Research Highlights

Research Highlights

  • Cellular and LPWA connected smart meters are expected to dominate as a share in security services. While there is still a significant percentage of electricity meters using GSM/GPRS the majority of security revenues will be concentrated in LTE Single-mode Cat M and NB-IoT (NB-LTE).
  • Secure device identity issuance and device identity management are expected to be the key drivers for IoT security services, followed by FOTA and traffic monitoring services.
  • The digitization of traditional grids is among the top priorities for governments worldwide and smart metering applications will continue to increase, albeit with lacking insight onto how security implementations can be properly marketed, leaving a revenue gap across key regions worldwide.
  • As smart metering penetration rate increased rapidly, this is the best time for IoT security players to help governments, utilities and energy suppliers understand how to properly secure and manage their connected assets, streamline operations, and help them navigate the security supply chain.
