Synopsis:

At a pivotal time for the Internet of Things, Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies are blindsiding existing wireless sensor network technologies with multi-kilometer network ranges, multi-year battery lifetimes and cloud-integrated network stacks. LPWAN technologies accelerate IoT service creation by pushing sensor networking complexity to the cloud and this results in simpler networks, easier deployments and faster application development..

The vision for the Internet of Things has been unfolding over the past decade with key technology advances such as low power wireless transceivers, MEMS sensors, wireless mesh networking and cloud IoT platforms. LPWAN is the next step in this evolution and it will enable new IoT services and solutions that will contribute billions of dollars to the global economy.

ON World’s phone interviews and surveys with 150+ IoT market leaders and innovators found that 1 in 3 are planning or currently offer LPWAN products and services. In addition to long-standing deployments for metering and streetlight monitoring, we identified hundreds of new LPWAN applications, many of which cannot be addressed with existing technologies.

Over the next ten years, LPWAN services revenues will reach $75 billion. Non-consumer markets including industrial automation, logistics, smart cities, agriculture, smart buildings and other enterprise IoT services will make up three quarters of the LPWAN services at this time

This is the latest report in a series we have published on LPWANs that covers 30+ application areas in seven (7) of the largest and fastest growing markets for Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) solutions. Each market segment includes 5 and 10-year market size forecasts by unit shipments, connections, application, technology and geography. The report also includes the results of our 2016 enterprise IoT survey and shows the findings from networking tests to illustrate the capabilities of LPWAN technologies.
