Owing to the rising deployment of LPWA technologies, including LTE-M, NB-IoT, and LoRa, low power wide area network (LPWAN) market share is witnessing an increased traction in the recent years. Interestingly, LPWAN networks have emerged as popular choice among enterprises to support various IoT use cases and solutions for business sectors such as agriculture, manufacturing, logistics, and healthcare, among others. Enumerated below are three major factors that are shaping the growth prospects of LPWAN market.
Europe Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) Market Share, By Platform, 2018
Increasing investment by telecom operators in laying NB-IoT and LoRaWAN networks across various cities is benefiting the overall LPWAN industry size
- In 2018, the British telecom operator Vodafone announced NB-IoT network expansions in Spain and Germany, with ambitious plans to double the size of its NB-IoT footprint in Europe by the end of this year.
The NB-IoT network of Vodafone was deployed across Madrid and Valencia in 2017 in a number of verticals such as retail, electricity, agriculture, waste management, and smart city services. This technology has now been expanded to all localities in the cities of Seville, Malaga, Bilbao, and Barcelona, covering a population of about 25,000.
- In 2016, South Korea’s national telecommunications operator SK Telecom joined hands with semiconductors manufacturer Semtech Corporation to roll out LPWAN network across the nation. Additionally, the operator had also declared that it plans to provide 100,000 LoRa devices free of cost to its customers as part of its ‘Partner Hub Program’.
This program has apparently played a vital role in scaling the development and deployment of LoRa devices (based on IoT solutions) and has been of immense significance for expanding the South Korea LPWAN industry size.
- Digital Catapult, the UK’s foremost agency for adoption of digital technologies, announced in 2016 that it is working closely with British telecom firm BT and a few educational institutes to boost the IoT network in London. To that effect, the company launched Digital Catapult Things Connected which will provide about 50 LoRaWAN base stations situated across London – an effort to establish the UK’s largest IoT LoRaWAN network.
Needless to mention, this network and support program will provide an opportunity to digital start-ups and small and medium-scale enterprises to use IoT and drive innovation across London.
Apart from massive expansion programs and large-scale investment, the use of licensed spectrum enables the telecom operators to provide customers with the same levels of security as its LTE network. This makes it immune to disruptive and alternative technologies, essentially opening up numerous business opportunities for LPWAN market players.
