ABI Research Issues “Cargo Container Security” study

press release
Thursday, November 03, 2011

Increasingly Competitive Container Shipping Market to Boost Security and Tracking Revenues to $690 Million by 2016.
 
 

Container security and tracking revenues will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27% from $212 million in 2011 to $690 million in 2016. Telematics and navigation group director Dominique Bonte says, “With a lot of regulations and legislation being introduced in the aftermath of 9/11, expectations that this industry would finally take off were high, prompting many vendors to enter this market with advanced solutions. While RFID-based point solutions at port yards are becoming more established – at least in North America and Western Europe - uptake of more advanced GPS-based solutions has been disappointing, despite several solutions having been made available by vendors such as SkyBitz, DB Schenker, Starcom, and Pointer Telocation – mainly for the intermodal market.”


ABI Research’s new “Cargo Container Security and Tracking” study covers maritime and intermodal asset management solutions that are enabled with a family of integrated wireless technologies to provide real-time, global tracking, security, and communications features. It includes detailed descriptions of segments and verticals, applications and functionality, market drivers and barriers, regulation, and legislation, as well as shipment and revenue forecasts.
It is part of the Commercial Telematics, RFID, and Smart Cities and Smart Grids research services.
