In the current digital era, the Internet of Things is becoming pivotal in every domain to ensure its time-to-time enhancements in market value

FREMONT, CA: Internet of Things (IoT) solutions in the European market have been escalating over recent years. With Germany, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands becoming frontiers in IoT adoption, Eastern European countries and the Nordics are progressing to excel in IoT. While manufacturing, home, health, and finance sectors leverage IoT, retail and agriculture have joined the crew in IoT utilisation. An increasing openness towards outsourcing and a lack of skilled specialists raise the demand for outsourcing.

From medical devices to biochip transponders, solar panels, and care, the Internet of Things refers to all the physical devices connected to the internet that are used daily. These devices send and receive data, which is the harvest of applied IoT. This data enables process optimisation, environmental monitoring, and computations and mathematical calculations. IoT devices can broadly be put into two different categories based on their optimisation. While IoT upgrades the daily lives of consumers via electronic goods like wearable health and fitness monitors, home appliances, etc. Industrial IoT focuses on advancing non-consumer devices like manufacturing equipment, robots, and 3D printers for the benefit of organisations.

These IoT devices, in connection with regular physical devices, when operated interactively and autonomously without human intervention, open up an intelligent environment. It helps in learning and operating autonomously to offer expert advice on how artificial intelligence, big data, and IoT are integrated. IoT strengthens the connection with machine learning, big data, 5G, and artificial intelligence. IoT is generally associated with key revenue roles such as platforms, applications, and services, professional services, connectivity, product development, big data solutions, and software services.

Europe is emerging as one of the leading adopters of IoT with a decent succession rate. Besides, European consumer and industrial IoT opportunities are highly favourable, while several other domains benefit from these opportunities. Further, skills shortages, when combined with the accelerating IoT market, skills shortages facilitate outsourcing. The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is cost-effective, offering widened opportunities. They resolve the biggest woes of industries, such as lacking in-house skills and a lack of solutions. Thus, IIoT offers security, analytical, technical support, connectivity technology, project management, strategic, procurement, and database management skills.

Several industries are undergoing promising advancements in their market growth owing to the interference of IoT. The manufacturing domain is set to experience enhancements with an anticipated growth rate of 26 per cent by 2030. The healthcare industry manages to hold onto its unique growth features via IoT, accounting for growing nearly 14 per cent by 2030. The drastic effect of the pandemic has accelerated the healthcare industry’s dependence on the IoT for advanced treatments. The retail sector is one significant domain where IoT plays a pilot role with the increased expansion of e-commerce facilities. Meanwhile, the agriculture sector is at the forefront of IoT leverage, with an estimated 20.4 billion euros by 2028.
