Press Release

The global NB-IoT chipset market accounted for a value of USD 395 million in 2019 and is projected to register growth at a CAGR of 37.1% during forecast period.

COVID-19 has impacted the NB-IoT chipset market. The manufacturing units have to temporarily shut down and the logistics and supply chain got disrupted due to travel restriction and lockdown imposed to control transmission of corona virus. The export and import activities are suspended in major countries due to fear of spread of corona virus. Due to these factors, the market growth for NB-IoT chipset market is likely to be slow during forecast period.
