Product Synopsis

Chinese government is positive about telematics but licensing legislation lags behind this new industry...

OE telematics services are at a period of expansion in China but foreign vehicle manufacturers are finding it difficult to deploy services due to government involvement and harsher licensing restrictions than their domestic counterparts.

In “The Great Wall - Overcoming legislative obstacles to telematics in China”, SBD analyses both the current status and the future direction of government involvement in telematics in China, focusing on the licences, mandates and relevant associations that are playing a key role in defining this involvement. The report also provides recommendations to vehicle manufacturers on how to maximise the chances of success when deploying telematics in China.

This report will help you:

  • Maximise the chances of success when deploying telematics in China
  • Brief legal departments on necessary legislative and licensing issues for launching telematics services in this market
