LPWA Networks could Grow to 3.5 billion Connections in 2025, with Several Sectors Contributing to Growth
Low-power, wide-area (LPWA) is a term used to describe a type of network designed to support the IoT. LPWA networks provide a low-cost, low-power alternative to cellular.

"LPWA connectivity applications with existing or emerging use cases will account for 70% of a total of 3.5 billion connections by 2025."

This report presents our detailed 10-year worldwide forecast for low-power, wide-area (LPWA) network device connections, LPWA connectivity-related average revenue per connection (ARPC) and LPWA connectivity-related revenue.

This forecast report provides:
- detailed forecasts for eight world regions and 74 countries
- forecasts of six industry sectors, 22 applications and an 'Other' category (to capture new use cases)
- connections, connectivity revenue and ARPC
- an overview of the key LPWA network technologies and the players promoting those technologies.

Regions

- Central and Eastern Europe (CEE)
- Developed Asia–Pacific (DVAP)
- Emerging Asia–Pacific (EMAP)
- Latin America (LATAM)
- Middle East and North Africa (MENA)
- North America (NA)
- Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)
- Western Europe (WE)

Key metrics
