Weightless LPWAN Devices Market Segment Analysis- By End-User industry
By end-user industry, the Weightless LPWAN Devices market is segmented into General Manufacturing, healthcare, transportation & logistics, power generation, oil & gas, utilities (water & wastewater, electricity, gas), agriculture, electronics & semiconductors, mining, food & beverage, automotive and others. Agriculture sector is anticipated to witness significant amount of growth of CAGR of 42.5%; followed by a healthcare LPWAN market with a growth of CAGR 40.9% during the forecast period 2021-2026. With an increasing demand for IoT technologies, connected devices and digital platforms in agricultural sector, the farmers face connectivity issues. LPWAN network has been poised to be more suitable for agriculture sector owing to its cost effectiveness, better connectivity and network coverage. LPWAN is widely used for smart farming applications and precision agriculture. The UN FOOD and Agriculture Organization estimated that by 2050, to meet the demand of rapidly growing world population, food production has torise by 60% and according to the recent studies, precision agriculture using IoT technologies can assist this. LPWAN provides better connectivity to the sensors along with the actuators that gathers the data about soil health, chemical composition, humidity and environment from the nodes of the sensors and actuatorscomposed in Wireless Sensor and Actuator Network protocol. Apart from this, farmers can monitor their farm assets, cattle, control irrigation process and others better with LPWAN network. Furthermore, the growth of healthcare industry is primarily driven by wide adoption of smart monitoring systems and IoT in healthsector. The demand for reliable communication system and requirement for patient’s safetymeasures facilitates the adoption of IoT in this sector, therefore increasing the demand for Weightless LPWAN Devices. In addition, the current Covid-19 pandemic has opened up new growth avenues for LPWAN based health monitoring devices for monitoring patients remotely within healthcare institutions. Thus, these factors ultimately contribute to the market growth.
