The narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset market is witnessing significant investment in developing the technology. Many telecommunication companies are supporting the technology, and thus are developing NB-IoT networks. These networks significant boost the demand for chipsets, which, in turn, augments the growth of the global market. Furthermore, chipset manufacturers are introducing new products in the market that are highly efficient to integrate in the IoT devices.

Rise in adoption of IoT devices and increase in internet penetration is the prime factors that drive growth of the narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset industry. Furthermore, surge in cellular IoT networks to cover the whole population accelerates the market growth rapidly. Moreover, it has better penetration in structures and better data rates compared to unlicensed band based standards such as LoRaWAN and Sigfox, which is opportunistic for the market growth. Considering these factors, the narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset market is anticipated to experience steep growth in the future.

Increase in trend of smart cities to facilitate sustainable development globally is expected to offer lucrative opportunity for the expansion of the global narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset market growth during the forecast period. However, availability of alternative low power wide area (LPWA) technologies such as long-term evolution machine type communication (LTE-M) acts a major restraint of the market. In addition, NB-IoT is used for low-speed applications only, which limits its usage for various high-speed applications such as video surveillance, thus hampering the market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the global supply chains, owing to partial or complete lockdown imposed by various countries. Furthermore, majority of countries halted the international trade with the fear of spreading the virus. Consequently, substantial decline was witnessed in the supply of connectivity hardware. This resulted in decreased growth of the narrowband IoT chipset industry globally. 

The narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) chipset market share is segmented into component, deployment, application, industry vertical, and region.
