IIoT market for smart beacons technology to grow at a high rate from 2021 to 2026; The IIoT industry for smart beacons is expected to grow at a significant rate between 2021 and 2026. Smart beacons function as signal transmitters that are majorly battery-powered and can be configured with the help of a mobile app. This makes them scalable and highly portable; when Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as smartphones and tablets, come in a beacon’s vicinity, the signal turns on the application in these devices and triggers activities associated with the beacon signal. Further, the increasing demand for IoT solutions worldwide is expected to propel the growth of the market for smart beacons.
The manufacturing vertical held the largest share of the IIoT market in 2020; over the past few years, there has been an introduction of new approaches and technologies, such as smart factories, cyber-physical systems, and intelligent robotics. Governments in countries such as Germany, the UK, France, the US, China, and India have taken several initiatives for encouraging manufacturers to increase their investments for the adoption of IIoT solutions. The manufacturing vertical is expected to hold the largest share of the IIoT industry in 2021. However, the demand for the agriculture vertical is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
IIoT market in APAC to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period; The IIoT industry in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
