"Although 4G represents a viable option for automotive applications, it does not address the low-cost, low-power requirements of the majority of IoT applications. These will be addressed by LPWA, which will support the majority of all wireless IoT connections by 2026."

IoT devices have traditionally been supported by 2G networks in most markets. 4G will accommodate more sophisticated applications such as connected vehicles, but the rise of LPWA technologies will provide viable substitutes to 2G for the mass market of IoT devices. Migration to new networks will, however, be a long term process.

- information about IoT connections worldwide, in eight regions and for several selected countries in 2017, plus forecasts for an additional 9 years
- analysis of key trends as well as drivers and barriers of IoT networks
- analysis of the emerging LPWA market including an overview of network announcements, launches and connections (split by NB-IoT, LTE-M and other LPWA (Sigfox, LoRa and so on))
- analysis of the existing cellular IoT market and connections split by 2G, 3G/4G and 5G.

    • I have had negative experiences with market research reports before. How can you avoid this from happening again?
    • We advise all clients to read the TOC and Summary and list your questions so that we can get more insight for you before you make any purchase decision. A research advisor will accompany you so that you can compare samples and reports from different sources, and choose the study that is right for you.

  • Report Delivery
    • How and when I will receive my Report?
    • Most reports are delivered right away in a pdf format, while others are accessed via a secure link and access codes. Do note that sometimes reports are sent within a 12 hour period, depending on the time zones. However, you can contact us to escalate this. Should you need a hard copy, you can check if this option is offered for the particular report, and pay the related fees.
  • Payment conditions
    • What payment methods do you accept?
      1. Credit card : VISA, American Express, Mastercard, or
      2. You can download an invoice to pay by wire transfer, check, or via a Purchase Order from your company, or

    • All companies based in France must pay a 20% tax per report. The same applies to all individuals based in the EU. All EU companies must supply their VAT number when purchasing to avoid this charge.
    • I’m not satisfied. Can I be refunded?
    • No. Once your order has been processed and the publisher has received a notification to send you the report, we cannot issue any refund or cancel any order. As these are not ‘traditional’ products that can be returned, reports that are dispatched are considered to be ‘consumed’.
  • User license
    • The license that you should acquire depends on the number of persons that need to access the report. This can range from Single User (only one person will have the right to read or access the report), or Department License (up to 5 persons), to Site License (a group of persons based in the same company location), or Corporate License (the entire company personnel based worldwide). However, as publishers have different terms and conditions, we can look into this for you.
