The intensely-followed Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) market is set to enter a new phase in the course of 2017, as the players behind the incumbent technology options speed up their expansion and the new 3GPP standards finally appear on the scene. To provide more granular insight on the future direction of this space, Machina Research has compiled new forecasts that break the installed base of LPWA connections down into the individual technologies. This Research Note presents and analyzes the second set of the new forecast data, providing a geographical overview of the LPWA market. Covering the forecasting period from 2017 to 2022, it includes a breakdown of the regional installed bases by seven different technologies: FlexNet, LoRa, LTE Cat-M1, LTE Cat-NB1, RPMA, Sigfox, Telensa, as well as the group “Others”. The data is presented in 12 charts and 18 tables, based on 6 forecasting regions: Developed Asia-Pacific, Emerging Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Africa, and North America. Country-level highlights and market drivers are discussed under each region. Machina Research will continue the analysis of the new forecasts – covering them at the application level – in another upcoming Research Note.
