LPWANs: can proprietary and cellular technologies co-exist in this crowded battlefield?

Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies dubbed low power wide area (LPWA) networks are deemed a critical element in the platforms that will in future support the burgeoning range of connected objects with long battery lives and low data rate requirements. How many of these various standards will exist in future? Will proprietary options eventually be pushed out by the cellular standards, or can a number of different standards continue to co-exist?
