M2M (Machine-to-Machine) is the flow of data from a physical object to another, without human intervention. M2M technology has resulted in the opening up of a huge market opportunity which would benefit mobile companies, mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs), service aggregators and others.
M2M has also facilitated network connectivity among devices, initiating the IoT (Internet of Things) industry. While the internet had already connected devices to each other, human mediators were almost always required up until present. However, technological advancements will henceforth make the internet dynamic and facilitate a global network of smart devices, applications, vehicles, sensors, appliances, etc. that are able to establish real-time communication.
Experts opine that proliferation of connected machines, evolution of analytical capabilities, and decline of economic and technological barriers are creating limitless possibilities in the M2M and IoT space. According to recent research, IoT will include close to 27 billion devices by 2020, worldwide. Higher affordability of cloud computing, storage and bandwidth, and higher speed networks, are enabling devices to connect to the internet, and with each other.
Global M2M and IoT ecosystem market is anticipated to exceed USD 248 billion by 2020. To realize the full potential of the market, various stakeholders will need to work in synchronization. Key challenges for businesses to adopt M2M and IoT technology include security and privacy, interoperability, and lasting economic value.
The market is categorized as per end-users, applications, technologies, and regions. Key vertical end-users include energy & utilities; retail & vending; healthcare; and automotive & transportation. Others like intelligent buildings & infrastructure; asset management; consumer electronics & home automation; and public safety, security & surveillance are also important to growth.
Major application segments encompass metering; security; multimedia & video; tracking & tracing; payments; remote monitoring, maintenance and control; and others. Multimedia & video would account for over 20% of the total global revenues in 2020, owing to rising adoption of LTE in M2M gateways and modules.
Networking technologies comprise wide area networking and short range networking. Satellite, wireline, 2G and 3G cellular, LPWA, LTE and 5G cellular, and others constitute the wide area networking technologies. LPWA would prove lucrative due to benefits like low power and low bandwidth requirements for IoT applications. Short range networking includes Bluetooth and ZigBee, WiFi, and others. There are six chief regional markets viz. North America, Asia Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East & Africa, and Latin & Central America.
