Industry Overview

The global internet of things (IoT) market is estimated to be valued at USD 4.6 billion in 2020 and is predicted to reach USD 5.8 billion by 2027, growing at CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period (2021–2027). The major factors responsible for the market growth are rising demand of wearables in healthcare, growing adoption of smart payment technologies, remote monitoring and surge in data from varied industries.

Internet of Things IoT Market Highlights

IoT comprises of inter-related computing devices, digital machines, objects and individuals having unique identifiers (UIDs) and their ability to transfer data over any network without human to human or human to machine interaction. The internet of thing could be heart monitor implant in individual with heart functioning problem, sensors in automobiles to prevent accidents, and biochip transponder in animal track their activity. Organizations in several industries are utilizing IoT to operate efficiently, doing customer profiling, improving decision making, and adding value to the business entities.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Component

Based upon component, the internet of things (IoT) market is categorized into engineered software solutions, platforms, and services.

Several industries including transportation, manufacturing, travel and hospitality etc., operations are put on hold. Employers has provided employees with work from home option. The software which aids in virtual communication are huge hit during this pandemic.

Industry Dynamics                   

Growth Drivers

The increased adoption of IoT solutions expected to result in efficient data collection and its transmission. Therefore, artificial intelligence, data analysis, and machine learning will play an important decisive role. Data analysis and management is the crucial part of effectively managing network, especially when it is a large deployment. For this reason, companies are able to support its clients with such activities. Making the most of data, and knowing how basic level infrastructure functions, requires computer assistance through artificial intelligence (AI). The major cloud vendors, including Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, are increasingly looking to compete based on their AI capabilities. Various start-ups hope to increase their market share through AI algorithms able to leverage machine learning and deep learning, allowing businesses to extract more value out of their ever-growing volumes of data.

Internet of medical things is going to be a big thing in the healthcare industry. Research in healthcare is one of the prominent sector under which huge investment is made, not only in manufacturing new drugs or biomedical implants. IoT could be used in chronic disease monitoring, early warning systems, smart hospital rooms, smart medical and diagnostic tools and wearable devices. According to the survey conducted by Frost and Sullivan, the Internet of Things is projected to reach more than USD 72.0 billion by 2022.


Security remains the major cause of concern in the current computing world. This is evident from the fact that, in first half of 2019 alone, more than 100 million attacks were occurred. Armis, the cybersecurity start-up is one of the billion-dollar company, was acquired by the Insight Partners for USD 1.1 billion. Industry speakers also believe that blockchain could play an important role in achieving highest level of security.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, North America is the largest revenue contributor in the internet of things market due to growth of pandemic massively in the region.
