Market Insight

Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset is an integral part of the IoT devices that enables an NB-IoT network and a Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN). The NB-IoT chip improves the power consumption, system capacity, and spectrum efficiency of the devices. Moreover, with NB-IoT chips, the prices of IoT devices drop significantly. The lower price of the NB-IoT chip is attributed to the underlying technology which is much simpler than the current GSM/GPRS technology. Such advantages of NB-IoT have propelled its popularity among various end-use industries. The players in the market are focusing on developing innovative products to boost growth.


The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic had a fairly positive impact on the global NB-IoT chipset market over the short term as well as the long term. The sale of IoT consumer devices suddenly dropped for the second quarter of 2020. However, it increased drastically over the third, and fourth quarters of 2020. Many people were stuck inside their homes, so they spend on smart appliances such as smart-home speakers, smart washing machines, smart ACs, and smart lights. Moreover, several industries adopted automation during the pandemic due to concern over infection and labor shortage. The smart appliances and industrial automation machines have NB-IoT chipset inside them. Thus, the increased sale of smart appliances and higher adoption of industrial automation augmented the growth of the NB-IoT chipset market during the pandemic. However, the production of the NB-IoT chipset was hampered severely during the period of the COVID-19 pandemic. Government restrictions coupled with lack of labor during the pandemic dropped the production of the NB-IoT chipsets. Nevertheless, as the pandemic crisis subside, the production of the NB-IoT chipset came back to a pre-pandemic state.


The increasing demand for smart manufacturing and the growing adoption of IoT technology boosts the market growth. NB-IoT provides reliable networks and offers excellent secure connections for IoT devices by assimilating security into the network architecture. Moreover, the increase in demand for data processing is further driving the NB-IoT chipset market growth. The collected data is processed through sensors and real-time tracking of business operations across numerous industrial sectors. The sensors and tracking devices are integrated with the NB-IoT chipset. Furthermore, providing back operations that require real-time access to data changes instantly and augments the demand for ultra-low latency from various sectors. This, in turn, is likely to boost the market growth for the NB-IoT chipset. On the other hand, high upfront costs for infrastructural establishment are the major restraining factors for market growth. Nonetheless, the changing consumer landscape and business environment are expected to offer promising opportunities to the market in the near future.


Among the geographies, the North America region accounted for the largest share in the global NB-IoT markets owing to a rise in strategic trails to launch IoT technologies and equipment in this region. Furthermore, OEMs across the North America region are anticipated to offer numerous solutions to their IoT infrastructures. This has offered a positive approach toward commercializing IoT networks. However, the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest rate in the global NB-IoT markets over the projection period. This is accredited to a continuous increase in penetration of smartphones and an increase in demand for narrow bandwidth applications that induces wireless network service providers to deploy 5G technology in their network.
