These sessions will be followed by ten minutes of Q&A, which will be a great opportunity for industry professionals to learn from the experience of these experts, in order to leverage the insights for their enterprises.


The experts predict:

According to IDC’s Worldwide Semi-annual Internet of Things Spending Guide, “the global spending on the Internet of Things (IoT) is forecast to reach $772.5 billion in 2018, an increase of 14.6% over the $674 billion that will be spent in 2017.

In a new update, it is also expected to sustain a CAGR of 14.4% through the 2017-2021 forecast period. This will see it surpassing the $1 trillion mark in 2020. At this rate, it should grow to $1.1 trillion in 2021.

IoT hardware will be the largest technology category in 2018. The expenditure will be about USD 239 billion, with a focus on modules and sensors and some parts of infrastructure and security.

In 2017, Verizon found the manufacturing industry saw an 84 percent boost in IoT network connections, greater than any other industry surveyed, including Transit, Energy & Utilities, Smart Cities, and Healthcare. The number is slated to grow much faster since the same report says that 73 percent of executives are either researching or currently deploying IoT solutions for their businesses.
