Cellular Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the integration of telecommunication devices with the internet. It utilizes advanced technologies, such as 3G, 4G, 5G and Low Power Wide Area (LPWA), for establishing reliable connections through various hardware devices and sensors. It is widely used for asset, warehouse and workforce management, remote plant monitoring, automation, cloud-based robotics, traffic management and telematics in smartwatches and fitness bands. Cellular IoT solutions simplify global deployment, establish a secured connection with other shared networks and support both low and high bandwidths. As a result, they find extensive applications across various industries, including agriculture, environment monitoring, healthcare, manufacturing, automotive and energy.

Cellular IoT Market Trends:
Significant growth in the telecommunications industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, rapid digitization and the increasing requirement for automation across industries are providing a thrust to the market growth. Medium and large-scale organizations are widely adopting Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) and Long-Term Evolution for Machines (LTE-M) solutions. These technologies can be integrated with the existing mobile networks to provide enhanced end-to-end security, device-level access and authentication and encrypted data transfer. Additionally, integration of the IoT, embedded sensors, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with automobile systems are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Automotive manufacturers combine wireless communication into both luxury and economy vehicles to facilitate in-vehicle communication, vehicle-to-vehicle communication and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. In line with this, these technologies are also used for smart metering, weather monitoring, infrastructure security and flood and agricultural management. Other factors, including increasing commercialization of 5G, along with significant infrastructural developments, especially in the developing economies, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
