Commercial Telematics System Revenue in Asia-Pacific to Recover From COVID-19 and Hit US$14 Billion by 2025

The transport and logistics sector, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, has been one of the hardest hit. Companies had to quickly pivot their strategies to cope with new challenges brought on by the pandemic, with initial success. ABI Research forecasts that commercial telematics system revenue in Asia-Pacific will nearly double from US$7.3 billion in 2020 to US$14.1 billion in 2025, at a CAGR of 13.9%.

Throughout the supply chain, COVID-19 presented specific challenges from contactless delivery, the shutdown of truck stops, and the closure of back offices, which caused disruptions between suppliers, distribution hubs, and retailers/consumers,” explains Kangrui Ling, Research Analyst. “As a result, location-based solutions, including real-time traffic data, estimated time of arrival notifications, and vehicle visibility, are playing an important role in tackling these challenges.”

COVID-19 Cuts Smart Home Growth by US$14 Billion in 2020, But Drives Future Change

A new study from ABI Research finds that smart home revenues will reach US$85 billion in 2020, just a 4% increase over 2019. Pre-pandemic 2020 smart home revenue growth was forecasted to hit 21% over 2019 – a US$14.1 billion loss.

Economic uncertainty, consumer spend constraint, restricted physical retail opportunities, installation restrictions, disrupted manufacturing, and distribution all have curbed smart home spending, but the study finds that the spending shortfall is temporary.

The pandemic is a double-edged sword for the smart home industry,” says Jonathan Collins, Smart Home Research Director. “While the immediate impact may be negative, many of the long-term and structural changes to consumer lives initiated in 2020 will have a lasting positive impact that will help to drive adoption in many areas of the smart home space.”
