Western Europe Machine-to-Machine Market 2013–2018 Forecast Analysis
This IDC study examines the Western European machine-to-machine (M2M) market from 2013 to 2018. Market sizing for connectivity services, which is one of the components in the value chain, is provided with a five-year growth forecast by country, vertical industry, and business segment. This study also outlines the development of this market in each of the European countries and analyzes key vertical segments contributing to M2M growth.
"The M2M market is going through a period of transition, shifting from education and piloting projects to actual commercial deployments. Certainly, the hype of the past few years has not been materialized in booming rollouts, but the market is now more mature and aware of the potential benefits M2M brings to their businesses. To this effect, key industry players are forming strategic partnerships and fine-tuning their go-to-market strategies in specific verticals," said Angela Salmeron, research manager, IDC Mobile Enterprise Strategies EMEA.
