Manufacturing is in the midst of a major digital revolution and is investing in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR), robotics (AGVS, AMRs) and cloud-based simulation and modeling.
Seventy-five percent of IoT technology adopters in the U.S. have already adopted blockchain or are planning to adopt it by the end of 2020. Among the blockchain adopters, 86 percent are implementing the two technologies together in various projects.
More than 3.4 million cellular IoT gateways were shipped globally during 2018, at a total market value of approximately $921 million. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.5 percent, annual shipments are expected to reach 8 million in 2023.
“As artificial intelligence, automation, Internet of Things, blockchain, and 5G become pervasive, their combined impact will reshape standard business architectures. The “outside-in” digital transformation of the past decade is giving way to the “inside-out” potential of data exploited with these exponential technologies.”
The global predictive maintenance market, valued at $28.24 billion by 2025, will grow at a CAGR of 37.9%. Demand for IoT and big data, along with rising concerns regarding asset maintenance and operational costs, is expected to drive the growth.

Applications for the Internet of Things (IoT) are helping to transform the global cargo sector. According to Berg Insight, the number of active tracking devices deployed for cargo loading units — including trailers, intermodal containers, rail freight wagons, air cargo containers, cargo boxes and pallets — reached 6.1 million worldwide in 2018.
