Stolen Vehicle Tracking: Is There a Future for RF Technology?

Purchase

Stolen vehicle tracking has been offered by GM-OnStar for more than a decade as a factory installed solution. It has also seen success as an aftermarket solution for high-end vehicles with LoJack's RF solution positioned as a premium offer providing deep indoor coverage. As embedded factory-installed telematics technology and indoor location technologies become more widespread, aftermarket solutions will gradually become less popular, and in its wake RF will lose overall market share. However, in regions like the U.S. and South Africa RF will survive due to its reliability and high stolen vehicle recovery rates.

This study covers stolen vehicle market trends including stolen vehicle tracking subscriber forecasts per region and per type. It includes a comparison of stolen vehicle tracking technologies and an assessment of the future of RF and its main vendors. A detailed SWOT analysis of market leader LoJack is provided.
