NB-IoT Chipset Market Expected to be Fragmented; Likely to Register a Significantly High Growth Rate during the Forecast Period
NB-IoT chipsets are hardware components that are mandatory for enabling an NB-IoT network and a Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN). Increasing awareness about the advantages associated with IoT, with the increasing penetration of the same, has propelled the demand for NB-IoT networks as well as NB-IoT chipsets across the globe, especially across emerging countries such as India, China, and Mexico.
As NB-IoT is a major segment of cellular IoT and it enables an IoT M2M environment even in the absence of the Internet, it is expected to witness a high growth rate. Owing to the same, initiatives have also been undertaken by the governments of various countries in collaboration with telecom service providers such as Vodafone. This has boosted the demand for hardware components such as NB-IoT chipsets/modules.

Growth in the LTE market is expected to boost the in-band segment
In this report, PMR has segmented the global NB-IoT chipset market on the basis of deployment type, device, and industry vertical. By deployment type, the NB-IoT chipset market is segmented into in-band, guard band, and standalone.
Among the three segments, the standalone segment was witnessed to hold the minimum market share in 2018 in the global NB-IoT chipset market. Due to the complexities associated with the standalone deployment type segment, the same trend is expected to be witnessed in the global NB-IoT chipset market during the forecast period.
In addition, the increasing deployment of LTE across the globe, as it integrates easily with the in-band deployment model, is expected to be among the factors boosting the deployment segment during the forecast period. Thus, while the standalone segment of the NB-IoT chipset market is expected to witness a decline in its NB-IoT chipset market share during the forecast period, the in-band segment is expected to witness a gain in its share in the NB-IoT chipset market during the forecast period.
However, due to the easy integration of LTE-M with LTE (as compared to the integration of NB-IoT with LTE), a higher preference for the same has been witnessed in some of the countries, especially across the U.S., in the cellular IoT market. Thus, the higher preference for LTE-M is hampering the growth of the global NB-IoT chipsets market.
