Sensor rise: the number of smart devices will increase to 25 billion in 2020.

With the proliferation of sensor interconnection devices in the Internet of Things, Gartner, a consulting firm, predicts a 30% increase in interconnected goods this year and next. Analysts forecast today that the number of Internet of Things devices will soar from 3.8 billion to 4.9 billion by 2015.

Analysts predict that the popularity of sensors will greatly speed up the development and production of intelligent devices. By 2020, about 25 billion smart devices will appear in the global market. In other words, the car breathing monitoring safety seat is not far away from you.

Simple figures illustrate the problem. According to IDC figures, the total number of personal smartphones shipped at the beginning of the year exceeded 1 billion for the first time. Compared with smartphones, the device is simple in structure and low in cost, and its scale growth rate should exceed that of smartphones.


The company also pointed out that in the vertical field, the most frequently used areas are manufacturing, public utilities and transportation, which will strongly promote the development of the Internet of Things in the next year. According to Gartner estimates, there will be 736 million IOT equipment in these three fields.

By 2020, the rankings will change: public utilities will become (thanks to investment in smart meters), manufacturing and government departments will be ranked in two or three places, with 1.7 billion devices. The government's rise to third place on the list was mainly attributable to the projected investment in smart street lights and regional lighting (for energy-saving purposes).


Gartner believes that the Internet of Things and digital acceleration technologies like cloud, mobile and social networking will bring risks to many current businesses. It also said that enterprises would accept the device as if they had to accept IT consumption.

Gartner also believes that in the next few years, a certain degree of built-in intelligent interconnection devices will become the standard, and will quickly spread the impact to mainstream products and services, thus forming new business models and values. Threats or opportunities depend on your views.

At present, there are many enterprises engaged in manufacturing interconnected equipment. Similar to the rapid prototyping technology of 3D printing and the simple means of crowd-raising for conceptual transformation products, the development of interconnected equipment manufacturing industry has been accelerated. Sensing devices, however, are only the vanguard force of sensor networks.

With the rise of the Internet of things, the security field is also bound to change. Gartner pointed out that interconnected devices will "strongly link" information security, IT security, operational technology security and physical security.

Gartner believes that this means that enterprises will face administrative decisions about security ownership - who will dominate, manage and operate them. By the end of 2017, the company expects more than a fifth of its organizations to use innovative digital security services dedicated to business protection through the Internet of Things.

Gartner added:

The Internet of Things will bring dozens of choice platforms for digital security architecture, hundreds of IT/IoT hybrid integration modes, new standards for each industry and a new application thinking. IT leaders must consider technological differences across domains and develop composite technologies to address the risks and security of logistics networks. In addition, IT leaders need to find a balance between digital business needs and digital security realities as part of the mass production of machines and the uninterrupted transmission of data by sensors.
