According to a recent report from Signals and Systems (SNS) Telecom, M2M network connectivity services are expected to account for nearly $30 Billion in revenue by the end of 2018, following a CAGR of nearly 23% between 2013 and 2018. However, it is important to note that network connectivity isn't the only revenue stream that Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are pursuing in the heavily fragmented M2M value chain. MNOs are aggressively pursuing additional interests such as developing their own home grown Connected Device Platform (CDP) solutions in order to gain a chuck in the M2M revenue pie. The M2M industry is expected to be worth $136 Billion in 2018.
