We are hopeful that this forum shall serve as a melting pot of ideas in this regard as it covers a cross-industry perspective and areas of vehicle tracking technology in India as well as across the globe.'

By the end of 2025, the global vehicle tracking market is expected to reach a whopping USD 11 billion along with a CAGR of 7 per cent between 2018 and 2025. It has been estimated that by 2023, the global GPS Tracking Device Market can grow upto USD 2.53 billion.
