Executive summary (Europe)

Fleet management is an ambiguous term used in reference to a wide range of solutions for different vehicle-related applications. Berg Insight's definition of a fleet management solution is a vehicle-based system that incorporates data logging, satellite positioning and data communication to a backoffice application. The history of fleet management solutions goes back several decades. On-board vehicle computers first emerged in the 1980s and were soon connected to various satellite and terrestrial wireless networks. Today mobile networks can provide ubiquitous online connectivity at a reasonable cost and mobile computing technology delivers very high performance, as well as excellent usability. All of these components combined enable the delivery of vehicle management, transport management, driver management and mobile workforce management applications linking vehicles and enterprise IT systems.

Commercial vehicle fleets play an essential role in the European economy. According to official statistics there were 35.5 million commercial vehicles in use in EU23+2 in 2008. The 6.2 million medium and heavy trucks accounted for more than 75 percent of all inland transports, forming a € 250 billion industry. Approximately 0.7 million buses and coaches stood for 9.3 percent of all passenger kilometres. Last but not least, the greater part of the 28.6 million light commercial vehicles (LCV) in Europe was used by mobile workers and for activities such as distribution of goods and parcels. Berg Insight is of the opinion that the European fleet management market has entered a growth period that will last for several years to come. Individual markets may however suffer temporary setbacks, depending on the local economic developments. The number of fleet management systems in active use is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 20.7 percent from 2.0 million units at the end of 2010 to 5.0 million by 2015. The penetration rate in the total population of non-privately owned commercial vehicles is estimated to increase from 6.9 percent in 2010 to 17.6 percent in 2015.

A group of international aftermarket solution providers have emerged as the leaders on the European fleet management market. Masternaut is ranked as the largest player overall in terms of installed base with close to 200,000 units deployed, mainly in France and the UK. TomTom Business Solutions was the fastest growing vendor also in 2010 and has now surpassed 143,000 subscribers. Transics is number one in the heavy trucks segment with an estimated 65,000 active units installed. Other significant players include European companies such as Vehco, Navman Wireless and Trafficmaster and international players like Trimble and Qualcomm from the US and the South African telematics providers Digicore and MiX Telematics. All major truck manufacturers on the European market offer OEM telematics solutions as a part of their product portfolio. Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Scania launched their first products in the 1990s and followed by MAN in 2000, Renault Trucks in 2004, DAF Trucks in 2006 and IVECO in 2008. The products are all supporting the FMS standard and can generally be deployed in mixed fleets even if some functionality can be brand-specific. A major trend in the past three years has been the announcement of solutions for remote downloading of digital tachograph data and more advanced functionalities for eco-driving.

The consolidation trend in Europe has been accelerating in the past 18 months with a total of nine major M&A activities. Francisco Partners, a global technology-focused private equity firm, acquired Cybit in January 2010 in a deal worth about € 28 million. This deal was later followed by the acquisition of Masternaut in April 2011 forming the leading player in Europe from the Masternaut and Cybit operations while keeping the Masternaut brand. Trafficmaster was acquired by Vector Capital in June 2010 and subsequently delisted from the London Stock Exchange. In July 2010, Trimble acquired Punch Telematix focusing on the heavy trucks segment in a transaction worth € 13.5 million strengthening Trimble's position in mainland Europe considerable. Digicore acquired in the same month Minorplanet in the UK along with the associated businesses in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. A part of Datatronics in Spain – Datatronics Mobility – was acquired by French Sedimap Group in October 2010. Another recent acquisition was done by Vehco in Sweden that acquired Elomobile in France in March 2011. Vehco is the market leader in the Nordics with new ambitions to be a major European player expanding into new countries. The latest transaction was done in June 2011 when Transics acquired the European activities of CarrierWeb

Executive summary (Americas)

Fleet management (FM) is an ambiguous term used in reference to a wide range of solutions for different vehicle-related applications. Berg Insight's definition of an FM solution is a vehicle-based system that incorporates data logging, satellite positioning and data communication to a backoffice application. The history of FM solutions goes back several decades. On-board vehicle computers first emerged in the 1980s and were soon connected to various satellite and terrestrial wireless networks. Today mobile networks can provide ubiquitous online connectivity in many regions at a reasonable cost and mobile computing technology delivers very high performance, as well as excellent usability.

All of these components combined enable the delivery of vehicle management, transport management, driver management and mobile workforce management applications linking vehicles and enterprise IT systems. Commercial vehicle fleets play an essential role in the economy both in North and Latin America. In North America, there are approximately 12.9 million GVW 3–8 commercial vehicles in use. In Latin America, the number of commercial vehicles in operation is estimated to 19.9 million, out of which 5.5 million are heavy trucks and 14.4 million are light commercial vehicles. Berg Insight is of the opinion that the market for fleet management in the Americas is in a growth period which was temporarily slowed down by the financial downturn but will continue in the years to come.

The advanced North American market will remain on a growth track, not the least driven by regulatory developments such as CSA and HOS revisions. Latin America is coming from a lower degree of maturity in the utilisation of fleet management solutions and will also experience an increase in adoption. In many cases, an educational process may however be needed in order to increase the awareness among prospective users about the potential that FM solutions have beyond mere security related features. Berg Insight expects the market for fleet management will continue to show healthy growth in 2011. In the North American market, the number of fleet management systems in active use is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.6 percent from 2.1 million units in 2010 to 3.8 million units by 2015. The penetration rate in the total population of non-privately owned commercial vehicles is estimated to increase from 16.3 percent to 29.5 percent in 2015. In Latin America, the number of fleet management systems in use is projected to increase from 0.9 million units in 2010, growing at a CAGR of 20.6 percent to reach 2.3 million units in 2015.

The penetration rate among non-privately owned commercial vehicles in the region is estimated to increase from 4.5 percent in 2010 to 11.6 percent in 2015. The market leaders on the fleet management market in the Americas include a range of different actors. Qualcomm Enterprise Services is ranked as the largest player, with an estimated total installed base of approximately 350,000 units in North and Latin America. The company's solutions are targeted at heavy trucks, where the main competitors in North America are XATA and PeopleNet, with approximately 110,000 units installed each. Actors with substantial business within service fleets include FleetMatics, Networkfleet and Wireless Matrix. Other actors often have a broader market scope, covering both light and heavy vehicles. Examples include Telogis, Trafficmaster/Teletrac, WebTech Wireless and Trimble. Major Brazilian providers include Autotrac, Zatix and OnixSat, each having estimated installed bases in the range of 50,000–85,000 units. Other notable actors in Latin America include Copiloto Satelital in Mexico, Satrack in Colombia and Tastets System in Chile, each holding important positions in their respective countries.

A number of manufacturers of commercial vehicles active in the Americas offer OEM telematics solutions as part of their product portfolio. Volvo Link has been on the market since 2002, while Ford's Crew Chief was launched in 2009, the same year as Daimler's FleetBoard system was released on the Brazilian market. Hino Insight was announced in 2011, as was the Daimler brand Freightliner's factory-installation of telematics hardware from Telogis. MAN offers the Volksnet solution in collaboration with a Brazilian aftermarket provider, while IVECO has developed a fleet management solution especially for the Latin American market. Fleet management solutions from OEMs have not been particularly successful in the Americas, but are expected to increase in importance in the coming years.
