Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Market: Snapshot

Deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) in industries to modernize manufacturing processes is referred to as Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). IIoT incorporates machine learning, Big Data technology, and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, adopting the sensor data and automation technologies that already exist in the industries. IIoT helps to improve visibility, operational efficiency, increases productivity, and reduces complexity in the process. Large collected data helps in predictive maintenance which can generate savings over scheduled repairs leading to reduction in maintenance costs and reduce downtime from equipment breakdowns. In the current scenario, many companies are assessing their current data systems and observing ways to transform their business processes through Big Data analytics. Rising adoption of IIoT by the transportation sector is driving the market. However, a major concern that surrounds IIoT is the security and privacy of the data; this concern leads to loss of physical systems and data security. The global Industrial Internet of things market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 24.3% during the forecast period (2018-2026) and is expected to reach US$ 991,562.0 Mn by 2026.
