State of the IoT market: Survey Dashboard

State of the IoT market:

Discover our Survey Dashboard

In 2020, GSMA Intelligence launched a survey to 2,800 enterprises, across 18 markets and 8 verticals, to measure their IoT deployments and future adoption plans, their technology and partnership requirements, their challenges to deploying new IoT solutions, and their measures of success.

Following from an in-depth analysis of our survey results, we developed an interactive dashboard, allowing users to easily navigate our granular survey data, broken down by country and vertical.

In this short video demo, Sylwia Kechiche, Principal Analyst for GSMA Intelligence, walks you through some of the interesting findings and data snippets you can uncover from our survey dashboard, from the impact of Covid-19 on IoT deployments plans, to the status of already deployed IoT devices:

Latest IoT Enterprise Survey Results Launched

GSMA Intelligence conducted an IoT Enterprise survey at the end of 2018, collecting insights from over 2,000 enterprises across 14 markets. The survey looked at companies of 20+ employees, in order to capture perspectives from both small and large enterprise.

The first survey results were featured in Mobile World Live’s Show Daily at MWC19 Barcelona. The infographic can be downloaded here. GSMA subscribers also have exclusive access to an in-depth analysis ‘IoT in business? The enterprise voice on the adoption choice’.

An interactive demo of a range of survey results is also publicly available on Tableau and was demoed at the 8th Mobile IoT Summit in Barcelona. Please email us for more information.

Verizon SVP pushes for purchases not partners

LIVE FROM GSMA MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS AMERICAS 2018: Striking partnerships for IoT launches and moves into vertical markets could restrict the long-term benefits from successful ventures, Verizon Connect SVP product strategy Jason Koch (pictured) warned, adding acquisition of companies already in the sector could potentially be a more lucrative strategy.

Koch, whose former company was one of several bought by the operator to form what is now the Verizon Connect telematics division, said although acquisition may be a better route to success in the IoT ecosystem, it was also a more challenging one.

“It’s easy to partner with a third party to bring a solution to market, you just give up a bunch of the value capture when you do it,” he said. “You also give up the future value that you may not understand what it is today – especially with software and technology that changes so quickly, you don’t really know what you have at this moment.”

Speaking at the GSMA Intelligence Americas Summit on the eve of Mobile World Congress Americas, the executive said when assessing acquisition targets, it was important to bring in those with a “full stack” solution in place rather than just the infrastructure.

He also warned operators that building solutions themselves may prove problematic.

“You see it all the time,” he noted. “Companies think they have a core competency so they try and build something. After they try, and sometimes fail, they think maybe that wasn’t their core competency so they partner with somebody.”

Koch concluded: “Every company has to pick their own strategy based on time to market, known quantity, established business case. The easiest decision and lowest risk decision is to go partner, it’s not always the best long term strategy.”

Press Release: Operators must look beyond connectivity to increase share of $1.1 trillion IoT revenue opportunity

This is the official 2018 Mobile World Congress Americas website. We’re excited to start this journey with you, the event will be held in a few short months addressing North, Central and South American markets

London: The global Internet of Things (IoT) market will be worth $1.1 trillion in revenue by 2025 as market value shifts from connectivity to platforms, applications and services, according to new data from GSMA Intelligence. By that point, there will be more than 25 billion IoT connections (cellular and non-cellular), driven largely by growth in the industrial IoT market. The Asia Pacific region is forecast to become the largest global IoT region in terms of both connections and revenue.
