Gartner Research expects growth in the number of devices connected to the Internet to include 26 billion by 2020
This figure excludes personal tablet computers and smart phones.

A modern study of Gartner (Gartner) for research into the growth of the “Internet of things” or devices connected to the Internet, which excludes personal computers, Tablet PC, smart phones, amounting to 26 billion used by 2020, representing a rise of 30 times the $ 0.9 billion in 2009.

Gartner found that technology-based products “Internet of things” and its service providers will achieve significant growth in revenues exceeding $ 300 billion will be concentrated mainly in the service sector by 2020, which would in turn bring added value to the world economy amounts to $ 1.9 trillion in global sales across various consumer markets.

The “Internet of things” is a network of physical products that contain built-in technology to communicate or interact with the external environment over the Internet.

In this context, said Peter Middleton, Research Director at Gartner, said that the growth rate “Internet of things” far exceed the growth rates of other built-in appliances, by 2020 there will be smart phones, tablet computers and personal computers to about 7.3 billion machine, but will expand the scope of the use of “technical stuff” at the same time at a much faster rate and will be used in about 26 billion device?

Based on the low cost of adding technology “Internet of things” to consumer products, Gartner expects that this technology is commonly used “hidden” in many areas do not use communication techniques all the time, which will be collected at the same time as between products that have the ability, but needs to be “done,” and products containing “Internet of things” does not require any activation by clients.

In addition, the companies will use the technique of “Internet of things”, where I will be selling a range of products that use technology in various markets, including advanced medical devices, sensors and automated factories, and sector-specific applications of industrial robots, microscopic sensors that increase crop yields, automotive sensors and systems for monitoring the safety of infrastructure in various areas such as roads, railways, water distribution and electric power transmission.

Middleton said that the cost of these elements combined will be reduced by the year 2020, which will connect the normal benefits, even for the treatments that cost less than $ 1, which would open the door to the possibility of linking everything together, from the simplest to the most complex, with the ability to remotely control and monitor and sensor changes.

And by that time it will not link several segments and product categories, with the advent of the year 2020, product designers dream about various ways in which they can invest this communication technology, will be used in smart products, so we expect to see the next revolution in the world of devices.

The “Internet of things” consisting of hardware (the physical product), software, services, and information services related to this product, and the “Gartner” here to the companies that provide the hardware (physical product) software and services as being suppliers of technology “Internet of things”, who are expected to report their sales revenue in the market as a result of their industrialization for “Internet of things” worth 309 billion dollars by 2020.

It is expected that additional economic value (the total interest earned through the sale and use of the “Internet of things”) worth 1.9 trillion dollars in various sectors by the year 2020, which will be distributed on the following sectors: industry (15%), health care (15%), the insurance sector (11%).

The added value consists of the “Internet of things” from a combination of advanced operations in this technology, and everyone started to reap the benefits, and the unprecedented growth in the balance of investment opportunities opened by this technique, all of which are derived from a combination of sophisticated technology and specific (such as communication and automation of manufacturing systems), leading to more investment common and widely-used, such as a set of intelligent building “techniques that include the use of luminaires with LED backlight technology and systems for heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

Emerging regions will also see rapid growth in the sector, which will lead the evolution of the concepts of safety and security and the prevention of losses in the insurance sector, where the “Internet of things” to facilitate the use of new business models, such as insurance based on account usage measured by data in real time.

While the services sector will continue to Bank and securities operations of innovation in mobile technology and the simple and easy payment through POS terminals, how much they will invest in the development of security systems and physical protection.

In addition, the “Internet of things” by supporting a wide range of devices and services of health and fitness related development in the medical sector, which will reap great benefits in the health care sector.

It will also compact connected sensors to generate added value in the utilities sector, transport, agriculture, as well as most industries benefited generally from this technique, where the plant will work more efficiently through the use of intelligent building technology.
