Global IoT Chipset Market Rocketing Skyward

Analysts at Technavio forecast the global IoT chipset market to grow at a CAGR of more than 13% during the period 2018-2022. The introduction of NB-IoT technology is one of the major trends being witnessed in the market. The introduction of NB-IoT has revolutionized the IoT chipset market and has increased the use of IoT-based chipsets. NB-IoT is a wireless technology, which works on the LPWA network and cannot be operated on LTE-based hardware. The introduction of NB-IoT is a key trend that could positively drive the IoT market. Several factors such as the deployment to a wide area network, increased power efficiency, absence of a gateway for NB-IoT use, cost savings, reliability, and connection to a wide range of frequencies drive the adoption of NB-IoT in the market. NB-IoT technology will allow devices with small form factors and sensors to connect to a licensed narrow bandwidth and will ensure the transfer of data at higher rates.
