Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Machine-to-machine (M2M) Services Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global machine-to-machine (M2M) services market: AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Rogers Communications, Verizon, and Vodafone

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aeris Communications, Amdocs, Cantaloupe Systems, Carriots, China Mobile, cStar Technologies, CyberNet, Digi International, e2Solutions, Ericsson, FAS International, Gemalto, Happiest Minds, Huawei, Indra, JT Wholesale, KORE Wireless Group, M2M Connectivity, Margento, METRIC Group, N&W Global Vending, Nayax, Novatel Wireless, Orange Business Services, POS Unlimited, Robustel, Royal Vendors, Siemens, Singtel, USA Technologies, Vianet, Vix Technology, and Wipro.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is M2M platform consolidation. Powerful M2M platforms are available that fit onto small boards to provide many ports. These platforms are compatible with Linux, Android, and other such standardized operating systems. Furthermore, M2M platform consolidation solutions provide an intuitive management platform for all M2M solutions. Also, the solutions assist in monitoring services closely and consistently improving the integration between solutions.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is M2M services for dynamic real-time tracking. M2M systems help gather customer data related to buying patterns and shopping preferences. These data help enterprises send relevant and timely offers to consumers. M2M technology enables enterprises to establish a comprehensive and proactive supply chain through narrowing the demand-supply gap while gathering data about stock levels on real-time basis. It also enables to consolidate the supply chains in real-time by centrally monitoring goods or machines using sensors.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Integration issues of M2M devices. The integration of M2M devices with cellular M2M technologies is a cumbersome process for M2M vendors because it requires the redesigning of these devices. For instance, for a wireless M2M integrated solution, a transmission control protocol (TCP)/internet protocol (IP) stack and application software are required in a remote device to integrate it properly with another device. In addition, M2M devices can only be integrated with a company’s back-end enterprise infrastructure using middleware and enterprise application software. The addition of supplementary functionalities such as GPS, Bluetooth, and other types of short-range wireless connectivity technologies to the M2M wireless technology causes integration issues.
