According to a recent announcement, analyst firm Research and Markets has added a new “Global Internet of Things Devices Market 2017-2021” report to its offering portfolio. The report predicts that the global IoT devices market will grow at a CAGR of 3.72 percent during the period of 2017 to 2021.

The Global IoT Devices Market 2017-2021 report has been prepared, according to the announcement, based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. Research and Markets said the report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of IoT devices.

The report says the smart home is gaining ground rapidly as consumers look to improve domestic convenience through electronic devices. This is an evolutionary development in the residential real-estate sector with the primary aim to make living more comfortable, convenient, secure, entertaining, and sustainable. Smart home technologies using advanced sensors are affordable and can be used by any average household to connect appliances such as heating modules, lighting systems, air conditioning units, computers, television sets, entertainment systems, security devices, and camera systems.

Further, the report states that security is the biggest concern for individual consumers and enterprises purchasing IoT devices. Connecting the physical world with the digital sphere requires the highest security standards to minimize the impacts of cybersecurity hacks.
