Machine-to-Machine Services Market Analysis

The Machine To Machine Services Market size is estimated at USD 84.20 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 250.95 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 24.41% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

The world is moving toward industry 4.0, where analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and the internet of things (IoT) are expected to drive intelligence, decision-making, and productivity. In return, this creates a huge opportunity for the machine-to-machine services market.

  • Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, also known as a machine-type communication (MTC), typically refer to the exchange of sensed data or information and decision-making by a group of collaborating machines without human involvement. M2M technology enables a sizable number of devices to be interconnected through the internet, which has resulted in recent rapid development. It can be a favorable enabling key for many fields, particularly the internet of things (IoT) and fifth-generation (5G) networks.
  • Following this, the adoption of wired or wireless connectivity across different industries is also fueling the market. In addition, the penetration of high-speed internet connectivity and the growing adoption of new connectivity technologies, such as 4G/LTE and 5G, is further driving the growth of the M2M connections market.
  • Apart from connectivity, increasing software application integration for product enhancements and adoption of various technologies in manufacturing products for cost-effectiveness and to meet safety regulations are the factors that are expected to support the growth. The growing strategic developments, such as acquisitions and partnerships, are analyzed to boost the market growth rate during the forecast period.
  • For instance, in February 2022, Sensata Technologies announced the acquisition of Elastic M2M Inc., a privately held innovator of connected intelligence for operational assets in the heavy-duty transport, warehousing, supply chain and logistics, industrial, light-duty passenger car, and numerous other business segments. With the help of Elastic M2M's cloud platform and analytics capabilities, telematics service providers ("TSPs") and resellers can employ sensor-based operational data to inform their end users.
  • Further, in May 2022, Sensorise Digital Services, an M2M communication brand, was acquired by Rosmerta Group. By integrating the financial and technological strength of Rosmerta Group in the M2M and IoT arena, Sensorise is therefore prepared for the next expansion stage.
  • However, on the contrary, the high cost of installation of this technology and its maintenance are some of the challenges the market faces, restraining its growth.

Machine-to-Machine Services Market Trends

Telecom Industry to Witness Significant Growth Among Other End-user Verticals

  • M2M systems employ point-to-point communications between hardware, sensors, and machines across wireless or wired networks. Cellular-based M2M is added connectivity process among different sim-enabled machines to provide connectivity over multiple wireless networks. Cellular M2M value-added services are being incorporated in many enterprises to ensure operational efficiency and minimize losses associated with operational breaches.
  • The cellular-based (M2M) is expected to grow during the forecast period because of the introduction of government policies, which enable wider deployment of cellular M2M in key sectors, such as utilities, smart cities, automotive, and healthcare.
  • In September 2022, The Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IITD) and the Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT), the country's prominent telecom R&D facility, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for collaboration in several telecom-related fields, including IoT/M2M, AI/ML, cyber security, and 5G and beyond technologies. C-DOT has engaged in several advanced R&D projects that have resulted in the development of a wide range of products that encompass a variety of technologies in the areas of optical, switching, wireless, security, network management, and cutting-edge telecom software applications. In partnership with local businesses, academics, and startups, C-DOT has played a key role in creating domestic 4G & 5G systems.
  • This MoU attempts to build a mutually beneficial framework for R&D and academic cooperation on encouraging the design and development of entirely indigenous telecom solutions. The platform would catalyze to accelerate the development of innovative concepts into products ready for market.

Asia-Pacific to Witness the Fastest Growth

  • Asia-pacific is analyzed to grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to the adoption of digital technologies in countries such as China, India, etc. Technological advancements like IoT, AI, and Cloud contribute to market growth.
  • According to a three-year plan jointly released by ten government entities in July 2021, China plans to develop 560 million 5G mobile customers by the end of 2023 and increase the penetration rate of fast wireless technology among large industrial firms to 35%. By the end of 2023, China hopes to have reached a 40 percent penetration rate of 5G among individual consumers, with 5G data making up more than half of all online traffic.
  • Further, with the introduction of 5G connectivity in India, various new opportunities are developed to boost the efficiency and security of online transactions and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) transactions. Indeed, one of the primary goals of the Internet of Things (IoT) is to enable businesses to develop automated systems employing Artificial Intelligence (AI) for applications ranging from home appliance management to smart meters and traffic lights. The industry must also specify the parameters of connected technology security regarding devices, connection, secure deployment, and physical security.
  • Further, government initiatives, like smart cities, smart meters, and policies, enabling a wider deployment of cellular M2M initiatives will help the M2M services market to grow.
  • For instance, in February 2022, The Department of Telecom mandated all machine-to-machine service providers to register with the department to address security concerns and interface with telecom companies, among other things. With 5G on the horizon and massive development projects in the M2M/IoT sector, these rules will boost the growth of the communication sector. Additionally, this will encourage companies to create a wide range of innovative applications and solutions for the benefit of citizens.
