On-line Presentation


This IDC Survey presents findings from a three-year trend analysis of end-user adoption of IoT technology in the U.S. market. This document provides insights into commercial buyer adoption through multiple lens of deployment status, project length, budget direction, technology spending patterns, and preference for vendor type. The document includes data from IDC's 2019, 2020, and 2021 Industry IT and Communications Surveys.

"Among the many findings noted in this survey, three themes are worth highlighting," says Yini Rong, senior research analyst in IDC's Data and Analytics group. "First, while operations-centric industries, such as manufacturing, transportation, and retail, have led in IoT investments in the past, other industries, such as healthcare and personal and consumer services, will support a strong pipeline of future investments. Second, IoT project deployment timelines are growing longer, which indicates expanding scope in enterprisewide deployment for IoT and an increase in project complexity. Last, as projects become more complex, industry buyers leverage their IoT investments to enhance complementary ROI-driven technologies, including artificial intelligence software, machine learning analytics, and augmented and virtual reality headset and content. Industry buyers look to make use of connected, instrumented machines and devices to improve operational business processes."
