Construction & Heavy Equipment Telematics Market Growth & Trends 2026

Construction & Heavy Equipment Telematics Market

The global construction & heavy equipment telematics market size is projected to reach USD 1,498 million by 2026, from an estimated value of USD 676 million in 2021, at a CAGR of 17.2%. Increase in demand for telematics solutions in off-highway equipment and government mandates on safety and security of off-highway equipment are the driving factors that are expected to boost the construction and heavy equipment telematics market.

As autonomous technology continues to develop and prices fall to a more affordable level, the number of autonomous off-highway equipment will grow in the coming years. Verizon (US), Trimble Inc. (US), Topcon Corporation (Japan), Hexagon AB (Sweden), and Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), some of the market leaders, offer extensive telematics solutions in the off-highway industry. These companies have strong distribution networks at the global level and strategic partnerships with off-highway OEMs would drive the use of autonomous equipment.

By industry, mining is speculated to create attractive revenue opportunities during the forecast period. The use of telematics in the mining industry has improved safety, productivity, and operational efficiency from pit to port by replacing manual mining operations, including exploration, drilling, blasting, digging, loading, hauling, crushing, transportation, and ship loading; with fully autonomous and connected systems. Telematics can help manage everyday operations to keep everything running efficiently within a mining site, from available resources to real-time locations of assets. Monitoring haul cycles helps mine managers address delays and make real-time modifications. Based on fleet data, information from telematics indicates where delays are likely to occur, which can be addressed immediately. Mining sites rely heavily on mobile light towers, but they can be a costly resource when staff needs to visit and manually check each one. GPS tracking allows remote management of towers, with data such as fuel level, engine data, and light status sent live to the server. Hence, telematics for the mining industry is anticipated to witness optimistic market opportunities.

By form factor, demand for embedded segment is projected to be the fastest by 2025. The growth of embedded telematics in the long term can be attributed to various disruptive factors such as government mandates, cost optimization of service plans, and increase in cloud-based services. Moreover, the adoption of 5G technology, which provides high-speed connectivity, will shift the inclination of manufacturers and buyers toward embedded telematics solutions. Additionally, embedded solutions offer faster and reliable data communication between the equipment and infrastructure. All these factors have contributed to the market size of embedded telematics solutions across regions.
