Odometer calculates the distance covered or travelled by vehicle. Odometer is also known as milometer or mileometer in some parts of the world. In past, odometers were completely mechanical but due to advancement in technology, electronic odometers are developed and widely used. Some odometers are even the combination of both mechanical and electronics. Odometer calculates the distance travelled by vehicles by counting number of wheel rotations times the tire circumference. Nowadays, GPS are also used as odometers and are considered more precise and accurate. A GPS receiver with odometer mode servers as both odometer and speedometer and considered as highly inexpensive and precise device.
The report classifies the odometer market with respect to type of vehicle in which the device is used. These includes bicycles, two wheelers such as motor bikes and sports bikes, three wheelers, and four wheelers such as passenger cars, heavy commercial vehicles, light commercial vehicles, buses, trucks, luxury car etc. The rate of penetration of odometer in the four wheelers is high as compared to other types of vehicles.
The report gives insightful information about the different driving and restraining factors impacting the odometer market. The increasing use of trip meters instead of odometers as trip meters can be reset at any point of journey and hence is the major challenge to the odometer market.
