Device management and application enablement IoT platforms market expected to reach US$ 4.9 billion in 2022
From the report:
The market for device management (DMP) and application enablement platforms (AEP) is notably crowded and has in recent time experienced a new wave of investments from major cloud infrastructure providers and enterprise software vendors. Berg Insight estimates that the total market value for commercial DMPs and AEPs was US$ 1.1 billion in 2017. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 36.2 percent, the market value is expected to reach US$ 4.9 billion in 2022.
In 2017–2018, the major cloud infrastructure providers Amazon, Microsoft and Google continued to invest heavily in their IoT offerings to drive growth in their cloud businesses. Berg Insight expects that the higher level of involvement of the cloud infrastructure providers over time is likely to lead to further specialisation among the IoT platform vendors and more partnerships between vendors with complementing capabilities.
Start-ups such as Ayla Networks, Arrayent (now part of Prodea), Greenwave Systems and Waylay have built substantial customer bases in the consumer electronics and smart home markets. Amazon, Google, Bosch and Samsung also serve large internal customers in this domain.
