Key Market Trends

Increasing Adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine Technologies

Data generated from IoT helps businesses understand and utilize patterns incorporated into the decision-making cycle to enhance product design and development. Data management strategies allow these businesses to detect errors quickly, analyze performance, and access metrics. All of these offer insights into product use that, in turn, help to spot areas needing development and improve existing product versions.
Moreover, data management helps streamline and increase the effectiveness of operations in IoT-adopted infrastructure. While operating parts of a system, devices may deviate from established behavior patterns; data management techniques help recognize such deviation and alert the automation process handling team. ?
According to a study by Korea Herald in 2021, South Korea’s internet-of-things (IoT) device subscriptions hit over 10 million in 2020 due to the growing use of automation and remote control services. According to the Ministry of Science and ICT data of the end of 2020, the number of mobile connections to such devices stood at 10.05 million, up around 2 million from the previous year. Also, in 2021, there was approximately 1,335 Internet of Things service businesses in South Korea. This growing number of IoT subscriptions indicates a market boost in the region.

For instance, during the pandemic, Emerson announced the acquisition of the ProgeaGroup, a provider of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), plant analytics, human-machine interface (HMI), and supervisory control technologies. The activity has justified offering solutions that increasingly optimize end-user energy and operating costs.
