Key Report Statistics

•’s partners, Cradlepoint, Sierra Wireless and Digi have yet again been confirmed as the three market leaders in cellular routing

• In 2017 the global cellular router market accounted for $565.1 Million USD with an expected CAGR of 14.38%, seeing the market grow to $1639.4 Million USD between 2018 and 2025.

• Based on the segmented 3G and 4G LTE market from 2017 to 2025, most routers available are 4G LTE compatible, due to the decline in 3G services.

• The growing demand for fast and reliable access to data, video and digital applications, as well as the proliferation of IoT devices has attributed to the increased density of data traffic over cellular. As such, locations hitting a traffic density of 0.5 petabytes per sq. km per year, which have a cellular radius less than 200 meters, are utilising the deployment of small cell solutions which offer benefits such as improved coverage, increased available data rates and refined device battery life.


The “disrupt or be disrupted” business landscape has been shaped by the surge of innovation in technology, resulting in the slow but inevitable demise of traditional network infrastructures worldwide. As a result, the demand for more secure, reliable and rapid network connectivity solutions has seen many industry markets investing in the development and usage of cellular router and gateway applications. are the lead distributors for Cradlepoint, Sierra Wireless, and Digi International, the leading companies in the 4G LTE connectivity market who have been recognised for their contribution towards the development of cellular routing.
