Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) Market Insight

Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) is a low power wide area (LPWA) technology developed to enable a wide range of new IoT devices and services for consumers. NB-IoT significantly improves the power consumption of devices, system capacity, and spectrum efficiency, especially in deep coverage. Narrowband IoT is supported by all major mobile equipment, chipset, and module manufacturers. NB-IoT can co-exist with 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile networks. It further benefits and supports all the security and privacy features of mobile networks, such as support for user identity confidentiality, entity authentication, confidentiality, data integrity, and mobile equipment identification. 

Impact of COVID-19 on Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) Market:

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has acted as a catalyst for the development of automation technologies by global companies, especially in the area of drones for the purpose of surveillance and medicine delivery. 
  • The unprecedented economic impact of COVID-19 on demand and supply, along with implications on geopolitics, and globalization, will influence the future of automation. 
  • The coronavirus pandemic may drive enhancement of automation, digitalization, and artificial intelligence (AI) in the automobile sector in post COVID era to improve resilience to future pandemics. 
  • In a situation like this, automation and robotics could reduce dependence on human labor and increase productivity, preventing the chances of future plant shutdowns. In addition to this, IoT, AI, and digitalization will become extremely relevant going forward and are going to define the new way of working. This lockdown provides us an opportunity to adopt these new trends, thus increasing the opportunities for the Narrowband IoT market in the upcoming years.
