The IoT Hardware Market and OEM Ecosystem: Opportunities, Challenges, and Forecast 2015 - 2020

The IoT Hardware Market and OEM Ecosystem: Opportunities, Challenges, and Forecast 2015 - 2020

Hardware products in Internet of Things (IoT) typically include middleware such as microcontrollers, microprocessors, embedded systems, sensors, gateway devices and allied materials such as amplifiers, step down converters, batteries, fixtures, etc. OEM Hardware in “embedded things” will play an important role in the emerging IoT ecosystem and will be characterized by real-time computing, low power consumption, low maintenance, and high availability.

IoT hardware and CPE manufacturers are one the first beneficiaries of developments in the IoT business. Internet enabled hardware, chips, edge devices and such other hardware used in IoT will constitute 30% market of total revenue generated in the year 2020. The revenue generated in 2015 of $336 billion will reach to $453 billion through 2020 with a CAGR of 6.2%.

This research identifies opportunities for embedded hardware in IoT including Other Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) providers. Mind Commerce also evaluates the market opportunities and outlook for OEM channels and quantifies the markets and business for IoT hardware. The report includes detailed forecasts for 2015 to 2020. All purchases of Mind Commerce reports includes time with an expert analyst who will help you link key findings in the report to the business issues you're addressing. This needs to be used within three months of purchasing the report.

OEM hardware developers
IoT service and app developers
Network operators and other CSPs
Big Data and data management companies
IoT hardware, platform, and infrastructure providers
ISV, SI, and VAR channels for software implementation

General Methodology

Mind Commerce Publishing's research methodology encompasses input from a wide variety of sources.

We rely heavily upon our Subject Matter Experts (SME) in terms of their market knowledge, unique perspective, and vision. We utilize SME industry contacts as well as previous customers and participants in our market surveys and interactive interviews.

In addition, we rely upon our extensive internal database, which contains modeling, qualitative analysis, and quantitative data. We review secondary sources and compare to our primary sources to update previous findings (for prior version reports) and/or compile baseline information for technology and market modeling.

We share preliminary models with industry contacts (select previous clients, experts, and thought leaders) to verify the veracity of initial modeling. Prior to final report production (analysis, findings, and conclusions), we engage in an internal review with internal SMEs as well as cross-expertise, senior staff members to challenge results.

We believe that forecasts should be prepared as part of an integrated process which involves both quantitative as well as qualitative factors. We follow the following 3-step process for forecasting.

Forecasting Methodology

Step 1 - Forecasts Input: The inputs for the present and historical revenues are derived from industry players. Financial and other quantitative data for individual sub-market categories are derived from original research and tested with interviews with major industry constituents.

Step 2 - Forecasting of Future Years: Mind Commerce extends forecasts based on a variety of factors including demand drivers as well as supply side data. Key success factors and assumptions are considered.

Step 3 - Validation of Data: The final step is to validate projections, which is accomplished in consultation with both internal and external industry experts, including both topic and regional experts. Adjustments are made to the forecasts based on factors identified throughout this process.
