Notably, all of the top-15 players each had more than 100,000 active units in the Americas at the end of 2017. More than 40% of the total number of units deployed in the region is represented by the five largest fleet management vendors alone. Verizon has in 2018 launched Verizon Connect which represents the culmination of more than US$5 billion (€4.38 billion)in investments including high-profile acquisitions such as Fleetmatics and Telogis.

“Verizon Connect is the clear provider in the fleet telematics space both from a global perspective and in the Americas specifically”, says Rickard Anderson, principal analyst, Berg Insight. Verizon’s closest competitor in the Americas is Geotab which has grown considerably in the past year, followed by Omnitracs and Trimble which have both surpassed 0.5 million active fleet management subscribers in the region.

Zonar Systems rounds off the top-5, just ahead of Michelin which has established a strong position in the Americas through multiple acquisitions”, continues Mr. Andersson. He adds that the ongoing consolidation trend in the fleet management space is expected to continue in the coming years.

Numerous vendors have more than half a million active FM subscribers worldwide and the milestone of one million subscriptions has now been surpassed by three leading players, driven by growth strategies based on M&A(merger & acquisition) activity and high-paced organic growth. “Berg Insight anticipates a future scenario where the global fleet management market is dominated by a handful of solution providers with installed bases measured in the millions”, concludes Andersson.
