The installed base of FM systems in the Americas to reach 22 million units by 2022
According to a new report from the leading IoT market research provider Berg Insight, the number of active fleet management systems deployed in commercial vehicle fleets in North America was 8.0 million in Q4-2017. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.6 percent, this number is expected to reach 16.4 million by 2022. In Latin America, the number of active fleet management systems is expected to increase from 3.0 million in Q4-2017, growing at a CAGR of 13.1 percent to reach 5.5 million in 2022. The top-25 vendors in the Americas together have a combined installed base of more than 7 million active units in the region today. 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 percent 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 in investments including high-profile acquisitions such as Fleetmatics and Telogis. “Verizon Connect is the clear leader in the fleet telematics space both from a global perspective and in the Americas specifically”, said 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”, continued Mr. Andersson. He adds that the ongoing consolidation trend in the fleet management space is expected to continue in the coming years. Numerous vendors today 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 activity and high-pace 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”, concluded Mr. Andersson.

Shipments of NFC-ready POS terminals reached 24.7 million in 2017
According to a new research report from specialist IoT analyst firm Berg Insight, the market for NFC-ready POS terminals continued to show strong momentum in 2017 with annual shipments reaching an estimated 24.7 million units worldwide. The attach rate for NFC was highest in EU28+2 and North America, where 90 percent and 88 percent respectively of the POS terminals shipped featured NFC. NFC was also a very popular feature in many other major markets worldwide, including Brazil, Turkey and China. On a global basis, almost three out of every five POS terminals shipped in 2017 included NFC. Berg Insight projects the global installed base of NFC-ready POS terminals will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.6 percent from 54.5 million units in 2017 to 112.3 million units in 2022. As a result, more than 78 percent of the world’s POS terminals will be NFC-ready in 2022, up from 50 percent in 2017. While the installed base of NFC-ready POS terminals has grown quickly, the contactless technology has in many cases not been activated. This is now changing and Berg Insight estimates that approximately 30 million POS terminals accepted contactless payments with Visa payWave, MasterCard PayPass or UnionPay Quickpass at the end of 2017. “The mPOS terminal market is growing faster than the traditional POS terminal segment and there are more than 70 vendors active on the global market today” said Johan Fagerberg, Principal Analyst at Berg Insight. mPoS is the use of consumer-oriented mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones that function as a point-of-sale terminal to facilitate payment card transactions through a connection to a card-accepting reader. The attach rate for NFC in the mPOS segment reached 53 percent in 2017 as NFC-ready mPOS terminal shipments reach 9.7 million units. Berg Insight forecasts that global shipments of NFC-ready mPOS terminals will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.9 percent in the next five years to reach 34.5 million units by 2022. “The growth is driven by the increase in mPOS terminal shipments from 18.3 million units in 2017 to 40.7 million units in 2022, as well as by a growth in the attach rate from 53 percent to 85 percent”, concludes Mr Fagerberg.

The IoT platform market has entered a consolidation phase
According to a new research report from the IoT analyst firm Berg Insight, the global market for IoT device management and application enablement platforms reached US$ 1.1 billion in 2017. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 36.2 percent, the total market value is expected to reach US$ 4.9 billion in 2022. IoT platforms provide middleware to connect and manage devices and integrate collected data into various applications and services. These platforms are intended to reduce the cost and development time for IoT solutions by providing standardised components that enterprises can build upon. The IoT platform market is notably crowded and hosts a multitude of players spanning from small start-ups to major companies in the technology and industrial sectors. These companies have developed offerings that typically have a specific focus on a set of capabilities, often related to their core businesses. GE and PTC spearheaded the effort of promoting IoT in the industrial sector on a broader scale. While GE has shifted focus to mainly provide solutions rather than its Predix platform alone, PTC has emerged as the leader in the space. Software AG’s Cumulocity IoT business and the wireless IoT module vendor Telit have also built strong positions in the industrial sector. Software AG’s platform has for example been selected by Siemens to complement its IoT operating system MindSphere. Telit holds a strategic partnership with Wind River that leverages Telit’s technology in its Helix Device Cloud. Additional providers with high involvement in the industrial sector include Bosch, IBM, SAP, Oracle, Exosite, Device Insight and Altair Engineering. In 2017–2018, the major cloud infrastructure vendors Amazon, Microsoft and Google continued to invest heavily in their IoT offerings to drive growth in their cloud businesses. “The involvement of the cloud infrastructure providers will over time lead to commoditisation of some services currently offered by vendors in the IoT platform market and result in further specialisation of IoT platform providers”, said Fredrik Stålbrand, IoT Analyst, Berg Insight. Merger and acquisition activity has risen sharply in recent time and the market has now entered a consolidation phase. “Some level of fragmentation in the market is expected to remain due to lack of standards, but also due to specific requirements in industries characterised by mission critical applications such as automotive, healthcare and manufacturing, as well as in the critical infrastructure industries”, concluded Mr. Stålbrand.
