11+ Powerful IoT or Internet of Things Stats & Facts for 2023
Nowadays we are hearing more about IoT or the "Internet of Things", a tech buzz word. It has been a major technological revolution worldwide across various industries.
Today we have access to internet wherever and we can use it whenever. We can connect everyday objects—kitchen appliances, cars, thermostats, baby monitors—to the internet via embedded devices. IoT helps to establish advanced connectivity among these devices using internet.
What is IoT?
The Internet of Things refers to the billions of physical objects or things around the world that are now connected to the internet, all collecting and sharing data. The communication may be between devices and the cloud, and/or between the devices themselves.
How does IoT work?
- Smart Devices have hardware, like sensors, that collect data from its environment or user inputs.
- IoT application collects data received from various IoT devices by the sensors then shared via the cloud and integrated with software. AI and ML is used to analyze the data
- A graphical user interface like app or website handles the data sent to users after software analyses the data. This app or website controls smart devices.
IoT-enabled devices have extensive functionality because they are able to connect to a broader network. In this blog, let's discuss some major IoT statistics to demonstrate how large the Internet of Things has grown over the years.
|1. There are well over 13 billion connected IoT devices around the globe.|
|2. By 2025, there will be 152,200 IoT devices connecting to the internet per minute.|
|3. IoT solutions have the potential to generate $4-11 trillion in economic value by 2025.|
