C.J. Driscoll & Associates has released a comprehensive report covering the Chinese Commercial Telematics market. This is the first of a new series of C.J. Driscoll & Associates reports on Global Commercial Telematics Markets.

China has the fastest growing fleet market in the world, and one of the fastest growing commercial telematics markets. Today, over five million GPS and Beidou (BDS) tracking units are used to monitor fleet vehicles, heavy equipment and other assets. These devices include vehicle-installed units as well as location-capable smartphones and portable computers used to manage mobile workers. The report projects growth of the Chinese commercial telematics market through 2018, including units in service and revenues.

This comprehensive report assesses the factors that are contributing to the rapid growth of commercial telematics in China, which include an urgent need to improve logistics efficiency. It also assesses the role of the Chinese government (central, provincial, and municipal) in pressing for increased use of commercial telematics to help reduce unauthorized use of government vehicles, enhance safety in public transportation and the transport of hazardous goods, and reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions in densely populated urban environments.

The 110-page report includes extensive statistics on the addressable fleet market size and rate of growth, along with GPS and BeiDou market penetration estimates for major fleet segments. It analyzes the notable differences between Chinese fleet tracking configurations and features, versus those of western markets.

The China Commercial Telematics Market Study includes detailed profiles of 38 major commercial telematics solution providers, developed through direct interviews of company personnel. Profiles include company background, target markets, key features, estimated installed base, and available information on hardware and service pricing. Among the companies profiled in the report are a number of overseas companies that are active in the Chinese market.

The study was directed by Clement J. Driscoll, founder and president of C.J. Driscoll & Associates, who has over 20 years of experience in marketing, research and consulting in GPS and wireless products and services. C.J. Driscoll reports include widely used studies of the U.S. commercial telematics market and global markets.
