“Stand-alone deployment to witness highest CAGR in market during forecast period”
In the stand-alone deployment type, NB-IoT is deployed in a dedicated frequency band. The stand-alone deployment type utilizes new bandwidth instead of sharing the existing LTE bandwidth. It is considered as an option when LTE is deployed in a higher band and GSM is still in use to provide coverage for basic services. Moreover, with the growth in the number of NB-IoT-connected devices, the standalone deployment technique, utilizing new bandwidth, is likely to be used.

“Smart Meters to hold largest market followed by smart parking in NB-IoT chipset market”
The growing adoption of water, gas, and electricity smart meters; and favorable government reforms are boosting the implementation of smart meters across the world. Moreover, the demand for long battery life, and low and intermittent data transmission have fueled the adoption of NB-IoT technology for smart metering devices. Moreover, increasing adoption of NB-IoT technology for smart parking application is accelerating its market growth. For instance, in January 2018, Deutsche Telekom (Germany) started deployment of NB-IoT-enabled devices to improve the smart parking system across Hamburg. The company plans to roll-out 11,000 sensors by the end of 2019.

“Energy & utilities to hold largest market size during forecast period followed by infrastructure”
Energy and utilities is expected to hold the largest size of NB-IoT chipset market based on vertical during the forecast period.
