Report Highlights

Passenger vehicles held the largest market share of 39.8% in 2019 and will expand further at the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027. This is attributed to the rising number of fleet operators in several developing regions. In addition, the rising inclination of fleet operators to provide enhanced user experience at varied price points is anticipated to boost the market growth in the passenger vehicles segment. Furthermore, passenger vehicles are also popular among medium- and small-size businesses since they usually serve the purpose of minivans or pool vehicles to complete everyday jobs of businesses, thereby resulting in the increased demand for a vehicle tracking system in passenger vehicles.

This is attributed to several factors, such as accurate budgets, monitoring engine runtime, locating stolen equipment, field service management, saving on insurance, monitor PTO events, and prevent vehicle misuse, among others. Furthermore, the aviation segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period. GPS tracking in aircraft ensures location tracking in case of an accident or any casualty. For instance, according to the Federal Aviation Administration of the U.S. Department of Transportation, all aircraft are supposed to be integrated with air traffic controllers, which will ensure efficient tracking of aircraft and will also provide more insights to the pilots in the cockpit. This upgrade in technology and infrastructure is expected to be a step closer to the next-generation air transportation system.

The dual-mode segment is estimated to grow at a significant rate from 2020 to 2027. This is attributed to the presence of several companies that offer both GPRS- and GPS-based vehicle tracking systems. For instance, Calamp Corp. is engaged in offering both Cellular and GPS-based devices. The dual-mode devices are easy to install, cheap in price, and are the reliable links between the application servers and tracking devices.

The active segment held the largest market share of more than 82% in 2019. This is attributed to its ability to track real-time data via both satellite and cellular networks. Furthermore, even though the system is complex in nature it offers enhanced benefits as compared to its counterpart.

The software segment held the highest share of 65.% in 2019 and will register the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027. This is due to the rising number of companies offering software-based systems for vehicle tracking, wherein the system can be directly installed on the user’s machine thereby eliminating the need for hardware. Furthermore, the fact that the software provides several benefits, such as driver behavior monitoring, fleet analytics, and reporting, vehicle diagnostics, and performance measurement, will support segment growth. Rising consumer inclination and requirement primarily for vehicle diagnostics, fleet analytics, and reporting, and driver behavior monitoring is anticipated to drive the segment growth.

North America held the largest market share of 31.87% in 2019 and will register steady growth over the forecast period. The growing concerns of vehicle safety, security, and emission have strongly influenced the transportation industry. Governments of various developed nations have acknowledged these concerns and subsequently developed safety programs and introduced stringent norms. For instance, the U.S. government developed a ‘National Safety Program’ for its General Services Administration (GSA) fleet. Additionally, in 2015, it announced a tactical plan to develop (ITS) over a period of five years. Such active initiatives promoted the widespread adoption of smart technologies in the field of fleet management.
