Global Revenue for IoT Devices in the Residential and Commercial Sectors is Expected to Total $732 Billion from 2016 to 2026

Market remains resilient as supply-side stakeholders work to solve industry challenges

A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market for residential and commercial Internet of Things (IoT) devices, providing market forecasts segmented by device, sector, and region, and highlighting the expected trends and potential market size through 2026.

Adoption of IoT devices continues in the residential and commercial building sectors as owners and operators look to take advantage of technologies that can enhance energy management, provide greater control, and increase comfort. As adoption continues, awareness of these devices’ ability to enable greater efficiencies through intelligence at the edge of networks and cloud-based IoT solutions is also growing. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, cumulative global IoT device revenue in the residential and commercial sectors is expected to total more than $732 billion from 2016 to 2026.

“Connected or IoT devices in commercial buildings or homes enable a variety of applications and provide benefits related to automation, convenience, and, of course, energy efficiency—and these benefits are starting to resonate on a growing basis among building managers, homeowners, and even renters,” says Neil Strother, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “Though this market is still nascent, and we recognize key challenges, like potential security risks, the IoT market for devices has a long-term upside, with the associated revenue expected to more than quadruple during the next 10 years.”

In addition to security risks that have surfaced from IoT devices commandeered by bad actors exploiting vulnerabilities, the market also struggles with interoperability issues, and a level of uncertainty around the unclear IoT device value proposition, according to the report. However, it has shown resilience, and supply-side stakeholders recognize the need to solve these hurdles.

The report, IoT Devices for Energy Management, analyzes the market for residential and commercial IoT devices. Global market forecasts for IoT device revenue attributed to the residential and commercial sectors, segmented by device, sector, and region, extend through 2026. The report highlights the expected trends related to residential and commercial IoT devices and examines the potential market size.
