The telematics and IoT platform Wialon by Gurtam accounts for 48% of the total subscription fee on the Russian telematics market.

Boris Pankov, CEO of Omnicomm, spoke about it at the 10th annual conference Navitoring in Moscow. He referred to the annual research that his company has been doing for the last ten years. More than 1,100 market players took part in the survey, including integrators, developers, hardware manufacturers, service stations, and distributors.

Omnicomm is second with 14%. TechnoKom, Scout, Fort Telecom, and GLONASSsoft have also made it to the top.

The company estimates the active subscriber base in Russia at 1,6 million vehicles (it dropped by 9% last year).

As for the entire market, its size moneywise was estimated at almost $35,000,000 (+1% compared to 2019). The average monthly subscription fee is $5,94 (1% up).

“The Russian market has been and remains one of the largest for our company, in terms of both the number of connected vehicles and the number of Wialon partners. Now, in the Russian Federation, more than a million units are connected to the latest versions of Wialon (not taking into account older server solutions). We owe this result primarily to our partner community. We work all over the world and monitor the development of telematics in different countries. I would like to say that the Russian market is notable for the high proficiency of its players: Wialon partners possess excellent technical knowledge, the ability to get to the bottom of business challenges and build complex solutions that help significantly improve clients’ results. All these allowed our partners to show great results even in such a difficult year as 2020,” Denis Grebennikov, Wialon Business Development Director (Russia and the CIS), said.

The Russian market is the largest for Wialon. The Ukrainian and Mexican markets are the next largest ones.
