This IDC study highlights the key industry market trends contributing to the growth of the rapidly evolving IoT market. It is designed to help clients identify and utilize opportunities, assign resources, and segment the market. It provides the Polish IoT market size for 2015 and the outlook for 2016–2020. Its forecast is set within the context of the IoT ecosystem, which includes intelligent systems, connectivity services, platforms, analytics, and industry applications. On the margins, but still important to the whole ecosystem, are security and professional services.
"IoT market growth is driven by use cases that have evolved over many years, such as fleet and goods monitoring and manufacturing management. Another growth area is public investments, which have been significantly financed by EU funds. Local energy companies and government entities may lack the resources for some investments, such as smart metering or other IT, but EU funds have allowed them to move forward. The future of consumer IoT investments is unclear, as many consumers lack the necessary information to make informed decisions. It should be emphasized that data security remains the biggest concern for end users. The future of the market will depend on the ability of IoT vendors to demonstrate that the technologies are completely secure." — Senior Research Manager Jarek Smulski, IDC Poland
