Industrial IoT Market to Grow Massively and is Set to Capture a CAGR of 16.2 % :

Pune, India, June, 2018 /press release/- Market Research Future Published a Half Cooked Research Report on Global Industrial IoT Research Report.

The industrial internet of things (IIoT) is already here and has redefined the face of the industry, and this wave of technological change has unprecedented opportunities to offer. The industrial internet of things is in its early stages, and the number of devices connected to IoT continues to proliferate. The IIoT is a subset of IoT and can be defined as a concept that connects numerous industrial devices with high-end software programs to improve industrial performance. The most critical drivers of the IIoT are enhanced operational efficiency and productivity. Other drivers include new business opportunities, reduction in downtime, maximization of asset utilization, enhanced product innovation process, enhanced worker safety and a better understanding of customer needs among others. Rapid digitization of industrial processes, need for accuracy in industries like defense, healthcare, aerospace, and energy among others and the demand for adoption of cloud computing is also augmenting the market.

According to a study conducted by Market Research Future (MRFR), the global industrial IoT market is set to capture a CAGR of 16.2% and will reach USD 1.0 trillion by 2022 from USD 406.9 billion in 2016.

The global industrial internet of things market presents many new opportunities. However, various factors could hamper the growth of the market. Lack of interoperability or standards and security concerns are the most significant hurdles. Adopting the industrial IoT requires massive capital investment and business process change which are potential disruption to the existing business. Other vital barriers which are impeding the global industrial internet of things market are lack of proven business models, lack of understanding of the concept among management and C-level executives, uncertain ROI, untested technologies, lack of data governance rules across geographical boundaries, lack of application development tools, privacy concerns, lack of data scientists, high cost of sensors. Despite many barriers, it cannot be said that the future of IoT is bleak, adoption of IoT is accelerating, although, its application may be best suited to areas where the barriers are less consequential.


The global industrial internet of things market has been segmented based on applications, deployment, software, and end-users. By applications, the market has been segmented into smart cities, smart energy, retail, logistics and industrial control among others. By deployment, the market has been segmented into on-cloud, on-premise and hybrid among others.
