MNO Strategies in the Cellular M2M Market
Amid a slowdown in their core business of cellphone-based communications, wireless carriers are restructuring to capitalize on the booming market for machine-to-machine (M2M) cellular service.
The number of cellular M2M connections will more than triple by the end of 2017, Global connections will rise to 375 million in 2017, up from 116 million in 2012. In parallel with the rise of connections, revenue generated by cellular M2M services from wireless carriers will explode during the coming years, rising to $22.4 billion in 2016, up from $9.6 billion in 2012.
The rise of M2M comes at a time when the traditional cellphone-based mobile services market is becoming increasingly mature and saturated, with growth slowing particularly in the developed markets like the United States and Western Europe.
