Global NB-IoT Chipset Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

NB-IoT chipset is a low power, wide area network (LPWAN) chipset that allows devices to connect to the internet. It is important because it allows for devices to connect to the internet without using a lot of power, which makes it ideal for use in devices that need to stay powered on for long periods of time.


The global standalone market size was valued at USD 1.6 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for IoT chipsets from various application areas such as automotive, healthcare, manufacturing, retail among others.


In-band is a term used in communication systems to refer to information that is sent along with the main signal. In NB-IoT chipset, in band refers to control and status signals of the radio frequency front end and back end. The need for these signals arises from their use by base station equipment or mobile devices for controlling and monitoring purposes.

Application Insights:

The application segment is segregated into six broad categories, namely agriculture, automotive & transportation, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, retail and others. The automotive & transportation sector accounted for the largest share in terms of revenue as well as volume in 2017. The growing adoption of NB-IoT technology across various industries such as telecommunication and transport is anticipated to boost the growth of this segment over the forecast period.

The energy sector is also expected to witness significant growth owing to increasing penetration of IoT devices that collect data from sensors and transmit it via wireless channels for processing by cloud servers or local stations. This enables utilities to manage their assets efficiently while improving customer services through remote monitoring and control applications across a wide range of sectors including smart cities development along with agriculture and manufacturing where IoT has been implemented at a large scale over recent years.

Regional Analysis:

The North American regional market accounted for the largest share in 2017 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing adoption of IoT technology across various sectors, such as manufacturing, healthcare, retail & e-commerce, and others. Moreover, presence of prominent players in this region will increase IoT-based services availability thereby driving demand for NB-IoT chipset solutions.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to emerge as a lucrative regional market with a CAGR exceeding 20% during the forecast period owing to increased deployment of network infrastructure supporting emerging technologies such as NB-IoT and 5G. Furthermore, growing number of smart city projects across countries such as China and India are also contributing toward industry growth in APAC region. For instance; In October 2018; China Telecom Corporation Ltd.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for low-power and low-cost chipsets for IoT applications
  • Proliferation of 5G networks and the development of NB-IoT standards
  • Growing demand from automotive, industrial, and smart city sectors
  • Rapid expansion of LPWA networks worldwide
  • Advances in semiconductor technology
