Vehicle Tracking System Market Trends

  • Increasing demand for commercial vehicles is driving the market growth

Market CAGR is driven by the growing number of commercial vehicles, including buses, trucks, and vans, driving the market for vehicle tracking systems. Vehicles that are engaged in transporting men, material, or machinery- where on-time delivery can make a significant difference in cost and productivity- are prompting players to adopt GPS-tracking devices. School buses, city buses, state transport buses, cash vans, police petrol vans, cargo vans, courier pickup, radio taxis, delivery vans, and others are prospects for vehicle tracking systems. The growing demand for commercial vehicles is likely to expand the sales of GPS tracking devices owing to the utilization of GPS tracking devices for several benefits, including theft protection, usage-based insurance (UBI), and prevention of unauthorized usage. As commercial vehicle sales expand, the demand for vehicle tracking system also increases. These devices are used to track and manage vehicles in real time. The owners or enterprises efficiently utilize their resources, which assists them in ensuring vehicle safety.

Additionally, an increase in data privacy violations is the major reason discouraging end-user from utilizing vehicle tracking systems, as the data includes personal information, including driver and vehicle details and routes traveled are restraining the market growth. Furthermore, the growth in data privacy violations is controlling end-users from utilizing vehicle tracking systems, as the data includes personal information such as driver and vehicle details and the route pursued. Due to a shortage of cellular or wireless network connectivity, GPS and cellular-based trackers fail, and the R&D price connected with the system acts as a barrier for new market competitors.

Various companies and government authorities worldwide have developed a mobility-as-a-service model to decrease traffic and carbon emissions.

The hardware device and software are expected to assist in gaining insights regarding pick-ups, drop-offs, vehicle telematics, and payment activities.

For instance, in August 2020, Zoomcar launched 'Zoomcar Mobility Stack' (ZMS), a software stack for corporates and fleet owners to maintain track of vehicle position and drivers' behavior in real-time to stop rash driving and control vehicular damage. Moreover, the mobility services providers such as Lyft, Uber, Ola, DiDi, and others have announced their plans to introduce autonomous vehicles and robot taxis in their fleets. Therefore, the surge in the adoption of Mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) offers different opportunities for market expansion. Thus, driving the vehicle tracking system market revenue.

Vehicle Tracking System Industry Developments

January 2024: It is reported that the National Highways Authority of India is getting ready to install cutting-edge vehicle tracking technology by the first half of 2024. The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTI) is prepared to implement GPS-based toll collection and is getting ready to roll out the system. Anurag Jain, the secretary of the Roads Ministry, is believed to have said that pilot testing of the technology would begin on some routes, as stated by several media.

According to statements made by Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister for Road Transport, in December, the administration had said that it intended to implement the new GPS satellite-based toll collecting system over the whole country by March of the following year. Furthermore, Gadkari had brought attention to the fact that two pilot projects utilizing an automated number plate recognition system (ANPR cameras) had been carried out simultaneously. The purpose of these initiatives is to make it possible to collect tolls automatically without requiring cars to come to a full stop. The overall objective of this program is to reduce the amount of congestion that occurs on roads and to develop a system in which drivers are taxed according to the extent of the distance that they travel on highways.

At the core of the system is either a Global Positioning System (GPS) gadget installed in your car or an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera, as the name of the system implies. As you go down the road, the gadget will keep track of your movements and identify the locations at which you enter and depart tolled portions. The toll plazas that you have traversed are identified by the system based on the distance that you have traveled, and the costs are computed using this information. Because of this, the "one-size-fits-all" method of set tolls at booths is eliminated, which makes the situation more equitable for cars who travel shorter distances.

April 2022: Bosch and AWS collaborated to digitalize logistics. Bosch and Amazon Web Services (AWS), an American cloud provider, plan to improve efficiency and sustainability in the transportation and logistics sector.

December 2021: ORBCOMM Inc. announced the launch of an asset management solution for transportation, container, and heavy equipment. This new asset management solution was enabled by GT 1030 global LTE telematics device for tracking and monitoring assets.
