Worldwide Telco-IoT Prominence: Key Benchmarks, Portfolios & Practices 2018-2025 -


The "Worldwide
Telco - IoT Prominence: Key Benchmarks, Portfolios & Practices 2018 to
report has been added to's

This report projects that the number of IoT connections will rise from
about 9.8 billion in 2018 to 15 billion by 2020 and 45 billion by 2025.
Over that same period, operators' IoT revenues will rise from US$12
billion in 2018 to US$55 billion in 2020 and as much US$600 billion in
2025. As a proportion of total revenue of Telcos, IoT revenue will
inevitably grow from 0.7% in 2018 to 30% by 2025.

The Internet of Things (IoT) market is expected to grow strongly in the
coming years, as new services are deployed on top of old technologies,
making the transition for consumers easier and cheaper. The emergence of
IoT is bringing fresh opportunities for Telcos. Moreover, these
opportunities will not only drive both the bottom line and top line of
Telcos, but it will also help in achieving more operational efficiency
as well as additional revenue streams.

Despite the upbeat outlook that has long surrounded it, IoT continues to
underwhelm, as far as most Telcos are concerned. IoT still accounts for
only a small part of Telcos' business. It is also observed that Telcos
are mainly interested in providing connectivity solutions.

Telcos must focus on offering more than just connectivity solutions.
Telcos have a great opportunity to enter into IoT services, and business
intelligence based on data mining. Telcos can also collaborate with
other players in the IoT ecosystem such as hardware providers, and
create multiple solutions for different industry verticals. Apart from
that, a vast amount of data is being generated at Telcos' end, a
goldmine they must start exploring right away!.

Glimpse of Findings

  • Telcos can make their IoT business profitable by just acquiring right
    IoT businesses.
  • 90% IoT players are targeting 50% industry segments. Telcos must
    target rest of the 50% industries which are under-penetrated and hold
    immense potential for growth.
  • Highly successful IoT players invested 50% less than failed or
    mediocre IoT players in the last 5 years. Therefore, a well targeted
    vision and right approach is more important than anything else to be
    successful in IoT market.
  • Industries that aren't technology-based today will constitute 90% of
    total IoT market in the next 10 years. 75% of the organisations will
    increase their IoT spending in the next 2-5 years by up to 200%.
