We maintain an IoT Startup Spotlight
section for profiles of innovative ventures in cloud, wearables,
connected car, connected health, smart cities, industrial/enetrprise
IoT, connectivity and semiconductors, since it is the new companies that are pioneering the innovations that are fueling the growth of the IoT. Our blog and I-On-the-Trends™ articles offer insights into what's happening now and what we see as happening in the future. In our Vertical Markets section, we drill down into specific markets. Our Resources area includes everything from MarketWired news releases to events sites where you can find IoT conferences.
There are many definitions for the IoT, a simple one is that everyday objects are connected wired or wirelessly so that they can receive and send data with as little human intervention as possible. Sounds simple, but it is creating a tsunami of products, services and technologies from Big Data/analytics to new kinds of materials.
IDC predicts that technology and services IoT revenue will grow from $4.8 trillion in 2012 to $7.3 trillion by 2017. Cisco promotes its "Internet of Everything" branding for the IoT which it predicts will reach $17T by 2020. ZDNet reports that analysts forecast there will be almost five billion things connected by
the end of next year and 25 billion - or three for every person on the
planet - by the end of 2020.
While some decry the IoT as hype - it is here now and poised for the kind of growth we and other analysts predict. G.E. for example, according to The New York Times, reported that "revenue from its IoT software business will be $1.1 billion this year [in 2014],
probably the fastest a G.E. business has hit the $1 billion mark."
