In 2022, LPWA revenues from equipment and associated services will reach $56 billion.
Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) network growth continues to accelerate in
2018 as licensed and unlicensed developers deliver new Internet of
Things (IoT) products and services. Competition among IoT network
operators has intensified over the past year with several tier 1
operators worldwide rolling out LPWA networks and nearly 100 network
operators in various stages of development.
Unlicensed LPWA networks (e.g, Sigfox and LoRa) cover much of Europe and many parts of Asia Pacific with IoT services offered by telcom operators such as Arqiva, Bouygues, Orange, KPN, Proximus, Swisscom as well as a growing number of IoT independent operators such as Senet, Thinxtra and UnaBiz.
Mobile operators such as Deutsche Telekom, China Telecom and Vodafone are aggressively rolling out their licensed NB-IoT networks in Europe, China and Australia. In the U.S., most activity has centered on LTE-M until a few months ago when nearly all major operators including Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile have fast-tracked their NB-IoT networks and services. By the end of 2018, most of the U.S., Europe and Asia Pacific will be covered with licensed IoT networks.
We have identified 43 unique LPWA applications. Over half of the announced LPWA applications focus on smart city and utility applications such as metering, streetlight monitoring, parking solutions and waste management. In addition, there are a growing number of LPWA applications for other industries such as manufacturing, oil and gas, logistics, agriculture, car sharing, electric vehicles, solar panels, building controls, healthcare, bike tracking and wearable devices.
In this report we analyze the market opportunity, competitive threats and status of LPWA network rollouts, commercial deployments and 40+ applications based on 250 interviews by phone and online surveys.
It includes market size forecasts (2016-2022) for connected devices, annual unit shipments and breakdowns by market, application, technology, geography and equipment/services; the results from several surveys; an extensive technology evaluation; and an in-depth analysis of 100+ companies in the rapidly expanding LPWA ecosystem.
