Installed base of fleet management systems in Russia/CIS and Eastern Europe to top 7.9m by 2020

Rickard Andersson, senior analyst, Berg Insight

According to a new research report from the analyst firm Berg Insight, the number of active fleet management systems deployed in commercial vehicle fleets in Russia/CIS and Eastern Europe was 4.2 million in Q4-2015.

Berg Insight is a dedicated M2M/IoT market research firm based in Sweden. The company has been specialising in all major machine-to-machine and Internet of Things (M2M/IoT) verticals such as fleet management, car telematics, smart metering, smart homes, mHealth and industrial M2M since 2004.

Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.5%, this number is expected to reach 7.9 million by 2020. The Russian market accounts for a significant share of the region’s total installed base. The top-10 providers of fleet management solutions for commercial vehicles across Russia, the CIS and Eastern Europe together have an installed base of over 2.0 million active units today. Top providers include Gurtam, Arvento Mobile Systems, TechnoKom, Mobiliz, Navigator Group, NIS, SCOUT and Omnicomm, all having at least 100,000 active units in the region.

The fleet management markets in Eastern Europe and the CIS are expected to follow the developments in Western Europe. “Eastern Europe is already tracing the most developed European markets closely in terms of system functionality and service models”, said Rickard Andersson, senior analyst, Berg Insight.

The major Russian solution providers have historically mainly served large corporations with standalone software systems which are paid upfront and hosted in-house, whereas subscription services traditionally have been adopted primarily by SMBs.

“Cloud services based on monthly service fees have however now become a greater focus also for major enterprise fleets on the Russian market and the domestic solution providers are increasingly pushing for a transition towards SaaS-based models”, Andersson said.

He added that there is similarly a gradual shift in customer requirements in terms of fleet management functionality to increasingly align with features demanded in mature markets such as time- and money-saving automation tools and integration of eco-driving components.
