Key Findings
- In Africa and the Middle East, M2M is growing fast and providing new revenue streams for operators. Growth is driven by a number of different factors, including the evolution of the technology, M2M's ability to address end-user pain points in specific markets, the state of regulations and business model innovations.
- Pyramid Research expects cellular M2M SIMs to account for 3.2% of total mobile subscriptions in the AME region at year-end 2018, led by the utility segment with 45% of all M2M SIMs. The telematics/fleet management vertical will, however, generate the most mobile service revenue, rising at a CAGR of 13% from 2013 to 2018.
- As core telecom lines of business - voice, SMS - become commoditized, more and more AME operators, ranging from Vodacom to Turkcell, are investing in M2M. But each market is different: for example, while M2M in the UAE serves primarily the utilities/smart city vertical, South African M2M is focused on the automotive market.
