本報告提供物聯網 (IoT) 的垂直市場相關調查、供應商的市場定義、朝IoT發展的垂直市場的期待、市場促進要素、市場課題、IoT解決方案比較分析，及今後18-24個月預測的趨勢等相關調查。
According to some estimates, there will be more than 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020. Interestingly, only about 33 percent of those are expected to be smartphones, tablets, televisions or computers. The remaining 66 percent are expected to be "things" - sensors or other types of intelligent devices that control, analyze and monitor various and sundry things on the Internet. In many ways, this accounts for the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT).
As the IoT market continues to expand and incorporate nearly any company that wants to claim that its Internet-driven product somehow belongs to IoT, the hope is that the definition will soon solidify, and the finalized concept will reject all but those applications that specifically adhere to IoT standards. Once that happens, vendors can begin truly identifying and defining their offerings within a realistic and valuable framework.
It is extremely important that vendors recognize and take advantage of the vertical opportunity that arises from IoT. The first natural instinct will be for vendors to jump on the opportunity for obvious horizontal-focused opportunities. Those will quickly become saturated, however. The true winners in IoT will be those vendors that are willing to spend the time, money and creative investment into developing vertical opportunities.
No doubt, there are issues to address in order for IoT to succeed. Questions are centered around who owns the data and how it will be used. Security, safety and integration will be among the top challenges. Specifically, safety and security, now tightly linked by growing connectivity, will drive further regulation, where previously the impact of security was neglected. Additionally, lack of unified standards prevents widespread adoption, and scalability of solutions is difficult since various vertical industry applications have little to no overlap. Standardization of IoT, specifically the ability for diverse devices and systems to share information and interact, is needed.
Vendors are extremely optimistic about certain verticals - especially those like manufacturing, energy and logistics/transportation. These verticals likely will adopt IoT first and create strategies that drive new and improved applications.
‘Vendors Find Strongest IoT Growth with Vertical Focus’ examines the vertical markets for IoT, analyzing how vendors are defining the market and how they expect verticals to shape up for IoT. Additionally, it examines the strongest drivers in the market, as well as the greatest challenges the market faces. The report includes a comparative analysis of IoT solutions available and details trends that are likely to occur in the industry over the next 18-24 months.
Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:

IoT will enable enterprises to create new revenue streams, especially as asset-intensive industries - such as those like oil and gas, mining and construction - realize the true benefits of IoT in cost savings, predictive maintenance and higher asset uptime. Most important will be the benefit of improving worker safety in complex working conditions. Also, cities will spend more on IoT to improve safety, efficiency, traffic congestion, pollution and other major city problems as they work with existing and outdated city infrastructure.
