The Internet of Things (IoT), a vast network of smart objects which work together in collecting and analyzing data, is a promising concept of the technology industry for the coming years. The global IoT market is projected to nearly double in size between 2014 and 2017, passing the one trillion U.S. dollars mark by that year. By 2019, the global IoT market is forecast to be valued at more than 1.7 trillion U.S. dollars, with the number of connected devices worldwide forecast to reach 20.35 billion in the same year. As of 2015, connected cities, cities or hubs that use information, communication technology and connectivity to address urban problems, remain the most important IoT subsystems.

The consumer electronics industry is the largest IoT market, with projection to increase its value from 1.15 trillion U.S. dollars in 2014 to over 2.2 trillion U.S. dollars by 2020. Another promising segment is the automotive industry, which is also expected to double its market value in the same time span.
