            This report provides Transforma Insights’ view on the IoT market for Disposable Devices. This segment comprises the tracking of items with single-use connected devices. Typically, this is conducted by manufacturers tracking items through third parties’ supply chains or vendors tracking parcels through postal or courier services. Manufacturers often look to monitor and track their high-value and theft-prone goods during transport. This becomes important for indicating when goods are damaged, tampered with, lost, or stolen during transit leading to loss and product rejection. As a result of rejected shipments, businesses will not only owe financial compensation to their customers but also face a negative impact on their business reputation. The use of low-cost disposable trackers can help in overcoming these challenges and businesses can limit their dependency on logistics partners for real-time monitoring of their shipments. The report provides a detailed definition of the sector, an analysis of market development and profiles of the key vendors in the space. It also provides a summary of the current status of adoption and Transforma Insights’ ten-year forecasts for the market. The forecasts include analysis of the number of IoT connections by geography, the technologies used (including splits by 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, LPWA, short range, satellite and others), as well as the revenue split between module, value-added connectivity and services.

              The use of video monitoring solutions has unlocked significant improvements, from round-the-clock surveillance for security purposes to object detection, gesture detection, facial recognition, and motion tracking across industries to gain real-time business insights and prescriptive analysis. Using video analytics, businesses can unlock greater value by analysing spatial and temporal information, provide instant alerts in the event of anomaly detection, and take actions when rules are flouted. Business opportunities, deployment challenges, and stakeholder complexities vary across each application. The demand for video analysis is primarily driven by the benefits that it can bring like better operational efficiency, enhanced public safety, and decreased manual work. There is a wide range of applications that can make use of some or all of these business benefits to gain a competitive advantage and provide a quality service or product to the end-user. There are 23 applications, around 7% of the total applications found in our IoT forecast database, for which video analysis can potentially substitute for IoT devices. Livestock Monitoring, Traffic Monitoring, Parking Space Monitoring, Fire and Security Alarms, Patient Tracking, and Trigger devices are some of the key IoT applications which can be substituted with video analysis. As per our analysis, Security Alarms, Stock Level Monitoring, In-Vehicle Road Pricing Devices, and Fire Alarms are the top applications in terms of connected devices that can potentially be replaced by video analysis. The number of IoT devices for the above-mentioned applications is expected to grow from around 0.9 billion in 2022 to around 2.4 billion by 2032. Even though the share of IoT devices that can be replaced by video analytics is expected to be less than 10% during the forecast period, we cannot neglect the potential of video analysis due to its business benefits and varied use cases across applications. Additionally, in cases where video analytics can substitute for LPWA connections, this substitution may represent an upsell opportunity for mobile network operators and an opportunity to deploy a higher bandwidth connection.

                    Over the last 5 years, several communications standards bodies, starting with 3GPP and extending to IEEE and the Bluetooth SIG, have started to develop standards for ‘Ambient IoT’. The aim of the technology is to create ultra-low power, and in many cases battery-free, devices, using energy harvesting and forms of communication that piggyback on other RF sources through a technique known as backscattering. Backscattering is a communication technology that reflects ambient radiowaves to communicate with a receiver, thereby reducing the power required to communicate. Using this technology, Ambient IoT is likely to serve as an alternative for RFID and is significantly useful across multiple industry verticals such as agriculture, consumer, manufacturing, retail, utilities, transportation, and others. The resulting IoT devices are free from the monetary burden of batteries and also aid in environmental sustainability with reduce requirements for battery disposal. Ambient IoT technologies is still in a nascent stage. In this report we provide an overview of the concept, the enabling technologies, the standardisation activities that are currently under way and some of the key use cases where it will likely be useful. It also reviews some existing deployments and trials from Wiliot, HaiLa and Huawei.

This segment comprises ten sub-applications including Baby Alarms, Consumer Webcams, Home Fitness Equipment, Home Weather Stations, Household VoIP Phones, Mirror Screens, Photo Frames, Kitchen Equipment, Fixtures & Fittings, and Other Consumer. One of the principal drivers for smart home devices has been the improved user experience that connected devices offer in comparison to a non-connected equivalent. Many smart home devices gained traction during the COVID-19 pandemic with consumers spending more time indoors and entertaining themselves at home. This has propelled demand for devices such as consumer webcams, household VoIP phones, smart fitness mirrors, and smart coffee makers. Other drivers have been evolving consumer lifestyles, the rising number of women in the workforce, and the greater convenience and control that many devices enable. Many smart home devices require high-speed internet, their presence in the home means that Wi-Fi and Ethernet are both common, although some devices will make use of cellular. Bluetooth connectivity is common too for pairing with other devices and smartphones. The Matter consortium and the Thread protocol are likely to accelerate the prospects of growth and adoption of smart home devices through greater interoperability and an open ecosystem of vendors and developers. The report provides a detailed definition of the sector, analysis of market development and profiles of the key vendors in the space. It also provides a summary of the current status of adoption and Transforma Insights’ ten-year forecasts for the market. The forecasts include analysis of the number of IoT connections by geography, the technologies used (including splits by 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, LPWA, short range, satellite and others), as well as the revenue split between module, value-added connectivity and services. A full set of forecast data, including country-level forecasts, sector break-downs and public/private network splits, is available through the IoT Forecast tool.

                                    This report provides Transforma Insights’ view on the IoT Telemedicine market. This segment comprises mobile and fixed telemedicine solutions. Some of these will be vehicles that connect remote doctors with patients for real-time consultation. Fixed telemedicine solutions include wall-mounted tablets, telemedicine carts, fixed telemedicine monitors, and remote ICUs. Globally, millions of people are uninsured, and many remain inaccessible to primary healthcare services. Fixed and mobile telemedicine solutions can provide affordable (sometimes free) healthcare facilities to underserved and hard-to-reach groups. The use of such solutions not only helps patients but also lessens the burden on healthcare providers through cost savings and efficient utilisation of resources. The report provides a detailed definition of the sector, analysis of market development and profiles of the key vendors in the space. It also provides a summary of the current status of adoption and Transforma Insights’ ten-year forecasts for the market. The forecasts include analysis of the number of IoT connections by geography, the technologies used (including splits by 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, LPWA, short range, satellite and others), as well as the revenue split between module, value-added connectivity and services. A full set of forecast data, including country-level forecasts, sector break-downs and public/private network splits, is available through the IoT Forecast tool.
