DUBLIN, Aug. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The "The Global M2M/IoT Communications Market - 8th Edition" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The Global M2M/IoT Communications Market analyses the latest trends and developments in cellular IoT and low power wireless networking. This strategic research report provides you with unique business intelligence including 5-year industry forecasts and expert commentary on which to base your business decisions.
The report estimates that the global number of cellular IoT subscribers increased by 27 percent during 2022 to reach 2.7 billion at the end of the year - corresponding to around 24 percent of all mobile subscribers. Until 2027, the number of cellular IoT subscribers is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.4 percent to reach 5.4 billion at the end of the period. During the same period, cellular IoT connectivity revenues are forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 14.6 percent from € 10.8 billion in 2022 to approximately € 21.4 billion in 2027. Meanwhile the monthly ARPU is expected to drop to € 0.35.
China is the world's largest market for cellular IoT connectivity services by volume. According to data from the national telecom regulator, the installed base in the country grew by 32 percent year-on-year to reach 1.8 billion IoT connections at the end of 2022. This corresponded to about 70 percent of the global installed base. It is believed the role of the Chinese government is the main explanation for why China is ahead of the rest of the world in the adoption of IoT. Authorities actively endorse large-scale IoT deployments as a method for addressing problems affecting the society, whether it is crime, fire safety, energy conservation or traffic management. The private sector is directed and encouraged to do the same.
North America and Western Europe ranks as the second and third largest markets for IoT solutions with 240 million and 218 million IoT subscribers respectively at the end of 2022. In contrast to China, developments in these regions are largely driven by commercial interests. The connected car is currently one of the strongest trends with close to 90 percent of new cars sold featuring embedded cellular connectivity in the regions. Other key application areas are fleet management of commercial vehicles, smart utility metering and monitored alarm systems. Latin America, Central & Eastern Europe and South Asia had in the range of 44-62 million IoT subscribers, while Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia had around 30 million each.
IoT connectivity revenues are growing at a slower rate than the number of connections, though the sustained decline in the global ARPU decelerated in 2022. The analysis of the IoT business KPIs released by mobile operators in different parts of the world suggests that global IoT connectivity revenues increased by around 24 percent during 2022, while the monthly APRU dropped by 1 percent. On average, IoT connectivity revenues account for around 2 percent of total revenues for the largest mobile operator groups. As the value in IoT lies in value-added services rather than connectivity, mobile operators increasingly focus on boosting their IoT portfolios by adding cloud services and security capabilities on top of their connectivity offering to capture a larger share of the market. Several players have embarked on vertical integration strategies, typically by acquiring local solution providers in application areas like fleet and asset tracking. Private LTE/5G is an emerging focus area, where many operators act as managed service providers.
