European commercial use of In-Vehicle Telematics to triple by 2016
August 09, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
The number of active fleet management systems is set to grow 17.9 percent a year from 2.5 million units at the end of 2011 to 5.7 million by 2016 says new research from Berg Insights.
The research suggests that the European fleet management market has entered a growth period that will last for several years to come, though individual markets may suffer temporary setbacks, depending on the local economic developments. The penetration rate in the total population of non-privately owned commercial vehicles is estimated to increase from 8.8 percent in 2011 to 20.1 percent in 2016.
Commercial vehicle fleets play an essential role in the European economy. According to official statistics, there were 35.5 million commercial vehicles in use in EU23+2 in 2008. The 6.2 million medium and heavy trucks accounted for more than 75 percent of all inland transports, forming a € 250 billion ($308 billion US) industry. Approximately 700,000 buses and coaches stood for 9.3 percent of all passenger kilometres. Last but not least, the greater part of the 28.6 million light commercial vehicles (LCV) in Europe was used by mobile workers and for activities such as distribution of goods and parcels.
At the same time a new market forecast projects that the global automotive embedded telematics market will grow at a 32.80% CAGR from 2011 to 2015. One of the key factors for this growth is the numerous benefits offered by automotive embedded telematics to end-user as well as automobile manufacturers. The global automotive embedded telematics market has also been witnessing the decrease in the average price of OEM automotive embedded telematics. However, issues related to data security are acting as a barrier to the growth.
