The wireless connectivity market is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of ~13.4 percent between 2018 and 2023

The wireless connectivity market is forecasted to reach ~$95.7B by 2023 from ~$51.0B in 2018, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.42% during the forecast horizon. Advancements in the telecommunications sector and high adoption of smartphones, gained demand for wireless sensor networks for creating smart infrastructure, rised demand for low-power wide-area networks in IoT applications, and increase in the adoption of IoT are some main factors driving the increase of the wireless connectivity market. Nevertheless, the high power consumption by wireless sensors, terminals, and connected devices and lack of uniform communication standards are the restraints for the market increase.

The industry for chipsets established on LTE Cat-M1 technology is anticipated to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) during the outlook period

LTE Cat-M1 is a cellular technology primarily designed for the Internet of Things or machine-to-machine (M2M) communication applications.Compared to other standard cellular technologies including 2G, 3G, or LTE Cat 1, LTE Cat-M1 allows longer battery life and extended range and deep penetration in buildings and basements.

The growth in the adoption of IoT/M2M communication solutions, the increase in the industry demand for longer connectivity, and the need for low-power consumption and low-cost connectivity technologies are driving the sector for chipsets established on LTE Cat-M1 technology.

WLAN-enabled chipsets held the biggest size of the wireless connectivity market in 2017

Modern WLANs are based on the IEEE 802.11 standards. Wi-Fi is an obvious choice for developers due to the pervasiveness of Wi-Fi within a home environment using LANs. The exponential increase in bandwidth, together with the increasing impact of Wi-Fi offload has created a significant demand for a higher throughput over a wireless local area network.

Asia-Pac is expected to display topmost cagr during the estimate period

The rising demand for smartphones and PC peripherals, growing awareness on the benefits of enhanced lifestyle and rised productivity, together with the increasing demand for advanced and latest wireless connectivity protocols in applications including consumer electronics, wearables, and industrial automation tools are the factors that are likely to result in the high rise of the wireless connectivity market in this area. Furthermore, governments of countries including China, India (IN), Japan (JP), and South Korea (KR) are aggressively taking initiatives including investing in Research and development to encourage the adoption of the Internet of Things and related connectivity technologies in the territory are forecast to steer the increase of wireless connectivity market in Asia Pacific (APAC) during the outlook period.
