“We are thrilled to be recognized as the global leader in telematics by ABI Research,” said Geotab CEO Neil Cawse. “Considering our world-class competitors, it is truly an honor that demonstrates our commitment to providing fleets with the most advanced connected technologies—including for electric vehicles —and our ability to contribute significantly to the transformation of the logistics industry.”
ABI forecasts global commercial telematics system revenues to rise across trucking segments from US$13.3 billion in 2017 to over US$23 billion in 2022. According to ABI Research principal analyst, Susan Beardslee, the commercial telematics industry will continue to transform rapidly, addressing a marketplace transition from rising OEM factory installs to evolving technologies such as prognostics, video and blockchain. Recognizing Geotab’s significant 44% growth of its subscriber base in 2018, ABI predicts that global telematics subscriptions are slated to top 45 million by the end of 2019.
