The amalgamation is also projected to reduce costs and improve efficiency of solutions. This factor is likely to fuel demand among companies and enable growth in the market in the forthcoming year.
Rising Investments in Information Technology To Boost The Market
The industrial internet of things (IIoT) signifies to the extension of the internet of things (IoT) in manufacturing and industrial sectors. The industrial internet of things is an innovative combination of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT). The integration offers industrial capabilities such as big data, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, automation, machine learning, optimization services and enhanced visibility of the logistics operations and supply chain. The industrial internet of thingsis facilitated with progressive AI sensors that are utilized for uncovering changes in the logical and physical relationship of one object to another or with the environment. Physical changes may involve light, temperature, sound, pressure, motion, presence or absence of location and an electronically traceable entity.
In a report mentioned by European Institute of Innovation & Technology, the Single
Market Strategy was applied by European government which comprises of elements such as, remote patient monitoring, transit management system, farm management system and others. These factors, in turn, are driving and accelerating growth for the global IIoT (industrial internet of things) technology market.
In addition, Increasing IT investment along with by growing cloud adoption is predicted to drive the IIoT technology market. The innovation for industrial IoT is predicted to boost the global IIoT (industrial internet of things) technology market during the forecast period. For instance, in 2018, GE launched the formation of a new industrial IoT (or IIoT) software firm referred to as GED2GE or Digital 2.0 based on the core architecture of cloud computing.
