The GPS tracking device market was valued at USD 1.25 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.91% between 2017 and 2023. The base year considered for the study is 2016 and the forecast period is between 2017 and 2023. The advent of cellular technology reduced the service cost, while the decline in GNSS/GPS IC prices made inroads for cell phone industry, which provides the scale of economies to GNSS/GPS module supplier. Moreover, multi-GNSS modules enable simultaneous positioning from a minimum two satellite navigation systems, leading enhanced positioning accuracy, compared to standard GPS-only modules. Currently, the majority of GNSS modules can support all four major satellite navigation systems from a single hardware.

Market Dynamics

GPS Tracking Device Market

Growth of commercial vehicles

The growing number of commercial vehicles, such as trucks, buses, and vans, drive the market for GPS tracking devices. Vehicles engaged in the timely transportation of men, material, machinery, or money-where on time delivery can make a significant difference in cost and productivity-are prompting players to adopt GPS tracking devices. School buses, city and state transport buses, cash vans, cargo vans, police petrol vans, radio taxis, courier pickup and delivery vans, and others are prospects for vehicle tracking systems. The increasing sales of commercial vehicles would increase the adoption of GPS tracking devices. According to International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), sales of commercial vehicles is on an uptrend. By tracking and managing these vehicles in real time, enterprises can efficiently utilize their resources. GPS tracking devices also ensure the safety of vehicles. In case of an emergency, GPS devices help locate the ambulance and show the exact location from where a distress signal was received.

The GPS tracking device market is expected to cross 75 million shipments by 2023, and expected to grow in revenue term at CAGR of 12.91% between 2017 and 2023. The growth of this market is propelled by various factors such as increasing commercial vehicle sales, various government mandates such as electronic logging device (ELD), affordable price, high ROI, and vehicle theft protection.

The transportation & logistic industry accounted for the largest share of GPS tracking device market. The said industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. GPS tracking device is widely used in commercial vehicles such as trucks, trailers, buses, and light commercial vehicles for tracking purposes. According to International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the global commercial vehicle sales have surged by 3.27% and 4.37% in 2015 and 2016, respectively. This factor drives the deployment of GPS tracking of commercial vehicles, thereby driving the growth of transportation & logistics industry.

Advance tracker is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Advance tracker is professionally installed in vehicles, and cargo and container not only provides vehicle location but also share engine diagnosis and various parameters for temperature-controlled logistics. The information related to vehicle performance captured by these devices is valuable, and thus the adoption rate of these trackers is high as compared to other types of GPS trackers.

GPS tracking devices market for commercial vehicles held the largest market size in 2016. Deployment of GPS tracking device helps to track and monitor commercial vehicles such as trucks, buses, heavy commercial vehicles, and construction vehicles. Calamp Corp. (US), Orbocomm Inc. (US), Teltonika UAB (Lithuania), Queclink Wireless Solutions Co., Ltd. (China), Concox Information Technology Co., Ltd. (China), Atrack Technology Inc. (Taiwan), among others offer GPS tracking devices for commercial vehicles.

The European GPS tracking device market is a mature one and is expected to sustain its position in the coming years. Being the automotive manufacturing hub, various companies such as Teltonika UAB (Lithuania), Ruptela UAB (Lithuania), Neomatica LLC (Russia), and Box Telematics Ltd. (UK) are offering GPS tracking devices in the said market. In addition, various events, and conferences related to GPS tracking device are also driving the growth of the European market. APAC is expected to be the fastest-growing market in the overall GPS tracking device market during the forecast period. The major driving factors for the growth of the market in APAC are increased number of manufacturing facilities, aging infrastructure, and asset’s safety and security.

GPS Tracking Device Market

Transportation & Logistics

GPS tracking device is suitable for the logistics & transportation industry as it automates the workflow process and also ensures streamlined operations from material loading to the final delivery. This factor along with the growth of temperature-controlled logistics and taxi-hailing services especially in APAC is generating demand for GPS tracking devices. The global commercial vehicle sales have surged by 3.27% and 4.37% in 2015 and 2016. .This factor drives the deployment of GPS tracking of commercial vehicle, which in turn drive the growth of transportation and logistics industry.

Construction

Managing multiple projects is a complex job in the construction field. Efficient utilization of sources and timely serving of vehicles and construction equipment help to accomplish the work. Thus, monitoring vehicles and high-value construction assets make the job a bit simple. Therefore, GPS tracking devices play a significant role in tracking the construction assets such as construction tools, construction vehicles, and heavy machinery on the construction site. The device can be used to track bulldozers, dumpsters, snow plow blades, pile drivers, cold planers, and articulated haulers from construction sites. The safety, theft protection, and unauthorized usage are some of the major factors that are expected to drive the growth high-value assets.

Metals & Mining

It is quite difficult to use GPS tracking devices in a mining environment as GPS signals may get distracted by steep mountains and tunnels. However, GPS tracking device can be used in various vehicles used in the mining industry such as trucks and loaders. In November 2016, Government of Odisha (India) passed an order to install GPS tracking devices in vehicles used in mining areas. Without GPS tracking devices, these vehicles will not be granted permission for mineral transportation.

Critical questions the report answers:

  • Where will all these developments take the industry in the mid to long term?
  • Which region is leading in GPS tracking device market?

One of the key restraining factors for the GPS tracking device market is nonstandard products that are coming into the market.  To gain competitive advantage, some manufacturers are introducing low-cost GPS tracking devices in the market. These devices may lead to poor user experience because of substandard GPS tracking devices.

GPS tracking device market is highly fragmented, and it has a presence of many Chinese companies. The key market players such as Calamp Corp. (US) and Orbocomm Inc. (US) are focusing on strategies such as product launches, acquisitions, and collaborations to enhance their product offerings and expand their business.
