IoT for Transportation Forecast, 2015-2020: Connecting warehouses, fleets, and the whole supply chain

Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in the Transportation and Warehousing sector are being deployed by a variety of organizations in enterprises and governments. The key drivers for the use of IoT in the Transportation and Warehousing sector, like those of most industries, are increased profitability, increased productivity and improved efficiency. Additionally, this sector is turning to IoT to meet its need for increased safety, security and regulatory compliance.

Many organizations in the transportation industry were early adopters of M2M solutions and are now in replacement cycles. These organizations now have a greater choice of sophisticated IoT solutions from an expanding group of vendors.

This market study defines the Internet of Things, the networks that support IoT, and the benefits and issues surrounding its deployment. Further, the study discusses the use of IoT in the different areas of the Transportation and Warehousing sector, which includes Oil and Gas Pipeline, and the specific solutions being provided by vendors.

Finally, the market study provides a five-year forecast of the total addressable market of the Transportation and Warehousing industry in the U.S. and the actual number of connections for IoT devices in the Transportation and Warehousing industry. These devices could connect on a cellular 3GPP network, such as the AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint or T-Mobile networks, or the connected devices might use a mobile satellite communications network, such as those provided by Inmarsat, Globalstar, Globecomm, or Orbcomm. The connected devices might also use a LPWA network built specifically to support IoT, as provided by companies, such as SIGFOX and Ingenu.
