element14 Fourth Global IoT SurveyThe survey provides an opportunity for Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT product designers and system engineers to share insights about the market.

Cliff Ortmeyer, Global Head of Technical Marketing for element14 says: “The impact of the IoT is now present in all walks of life from home automation and entertainment to healthcare and transport. Intelligent connectivity and AI will drive worldwide technology development and will be key to the growth of Industry 4.0. The results from our next annual survey will provide innovators and designers with a global perspective on emerging technologies that will shape future new product developments. The survey responses will ensure element14 can meet the product needs of our customers now and in the future while giving the design community a forum to share trends, challenges and best practices in the IoT space.”

These insights will also help shape the product range and technical resources offered by element14 to support this diverse and evolving technology.

The survey is open from 10 January to 18 March 2022 with results to be announced in the Spring. Participants in the survey (from eligible countries) can also enter a competition with the opportunity to win:

  • An Apple iPAD 10.2 inch
  • A £250 Amazon gift card (or local currency equivalent)
  • A £50 Amazon gift card (or local currency equivalent)

The element14 2022 annual IoT survey is open to engineers working on IoT solutions. This year’s questions have been designed to provide a deep dive into the IoT industry and responses will provide a greater understanding of the technologies, challenges, and opportunities designers of IoT solutions face.

The results will show how the IoT industry is changing year on year, revealing the full range of potential applications and market trends. Understanding the continued impact COVID-19 has on IoT developments is also a key focus.

During 2020-21, the pandemic had a significant impact on the IoT industry, leading to rapid growth in the development of new medical diagnoses and automated test systems as well as medical equipment with improved connectivity. Industrial systems have also been adversely impacted by the global shortages of key manufacturing components and supply chain issues.

Key results from the 2021 survey revealed the growing role of IoT for industrial automation and control applications essential to the delivery of Industry 4.0. The top three industry segments leading the way in IoT applications included industrial automation and control (25%), home automation (18%) and artificial intelligence (12%).

Despite industrial automation and control being deemed a key market for IoT, there was recognition that Industry 4.0 adoption remained slow, primarily due to concerns over security (32%) and lack of business strategy (30%) hindering the adoption and integration of smart manufacturing solutions.
