    Objectives of the report:

    There has been a lot of movement in the IoT field with the arrival of 5G. With the development of network slicing, a technology mainly intended for IoT. Moreover, regulators are opening frequencies for private networks that private companies would directly license. Furthermore, new 5G connectivity industrial modules are emerging. In general, the value chain is starting to mature and now offers convenient solutions for IoT developments using cellular connectivity; It is expected to solve most of the previously seen IoT adoption and development problems. It also means that the volumes for 5G IoT and cellular IoT, in general, will start their ramp-up quite soon. However, they won’t reach the unrealistic advertised volumes. Indeed, cellular IoT will persist as a combination of niche applications without the awaited expansion into personal area networks, i.e., wearables and consumer electronics. In this context and following our reports on 5G telecom infrastructure and on RF front-ends for mobile handsets, we decided to publish a report dedicated to Cellular IoT and 5G’s impact in this domain. It describes the general market dynamics and offers realistic prospects regarding the market potential at the RF front-end level.
