Growth Opportunities in Low-Power Wide Area Networks: NB-IoT and Satellite Connectivity for Agribusinesses

DUBLIN, Jan. 29, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Growth Opportunities in Low-Power Wide Area Networks" report has been added to's offering.


The low-power wide area network (LPWAN) market is in a growth stage, with network operators collaborating to establish LPWAN standard convergence. While some LPWAN providers are arranging deals to combine LoRaWAN with Sigfox in their connectivity offerings, others are integrating proprietary LPWAN with cellular LPWAN.

LPWAN providers are also innovating around satellites, creating solutions that give rise to new growth opportunities. LPWAN operators innovating with non-terrestrial networks (NTNs) are conducting tests and trials. The commercial launch of hybrid satellite and LPWAN connectivity solutions will impact the market, in particular for verticals such as oil and gas, fleet management, agriculture, and maritime.

The ecosystem is growing, and alliances are attracting an increased number of members. As of November 2023, Wi-SUN Alliance has approximately 350 member companies across North America; Latin America; Asia-Pacific; and Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), including Texas Instruments (TI), WISeKey, QualityLogic, Atsign, and Renesas Electronics. The LoRa Alliance surpassed 500 members globally, with strategic partners joining the board of directors (i.e., Semtech, Cisco, AWS, Echostar Mobile, STMicroelectronics).

Fast growth in LPWAN product certification conducted by the alliances and the acceleration in LPAN hardware manufacturing are influencing ecosystem evolution and increasing LPWAN offerings globally.

The market will grow steadily from 2023 to 2028, with LPWAN connected devices forecast to reach 3.3 billion globally by 2028.
