Increased Dependence on Internet of Things may Backfire
The increasing technological developments seen in the healthcare field and the growing initiatives taken by governments globally to expand the Internet of Things market will provide impetus to the development of the overall market. In addition, the growing requirement to raise cost reduction and efficiency will also boost the growth of this market,” says a TMR analyst. This is due to the fact that the Internet of Things aids in getting machine to machine communication which enables enhanced efficiency and accurate results.
On the other hand, the market is negatively impacted by the increasing reliance on Internet of Things. This is owing to the fact there is an increasing dependency of consumers on Internet of Things in their daily lives. An increased reliance on any technology may result in damage as no system is error-free. Nonetheless, it is predicted that in the coming years, devices such as refrigerators, cars, and televisions will be equipped with sensors and an internet connectivity for publishing the data collected. Hence, the soaring demand for smarter devices may bring in new opportunities in the market for Internet of Things, states a TMR analyst.
