'Cellular M2M Services in Latin America: Redefining the Role of Mobile Operators,' a Telecom Insider Report by Pyramid Research, looks at the cellular M2M opportunity in Latin America. It focuses on the role mobile operators play within the M2M value chain to help them identify M2M strategies, and it analyzes the M2M opportunity on both the demand and supply sides. The first section of the report examines the major forces driving and inhibiting the demand and supply of M2M services; it then sizes the M2M market covering seven vertical application categories: telematics/fleet management, utilities/smart city, security, industrial, financial/retail, health and consumer electronics. The report also presents case studies from Latin America. We conclude with a summary of key findings and recommendations.

Key Findings

* The cellular M2M market in Latin America is booming: Pyramid Research expects the market to grow from US$ 4.6bn in 2014 to nearly US$ 8.2bn by the end of 2019, at a CAGR of 12%. Growth will be driven by the adoption of new regulations and policies, the migration of 2G networks and greater availability of M2M value-added-services (VAS) provided by mobile operators in partnership with technology vendors, local service integrators and vertical specialists. Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico will account for 81% of total M2M connections in Latin America in 2014.
* The expanded availability of vertical offerings is transforming the vertical ecosystems in all major Latin American countries. Among the seven M2M verticals, telematics and fleet management is the most important, and leading operators are looking to sign exclusive agreements with vehicle OEMs, service integrators and vertical specialist to introduce M2M VAS for the telematics and fleet management sector.
* To create customer value through innovation, Latin American mobile operators are shifting from a pure M2M connectivity services model to an M2M VAS model. Also, in order to accelerate time to market and compete more effectively in the M2M space, operators are partnering with M2M platform vendors.
* Movistar/Vivo and Claro/Telcel are the more mature M2M mobile operators. Both companies have expanded their activities in the M2M value chain beyond connectivity services, increasing the profitability of their cellular M2M businesses.
