internet of things is set to herald the Renaissance of industrial revolution2.0

Internet of things is set to take off spectacular in a big in in 2017 as Industries as diverse as manufacturing, automotive,industrial, home electronics,Oil and Gas,Insurance including hardware and software have already started thinking to integrating iOT in their business operations. 

Around 35% of manufacturers already use smart sensors, 10% plan to implement them within a year, and 8% plan to implement them within 3 years, according to PwC report

Further PWC report  predicts and forecasts that around 5.4 million IoT devices will be used on oil extraction sites by 2020. The devices will primarily be internet connected sensors used to provide environmental metrics about extraction sites. Auto Industry has been among the most "innovative users of " connected things across the car industry.Connected cars are a top IoT device. The report projects that over 220 million connected cars would be driving around the world by 2020. 

Military and defense would be another biggest users of iOT as spending on drones will reach $8.7 billion in 2020. In addition, 126,000 military robots will be shipped in 2020, according to Frost & Sullivan. 

During the world war 2 during that pitched battle between Allied merchant ships and German U-boats, information was the key to victory. Codebreaking and aircraft from escort carriers were the sensors, feeding information into centralized command centers, where decision makers on both sides routed submarine “wolf packs” or re-routed convoys of merchantmen. Victory went to those groups that could generate and analyze more information in a timely manner and, then, adjust not just their tactical posture but their logistical supply lines, intelligence groups, and support  facilities.Internet of things will play a big role in ensuring that timely information and data are present to the military which would be able to determine  adequate and appropriate responses

internet of things in western europe : top 5 trends and predictions

internet of things usage and predictions in western europe"

"Western Europe is expected to become the second largest market globally for the Internet of Things (IoT)"

Western Europe is expected to become the second largest market globally for the Internet of Things (IoT)

Around 25% of all IoT connections globally come from WesternEurope and this proportion is expected to grow in the region, with a CAGR of around 25 percent between 2016 and 2022. According to a recent report from Ericsson mobility Cellular will make up a smaller proportion of overall IoT connections, but will enjoy stronger growth between 2016 and 2022, with a CAGR of around 30 percent. The growth in both cellular and non-cellular IoT will be driven in three ways: government and European regulations, industry development .

Close to 200 million smart meters will be rolled out for electricity and 45 million for gas in the European Union by 2020.7 In the automotive industry, the regulatory push can be seen in the requirement for all new cars to be equipped with eCall from April 2018, which automatically dials Europe’s single emergency number in the event of a serious accident.

Finally, from a consumer perspective, IoT is beginning to move beyond entertainment and communications devices in western europe. Phones, laptops, TVs and games consoles are being connected to wearable devices. For example, 8 percent of Western Europeans own a smart watch, and a further 8% intend to buy one in the next 12 months.However interest is also high in connecting other house hold devices and appliances, to IOT as seen in the graph above This interest directly links with the developments in the utility industry around smart meters and the control of energy consumption by customers.
