The hand sanitizing monitoring devices are integrated with the IoT technology which constantly reminds people to sanitize their hands. But the major shortcoming is that reminders produced in the form of beep sounds are frequently ignored by people and don’t serve their purpose. 


Market Challenges:


The healthcare industry is considered the major end-user of the IoT chips industry. The wide range of medical devices that require frequent or continuous monitoring is driving the overall growth of the IoT Chips market. However, the false prediction of the medical devices, especially in the mood-aware IoT device which continuously monitors the heart rates, blood pressure, and other metrics to figure out the mental state of the patient. The common metrics monitored often fail to predict the symptoms.


 The IoT chips are intensively used in the smart wearable in recent times. However, the challenges associated with the IoT integrated smart devices such as the low battery life of the devices, ergonomic issues, poor value that they offer, and so on are hindering the overall growth of the IoT chips industry.


Cumulative Growth Analysis:


IoT chips are intensively used in consumer electronics, smartphones, and other devices to make automated decisions by capturing real-time data. The consumer electronics segment is expected to showcase higher IoT Chips market value in the forecast period. The market value of IoT chips is expected to reach over USD 531.80 million by the year 2026 with a steady CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. The growing need for smart healthcare devices is also stimulating the overall growth of IoT chips in recent times. The IoT technologies are integrated into the devices such as remote patient monitoring, Glucose monitoring which is capable of monitoring the patient’s glucose level automatically has replaced the conventional way of monitoring the glucose levels. The IoT chips are utilized in several end-user applications such as building automation, the automotive industry, and healthcare, and so on. The growth of the end-user industries is further driving the overall growth of the IoT chips market. 


Value Chain Analysis:


The evolution of IoT technology has highly benefitted the industrial process in recent times. The development of internet connectivity, 5G technology, advancing sensor technology, and other favorable factors are primarily responsible for IoT chips market growth. Additionally, the industrial sectors are adopting automated decision making in real-time rather than data-driven decision making in recent times and automating several industrial processes such as RFID label tracking, sorting the flow of products, tracking the flow, and other essential industrial operations while reducing the manual intervention. Such practices in the industrial sectors are driving the overall growth of the IoT chips industry. 


The advent of LTE or NB-IoT chips in the manufacturing industries is gaining popularity in recent times in the industrial sectors owing to the massive amount of machine and sensor data getting collected every day. The manufacturing terminals are integrated with e-LTE or NB-IoT chips to collect the manufacturing data and to issue further assistance.
