Big Predictions for 2013

• Low-cost solutions are likely to influence the light commercial vehicle (LCV) telematics segment in 2013. Self-installed onboard diagnostics II (OBD-II) dongles can monitor vehicle and driver behavior and integrate services, such as usage-based insurance (UBI), and regulatory mandates. Mobile devices, XRS, and Audiovox are a few examples.
• Most value-chain participants, including wireless providers, component manufacturers, and software and analytics companies, will introduce proprietary solutions in 2013. Revenue generation likely will be dominated by the business model based on how the distribution channel is defined.
• The surge of smartphone-based applications and solutions in the industry suggests non-automotive participants in the value chain will continue to grow through application development.
• Globally, regulatory mandates are paving the way for telematics. In 2013, participants in the value chain likely will focus on product development and promote solutions that support upcoming mandates, such as the eco-tax, the electronic onboard recorder (EOBR), and Brazil’s CONTRAN .
• The consolidation trend will continue, and this will strengthen vendors expanding into new geographies, addressing targeted markets and businesses, and adding features, such as UBI and smartphone-based applications.
• In 2012, vehicle manufacturers increased their presence in telematics by entering new geographies and shipping telematics boxes as standard in trucks. The increase in imports of trucks from countries such as Russia, Brazil, and China will advance the reach of OEM telematics.
