Internet of Things Universe Discussed by IDTechEx in Its Topical Report Available at MarketPublishers.com19 Dec 2016 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The many analysts holding to the idea that tens of billions of nodes are expected to be deployed in only several years, ignore the fact that, by contrast with their projections, very little IoT was deployed throughout 2016.
A sizable market is projected to eventually emerge but not chiefly for nodes, where commoditisation seems to be arriving at a rapid pace. Indeed, it is an indispensable pre-requisite for success.
IoT centres around things interacting for the advantage of humans without human interference at that time. It does not enclose the Internet of People (IoP) which is a name change of the world of human-powered connected personal electronic devices: it has entirely different characteristic features and it is cynical to amalgamate it with IoT, exactly as shovelling in RFID, all ZigBee, M2M and so on and so forth is of no avail.
As IoT shifts to higher volumes amounting to billions year over year, the nodes will not commonly be hard-wired: wireless nodes will likely have battery supplied power and even more energy harvesting on-board as it will not be practical to change batteries.
Topical research report “Internet of Things (IoT) 2017-2027” drawn up by IDTechEx Ltd is dedicated to an analysis of the market space.
The study provides insights into definitions, IoT infrastructure, IoT against the background of IoP, examples of potential applications including wearable IoT, IoT value chain and bias versus IoP, challenges, megatrends favouring the IoT, impediments to the growth of the IoT market, system and software issues, hardware, investment in IoT development to 2020, industry standards. The study sheds light on the core MCU technologies, takes a look at the adjacent technologies such as sensors and communications. Detailed look at the 19 major hardware players is provided. The report examines the current and future market trends and offers detailed market forecasts through to 2027 by volume and value, segments, and more.
