In the first quarter of this year, there were 23.9 million connected devices in the M2M market – a number that will grow to 82.5 million by 2016, according to U.S. Telecom Wired and Wireless Sizing and Share 2011-2016, the latest edition of the telecom industry’s chief source of market share and sizing information by research firm ATLANTIC-ACM.
“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 J. Barnett. “This broad range of opportunities will connect 82.5 million devices by 2016, generating $1.6 billion in revenues to wireless providers.”
