Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset boasts power efficiency, which is a key aspect in low-power IoT networks. It assists in meeting the requirements of extended coverage of a particular area, especially in rural and deep indoors. The chipset allows device manufacturers to develop low-power, cost-sensitive connected devices at a global scale to monitor, manage, and control critical infrastructure, medical devices, logistic trackers, and a large variety of LPWA applications.
According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset Market by Component, Deployment, Application, and Industry Vertical: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030,” the narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset market size was valued at $425.0 million in 2020, and is projected to reach at $22,105.6 million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 52.1% during the forecast period.
The key driving forces of the global narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset industry are rise in adoption of IoT devices and surge in penetration of cellular IoT networks. However, availability of alternative low power wide area (LPWA) technologies such as long-term evolution machine type communication (LTE-M) hampers the adoption of NB-IoT technology, thereby restraining the global market growth. Moreover, NB-IoT can be used only low-speed applications, which limits its use in high-speed applications, thus acting as a major barrier for the narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset market growth. On the contrary, increase in trend of smart cities to enhance sustainable development is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the market growth during the forecast period.
