Market Overview

The Global Vehicle Tracking System Market size was valued at USD 21.94 billion in 2022 and is estimated to reach USD 66.96 billion by 2031, with a CAGR of 13.2 % during the forecast period 2023–2031.

A vehicle tracking system monitors and tracks the activity of vehicles using cellular networks or global positioning satellites (GPS). Remote vehicle tracking and monitoring, vehicle maintenance, vehicle diagnosis, fuel management, route optimization, driver management, and safety management are all part of the package. The GPS, GSM/GPRS, digital maps, and specialized software in vehicle tracking systems form a closed loop.

A tracking module continuously collects GPS coordinates that indicate the vehicle's current location. The coordinates are instantly transmitted to the users' computers using cellular data service. Customers can view their vehicles on road maps by logging into the software, similar to in-dash and handheld GPS-based navigation systems. The location function of a vehicle tracking system is a fundamental and extensive application. In addition to vehicle tracking, a vehicle tracking system has fleet management applications such as vehicle security, maintenance, fleet visibility, fuel management, asset tracking, insurance cost reduction, transit tracking, weather updates, and traffic updates.

Market Dynamics

What Factors Drives The Global Vehicle Tracking System Market?

Vehicle tracking systems provide significant benefits such as increased operational efficiency, vehicle monitoring, vehicle maintenance, driver tracking, cost savings, and safety and security, which drives global demand for the industry. As a result of expanding government policies to increase emission-free transportation options, the growing popularity of battery-powered vehicles around the world is increasing the demand for electric vehicles among the general population. Furthermore, the growing adoption of 5G technologies, the expanding ICT industry, and the growing use of mobility-as-a-service drive the vehicle tracking systems market trend. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of self-driving cars among high-end customers is expected to increase demand for vehicle tracking systems. As a result, increased demand for current rechargeable and self-driving vehicles will drive the global vehicle tracking systems market size during the forecast period.

The growing demand for fleet telematics solutions in logistics and transportation also propels the global vehicle tracking system market forward. Several government organizations have issued regulations governing the installation of tracking systems in both passenger and commercial vehicles, with the safety of drivers and passengers in mind. Furthermore, as car rental and leasing services become more popular in developing countries, rental companies are encouraged to install trackers in their fleets. Furthermore, for accurate results, cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) and autonomous vehicle technologies rely heavily on global positioning system (GPS)-based location trackers. Such factors are propelling the global adoption of vehicle tracking systems.

What are the Restraints for The Global Vehicle Tracking System Market?

Environmental factors frequently lead to ambiguous communication, which leads to a poor user experience. As a result, the adoption of vehicle tracking systems is limited, hampering the market growth. These systems use GPS to track the location and route of the vehicle. Furthermore, a direct line of sight between the satellite and the receiver is required. An object in the direct path can diverge the GPS signal and cause a poor connection. GPS signals can be weakened by various environmental factors, including steep hillsides, dense trees, tall buildings, and even heavy cloud coverage. As a result of geographical limitations, these devices frequently produce delayed results. This factor, to some extent, limits the growth of the vehicle tracking system market.

What are the Future Opportunities for The Global Vehicle Tracking System Market?

Global demand for automobile monitoring systems is being driven by the expansion of the goods and passenger transportation business, which ride-hailing companies, car rental companies, and the adoption of app-based transportation services are leading. Trackers can provide fleet managers with information on the vehicle's current operating state, such as speed, door lock and unlock, and other engine metrics, allowing them to track the vehicle. Vehicle tracking systems are becoming increasingly important for transportation companies as car rental agencies grow worldwide. Booking apps make renting a car more accessible to the general public. These apps make car rental costs visible to the public and include features such as price comparison, vehicle type selection, and passenger limit.

Regional Analysis

The global market for Vehicle Tracking Systems has been segmented based on geography into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and LAMEA.

In 2021, North America accounted for the largest market share at 32.4% and was anticipated to maintain its growth rate throughout the forecast period. The emergence of intelligent systems has resulted in the adoption of fleet management technologies. Moreover, rising concerns about carbon emissions and a growing awareness of vehicle fleet and cargo technology influence the market. The government's mandatory safety standards are also driving market expansion.

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 17.4% over the forecast period. The market's growth is driven by technological advancements in networking, a surge in the sales of commercial and passenger vehicles, stringent government regulations, the increasing popularity of the e-commerce sector in the region, and expanding trade activities. In addition, the increasing acceptance of technologies such as the cloud, IoT, connected cars, and autonomous vehicles in the region is driving market expansion.

During the forecast period, the European vehicle tracking device market is expected to grow at a significant CAGR. The growth in this region is primarily due to the government's increased investment in advanced technologies to improve public transportation. For example, in May 2016, the UK government's Crown Commercial Service and Trading Fund signed a vehicle telematics agreement to develop smart transportation. This initiative would aid in improving on-road safety and efficiency and monitoring and tracking fuel consumption, vehicle tracking, and driver behavior. This agreement was completed in collaboration with various organizations, including healthcare, law enforcement, central and local government transportation, and a wide range of small and medium-sized businesses.
