Outlook of the global commercial telematics market

Telematics is an automated system designed for vehicles that contain communication systems for real-time information transfer. Embedded telematics, tethered telematics, and integrated smartphone telematics are examples of some automated systems that are used by vehicle manufacturers. The growing demand for better vehicle fuel efficiency and safety in vehicles will spur the prospects for growth in this market. The utilization of telematics in vehicles will improve the driver’s behavior, reduce fuel consumption, improve driver safety, and enable cost savings. Also, the ability of telematics to send ad hoc alerts to drivers when a journey's risk score is high will result in its augmented usage during the predicted period. A comprehensive market study carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global market for commercial telematics will grow at an impressive CAGR of more than 27% until 2020.

The growing availability of free telematics services is an important factor that will drive the prospects for growth in this market. Recently, it has been observed that the advent of free services, such as content upgrades, will help to drive the sale of telematics systems among the clients. Vehicle OEMs are promoting this technology by offering free subscriptions to new car buyers. Brands such as Audi are also launching cloud-based telematics services that will facilitate the customization of service packages to meet their customer’s demands. Also, some car manufacturers have also started launching app stores that will enable car owners to download apps directly to the in-car infotainment systems.
