Arya Omnitalk has been into Vehicle Tracking Systems for a decade. How has the market evolved over the years?
The GPS Vehicle Tracking market in India is largely confined to Trucking, Employee Transportation, Public Transportation and Taxi Management Solutions. The market penetration in the taxi and employee segments has been encouraging whereas the other segments are still grappling with the value proposition.
The industry is still very fragmented with a number of small local and regional players with high attrition of business. Going forward, I definitely see some consolidation happening and customers prefer to deal with serious players who have the necessary support infrastructure. I foresee more realistic business models emerging even in Government buying, especially Public Transportation as well as the Automotive Sector which will discover its own value proposition with advancing vehicle technology. I also see more android, smartphone based applications in some verticals.
Overall, I see a market in excess of
र125-150cr per annum going forward.
The Government is going all out for implementing Electronic Toll Collection throughout the country…
AryaOmnitalk is fully geared up to implement ETC Lanes, having already done so for several projects. However until the entire ecosystem for ETC is established, it is unlikely to gain either acceptance from the concessionaires or end users. These include components such as setting up a clearing house, commission structure per transaction acceptable to the financial institutions, universal implementation & complete inter-operability across concessionaires, strict enforcement of ‘only ETC‘ lanes etc.
