Fuel management systems are designed to effectively manage and control utilization of fuel among transportation and construction industries. Fluctuating fuel prices and increasing penetration of fossil fuel vehicles worldwide are expected to set high demand for fuel management systems over the following years. Depleting world oil reserves and strict environmental norms for reducing fuel consumption together introduce huge need for effective fuel management. Fuel management systems are highly demanded from the companies involved in transportation, construction and energy plants to provide accuracy, accountability and security for their fluid assets.
Fuel management systems can tackle notable issues by eliminating conventional error prone manual entries and unauthorized fuel usage. These systems are witnessing increased government interest on account of improved fuel tracking, positively impacting taxation. These systems also eliminate misallocation & theft of the fuel and improves driver’s accountability through effective management of fuel expenses. All these benefits offered by fuel management systems increases its adoption across several industry verticals. Rapid adoption of cloud-based solutions is observed as a recent trend gaining traction in overall fuel management systems market. This increases the market potential for automated fuel management systems on a large scale.
Fuel management systems market is segmented, on the basis of type into card-based, on-site, automated, mobile and total fuel management systems. Cloud-based systems are recently introduced in the market and expected to hold highest market share during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Other fuel management systems such as on-site and card based systems includes separate entities such as RFID cards and identification PIN among others. These additional entities introduce a risk of security attacks, thus increases the preference for highly secure and advanced cloud-based fuel management system.
