Cellular Connectivity delivers nearly 60% Of M2M connectivity revenues by 2018

New Delhi, India, October 30, 2013: M2M connectivity will be embedded in more than 2 billion devices across nine key industries by 2018, but it will be cellular that will bring the bulk of the value and the connectivity revenues.

A new generation of smart devices is set to have embedded connectivity and manufacturers have a number of technologies to select to deliver network connectivity. ABI Research has examined the demand and appeal for M2M connectivity across cellular, satellite, fixed-line and short-range wireless technologies within nine key industry verticals. Each technology has specific advantages and appeal, but cellular is the best placed to deliver the most value, hence revenues, for the connection.

Jonathan Collins, principal analyst and author of the new report, said, “Looking at demand for connectivity, while cellular will not have the highest number of connections, or the highest average revenue per connection, it will provide the greatest opportunity to drive the most overall value from those connections.”

Industries including Automotive, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Retail, Security, Energy and others will all add connectivity to devices and products in a bid to improve efficiency, cut costs, and improve customer service. Across M2M device connectivity options a combination of mobility, flexibility, coverage and simple connection management, will ensure strong adoption for cellular. The value around that proposition also positions cellular network operators to best leverage a return for those connections.

“Over the forecast period short-range wireless or wireless sensor network connectivity will outpace cellular connection growth, but there is little ability for those connections to directly deliver any revenues for the provision of that connectivity. satellite with higher revenue per connection does not have the same versatility as cellular limiting its appeal to fewer verticals”, Collins added.

These findings are part of ABI Research’s M2M Services and Modules, which includes Research Reports, Market Data, Insights, and Competitive Assessments.
