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 first snapshot of the new forecast data. Covering the forecasting period from 2017 to 2022, it includes a breakdown of the topline installed base 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 4 different charts and tables. Machina Research will take a deeper dive into the new forecasts – covering them at the application and regional level – in upcoming Research Notes.
