C.J. Driscoll & Associates has released a comprehensive report on the Mexican market for telematics systems and service, including both GPS fleet tracking systems and telematics solutions for personal cars. The report concludes that the commercial telematics market in Mexico accounts for over one million units in service. While this market is very fragmented, with no single solution provider accounting for more than a 5% market share, the consumer stolen vehicle recovery (SVR) and telematics market is far more concentrated, with a few providers accounting for two-thirds of the units in service.

For-hire and private trucking fleets constitute the largest market for GPS fleet tracking solutions in Mexico. However, a number of other fleet markets segments are emerging, including government agencies, public safety, private security companies, public transit, and taxi. Government regulations and policies may bring about significant growth in several of these segments. As discussed in the report, security-related features are a top priority for most GPS fleet tracking solutions sold in the Mexican market. However, features for enhancing fleet productivity and efficiency, as well as monitoring driver performance, have also become increasingly important.

The 148-page report includes extensive statistics on the addressable market size and telematics penetration for a wide range of fleet categories. The growth of vehicle manufacturing in Mexico is covered in depth, along with analysis of OEM telematics programs and partners. Government registration and monitoring of telematics suppliers is also examined.

The report includes profiles of 24 Mexican-based commercial telematics solution providers and 13 overseas suppliers active in the Mexican market. Profiles of the leading suppliers of SVR/telematics solutions for the consumer market are also included, as are profiles of the leading suppliers of white-labeled telematics software platforms, which are used by many Mexican telematics solution providers. Supplier profiles include company background, target markets, key software features, available hardware and service pricing, and estimated units in service.

Estimates of the current size of both the GPS fleet tracking and consumer SVR/telematics markets are provided in the report, including units in service and estimated revenues. Also included are projections of units in service and revenue growth through 2019.

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. The C.J. Driscoll U.S. Mobile Resource Management Systems Market Study has, for many years, been the most widely used report covering the U.S. commercial telematics market. In addition, the 2010-11 Latin American Vehicle Tracking Systems Market Study is the most comprehensive report published to date on the entire Latin American commercial and consumer telematics market.
