Global Truck Fleet Management System Revenues Could Surpass $27Bn in 2018

"The commercial telematics industry continues to see strong growth with fleet management system vendors increasing their installed base of vehicles under management. While until recently reaching the milestone of 100,000 subscriptions was exceptional, more than 20 vendors have now exceeded this number with Masternaut, TrafficMaster, Telogis and TomTom even having passed the 200,000 mark and Fleetmatics, Trimble and Qualcomm the 300,000 mark," says ABI Research vice president and practice director Dominique Bonte.

With penetration levels in the trucking segment already quite high, further growth in this market will be fueled by the following evolutions:

"¢ Growing number and importance of factory-installed solutions from truck OEMs such as Daimler (FleetBoard), DAF Trucks, the Scania Group, Renault, Iveco, and Volvo Trucks mainly focused around diagnostics, maintenance and safety.

"¢ Vendors focusing on specialist segments such as heavy equipment (Navman Wireless), Bus & Coach (Mix Telematics, GreenRoad) and trailer tracking.

"¢ Vendors such as Fleetmatics and TomTom targeting smaller fleets and non-trucking segments such as delivery, utility, service and government fleets with low-cost solutions based on SaaS and convergence technologies.

"¢ FMS vendors expanding internationally into developing regions such as Latin America, Asia-Pacific (China) and Russia which are expected to experience significant growth with mandates as an important market driver.

"¢ Overall maturing and consolidating fleet management market with growing awareness about the benefits of fleet management technology to monitor and improve customer service related metrics such as on-time delivery and satisfaction levels and as a strategic business intelligence and management tool.
