IoT in Europe: Market opportunities and main applications

Summary

IoT refers to the holistic interconnection of services, applications, business processes, people and devices with the network or Internet in order to share information and perform certain tasks without any human interventions.

Europe will be the leading region, accounting for 36% of all connections, followed by the Americas (28%). We forecast total connections to reach 4.8bn by the end of 2020. IoT connections are rapidly growing in Europe and we forecast total connections to reach 1.8bn in 2020, growing at a CAGR of 38.5% in 2016-20. This growth is based on the fast take-ups of IoT in several verticals, including smart metering, connected cars and government, among others.

Vodafone Germany has partnered with some major car and motorbike manufacturers in Europe on connected cars. Orange France provides integrated solutions for fleet management to French car manufacturers PSA Group and Renault. In terms of pioneering operators, Telefónica Spain was the first to launch smart city solutions across Spain while O2 was the first telco in the UK to launch smart homes services in 2016.

Diversification of connectivity will keep telcos at the center of the IoT environment, while expansion in 5G and NB-IoT will enhance cellular M2M efficiency. Big data will enable telcos to sell information within legal frameworks and generate new revenue streams. Partnerships between telcos and vendors will enable new products to have technology directly embedded.
