Global IoT Revenues Grow by an Average $200 Billion Per Year

The main purpose of IoT is to create a self-reporting network of connected devices that can communicate with each other and users in real-time. This intelligent digital technology has taken automation, monitoring and control, and analytics to a whole new level and has become an essential part of Industry 4.0. The many advantages of the Internet of Things have helped the technology to enter almost every market imaginable, driving impressive revenue growth.

According to Statista Market Insights, in 2019, the global IoT market grossed nearly $510 billion in revenue. A year later, this figure rose to $544 billion. However, the market gained real momentum in 2021, with revenue surging by almost 40% that year alone and reaching $773 billion. Although the annual growth rate started slowing down after that peak, market revenue continued growing by an average of $200 billion annually. In 2022, global IoT revenues hit over $970 billion, increasing by 27% year-over-year.

Although the annual growth rate slipped to 21% last year, the market still hit a massive new milestone and became a trillion-dollar industry. Statista expects IoT revenues to grow by a further $200 billion in 2024 and reach $1.38 trillion. This figure is forecasted to jump by 60% and hit a whopping $2.2 trillion by 2028.

Automotive IoT to Make One-Third of Total Revenues in 2024

A few industries have been transformed by IoT technology like car manufacturing. IoT connectivity enables the car’s electronic control units and software-reliant components to be updated wirelessly. The widespread use of the technology in the automotive industry has made it the largest and fastest-growing segment of the IoT market.

According to Statista, more than one-third of total IoT revenue in 2024, or $494 billion, will come from the automotive industry. This also represents a considerable 25% increase compared to last year, when the sector generated $397 billion in revenue.

As the second-largest segment of the market, the industrial IoT is forecasted to grow by 18% year-over-year and hit $325 billion in revenue in 2024. Consumer IoT and smart finance follow with $192 billion and $132 billion in revenue and 5% and 17% growth rates, respectively.

Statista also expects the total number of IoT connections to increase by 19% and 21.3 billion in 2024. By 2028, this figure will jump to over 38 billion.
