The global installed base of GNSS-based on-board units deployed for road user charging exceeds 7 million units

GNSS-based road pricing refers to the charging of road users using global navigation satellite system (GNSS) sensors inside vehicles. The road pricing umbrella term typically covers various types of schemes such as electronic toll collection (ETC) and road user charging (RUC) as well as vignettes and congestion charging.

More than a dozen countries around the world have GNSS-based RUC/ETC systems that are in operation or about to be launched in the near-term. The vast majority of these are so far located in Europe but there are also programs in operation in North America and Asia-Pacific as well. Berg Insight estimates that the installed base of GNSS-based on-board units deployed for road user charging reached more than 7.4 million units worldwide in 2023. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3 percent, the installed base is forecasted to reach almost 10.6 million units in 2028.

Berg Insight ranks Russia, Germany and Poland as the largest markets in terms of the number of GNSS-equipped vehicles for road user charging purposes. The Russian implementation is the largest in the world with more than 1 million on-board units in use for the Platon ETC system. Germany and Poland are the runners-up with the Lkw-Maut and e-TOLL systems respectively.

Other countries with more than half a million on-board units in use include Belgium with the Kilometer Charge, Hungary's HU-GO and the Czech Republic with the CzechToll satellite toll system. Bulgaria and Slovakia also have several hundred thousand on-board units deployed. The remaining top-10 markets are New Zealand and Switzerland with the eRUC and LSVA implementations respectively. The fragmented US market has a few operational RUC programs on state level and the country is just outside of the global top-10 so far.

The road pricing space is affected by various market drivers and industry trends that will shape the sector in the years to come. The European Electronic Toll Service (EETS) is driving interoperability in the major European market and there is a trend towards GNSS at the expense of other technologies from a global perspective.

There is moreover an emerging shift from traditional windshield OBUs to also including other hardware form factors in road user charging implementations for various vehicle types. The growing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) and associated fuel tax losses are moreover favouring distance-based RUC overall. Various value-added service offerings are furthermore facilitated as electronic tolling is converging with vehicle telematics.
