Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “As a result of technological advancement, customers are increasingly shifting from voice services to data services. With the increasing M2M services more traffic is generated by machines than humans. Currently, people are willing to pay more in order to get better services depending on their requirements. The global market has the capability of consuming millions of M2M devices assuming an availability of a steady state of data services. The existing infrastructure and coverage of telecom operators is helping to spread the value-added data services. ”
According to the report, the Global M2M Wireless Network Services market is witnessing enormous growth opportunities as the MNOs are looking for alternative income opportunities. With its transition into a data era, the Global Telecom industry with its strong mobile subscription base is finding new income opportunities. The Global Telecom market with a subscriber base of over six billion is one of the largest marketplaces. With the increasing churn scenario, even the expanding customer base is failing to drive the revenue for the operators. The growth of data is surpassing voice significantly in this fading market where there is continuous pressure of competitive price drops. Hence, new income opportunities for MNOs are driving the Global M2M Wireless Network Services market.
Further, the report states that the M2M value chain includes manufacturers, connectivity providers, application service providers, service providers, sellers, and resellers. Although this extensive value chain supports M2M for its economic growth, the coordination among the value chain members is complex. The interoperability at the hardware and software as well as the user interface level is posing a heavy challenge for the M2M market. This adverse effect of the coordination in the value chain acts as a hindrance to offering complete solutions to end-users.M2M solutions require maintenance, software updates, data hosting, connectivity, and other services running simultaneously in order to provide a complete M2M solution to the end-user. Hence, the coordination among the members of the M2M value chain poses a major challenge for the M2M market.
