The Russian and CIS nations constitute a unique and diverse part of the connected truck telematics market, and these countries include Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Several local and international telematics companies serve the Russian and CIS connected truck telematics market.

The region’s macroeconomic situation is constantly changing, leading the connected truck telematics market landscape to restrain its telematics penetration. The region also has to deal with universal market challenges like driver shortages, ROI justification, and vehicle and driver security concerns. Additionally, there are region-specific challenges such as the devaluation of national currencies, decreasing foreign investments, and further technological challenges. The market promises good growth potential and is expected to improve because of government regulations and telematics awareness.

The market in the region is fragmented and highly competitive, and the top 3 participants split approximately 46.7% of the total market. The market in general is growing at a rate of 9.5% from 2018 to 2019 YoY. An estimated 11.3 million commercial vehicles in Russia and CIS are plying the roads in the region and serving various industries like transport and logistics, oil and gas, and construction. Transport and logistics, as well as oil and gas, offer the highest opportunities for growth for TSPs. The telematics installed base is 1.58 million units, with a penetration rate of approximately 13.9% by the end of 2018. The region is expected to show slow yet steady growth as fleet management solutions are becoming increasingly common among fleet operators and owners.
