The global LTE IoT market size to grow at a CAGR of 28.4% during the forecast period
The Long-Term Evolution (LTE) Internet of Things (IoT) market size is expected to grow from USD 800 million in 2018 to USD 2800 million by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 28.4% during the forecast period. The growth of connected devices, and the need for unique and defined network qualities are the major growth factors for the LTE IoT market. However, operational downtime due to network infrastructure deployment could restrain the market growth.

Managed services segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
Managed service providers operating in this market deliver their expertise in managing various operating activities (including infrastructure management, security operations, and cloud operations) to clients, enabling them to launch various Machine-to-Machine (M2M) offerings rapidly, at a variable cost. With global coverage, the managed service provider offers customers comprehensive and cost-effective solutions. These managed service providers leverage partnerships with prime satellite and mobile networks to offer high-end managed services to application providers, system integrators, and end-user clients.

Europe to hold the largest market size and APAC to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Europe is leading the LTE IoT market due to the widespread adoption of the LTE technology for enterprises’ IoT applications. The region is leading in terms of LTE IoT coverage area. Huawei and Vodafone opened an open lab in Newbury, UK, for R&D of LTE IoT technologies and applications. The stage has been set for the widespread deployment of LTE IoT by cellular operators in the UK and rest of Europe. Various pre-commercial trials and plots have been deployed by Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) across Europe.

APAC has witnessed advanced and dynamic adoption of new technologies and has always been a lucrative market for telecom service providers. APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period in the LTE IoT market. APAC includes countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Singapore, who act as the early adopters of smart technology. In addition, these countries possess developed technological infrastructure, which promotes increasing adoption of telecom services and applications in this region.
