The machine-to-machine (M2M) market will see 95 million cellular modules shipping in 2013, ABI Research said in its latest report, “Cellular M2M Markets” yesterday.
Telemetry and telematics will account for 73 million of those connections, with wireless local loop also play a role.\
The world economy and a recession could negatively impact the M2M predictions, ABI analyst Sam Lucero said. Meanwhile, a short-term obstacle is the lack of mature M2M development tools, he said.
Some of the M2M field’s leaders are looking to develop trade associations and new standards, however, Lucero previously said those issues are less important.
