Low power wide area (LPWA) networking protocols are changing the game for utilities worldwide-in particular water and gas utilities-thanks to their relatively low costs and long battery life. Navigant Research expects as LPWA solutions gain traction, they will accelerate the adoption of smart metering and other distribution network applications by all types and sizes of electric, water, and gas utilities.
Water utilities are anticipated to make the widest use of LPWA solutions over the next decade, followed by gas utilities. Water utilities will be driven by a need for better water conservation and to reduce losses, while gas utility deployments will be motivated by safety concerns, regulatory mandates, and cost savings. Use of LPWA solutions by electric utilities will often apply to high device volume applications such as asset monitoring in developed markets (where smart metering networks have already been deployed), and they may be used for metering combined with other grid applications in emerging markets.
This Navigant Research Market Data report anticipates explosive growth in both the number of communications nodes deployed and the revenue generated by utilities investing in LPWA networks for smart metering and other applications. The Excel databook for this report includes a granular view of the deployment of LPWA communications nodes and infrastructure for the following five LPWA protocols: LoRa, Sigfox, Narrowband-Internet of Things (NB-IoT), Random Phase Multiple Access (RPMA), and Long-Term Evolution Category M1 (LTE-Cat-M1). Nearly 100 tables and 45 charts break out the market by protocol, utility type, and region.
