Machine to Machine Technologies: Unlocking the Potential of a $1 Trillion Industry

Executive Summary

Breaking the Barriers of a $1 Trillion Industry: New Insights on Machine to Machine Technologies [M2M]

Carbon War Room proposes strategies for M2M technologies industry to transform key sectors, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 9 billion tons

Machine to machine (M2M) communication – whereby sensors and networks allow all the parts of a physical system to communicate directly with each other – will radically change the way we work, live and travel. M2M will allow us to do more with less, but only if the industry can overcome current market barriers. The potential for M2M technologies to drastically change the way we do business, streamline operations and curb our environmental impacts is evident, but there are significant market barriers that must be addressed to realize the full scalability of these technologies.

The report identifies the challenges that threaten the industry from reaching its full potential, and offers solutions for overcoming them.
