Gothenburg, Sweden,  April 21, 2022    Berg Insight, a leading Internet of Things market research provider, has released a new market study covering the video telematics market that projects the number of cameras in commercial vehicles in North America to reach about 6.3 million by 2026. 

The integration of cameras to enable various video-based solutions in commercial vehicle environments has grown considerably in just a few years. Berg Insight’s definition of video telematics includes a broad range of camera-based solutions deployed in commercial vehicle fleets either as standalone applications or as an added feature set to conventional fleet telematics.

Berg reports the North American video telematics market is three times the size of the European sector, which is to date dominated by activities in the UK. Berg Insight estimates that the installed base of active video telematics systems in North America reached 2.9 million units in 2021. Growing
at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.5 percent, the active installed base is forecasted to approach the 6.3 million unit number in North America by 2026. In Europe, the installed base of active video telematics systems is estimated to exceed 0.9 million units in 2021, and 2.1 million video telematics systems in 2026.
