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 the new data at the application level. 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 forecasts are presented in 16 charts and 24 tables, based on 8 application groups: Connected Business, Connected Car, Connected Cities, Connected Consumer Electronics, Connected Energy, Connected Health, Connected Home, and Connected Industry. This is the final of the three Research Notes used to distribute and comment on the market-share data. Machina Research intends to update the forecasts in the fourth quarter of 2017.
