IoT Analytics publishes first ever global overview of 640+ enterprise IoT use cases


The 2016 database of enterprise IoT use cases contains extensive information on 640 real IoT projects, including details on project location, industry, end-user as well as key vendors involved in each project.

PRESS RELEASE. Hamburg, Germany – 11 Aug 2016 //

IoT Analytics, the leading provider of market insights for the Internet of Things (IoT), today published a comprehensive IoT use case database, focusing on non-consumer IoT use cases.

The new project database itemizes more than 640 publicly announced IoT use cases in greater detail across 10 major segments covering applications in 60+ countries worldwide. More than 300 IoT vendors are identified as either hardware, software, or connectivity providers for these projects.

IoT use cases implemented in Industrial settings make up the largest part of identified projects (22%), followed by projects which are part of Smart City initiatives (20%) and projects evolving around Smart Energy generation and distribution (13%).

Most identified projects are set in North America (44%), however, Europe (34%) and Asia Pacific (16%) also play an important role.

The database entails only Internet of Things use cases which have in fact been realized or are currently being completed. In the majority of projects, the end-user can be identified by name and a link to an online project description is available. All information is presented in a structured form, allowing for a wide range of further analyses and deep-dives.

Commenting on the findings, IoT Analytics Managing Director Knud Lasse Lueth said: “In the last months, a number of firms have approached us to understand which IoT use cases are being implemented in their industries and by whom. We are now in the position to answer this question holistically. The database allows for a deep understanding of the current IoT ecosystem and serves as an important basis for anyone who wants to look beyond the hype of the Internet of Things and get real about actual IoT use cases.”
