The Global M2M/IoT Terminal Market is the second consecutive strategy report analysing the latest developments on the cellular router, gateway and modem market. This strategic research report provides you with more than 110 pages of unique business intelligence including 5 years industry forecasts and expert commentary on which to base your business decisions.

Cellular terminals are defined as standalone devices intended for connecting machines to a cellular network. These include primarily general-purpose cellular routers, gateways and modems that are enclosed in a chassis with at least one input/output port. Trackers, telematics devices and other specialised devices are excluded from this report. The researcher has found that 4.9 million M2M terminals were sold globally during 2016 at a total market value of approximately US$ 875 million. The Asia-Pacific region was the largest market in terms of annual shipments during 2016 with about 1.93 million units sold in the region. Europe was with 1.44 million sold units the second largest global market, followed by the Americas with shipments of about 1.40 million units.

In terms of revenues, the Americas is a considerably larger market than Asia Pacific and Europe with an estimated US$ 350 million in revenues compared to US$ 260 million and US$ 245 million respectively. Average terminal prices in North America have increased as a result of a high share of 4G LTE routers and gateways in the product mix. The researcher forecasts that shipments of M2M terminals will grow at a CAGR of 18.8 percent in the next five years to reach 13.7 million units in 2022.

The M2M terminal vendor landscape is more fragmented than the M2M module market. Two M2M terminal vendors have a global market share of more than 10 percent each. Berg Insight ranks China-based SIMCom as the market leader with US$ 181 million in revenues from sales of approximately 1.7 million terminals.

US based Cradlepoint is the second largest provider with an estimated US$ 115 million in revenues from terminal sales. Top players further include Sierra Wireless and Digi International which generated US$ 72 million and US$ 47 million respectively from their terminal businesses. These four vendors held a combined market share of close to 50 percent in 2016. Other notable vendors are CalAmp, MultiTech Systems, Encore Networks and Systech in North America, Xiamen Four-Faith, Maestro Wireless, InHand Networks, Robustel Technologies and NetComm Wireless in the Asia-Pacific region, and Teltonika, HMS Networks, Advantech B+B SmartWorx, NetModule, Matrix Electrnica, Eurotech, Gemalto, Dr. Neuhaus and Option in Europe.
