The global positioning system (GPS) devices market is expected a steady growth due to the acceptance of advanced technology across various sectors. The market is expected a valuation of USD 2.53 Bn by 2023, at 11.9 % CAGR between 2017 and 2023 (forecast period).
The GPS tracking device is generally carried by a vehicle or by a moving person and used in monitoring and tracking the current location of a vehicle or a person. The GPS tracking market has a high demand across sectors such as information technology (IT), transportation, and telecommunication. It offers real-time information about products, vehicles, and individual. These devices provide advanced tracking systems both for consumers and business that further enhances security and safety. Information regarding the moving object can be stored inside the tracking devices or be transferred to a central control unit. The GPS tracker comprises a GPS module that receives the GPS signal.
The system uses radio, satellite or cellular modems that are fitted along with the tracking devices so that the devices with GPS enabled can be used to track mobile objects. The location of the device further uses geometric coordinates so that it can position the object on the map. Furthermore, the GPS tracking system can be classified into three parts namely basic, intermediate and advanced.
Drivers and Restraints
The prime reasons propelling the demand for GPS tracker devices is the easy installation of these devices at affordable costs. Also, the low cost makes it easy for the small and medium-sized business to install these systems and improve their efficiency. Moreover, various governments are setting up GPS devices across transport systems to add utilities to public services. Moreover, cloud technology and IoT are some of the key factors driving the growth of this market.
Meanwhile, to gain competitive advantage, some of the manufacturers are launching GPS tracking devices which are low in cost. Introduction of these nonstandard products are one of the major restraining factors affecting the market growth. Usage of these substandard GPS tracking devices might lead to poor user experience.
