Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Low-Power Wide Area Networks Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global low-power wide area networks market: Ingenu, Semtech, Sigfox, and Weightless SIG.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Actility, AT&T, Bouygues Telecom, Huawei, Libelium Comunicaciones Distribuidas, Link Labs, Loriot, NWave, Qualcomm, Senet, Telefonica, Vodafone, and WAVIoT.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing need for secure and compliant cloud solutions. Performing online operations in fields, including medical, retail, and finance, which have strict security standards require secure and compliant cloud solutions. As LPWAN deployment for the IoT matures, the success of any business, which has its presence in the world of connected devices, depends on the degree of digital trust consumers have in its business processes.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is low cost and power consumption of LPWAN technology. LPWAN technologies work on M2M networking environments. LPWAN enables a wide range of M2M and IoT applications, which have constrained budgets and power limitations. The use of LPWAN technology reduces power requirements, provides longer range, and lowers operational cost compared with a mobile network (2G, 3G, and 4G LTE).

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is privacy and security issues. LPWAN facilitates communication among supply chain players to promote easier management of inventory. It offers retailers a complete and innovative method of communication with clients, to enable effective shopping experience.
