For this reason, many commercial vehicles are equipped with GPS devices. Sales of commercial vehicles are therefore increasing and supporting the GPS tracking device industry. In addition, it is also predicted that the growing influence of the e-commerce sector will increase the demand for tracking systems in light and medium-duty vehicles. Hence, all these factors will benefit the growth of the market throughout the forecast period.

The leading players on the market compete with a wide range of innovative offers in order to remain competitive on the market. The figure shows the percentage of sales of some of the leading companies in the market. The leading market players adopt different strategies to meet the demand from the various industries. The main development strategies in the market are acquisitions, as well as partnerships and collaborations.

Increasing use of GPS based tracking and surveillance in various marine applications

GPS data is increasingly used by seafarers and oceanographers for buoy placement and underwater surveys. Effective management of seaport facilities is enhanced through the integration of geographic information software (GIS) and GPS technology. With intelligent boating technology and an integrated GPS tracking system coupled with international LTE cellular connectivity, many industry participants have adopted next-generation connected boating devices. It is noted that these technological developments will propel the market forward in the coming years.

Market Inhibiting Factors
Poor user experience due to the use of non-standard products and environmental factors

Environmental factors such as tall structures, dense vegetation, cloud cover, rain, and thick foliage can weaken the GPS signal. This occasionally results in delays in reporting or follow-up. A clean line of sight (LoS) between the satellite and the receiver is necessary for the GPS tracker to work well in many devices or systems; alternatively, the signal may suffer. Poor consumer experience as well as poor quality are also the result of the cheap and inferior GPS trackers that many vendors and manufacturers sell to gain a competitive advantage. The market for GPS tracking devices is constrained by these limitations.

Enter Outlook

Based on type, the GPS tracking devices market is segmented into standalone trackers, OBD devices and advanced trackers. On-board diagnostics segment accounted for a significant revenue share of GPS tracking devices market in 2021. Many functions are available with on-board diagnostics (OBD) trackers. It is better suited for monitoring vehicles and is easier to set up and use. The tracker continuously monitors the vehicle once installed. Internet access enables sporadic monitoring of vehicle movements. The OBD GPS tracker device can save the recorded location data and download it to any internet connected device.

Deployment Outlook

On the basis of deployment, the GPS tracking devices market is segmented into Commercial Vehicles and Cargo & Containers. The commercial vehicle segment recorded the largest revenue share in the GPS tracking device market in 2021. The segment is growing because commercial GPS tracking is becoming very convenient for companies that employ cars and is gaining popularity. Users of GPS devices for commercial vehicles can improve business operations by knowing the precise position of vehicles at all times. Adding a GPS tracker that interacts with mapping software improves dispatching, routing and safety, reduces fuel costs and expands the range of tasks that can be completed.

Industry Outlook

By industry, the GPS tracking devices market is segmented into Transportation & Logistics, Construction, Government, Oil & Gas, Metals & Mining, and Others. Construction segment achieved remarkable growth rate in GPS tracking device market in 2021. Construction companies can use GPS to manage expensive machine types such as towers, mobile cranes, generators, compressors, service vehicles and heavy trucks. As a result, it has proven to be a crucial business tool in this sector. In addition, it is used for all construction-related assets. As a result, the demand in this industry is growing and driving the growth of the segment.
