Development of wireless networking technologies and advent of advanced data analytics and data processing to drive the global Internet of Things (IoT) market to USD 561.04 billion by 2022

IoT can be defined as an interconnection between devices via the internet using sensors, actuators, and network communication technologies. IoT is an integral part of the future internet and could be defined as a vibrant global network infrastructure, with self-configuring capabilities based on interoperable and standard communication protocols. IoT is a computing concept that describes a future where every day physical objects are connected to the internet and are able to identify themselves to other devices. In simple terms, IoT is like a layer of digital information that covers the physical world. IoT can bring together people, data, processes, and enablers to achieve better business outcomes efficiently.

The development of wireless networking technologies, increase in cloud platform adoption, and advent of data analytics and data processing are expected to fuel the growth of IoT market.

All industry verticals are undergoing a huge transformation in a bid to provide affordable, accessible, and quality services to their customers. New applications and use cases, a result of cutting-edge technology innovations, are being developed to address changing industry needs. IoT, in combination with cloud computing and big data, is creating lucrative opportunities for organizations. The increasing number of connected devices and the proliferation of smartphones have contributed significantly to the rise of IoT. Rising adoption of cloud platforms, development of cheaper and smarter sensors, and evolution of high-speed networking technologies will drive the growth of the IoT market. However, concerns regarding data security and privacy are restricting the adoption of IoT across industry verticals. These concerns are triggered by the alarming increase in cyber threats, such as hackers gaining access to business and customer records. IoT solution providers are prioritizing digital security for devices and software within the IoT infrastructure to limit these threats. Lack of common governance standards or interoperability is another factor that limits the adoption of IoT. Various alliances and organizations are joining forces to eradicate or minimize interoperability issues and streamline further product development.

IoT traction among Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), shared security model and growing opportunity for system integrators are major opportunities in the market

The IoT market is quite fragmented and involves various intermediaries, starting from traditional chip makers to system integrators. Consolidated IoT solutions would solve a majority of these issues, where opportunities exist for manufacturers and system integrators to design flexible platforms by minimizing complexities that arise around various sensors, processors, and software to deliver simpler user experience to the end-users. System integrators bind all component subsystems into a whole and deliver to the retailers. Moreover, 30% of the value in this market is driven by services that have huge opportunities for all types of systems integrators, such as major IT vendors, infrastructure vendors, IT consultants and integrators, and various independent local integrators. As the adoption rate of IoT increases, their role in the IoT value chain increases, thereby opening lucrative opportunities for them.

A shared security model addresses inherent vulnerabilities and ensures proper security and compliance for each constituent in the IoT ecosystem, along with introducing transparency and visibility at different business/operation levels. Today, there is no comprehensive security model for IoT. Generally, enterprises are responsible for the security starting from the initial phase; the customer is responsible for protecting the various devices from unauthorized access and also managing their user accounts. A shared security model incorporates a cohesive blend of responsibilities undertaken by Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), PaaS, and application providers, along with the end-users.

Globally, SMEs are the backbone of any country’s economy, contributing significantly to the GDP. Like the large and heavy industries, SMEs can derive similar benefits by adopting innovative technologies, particularly IoT. They have much to gain from the IoT, both as the creators of IoT technology and solutions and as adopters and consumers of the IoT. Today, a number of SMEs are inclined to achieve higher efficiency with lower costs globally. Small innovative IoT companies are driving innovation in the domain of IoT; companies such as IoTUK provide a focal point for SMEs that are hoping to bring IoT solutions to market, providing them with support, advice, and more importantly help in getting access to their target commercial clients. Another perfect example for SME adoption is Airporter (a medium sized Northern Irish transportation company), which took advantage of an IoT fleet management system to advance its operational efficiency.

The Internet of Things market is expected to grow from USD 170.57 Billion in 2017 to USD 561.04 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.9%, owing to the advent of advanced analytics and data processing techniques, which have been useful to derive results from high volumes of data collected from the machine-to-machine communication devices. The integration of data analytics is done in 3 different stages; analysis of high volumes of data, identification and integration of the relevant data, and reporting of the data. The analysis of IoT data is performed using dashboards, streaming data analysis, and edge analytics. Data analytics and processing is useful in the IoT environment to increase the uptime of the smart sensors and devices, accelerate the business outputs, and detect and control the errors.

The IoT market is segmented on the basis of software solutions, services, platforms, application areas, and regions. The software solution holds the largest market size among all the other segments, owing to the increase in development of cloud-based applications and adoption of cloud for storage of data. The service segment is categorized into professional services and managed services. The application area segment is segmented into building and home automation, smart energy and utilities, smart manufacturing, connected logistics, connected health, smart retail, smart mobility and transport, and others (education and agriculture).

IoT is an ecosystem of connected physical objects that are accessible through the internet. IoT ecosystem represents a wide range of technologies, ranging from sensor-powered microcontrollers to devices powered by processors, which are interconnected in such a way that it makes it possible to collect and analyze data in real time.  Though IoT is not considered as a new term, the business application of IoT is in its nascent stage. The Internet of Things market consists of things or objects that are connected to the internet, i.e. anything can be accessed from anywhere. It comprises the integration of sensors and devices that are connected to the internet over fixed or wireless networks. The fact that the internet is available everywhere makes mass adoption of this technology more feasible. The concept of IoT has revolutionized the way organizations across industry verticals interact with customers and help them achieve operational efficiency and optimize their business processes. Various business verticals are adopting IoT-based solutions to provide affordable, accessible, and quality services to their customers.

Internet of Things Market

North America is expected to hold the largest market share in the Internet of Things market in 2017. The rapid digitalization across industry verticals and technological advancements have fueled the growth of the market. With these developments, the Internet of Things market in North America has gained a significant share. Manufacturing and automation companies in the region are incorporating IoT solutions to boost their efficiency.  Most of the enterprises across the US have been populating the North American region to dominate the market. Asia Pacific (APAC) consists of emerging economies. The high adoption rate of new technologies has made this region a lucrative market for the IT industries. Moreover, the countries in this region are taking aggressive initiatives to upsurge the IT infrastructure, enabling the commercial users to adopt cutting-edge technologies.
