The biggest application segment for Internet Of Things (IoT)

Steadily, one can observe that, consumer electronics is the biggest application segment for IoT and constitutes almost 30% market share, according Research and Markets. Software and services are poised to be the largest market. Data management has the largest share of the IoT software solution market and it is expected to maintain the same momentum. It is predicted that security solution will show very good growth due to increasing cyber threats and attacks. Device management platform will dominate the IoT platforms market due to huge increase in number of connected devices all over the world. Research and Markets reveals that, factors that will restrain market growth are shortage of skilled and trained workers, lack of universally accepted standards and security concerns.

Market drivers for Internet of things fuel exciting dynamics

Very exciting to see that, market drivers for Internet of things are increasing adoption of cloud-based platforms, exponential increase in Internet usage, development of cheaper and smarter sensors, growth of high speed networking technologies, rapidly growing online population demanding interconnectivity of objects, growth in venture capital investment in IoT industry and potential to streamline and deliver greater time and cost savings.

Motion sensors are another sensor type which promises huge opportunities

It appears clearly that, Motion sensors are another sensor type which promises huge opportunities for diverse applications in our digital connected data-driven era. The major applications of motion sensors are in consumer electronics, gaming and entertainment, automotive, healthcare, and industrial segments. According to Research and Markets, the consumer electronics application holds a promising future for motion sensors with a faster growth rate than that of the overall parent market. In fact, the demand for smartphones and tablets not only helped the market grow in recent times but would also help boost the market in the next few years. Increasing adoption of technological advances such as MEMS is also playing a crucial role in boosting demand for motion sensors.

The growth of the top 10 sensors market explained

I have a pleasure to recall that, the growth of Top 10 Sensors Market by Type (Pressure, Temperature, Image, Motion, Fingerprint, Level, Gas, Magnetic Field, Position, and Light), Technology, Application, End-User Industry is propelled by the increasing advancement toward smaller, smarter, and cheaper sensors; miniaturization trend in sensors; advent of platforms such as IoT, AR, and M2M; and growing trend toward smart living among end users.

Chipsets designed for IoT systems

Due to many factors, chipsets designed for IoT systems have unique factors including the need for optimal energy efficiency. According to Research and Markets, the network effect is clearly evident as the impact of increasingly interconnected IoT systems will cause an acceleration in overall demand for chipsets due to the interdependency of platforms, gateways, and devices.

Chipsets in our mobile-driven world

Our digital era requires modern computing systems that consist of electronic components known as chipsets, which represent a collection of integrated circuits embarked in various consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, tablet computers, and wearable technology. Chipsets are usually designed to work with a specific family of microprocessors and often intended for a specific purpose and/or device.

Nearly 6 Billion SIM Card Shipments in 2017 despite sharp decline in NFC SIMs Worldwide

ABI Research forecasts SIM Card shipments will reach nearly six billion in 2017 and maintain relatively stable growth until 2021 despite a sharp decline in NFC SIMs worldwide. One can also observe that, the NFC SIM (known to the industry as Single Wire Protocol SIM) is stumbling behind the eSE (Embedded Secure Element) and HCE (Host Card Emulation), which continue to gain momentum due to ongoing interest from banks, financial institutions, and transportation authorities. Leading SIM card and IC vendors include G&D, Gemalto, Morpho, and Oberthur Technologies. EM Microelectronic, Infineon, and Samsung continue to lead the market.
