prices. Hidden costs for the application of telematics solutions could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. Fleet providers levy roaming charges for vehicles that go beyond the country’s borders. Companies will also charge in situations such as vehicle replacement and end-contractual equipment termination. Moreover, perpetual licensing involves very high initial costs that customer must pay upfront. The initial investment includes the license fee, setup and installation cost, as well as the cost of customization and integration with existing systems. Integration or customization is very expensive. In some cases, it can be more expensive than the telematics device or the license fees itself.
