The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the society and overall economy across the globe. The impact of this outbreak is growing day-by-day as well as affecting the supply chain. It is creating uncertainty in the stock market, falling business confidence, massive slowing of supply chain, and increase in panic among customers. European countries under lockdown have suffered a major loss of business and revenue due to shutdown of manufacturing units in the region. Operations of production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19, which led to slowdown in growth of the GPS tracking device industry in 2020.

According to the GPS tracking device market trends, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the global manufacturing and industrial sectors as production facilities have stalled, which, in turn, led to significant demand in industries.

The emergence of COVID-19 has declined the growth of the personal GPS tracker market size in 2020, and is estimated to witness slow growth till the end of 2021. Implementation of partial or complete lockdown across various countries globally is the prime reason for this decline in growth rate. As industries were temporarily shut, it reduced the need for maintenance from various industries.

Top Impacting Factors

Notable factors positively affecting the GPS tracking device market include increase in commercial vehicle sales and rise in demand for IoT and cloud technology and machinery in manufacturing units. However, nonstandard products and several environmental factors lead to poor user experience which hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, surge in usage of digital map and rise in advancements and upgradation of software used in GPS tracking devices are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for the market growth in the coming years.

Increase in Demand For IoT and Cloud Technology

GPS tracking devices are used in many sectors such as automotive, healthcare, and more for tracking. Over the past few years, the need for tracking has increased at a rapid pace. GPS trackers are embedded with electronics and internet connectivity to make them smart devices and objects, which can connect to the cloud, be remotely controlled, and communicate with each other. This is attributed to increased demand for tracking system, which, in turn, drives the market growth.

Nonstandard Products and Several Environmental Factors Leads to Poor User Experience

Several environment factors, such as dense trees, tall buildings, heavy cloud cover, and rains can weaken GPS signal, sometimes the result or tracking gets delayed because of these geographical limitations. Also to gain competitive advantage, few vendors and manufacturers deliver low-cost and low quality GPS tracking devices in the market, thus resulting in poor user experience and poor quality. This is the key hurdle for the growth of the market.
