M2M connected devices predicted to hit 82.5 million by 2016

Posted by Steve RogersonAugust 25, 2011

The number of connected devices in the M2M market will grow to 82.5 million by 2016, according to a report from Atlantic-ACM.

The market research company said that in the first quarter of this year there were 23.9 million connected devices in the M2M market.

The figures appeared in US Telecom Wired & Wireless Sizing & Share 2011-2016, the 18th edition of the telecoms industry’s market sizing study.

“While blockbuster M2M deals – like those with AT&T for Amazon’s Kindle or Verizon’s contract with General Motors’ Onstar – dominate headlines, there are thousands of opportunities for greenfield projects connecting a nearly limitless array of devices to networks,” said Atlantic-ACM analyst Douglas Barnett.

“This broad range of opportunities will connect 82.5 million devices by 2016, generating US$1.6 billion in revenues to wireless providers.”

The quantitative, 300 plus page research document provides detailed, apples-to-apples forecasts by product and company delivering a comprehensive view of the industry.

The research is available in several forms, including individual-use hardcopy, corporate site licence, an interactive forecaster for custom market and data dissection, and Atlantic-ACM’s Wireline & Wireless Market Master subscription, which provides all of these pieces, plus extended research analyst time.
