Global Crawler Dozers Market 2018-2022
About this market
Telematics utilizes a combination of informatics and telecommunication to transfer information from a remote location through the internet. The movements of an asset can be monitored on a computerized map through the use of GPS and onboard diagnostics in telematics. The growing need for real time monitoring of data such as tire pressure, speed, idling, and fuel is driving the demand for telematics. The maintenance costs can be reduced considerably by monitoring such activities from a remote location. Also, the utilization and security of equipment is improved by the usage of such features. The benefits and shorter payback period on investments of telematics and machine control will drive their adoption. This will boost the growth of crawler dozers market during the forecast period. Technavio’s analysts have predicted that the crawler dozers market will register a CAGR of about 7% by 2022.
