Global On Board Units Market Is Predicted To Increase At An Impressive CAGR Of 14.4% During 2023-2033

The on-board units (OBUs) market refers to the industry involved in the production, distribution, and use of electronic devices known as on-board units. OBUs are typically used in transportation systems, particularly in vehicles such as cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles, to enable various functionalities and services.

OBUs are essential components of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and are typically installed in vehicles to provide communication, tracking, and data collection capabilities. They are commonly used for applications such as toll collection, vehicle tracking and monitoring, fleet management, electronic payment systems, and road safety.

The market for OBUs has been growing rapidly due to several factors:

  1. Increasing adoption of electronic toll collection (ETC) systems: OBUs play a vital role in ETC systems by facilitating automated toll payment processes. As governments and transportation authorities worldwide shift towards cashless toll collection to improve efficiency and reduce congestion, the demand for OBUs has increased significantly.
  2. Advancements in connectivity and communication technologies: The evolution of wireless communication technologies such as cellular networks, GPS, and dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) has enabled more sophisticated OBU functionalities. These advancements have expanded the market by enabling features such as real-time traffic information, emergency response systems, and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication.
  3. Government regulations and initiatives: Governments across the globe are implementing regulations and initiatives to improve transportation systems’ efficiency, safety, and environmental sustainability. These include mandates for ETC systems, smart city initiatives, and the promotion of connected vehicle technologies. Such initiatives drive the demand for OBUs in vehicles.
  4. Growing emphasis on smart transportation and mobility solutions: With the increasing focus on smart cities and sustainable transportation, there is a rising demand for intelligent transportation systems. OBUs are a crucial component of these systems, enabling efficient traffic management, improved mobility, and enhanced safety.

The OBU market consists of both original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and aftermarket players. OEMs integrate OBUs into new vehicles during the manufacturing process, while aftermarket providers offer retrofit solutions for existing vehicles. Key players in the market include technology companies, automotive electronics manufacturers, and solution providers specializing in transportation and mobility.

Overall, the OBU market is expected to continue growing as transportation systems evolve, smart cities expand, and the demand for efficient and connected mobility solutions increases.

Which Application of On Board Units Brings in High Revenue Streams for Market Players?

The biggest market share for on board units is estimated to be accounted for by vehicle-to-vehicle communication over the projected timeframe. Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication’s capacity to wirelessly transmit data on the speed and location of close-by vehicles has great promise for assisting in the avoidance of collisions, easing traffic congestion, and improving the environment.

Academic institutions and the automobile industry have been expanding the lifesaving potential of V2V communication for more than ten years using these on board devices. These V2V communication signals have a range of more than 300 metres and can identify threats that are obscured by weather, geography, or traffic.

Increasing regulations by governments in different regions has led to significant growth of the on board units market. By application, vehicle-to-vehicle communication is estimated to reach a market valuation of US$ 1.5 billion in 2023.
