Which companies are best poised to make a difference in the IoT space this year? One publisher takes a look at who they feel are the 10 hottest Internet of Things companies. Some of the organizations they showcase are established, while some of them are new start-ups. Either way, these players are set to make big moves in 2019 after raising rounds of funding, announcing new products, and landing strategic partnerships. Some of the companies on the list may surprise you.
At this point, it may seem like overkill to point out the continued growth bound to happen in the Internet of Things space for the years to come and how it will create new opportunities for companies, both established and new, from a hardware and software perspective.
But just in case: Gartner predicts 25 billion connected devices by 2021, IDC forecasts $1.2 trillion in IoT business spending by 2022, and Accenture estimates the global industrial IoT market could reach $14.2 trillion by 2030.
