IoT Platforms Company List 2017 Update


The 2017 list of IoT platform companies contains extensive information on 450 IoT platform vendors, including details on capabilities, revenue, key customers, as well as industry focus.

Hamburg, Germany – June 27, 2017 // IoT Analytics, a leading provider of market insights and strategic business intelligence for Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT), just released its current Global IoT Platform Companies List. The comprehensive database now includes 450 IoT Platform companies worldwide which marks a 25% increase compared to the previous year.

Commenting on the updated list, IoT Analytics Managing Director Knud Lasse Lueth said: “The market for IoT Platforms continues to get more crowded and fragmented. However, the dynamics are shifting: While we continue to witness a constant stream of new startups entering this space, most of the larger vendors seem to have made their bets by now – organic new entrants by multinationals are becoming rare”.

The updated IoT Platform database itemizes the 450 market participants in greater detail across 50 sets of information.
