The report provides strategic market context regarding the future of IoT evolution in CEMA, addressing key drivers and technology trends and their impact on investments in IoT solutions across various industry sectors. It is designed to be useful to organizations' IT and business decision makers, technology vendors, and other market participants that want to focus their activities on the most important IoT market developments.

"While the Internet of Things market in CEMA is still in its early stages, growth momentum has already picked up. In 2015, the IoT market will record double-digit growth and provide high revenue opportunity for all vendors in this ecosystem due to the unparalleled opportunity to connect 'things' in a consumer and enterprise context. However, the development of this market will not be consistent across all industry sectors. Those that already understand IoT (e.g., manufacturing, transportation, and healthcare) will record the most immediate growth." — Senior Analyst Milan Kalal, IDC CEMA
