IoT Deployment Revenue will Reach $1 Trillion in 2022

Worldwide spending on the Internet of Things (IoT) is forecast to pass the $1 trillion mark in 2022, reaching $1.1 trillion in 2023. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for IoT spending over the 2019-2023 forecast period will be 12.6 percent, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC).

"Spending on IoT deployments continues with good momentum and is expected to be $726 billion worldwide this year," said Carrie MacGillivray, group vice president at IDC.

Internet of Things Market Development

While organizations are investing in hardware, software, and services to support their IoT initiatives, their next challenge is finding solutions that help them to manage, process, and analyze the huge amounts of data being generated from all these connected things.

The three commercial industries that will spend the most on IoT solutions throughout the forecast period are discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing, and transportation.

Together, these three industries will account for nearly a third of worldwide spend total in 2023. The primary IoT use case for the two manufacturing industries will be manufacturing operations while transportation industry spending will largely go toward freight monitoring.

The consumer market will be the second-largest source of IoT spending in 2019, led by smart home and connected vehicle use cases. With the fastest five-year growth rate across all industries (16.8 percent CAGR), the consumer market is forecast to overtake discrete manufacturing to become the largest source of IoT spending by 2023.

IoT services will be the largest technology category through the end of the forecast after overtaking hardware spending this year. Together, these two categories account for roughly two-thirds of all IoT applications spending.

Services spending goes toward traditional IT and installation services as well as ongoing services such as content as a service. Hardware spending is dominated by module or sensor purchases. Software will be the fastest growing technology category with a five-year CAGR of 15.3 percent with a focus on application and analytics software purchases.

According to the IDC assessment, two additional trends within the IoT software category include the dominance of vertical industry IoT platforms and the rise of cloud computing deployments for IoT software.

More than three-quarters of all spending on IoT platform software -- middleware that provides the device management, connectivity management, data management, visualization, and applications enablement for connecting IoT endpoints -- will go toward software packages that integrate and support devices, applications, data schemas, and standards of a single industry.

Outlook for IoT Applications Growth

And, organizations are increasingly deploying their IoT software, including applications, analytics software, and IoT platforms, to the public cloud. By the end of the forecast, nearly one-third of IoT software spending will go toward public cloud deployments, compared to less than 20 percent spent on cloud deployments in 2018.

The United States and China will account for roughly half of all IoT applications spending throughout the forecast, followed by Western Europe and Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan and China). The regions that will see the fastest IoT application spending growth are Latin America and the Middle East and Africa with CAGRs of 23.1 percent and 19.5 percent respectively.

Why Healthcare and Smart City Apps Drive 5G IoT

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology for cellular networks is a successor to fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology. By 2023, Juniper Research anticipates that there will be over 1 billion 5G connections globally. The technology will provide the data infrastructure for the advancement of wireless communications and for new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) -- including smart cities and healthcare. 5G IoT Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, 5G IoT connections will reach 116 million globally by 2026 -- that's increasing from just 17 million connections in 2023. Juniper analysts predict that the healthcare sector applications and government or other smart city services will drive this outstanding 1,100 percent growth over the next three years. Juniper examined 5G adoption across key industry sectors -- such as the automotive, mobile broadband, and smart homes -- and forecasts healthcare and smart cities will accoun

How Savvy Leaders Re-Imagine Work in 2023

As we look to the year ahead, there will be significant challenges and opportunities facing the Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role. In order to be successful, savvy HR leaders must be prepared to take proactive steps that adapt and evolve.

HR Innovation Market Development One of Gartner's key predictions for 2023 is that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation will continue to increase within the enlightened digital workplace. This transition will require HR leaders to develop new skills and competencies in order to effectively manage and lead teams that are increasingly relying on these enabling technologies. Additionally, HR leaders will need to ensure that their organizations are investing in the necessary infrastructure and re

Top 10 CFO Priorities Require Rethinking Finance

The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) role is essential to digital business growth. While CFOs do not get closely involved in the tactical details of the digital transformation of their functions, they still recognize its strategic importance. According to the latest survey by Gartner, CFOs are faced with the challenge of balancing the need for substantive digital business innovation with financial cost control and risk management. "CFOs will be stretched thinly across many activities in 2023. The survey revealed a wide range of actions CFOs plan to either lead or be significantly involved with," said Marko Horvat, vice president at Gartner.
