Shipments of Aftermarket and OEM Telematics Hardware Reached 106 Million Units n 2022

Telematics is a broad term that may be applied to a wide range of vehicle connectivity solutions. The publisher's definition of a telematics system in this report is an automatic system designed for passenger cars and commercial vehicles that incorporates some form of cellular communications. The connected car has been a major trend in the automotive industry for many years now. All of the world’s leading carmakers have now launched mass-market connectivity services in key regions. The OEM initiatives can be seen as competition for aftermarket solutions, but there is still a growing demand for different forms of aftermarket telematics services. The addressable market for aftermarket telematics solutions is significant. At the end of 2021, there were an estimated 1.5 billion vehicles registered worldwide. The research team has found that 47.2 million aftermarket telematics hardware devices were sold globally during 2022 at a total market value of approximately € 2.4 billion. Asia-Pacific is the largest geographical market, achieving shipments of about 16.6 million in 2022. 

The shipments of aftermarket telematics hardware in Europe and North America accounted for 12.6 million and 10.9 million respectively. The report forecasts that global shipments of aftermarket telematics devices will grow at a CAGR of 10.5 percent in the next five years to reach 77.6 million in 2027. Teltonika was the market leader in terms of aftermarket hardware sales with a market share of about 6 percent reaching annual sales of € 139 million in 2022. 

CalAmp was the runner up with a market share of about 4 percent in terms of sales and shipments of about 1.5 million telematics units in 2022. Additional top players include Queclink and Jimi/Concox. Queclink ranked third and sold about 2.4 million telematics units to the vehicle industry in 2022. Jimi/Concox ranked fourth in terms of revenues and was the leading company in terms of shipments, reaching a volume of 4.1 million units in 2022. Notable vendors further include ERM Advanced Telematics from Israel; Sensata Insights, Positioning Universal, and Danlaw from North America; Suntech International, Gosuncn RichLink, Neoway Technology, Gosafe, Kingwo, ATrack and iTriangle from Asia-Pacific; and Meta System, Ruptela and Munic from Europe. 

Automotive manufacturers can choose between connectivity options such as embedded and handset-based when creating connected car services, which are not mutually exclusive. Embedded solutions use cellular communications hardware inside the vehicle, whereas handset-based solutions use a tethered device such as the driver’s smartphone for connectivity. This report mainly focuses on embedded telematics solutions. Several categories of telematics applications are now offered by most leading vehicle manufacturers. Examples include eCall and roadside assistance, stolen vehicle tracking (SVT), vehicle diagnostics, over-the-air updates, connected navigation and infotainment, fleet management, Wi-Fi hotspots as well as concierge The Global Vehicle Telematics Hardware Market services and convenience applications. The drivers behind the adoption of OEM telematics are
both commercial and regulatory. There are also numerous OEM telematics offerings from commercial vehicle manufacturers, provided either independently or in collaboration with third parties including leading aftermarket telematics providers. These OEM solutions are expected to achieve increased adoption and to an increasing extent be delivered as standard.

The publisher estimates that global shipments of OEM telematics hardware for both passenger cars and commercial vehicles reached close to 58.4 million units in 2022 at a total market value of € 8.4 billion. The report estimates that nearly 72 percent of all new passenger cars and commercial vehicles sold worldwide in 2022 were equipped with an OEM-embedded telematics system, up from 66 percent in 2021. The design and development of OEM telematics systems are complex as these have to integrate with vehicle systems, fulfill strict quality standards, and ensure performance during the long lifecycle of a vehicle model. For this reason, the OEM telematics equipment suppliers are generally established automotive suppliers that develop their solutions in cooperation with car manufacturers. The publisher has identified LG Electronics as the market leader in terms of OEM telematics shipments at a market share of about 27 percent. The company has contracts with leading automotive brands such as General Motors and Volkswagen. Continental and Harman were the runners up with market shares of about 20 and 10 percent respectively. Other leading OEM telematics hardware vendors include Marelli, Denso, Valeo, Actia, Lear, Bosch, Hyundai Mobis, Visteon and Aptiv.
