Automotive connectivity revenues expected to rise
Global automotive connectivity revenues will race ahead to $48.3bn by 2027, over five times higher than 2019, generating opportunities and challenges for mobile operators and their infrastructure providers. The full added value revenue opportunity associated with automotive connectivity will be much larger still by around an order of magnitude, rising to around $500bn by 2027.
Sharing assets is key to making 5G affordable
In the first stage of 5G deployment, cost containment is the number one priority for many cellular operators. A new survey of operators, recently released by the RAN Research service of Rethink Technology Research, has revealed the primary tactics to ensure upfront 5G costs are far lower than they were for 4G.
Energy storage to grow cumulatively by 2030
Energy Storage will grow from 6GWh installed today to over 635GWh cumulatively by 2030. Annual additions will go from 6GWh in 2019 to 101GWh by 2030, according to a report out this week from Rethink Technology Research’s Rethink Energy service. Throughout this period of dramatic growth the Asia Pacific region, led by China will dominate installations with 273 GWh out of 635 GWh, or some 43% of all energy storage capacity while the rest...

Satellite IoT market to reach $5.9bn by 2025
The global market for IoT-focused satellite services, focused on end-device connectivity hardware and the annual connectivity fees charged, will grow to $5.9bn in 2025, after taking off in the 2021-2022 period. Incumbent satellite providers will be pressured by a new wave of startups that are leveraging the recent advances in smaller satellite technologies, but many of these new entrants are going to strike out or be absorbed by their larger and ...
Will floating wind platforms deliver power by 2024?
Floating Wind platforms will begin to deliver multiple Gigawatts of electrical power by 2024, and will accelerate to as much as 18.9GW of capacity by 2030. This is the conclusion of a new Rethink Technology Research report from its Rethink Energy service, the first such forecast, entitled ‘Floating Wind on the verge of liftoff - Ten year forecast; bright future’.
Cyber security spending spikes to reach $223.7bn by 2024
Cyber security revenues in 2018 were $160.2bn and will jump an enormous $11.2bn during 2019, as the focus moves to GDPR adherence and adherence to similar legislation. Growth slows to around $9.8bn per annum after this but then spikes once again in 2023/4 as AI based Cyber security escalates, reaching $223.7bn.
IoT endpoints are the key to security revenues
Total global endpoint security revenues will rise three-fold from $2bn per year at present to $6bn by 2023, outstripping the average for cyber security over the next five years, despite security still being a grudge purchase which everybody hates. This is the findings of a report from Riot, the IoT research service of Rethink Technology Research.
