On the basis of vehicle type, the market is segmented into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. The passenger vehicle segment held a significant market share of more than 75% in 2022. Increasing consumers’ inclination towards luxury, comfortable, and secure cars with remote operation is contributing to a major share of passenger vehicles. Through the integration of the advanced automotive telematics system in vehicles, locking & unlocking, engine start-stop capabilities, and temperature control is possible, these features enhance the level of comfort thus the segment is expected to witness a high market share during the forecast period.
The commercial vehicle segment is expected to witness significant CAGR growth of 19.1% in the market in the year 2022. There is rising adoption of automotive telematics systems in the long distance or cross-country trucks to track down their locations, internal vehicle system, and speed. Besides, collection, organization, and report formation of the driver breaking statistics, fuel economy, hours-in-service, and idle time aids in monitoring the driver behavior which is widely used by the insurance companies is contributing to the segmental growth.
On the basis of sales channel, the market is segmented into the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) and aftermarket. The OEM segment holds a share of more than 65% in the market, in the year 2022. Increasing automobile manufacturers’ emphasis on integrating advanced telematics systems in upcoming vehicles to align them with the insurance premium companies and improve driver and passenger safety is contributing to a high share of the segment.
The aftermarket segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 15.6%, during the forecast period. The easy and quick installation of automotive telematics systems to reduce fuel consumption, minimize labor costs, and improve vehicle safety is driving segmental growth. As with the usage of the fleet management system, it’s easier to find routes which reduces the time involved in determining the optimal routes thus improving the overall fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Further, during the idle time of the vehicle, the telematics system can remotely shut down the vehicle which aids in avoiding fuel waste.
On the basis of application, the market is segmented into information & navigation, safety & security, fleet management, insurance telematics, and others. The fleet management segment held the highest share of about 33% in 2022, in the market. Fleet management system provides cost-effective and productive services such as GPS vehicle tracking, driving behavior analysis, fleet alarms, route planning and monitoring, fuel management to consumers, automobile manufacturer, and insurance companies thus, they are widely deployed in the automobile market.
