"Cellular IoT Market by Offering (Hardware and Software) , Type (2G, 3G, 4G, LTE–M, NB–LTE–M, NB–IoT, and 5G), End-Use Application (Automotive & Transportation, Energy, Manufacturing, Retail, Building Automation and Smart City) & Geography - Global Forecast to 2022"

The cellular IoT market is expected to grow from USD 1.26 billion in 2015 to USD 5.31 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 23.34% during the forecast period. Rising demand for extended network coverage and capacity to accommodate large number of connected devices are expected to drive the market for cellular IoT. However, technology fragmentation and lack of regulation for spectrum allocation is expected to rescript the growth of this market.

The demand for long-range communications owing to the increase in demand for connectivity between mobile objects or objects spread out across a wide area drives the growth of NB-IoT market. Moreover, NB-IoT offers low power utilization and extended coverage in comparison to existing technologies such as LoRa and SigFox and is therefore expected to be widely adopted by several industries.

Cellular technologies are now being deployed in smart meter and smart grid for point-to-point communication with individual meters. Moreover, when utility companies opt for cellular communications, they can rely on the mobile operator to provide the network instead of bearing the cost of deploying, operating, and maintaining the entire communications infrastructure themselves. By outsourcing it to mobile operators, companies can reduce both installation costs and implementation time for their smart metering projects.

Countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, and India are investing heavily for the implementation of IoT in infrastructure which is expected to drive the cellular IoT market in Asia-Pacific. In APAC, many projects are in the initial phase of designing with implementation of some ongoing projects. There are still many projects to be initialized during the forecast period which offers tremendous growth opportunities for the smart solution vendors.

The breakup of the profile of primary participants has been given below:

  • By Companies: Tier 1 - 20 %, Tier 2 - 35%, and Tier 3 - 45%

According to the forecast, the cellular IoT market is expected to grow from USD 1.26 Billion in 2015 to USD 5.31 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 23.34% between 2016 and 2022. The growing demand for low power consuming devices and rising demand for extended network coverage area drives the demand for cellular IoT technology. Moreover, growing demand for end–to–security also contribute to the growth of the cellular IoT market.

This report segments the cellular IoT market based on offering, type, end-use application, and geography. On the basis of offering, the market has been divided into hardware and software. The hardware segment held the largest market in 2015. The advanced chipsets for cellular IoT consume less power and provide reliable and secure connection for various IoT applications. The advantages of these modules in comparison to other technologies such as LoRA, SigFox, and so on drive the demand for cellular connectivity in IoT applications. The cellular IoT market for software is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022. Network enhancement is one of the major factors driving the growth of software in cellular IoT market.

In terms of type, the 2G market held the largest market share in 2015. 2G is widely adopted for IoT applications because of low cost of chipset, and majority of connected devices in massive IoT require low data transfer rate which makes 2G an ideal connectivity technology in comparison to 3G, 4G, and others. However, NB-IoT is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2022. The demand for longer-range communications due to the increase in the demand for connectivity between mobile objects or objects spread out across a wide area drives the growth of NB-IoT market.

On the basis of industry, energy held the largest market share in 2015. The increasing adoption of smart meters and smart grids drives the growth of cellular IoT modules in energy industry. However, building automation is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022. The demand for energy management, along with the increasing demand for green homes, drives the growth of building automation market.

North America accounted for the largest share of the cellular IoT market. The U.S. is major contributor to the growth of cellular IoT market in North America. Investment from U.S. government towards implementation of IoT across various sectors such as building automation and utilities under programs such as “Smart America” is driving the North America market for cellular IoT. Deployment of smart city and smart infrastructure in countries such as China, Japan, and India contributes to the highest growth of Asia-Pacific region during the forecast period.

Technology fragmentation and regulations for spectrum allocation are expected to limit growth of this market.

The major players in the cellular-IoT market are Qualcomm Inc. (U.S.), Gemalto N.V. (Netherlands), Sierra Wireless (Canada), U-Blox Holding AG (Switzerland), MediaTek Inc. (Taiwan), Telit Communications PLC (U.K.), ZTE Corporation (China), Mistbase (Sweden), Sequans Communications (France) and CommSolid GmbH (Germany).
