The telematics industry stands poised for tremendous growth and will be one of the most lucrative segments of the intelligent transportations systems (ITS) industry, according to a new study from Allied Business Intelligence (ABI). The global in-vehicle information system (IVIS) market for personal vehicles will rise from a $1 billion market in 2000 to over $8 billion by 2005, according to the findings of "Intelligent Transportation Systems: A Strategic Analysis of Global In-Vehicle Information, Navigation, Communications and Roadside Technologies." The recurring annual revenue for IVIS services alone will account for over $3 billion of that 2005 total.
