The South African fleet management market is clearly dominated by five domestic players with broad telematics portfolios and more than 100,000 fleet management units in use in this market. The analyst ranks Cartrack and MiX Telematics as the largest providers of fleet management solutions in South Africa, together with having more than 0.5 million active units in the country. Tracker is the third-largest player followed by Netstar and Ctrack (Inseego).

Other top-10 players on the South African fleet management market include local providers such as Bidtrack (Bidvest Group), Digit Vehicle Tracking (Digicell) and GPS Tracking Solutions (Eqstra Fleet Management), as well as international players including Webfleet Solutions (Bridgestone) and Gurtam, all having estimated installed bases of at least 30,000 fleet management units in the country. Bidtrack's owner Bidvest is notably in the process of acquiring Eqstra Fleet Management including GPS Tracking Solutions.

Players just outside of the top list include Autotrak, Digital Matter, Pointer Telocation (PowerFleet), ACM Track, PFK Electronics, Geotab, and Key Telematics.
