Dublin, Dec. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Cellular IoT Gateway Market - 4th Edition" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.5 percent, annual shipments are expected to reach 8 million in 2023. North American vendors dominate the cellular IoT gateway and router market.

The Global Cellular IoT Gateway Market is the fourth consecutive strategy report analysing the latest developments on the cellular router, gateway, and modem market. This strategic research report provides you with more than 130 pages of unique business intelligence including 5-year industry forecasts and expert commentary on which to base your business decisions.

More than 3.4 million cellular IoT gateways were shipped globally during 2018, at a total market value of approximately US$ 921 million.

Cradlepoint, Cisco, Sierra Wireless, CalAmp and Digi International are the largest vendors worldwide. Combined, these five vendors generated close to US$ 500 million in annual revenues from cellular IoT gateway and router sales during 2018, accounting for a market share of 53.3 percent.

Other important vendors include Multitech Systems, Systech and Encore Networks in the US, InHand Networks, Robustel and NetComm in the Asia-Pacific region, and HMS Networks, Advantech B+B SmartWorx, Matrix Electrnica, NetModule, Eurotech, Westermo and Option in Europe. The European and Asia Pacific markets are fragmented with a large number of small and medium-sized players that generate annual revenues in the range of US$ 3-10 million.

The North American market is dominated by a handful of major vendors, largely due to entry barriers in the form of carrier certifications required for cellular devices in the region. North America experienced the fastest growth globally during 2018, driven by deployments in the public safety, transportation and retail sectors. The region has also been subject to significant merger and acquisition activity in recent time. Deal activity has been low over the past decade but has picked up since the beginning of 2018. Examples include the recent deals such as Lantronix' purchase of Maestro Wireless Solutions in July 2019 and most recently Digi International's announced acquisition of Opengear in November 2019.

In Europe, Westermo acquired the remote access specialist Virtual Access in November 2019, expanding the company's presence in the utilities sector. Several players continue to have inorganic growth as a strategy and further consolidation can be expected among IoT gateway vendors in 2019-2020.
