Market Overview

The Global Internet of Things Operating System Market Size Will significantly Grow At a CAGR of 43.65% By the Forecast Period.

An operating system manages computer hardware and software resources and delivers shared services for computer programs. IoT defines an operating system as the edge gateway, which offers connectivity to devices through multiple protocols, and also provides limited edge computing various capabilities. It integrates various functions of the connected devices and servers for improving network communications. It also enables programmers to develop applications on typical IoT devices.

The IoT operating systems can deal with the diverse requirements of heterogeneous hardware platforms and application scenarios and provide an adaptive Internet Protocol (IP) network stack and a standard developer-friendly application programming interface (API).

Market Dynamics

Rising Demand for Cloud Computing and Mobility

The growing popularity of cloud computing is creating substantial opportunities for the IoT operating system market. Cloud computing provides significant storage volume applications and data, further improving server processing capability. IoT generates an enormous volume of data, and cloud computing paves the way for data processing and helps in lowering infrastructural complexity, and enables enterprises to lower operational costs. The debouching bring your own device (BYOD) trend is garnering attention, with smartphones, tablets, wearables, and other portable devices leveraging cloud computing platforms, such as Android and iOS. Manufacturing and retail sectors are also opting for cloud computing to save costs in terms of the cloud environment.

Increasing Adoption of IoT in SMEs

As per Nordic Semiconductor, the deployment of operational IoT solutions in large companies is around 20%, and in some industries, it is as high as 80%. But in small to medium enterprises (SMEs), the adoption is close to 10%, with low levels of general awareness reported. As per a report by NASSCOM, start-ups offering innovative solutions play a key role in driving the growth of IoT in India. Those start-ups offering innovative IoT solutions have attracted over USD 60 million in investments since 2014. It is estimated that the decreasing cost of sensors will fuel the adoption of IoT in small and medium-sized companies in the future.

The incorporation of IoT is essential for the growth of SMEs as data plays a critical role in decision making. Retrieving and analyzing big data analytics allows SMEs to better interact with customers, and they can further improve efficiency, reduce operational costs, and identify trends. Moreover, IoT incorporation provides SMEs with tools that help them ensure that they are operating with the latest technologies. By doing so, these companies can innovate ideas into reality. Therefore, SMEs are expected to adopt IoT devices in the coming years.

Security and Privacy Concerns Hampers the Market Growth

The colossal adoption of IoT has raised security concerns as the technology is susceptible to data breaches and security errors. As per an HP study, about 70% of commonly used IoT devices pose vulnerabilities, which result in security theft and ultimately hinder the market growth. Various governments are implementing laws to minimize data breaches and promote the adoption of IoT. For instance, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of Europe aims to protect European citizens from privacy and data breaches. Under the GDPR, any company or individual that processes data is also responsible for its protection. The Internet Security Law 2017 in China imposes data localization, and personal data is not allowed to leave China. Thus, security laws will help to overcome users' privacy concerns and offset the impact of this restraint to some extent in the coming years.
