Ten Internet of Things facts and predictions

You might be surprised to learn how many things are connected to the Internet, and how much economic benefit we can derive from analyzing the resulting data streams. Consider these interesting tidbits:

  • The total economic value-add from IoT across industries will reach $1.9 trillion worldwide in 2020, anticipates Gartner.
  • Fifty billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020, predicts Cisco.
  • The remote patient monitoring market doubled from 2007 to 2011 and is projected to double again by 2016.
  • The utility smart grid transformation is expected to almost double the customer information system market, from $2.5 billion in 2013 to $5.5 billion in 2020, based on a study from Navigant Research.
  • Wide deployment of IoT technologies in the auto industry could save $100 billion annually in accident reductions, according to McKinsey.
  • The industrial Internet could add $10-15 trillion to global GDP, essentially doubling the US economy, says GE.
  • Seventy-five percent of global business leaders are exploring the economic opportunities of IoT, according to a report from The Economist.
  • The UK government recently approved 45 million pounds (US$76.26 million) in research funding for Internet of Things technologies.
  • Cities will spend $41 trillion in the next 20 years on infrastructure upgrades for IoT, according to Intel.
  • The number of developers involved in IoT activities will reach 1.7 million globally by the end of 2014, according to ABI Research estimates.

Here is a nice article by SAS about the subject.

Internet of Things (IoT)

What it is and why it matters

The Internet of Things is a growing network of everyday objects – from industrial machines to consumer goods – that can share information and complete tasks while you are busy with other activities, like work, sleep or exercise.

Soon, our cars, our homes, our major appliances and even our city streets will be connected to the Internet – creating this network of objects that is called the Internet of Things, or IoT for short.

Made up of millions of sensors and devices that generate incessant streams of data, the IoT can be used to improve our lives and our businesses in many ways. But how does it work? And what are these things that are part of the network?

The Internet of Things consists of three main components:

  1. The things (or assets) themselves.
  2. The communication networks connecting them.
  3. The computing systems that process and make use of the data that our things transmit and receive.
