According to 6Wresearch, India telematics market is expected to reach $113.7 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 22.8% during the period 2013-2018. India telematics market is expected to display a healthy growth rate which is expected to stem mostly from the commercial markets like fleet management. Further, the growth of the India telematics market is expected to be impacted by growing infrastructure.

At present, telecom network enabled telematics is gaining momentum as modules based on 2G/2.5G/3G platforms are less costly than satellite modules. Currently, 2G/2.5G based modules have dominated the Indian telematics market, but with the launch of 3G and 4G networks, a shift towards 3G and 4G based modules is expected over the coming years.

Rise of telematics market in India is also led by government initiatives for instance; recently government has announced the INR12, 000cr ($2.4bn) for modernization of police forces, including strengthening of security network in all major cities. These initiatives will act as a mojor growth driver for the Indian telematics market over the coming years.
