Presented by Pyramid Research Analyst, Jan ten Sythoff and Senior Consultant, Daniel Ramos, the May 14th webinar analyzed the key growth drivers and inhibitors of the cellular M2M market, as well as an overview of the value chain and how mobile operators can fit into it – supported by Pyramid's country-by-country and operator-by-operator approach to tracking and forecasting the market.

"Pyramid Research expects to see strong growth in the cellular M2M market, a segment which is outpacing growth of overall mobile operator subscriptions and already represents over 10% of the total for some operators," says Sythoff. "The market is also changing in a number of different ways, including the business models that operators adopt and the various developments in countries and regions around the world."

As explained in the webinar, telematics regulations are important drivers in Brazil and Russia which is also helping the development of ecosystems and partnerships across the value chain to better address the growing opportunity overall. In China, the government is not only looking at different uses of M2M technology, but it is also supporting local industry, helping domestic vendors position themselves better in the global market. India is likewise evolving rapidly; the ecosystem is beginning to mature, and the government is driving initiatives in diverse areas, including transportation, education and agriculture.

Register to watch the webinar today.

The recent webinar was inspired by Sythoff's recent report, Cellular Machine-to-Machine Connections: An Analysis of Growth Drivers and Operator Approaches, which includes case studies on each of the markets mentioned above.  Learn about the report here.
