Internet of Things (IoT) in Italy - Statistics & Facts

Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a vast network of smart objects which work together in collecting and analyzing data and autonomously performing actions. Advancements in communications and data analytics technologies as well as the growing prevalence of connected devices in our everyday life have made IoT a trend to stay. Italian organizations and consumers are also playing a part in this game of connectedness, contributing to the growth of the Italian IoT market which reached around eight billion euros in 2021. Major  IoT segments in the Italian market  include smart metering, smart asset management, smart home, and smart city.

The influence of the Internet of Things is evident in other markets as well, such as agriculture, the automotive industry, and telecommunications. For instance, 4.0 technologies support different agricultural processes in Italy, like farming and sowing. Furthermore, the new 5G connection will allow IoT devices to communicate and share data faster than ever.

Smart city

Smart cities utilize information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure and applications to provide smart services to residents that lead to a more convenient way of life. In Italy, Florence is generally the highest-rated city in terms of smartness, although Bergamo is ranked first in terms of online services. Tourism, security, waste collection, and environmental monitoring are also areas that municipalities hope to improve with smart solutions, notably by developing apps related to these sectors.

Smart home

The smart home market in Italy was estimated at 650 million euros in 2021. The term “smart home” includes several subsegments, such as home appliances, speakers, security, heating, air conditioning, and lighting. In that year, home appliances were the biggest smart home subsegment in Italy, accounting for 21 percent of the market, followed by smart speakers and security. Smart home systems are being rapidly adopted in Italy for several different reasons, among which safety is the most important.
