IoT WAN Market Outlook Forecasts 2020 – 2028

IoT WAN Market Outlook Forecasts 2020 – 2028

The 3GPP is standardizing three cellular communications approaches to Wide Area Network (WAN) communications for the Internet of Things (IoT). These three methods are known as EC-GSM-IoT/3GPP, LTE-M/3GPP, and NB-IoT/3GPP. There is also a non-cellular alternative Low Power WAN (LPWAN) approach that allows for long range communications at a low bit rate.

LPWAN technologies represent a great threat to incumbent mobile network operators as $10 LPWAN radios are capable of ten-mile ranges with 10-year battery lifetimes. This provides an attractive alternative to cellular-based communications, especially for certain low-volume transaction applications for IoT.

This research evaluates IoT WAN technologies, companies, and solutions. The report assesses developments in the IoT WAN ecosystem, analyzes use cases, and provides a view into the future of IoT WAN communications. The report includes detailed forecasts for cellular and non-cellular IoT WANs 2020 to 2028.

This research includes the following market findings:
• The IoT WAN market will approach $125.1 billion by 2028 and the market will grow at 22.4% CAGR during 2020-2028
• The non-cellular IoT is the largest connectivity and service with 65% of the total market in 2020
• The extended coverage-GSM-IoT (EC-GSM-IoT) is the largest segment in cellular IoT with 40% of the total market, while SIGFOX in non-cellular IoT in 2020.
• Smart building, industrial, transport and logistics, and smart cities are the major industry verticals of the global IoT WAN market
• North America is the largest region with a 37% of the total market in 2020

Global IoT WAN Connectivity and Service combined market is expected to reach $125.1 billion by 2028 growing a CAGR of 22.4% during the forecasted period 2020 – 2028. Mind Commerce sees extended Coverage-GSM-IoT (EC-GSM-IoT) leading the Cellular IoT WAN revenue with 40% market share of revenue generated from Cellular IoT WAN connectivity and service revenue followed by Narrowband (NB) IoT (LTE CAT-M2, NB IoT, NB-CLTE or NB-CIoT) connectivity with 31% share.
