Global Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Connections Market to Reach US$ 30.6 Billion by 2032, Fueled by Rising Penetration of Wireless Technologies

April 26, 2023 | Electronics and Semiconductors

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­­Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Connections Market Report by Connection Type (Wired, Wireless), Technology (Serial Connection, Power Line Connection, Cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Others), End Use Industry (Automotive, Healthcare, Consumer Electronics, Transportation, Utilities, Retail, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global machine-to-machine (M2M) connections market size reached US$ 21.2 Billion in 2023. Machine-to-machine (M2M) is a technology that allows a network of devices to share and exchange information and perform tasks without the manual assistance of humans. It employs sensors, radio frequency identification (RFID), Wi-Fi, and cellular communication links to capture data fed through networks and provide critical input to various machines. It operates over data endpoint (DEP), communication networks, and data integration point (DIP), which mainly schedules data transfers. M2M helps reduce costs by minimizing equipment maintenance and downtime, increases revenue by providing new business opportunities for servicing products, and improves customer service by monitoring and servicing equipment before it fails or needs maintenance. As a result, it is widely adopted across the healthcare, utilities, and banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) sectors.

Global Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Connections Market Trends:

The increasing proliferation of wireless devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, and smart speakers, and the easy access to high-speed internet through cellular networks or short-range networks like Wi-Fi are primarily driving the global M2M connections market growth. Besides this, increasing automation across various industrial verticals and the escalating demand for effective predictive maintenance systems for real-time collection of data and continuous analysis of equipment conditions are presenting remunerative growth opportunities for the market. Moreover, the increasing demand for smart grids due to the rising development of smart cities, rapid urbanization, inflating disposable income of individuals, and surging demand for smart homes and connected devices, is creating a positive outlook for the market expansion. In addition to this, M2M connections are extensively used across the healthcare sector in various medical devices to diagnose and treat different health conditions, which is favoring the market growth. This is further influenced by the growing prevalence of numerous chronic diseases, significant improvements in the healthcare infrastructure, and rising demand for remote patient monitoring. Furthermore, the large-scale product adoption across the utility sector for harvesting energy (oil and gas), analyzing worksite conditions (like pressure, temperature, and equipment status), and automatically billing customers’ electricity or water usage is aiding in market expansion. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 30.6 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4% during 2024-2032.
