Synopsis:

Unlicensed Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs) such as Sigfox and LoRaWAN™ are providing much of the growth for the industrial Internet of Things despite accelerated rollouts of NB-IoT and LTE-M networks.

With low-cost, battery-powered wireless sensors, LPWANs are connecting assets many miles away, monitoring equipment deployed in multiple factory sites and providing continuous visibility of mobile assets with significantly reduced connectivity and maintenance costs. Connected industrial LPWAN devices are on track to triple by 2020.

ON World’s 2018 survey with 160 industrial IoT professionals-- completed with the International Society of Automation (ISA) and the LoRa Alliance™-- found that 57% are researching or developing industrial LPWAN solutions. Three quarters of LPWAN developers are targeting new industrial IoT applications that cannot be addressed with existing technologies.

Driving IoT Innovations

Competition among LPWAN technologies has driven IoT innovations such as multi-radio devices, radio-based geolocation, disposable devices and evolving network operator business models. The growing licensed and unlicensed public LPWAN ecosystem has resulted in services now available in over 100 countries. With 80 public network operators worldwide, growth is accelerating for private LoRaWAN™ networks that provide rapidly deployable, dedicated networks for enterprises.

Within the next decade, there will be 650 million wireless sensing, tracking and control devices in use worldwide for industrial automation, logistics, agriculture, construction and related areas. LPWANs will make up 1 in 3 by this time, with the largest impact for asset tracking and locating, precision agriculture, remote equipment monitoring and smart water solutions. 

Evolving Network Operator Models

Established network operators such as Comcast, Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Verizon and Vodafone are ramping up their IoT offerings with vertical solutions and disruptive connectivity service pricing. LoRaWAN™ offers enterprises with the flexibility of having dedicated, private networks with hosted network servers in the cloud or installed on-site as well as seamless roaming across multiple networks.

Dedicated IoT network operators such as Senet and Ingenu have launched new cloud-based network connectivity business models aimed at accelerating IoT adoption.

This report is based on extensive phone interviews with industrial automation vendors, suppliers and end users as well as Q4 2018 survey with 160 industrial IoT professionals that was completed in collaboration with the International Society of Automation (ISA) and the LoRa Alliance™.

For the past 15 years, ON World’s market research has been used by government agencies, Fortune 1000 companies and IoT developers worldwide.
