The increasing internet penetration within the Asia Pacific region is another factor accelerating the adoption of telematics in the Asia Pacific region. According to GSMA Intelligence, in 2022, 44% of the region’s population is said to be connected through the internet. With 4G communication dominantly used in the region and accelerating the adoption of 5G networks, telematics providers are developing 4G enabled modules with enhanced connectivity capabilities.

For instance, in January 2023, TELTONIKA announced the launch of the FMC650 model, a professional category GPS tracker device having 4G LTE Cat 1 network coverage. The devices have a separate module that gathers GNSS data and dual channel L1 to L5 network support, enabling more accurate vehicle tracking the telematics model is best suited for commercial vehicles and is equipped with 16 MB of internal flash memory, capable of storing 8 times more volume of data as compared to the current models. Vehicle manufacturers operating in the region are concentrating on building standardized platforms and integrating telematics and infotainment systems solutions.

Another major factor supporting the growth of the market in the Asia Pacific countries is the government regulations to include tracking devices in public transit vehicles to build a robust intelligent transportation system. For instance, the Automotive Industry Standards Committee (AISC) under the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. (India) has formulated a set of standards known as AIS 140. The AIS 140 mandate requires public transport vehicles operating in the country to be equipped with tracking devices, panic buttons, and video surveillance.

The AIS 140 standards motive was to establish a country-wide intelligent transportation system that aids vehicle and driver behavior monitoring, ensuring commuters’ safety and enhancing public transportation operation through route optimization and traffic management. Telematics plays a pivotal part in the development of robust public transportation systems, as telematics will enable improved and coordinated management of buses and other public transport vehicles by keeping track of their locations, fuel levels, routes, and distance travelled.

Even though telematics adoption in countries such as India, Vietnam, and Thailand are still nascent, the government regulations for vehicle insurance, electric vehicle adoption, vehicle safety norms, and the development of smart transport network is supported by telematics application across passenger and commercial vehicles. With most of the vehicles operating in Asia covered under insurance, telematics insurance is anticipated to present new growth opportunities for the telematics market, as major insurance providers in the region are providing vehicle usage-based telematics insurance. Insurance telematics delivers precise data regarding driver behavior and vehicle operations to determine the risk of insuring a particular driver.

Telematics insurance provides lower premiums, more personal coverage, and increased safety. Thus, prompting major insurance service providers to launch usage-based automotive telematics services. For instance, in July 2022, Edelweiss General Insurance announced the launch of Switch, an on-demand motor insurance under the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority sandbox initiative. Switch is a mobile telematics insurance scheme that detects vehicle motions and automatically activates the insurance when the vehicle is driven. The usage-based model of the policy considers parameters such as the distance traveled and the driving quality to calculate the vehicles' premium.

Most Asia Pacific countries lack the adequate infrastructure required to enable features like real-time traffic for navigation systems, both in terms of telecommunication infrastructure and traffic data gathering is a major factor hindering the adoption of telematics in the Asia Pacific telematics. Furthermore, the risk of data theft and invasion of privacy is another major concern hindering market growth.

Besides software, hardware, and communications networks, vehicle telematics involves establishing service centers to ensure consistent customer assistance, which requires substantial initial investments. Therefore, due to high initial investment, the automotive telematics uptake in key Asia Pacific nations is projected to be hampered. Governments, automotive manufacturers, and telematics services providers in the region are constantly working together to address such problems by allocating resources to build the necessary infrastructure, introducing data laws, and introducing subsidies to manufacture components at lower costs.

Technology Insights

The embedded technology segment dominated the Asia Pacific automotive telematics market with the largest revenue share exceeding 70% in 2022. The increasing integration of wireless communication in commercial vehicles such as buses and trucks, government policies mandating the installation of vehicle tracking systems and safety, and the growing logistics transportation in the region are driving manufacturers to develop embedded telematics.
