Introduction

Ovum's Cellular Machine-to-Machine Forecast is an Excel spreadsheet that provides quantitative information on cellular M2M connections, service provider revenue by industry vertical, and service provider revenue by service layer, as well as wireless carrier service revenue.

Highlights

  • The number of cellular M2M connections will increase to 660 million by 2020, at which point $81bn will be generated in total annual service revenue. Cellular connections represent the most valuable individual connected assets, as well as points of concentration for loca -area devices.
  • Ovum’s M2M projections are based on a meticulous and granular analysis of actual growth trends. It represents a realistic future for the role of cellular M2M. There remains no "hockey stick" growth but – more importantly – stable and steady growth, at a CAGR of 18% (2014–20).
  • M2M characteristics are fundamentally different from consumer services and need to be judged differently: M2M is a market of incremental, cumulative, long-term business partnerships. Hype is irrelevant and damaging. Cellular M2M is based on carefully considered up-front business propositions and grows organically when it is appropriate to do so..
