Internet of Things (IoT) in Italy - Statistics & Facts
Internet of Things (IoT) refers to a system of computing devices or smart devices able to transfer data without a human-to-computer or human-to-human interaction.
Italian firms and consumers too are showing an interest in the trend, embracing change and observing how such smart devices evolve over time.
IoT devices can be used in many different sectors. Sectors like the Logistics and Infrastructure industry for instance reported using IoT devices for many tasks including production controlling and predictive maintenance.
Despite the enthusiasm and the willingness to explore such an industry, many companies are not developing IoT projects. Respondents to a survey reported that they consider IoT projects useless for their business type or they do not consider it as a strategic investment.
As all devices are able to transfer data, IoT devices could also be victim to cyberattacks. According to a recent study only 0.7 percent of the interviewed firms reported cyberattacks on Internet of Things systems.
Consumers too are interested and willing to discover IoT devices.
Figures highlight a positive trend towards IoT and smart devices, showing that many consumers are willing to purchase smart and connected devices in the next few years.
The most considered elements regarding the purchase of IoT devices are price and reliability.
The high price is the main reason for not purchasing IoT products in Italy, followed by privacy concerns and lack of awareness about IoT devices.
