Global Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) Chipset Market: Overview

Narrowband IoT (NB‑IoT) is the new method of communicating with “things” that need limited amounts of data, over long periods, in places that are hard to reach. It is essentially a wireless technology that was standardized by 3GPP in 2016.

Narrowband IoT is considered the best in class low-power wide area (LPWA) technology to facilitate functioning of various new industrial IoT (IIoT) devices, which includes smart parking, wearables, utilities, and industrial solutions. Being a low-power technology, NB-IoT finds use in devices and applications that operate at lower data rates. The technology also extends battery life of devices. The NB-IoT module, which incorporates the NB-IoT chipset, can operate for more than 10 years using a single-cell primary battery. 

Global Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) Chipset Market: Key Trends

Some of the unique perceived benefits of narrowband IoT are that they consume lesser amounts of power, have superb range in closed areas and underground, can be easily outfitted in existing cellular network architecture, and provide network security and reliability. Because of these advantages they are seeing growing uptake and this in turn is boosting demand for narrowband IoT chipset. Besides, lower component costs too is proving beneficial for the market.

Drawbacks of the market are lack of standardization and steep cost of operating. However, the flourishing Internet of Things (IoT), which will likely have over 30 billion connections by 2020, as per IDC, will provide a major fillip to the market. As the market develops further, existing cellular networks may not be sufficient to service it. In fact, most of the newer IoT connections are industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions that require low power wide area (LPWA) technologies for effective connectivity. This is expected to majorly fuel demand for narrowband IoT chipsets.
