Overview of the global motorcycle e-call market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the motorcycle e-Call market to grow exponentially at a CAGR of around 212% by 2021.The key driver responsible for this growth is the rising number of motorcycle collisions causing fatalities over the past few years. The lack of protection for the rider and the vehicle is one of the primary reasons for such high fatality conversion rates. In addition to normal crashes, improper lane changing also results in severe injuries or fatalities to motorcyclists. Improper lane changes can be life threatening for motorcyclists as the driver in the other vehicle may not respond favorably to the unsafe and unindicated lane change attempts by the motorcyclists. In such a scenario, the e-Call system reduces the service response time thereby reducing the risk of conversion of accidents into fatalities.    

One of the latest trends gaining traction in this market is the development of development of intelligent e-Call systems.  The demand for a better and efficient e-Call system is compelling the major players in the market to develop intelligent e-Call systems. Companies in the e-Call market are trying to build a system that does not depend on the user's smartphone for communicating an emergency signal to the call centre. Instead, the embedded mobile connection module and location detection triggers the rescue chain during an emergency.
