The IoT forecast: connections, revenue and technology trends 2018–2027

IoT Market Research Reports - Connections, Revenue, Technology Trends and Forecast 2027

This report outlines the technology trends, sector shares and the revenue trajectories for cellular and LPWA connectivity in the IoT market.

The IoT opportunity for network operators continues to grow. We forecast that the total number of connections will increase to 5.4 billion in 2027, although a high degree of uncertainty still exists for some LPWA use cases. Connectivity revenue will increase to USD213 billion by 2027 but is subject to increasing competition. ARPC erosion will be significant over the forecast period.


Market Analysis:

  • Technology trends including the number of 2G, 3G/4G, 5G, NB-IoT, LTE-M and ‘other LPWA’ connections worldwide.
  • Key industry sectors and the share of connections and revenue that they contribute.
  • The revenue generated worldwide from hardware, applications and connectivity services.
 
Global Market Trends:

China will be the largest 5G IoT market in the world by 2027 in terms of connections; almost 50% of all 5G IoT connections will come from China by 2027.
Western Europe: LoRa operators took an early lead in the western European LPWA market in terms of connection numbers, but NB-IoT will dominate by 2027.
Central and Eastern Europe: operators are deploying NB-IoT across the region and are trialing new services based on this technology, and LPWA networks in the region are expanding, and LPWA technology will start to contribute significantly to revenue growth.
The Middle East and North Africa: LPWA network deployment has been slower than in other developed regions; there are currently only three commercial networks. The total IoT value chain revenue will grow to over USD6.9 billion; 12% of this will come from connectivity.
North America: the USA is one of the most successful IoT markets; the number of IoT connections will grow to 947 million by 2027. The region will generate the highest IoT revenue of all regions worldwide in 2027 (USD51 billion).
Latin America: Brazil is the largest IoT market in the region; it had over 20 million connections in 2018 and accounted for 54% of all regional IoT connections.  IoT connectivity revenue will grow to USD1.6 billion across the region, 40% of which will come from LPWA connectivity in 2027.

 

7.Worldwide trends
Worldwide: the number of IoT connections will grow strongly over the forecast period, driven by an increase in LPWA connectivity
Worldwide: significant uncertainty regarding LPWA adoption prevails in some sectors
Worldwide: the largest number of 5G IoT connections will come from emerging Asia–Pacific due to the dominance of China
Worldwide: applications will generate most of the IoT revenue because specialist assets and skills are required to deliver them to enterprises
Worldwide: revenue from LPWA connectivity will be low and subject to intense pricing pressure as new connectivity suppliers enter the market
Worldwide: the largest share of revenue will come from the automotive sector, despite large numbers of LPWA connections from elsewhere
Worldwide: China will continue to be the largest single IoT market in 2027
Western Europe
Western Europe: LoRa operators took an early lead in the western European LPWA market in terms of connection numbers, but NB-IoT will dominate by 2027
Western Europe: the automotive sector’s share of IoT revenue will decline during the forecast period because LPWA connectivity will spur growth in new sectors
Central and Eastern Europe
Central and Eastern Europe: operators are deploying NB-IoT across the region and are trialling new services based on this technology
Central and Eastern Europe: LPWA networks in the region are expanding, and LPWA technology will start to contribute significantly to revenue growth
21.Middle East and North Africa
22.Middle East and North Africa: LPWA network deployment has been slower than in other developed regions; there are currently only three commercial networks
Middle East and North Africa: the total IoT value chain revenue will grow to over USD6.9 billion; 12% of this will come from connectivity
Sub-Saharan Africa
Sub-Saharan Africa: South Africa dominated the region’s IoT market in 2018, and generated 67% of all regional connections
Sub-Saharan Africa: new entrants will compete fiercely for connectivity contracts, and connectivity ARPC will probably decline as a result
Emerging Asia–Pacific excluding China
Emerging Asia–Pacific excluding China: 2G networks currently support the majority of IoT connections, but this technology will be superseded by NB-IoT by 2027
Emerging Asia–Pacific excluding China: few operators in the region are well-positioned to capture a large share of IoT revenue beyond connectivity
China
China: China will be the largest 5G IoT market in the world by 2027 in terms of connections; almost 50% of all 5G IoT connections will come from China by 2027
China: Chinese operators are investing significantly to develop applications and sector-specific services
Developed Asia–Pacific
Developed Asia–Pacific: operators in the region have been slow to exploit the IoT opportunity, but investment in IoT is growing
Developed Asia–Pacific: the total IoT value chain revenue will grow to 27.6 billion in 2027, and regional operators will increase their investments to take a larger share
36.North America
North America: the USA is one of the most successful IoT markets; the number of IoT connections will grow to 947 million by 2027
North America: the region will generate the highest IoT revenue of all regions worldwide in 2027 (USD51 billion)
Latin America
Latin America: Brazil is the largest IoT market in the region; it had over 20 million connections in 2018 and accounted for 54% of all regional IoT connections
Latin America: IoT connectivity revenue will grow to USD1.6 billion across the region, 40% of which will come from LPWA connectivity in 2027
