VDC Research


The edge of embedded device networks is rapidly evolving with the Internet of Things (IoT) to enable a sweeping variety of new applications and services across industries. Gateways have emerged as a powerful and cost-effective conduit between device or sensor networks and new cloud-based or native application software, analytics, and services. This research program examines the growing markets for commercial IoT and intelligent gateway devices as well as embedded hardware sold to manufacturers and integrators for developing product gateway systems. (Please note that this report does not include gateways sold to the Home Automation Network (HAN) space and we have updated our terminology from M2M gateways in 2014 to IoT gateways.)

What questions are addressed?

  • How are gateway devices enabling new IoT applications and services across industries?
  • Which connectivity technologies are best suited for supporting gateway applications in various verticals?
  • Who is leading the markets for IoT and intelligent gateway devices and hardware?
  • What role do leading semiconductor technology providers like ARM and Intel have in the gateway market?
  • How is the IoT evolving across geographies and what are the implications to gateway development?
  • Who are incumbent gateway suppliers targeting for new partnerships and collaborations to advance their IoT solutions?

Executive Summary

The gateway market is rapidly evolving with current suppliers aggressively pursuing new acquisitions, partnerships, and collaborations to extend support further throughout the IoT value chain. Gateways are steadily becoming a standard solution to bridging device and sensor networks with enterprise applications, and IoT solutions and service providers have taken notice. As more and more wireless technologies and lower-level protocols emerge to support IoT applications across industries, gateways will be increasingly relied upon to mitigate the difficulties of supporting multiple standards. Further, gateways enable brownfield and greenfield networks alike for supporting new connected applications and services through enterprise access to historically disconnected endpoint data or embedded analytics and control.

The gateway space is bifurcating into two distinct device classes: IoT gateways and intelligent gateways. IoT gateways are typically optimized for specific industry applications and deployments with limited functionality or use otherwise. On the other hand, intelligent gateways feature a flexible software platform enabling support for creating or tying in a variety of custom/third-party applications and platforms. Both types of gateway devices will continue to be a critical element of end-to-end IoT solutions through the next five years and beyond.

Key Findings

  • The global market for IoT and intelligent gateway devices totaled more than $XX in 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to more than $XX in 2019.
  • Gateway development is leading to a variety of new partnerships and collaborations between device manufacturers and semiconductor suppliers, embedded software vendors, network operators, application solution/service providers, and more.
  • Intelligent gateways featuring a flexible software platform comprise a greater share of the commercial device market and are expected to see the strongest market growth over the next five years.
  • The Americas is the leading region for demand of IoT gateway systems and solutions with approximately XX% of global revenues in 2014.
  • Most gateway hardware today feature embedded processors using ARM architectures.
  • High availability, bandwidth support, and reliability as measured in uptime or MTBF are the most important product requirements in selecting embedded hardware for developing IoT Gateways.
