M2M refers to machine to machine communication between any devices, including wired as well as wireless. It can include industrial instrumentation with a sensor to communicate with the application software about the recorded data, viz temperature, inventory level, no. of units, etc.
Therefore, recent M2M communication has turned into a system of networks that transmits data into personal appliances. Proliferation of IP networks around the globe has enhanced M2M communications.
The global scenario for machine to machine communications is widening in emerging countries. Growing need for data reliability and efficiency, embedded telecommunications have paved a way for growth in the global market. Moreover, the decreasing cost of connectivity has also enabled the vendors to adopt an inclined approach towards wireless communications for its benefits. With cost-effective connectivity, the M2M devices are utilized widely across various verticals especially in insurance and automotive sectors. Even small scale enterprises are now adopting M2M value-added services to ensure vehicle safety and security of vehicles and drivers.
As fleet management market helps in tracking and monitoring details about driver, material location, and other important details about vehicles, it is another value-added segment that will boost the M2M value-added services. Technologically, it uses GPS for tracking and monitoring purposes in real-time. The marine sector is largely benefitted by GPS and GIS technology too. GIS helps in enabling secured transportation of freight and cargo. Enabling GPS technology in modes of transport to spot geographic locations in real-time minimizes the costs and damages too.
With all the crucial factors mentioned above, the global cellular M2M market is projected to reach at a higher CAGR for the forecast period.
Cellular machine to machine market witnesses a wide range of applications in verticals such as automotive, healthcare, retail, transport and logistics, manufacturing, energy and utilities, and consumer electronics.
On the basis of geography, the global machine to machine cellular market is segmented into North America, Europe, Middle-east, Africa, and Asia Pacific. North America is forecasted to grow as a favorable market for M2M technology. Asia-Pacific and other regions are in emerging stages for this market. The emerging markets are forecasted to witness a greater scope for M2M cellular devices for the forecasted period. Moreover, a huge ROI is expected in cellular M2M value-added services in the emerging markets owing to good chances of augmented performance in M2M value-added services.
