Number of internet of things (IoT) connected devices worldwide in 2018, 2025 and 2030
(in billions)
IoT connected devices worldwide 2030
By the end of 2018, there were an estimated 22 billion internet of things (IoT) connected devices in use around the world. As the sophistication of both hardware and software in the consumer electronics industry skyrockets, an increasing share of the electronic devices produced around the world are manufactured with internet connectivity. Forecasts suggest that by 2030 around 50 billion of these IoT devices will be in use around the world, creating a massive web of interconnected devices spanning everything from smartphones to kitchen appliances.

Internet of Things

The internet of things or IoT simply refers to the overarching network created by billions of internet-compatible devices and machines which share data and information around the world. The most commonly associated products are consumer electronics devices such as smartphones and smart speakers, but larger mechanical systems such as cars, household security systems, and even traffic lights are rapidly becoming integrated into this network due to their internet capabilities. As of 2018, the market’s two biggest segments in terms of revenue are “industrial internet” and “connected cities”, two uses which fall well outside the realm of simple smartphone data exchange. Business leaders operating in every industry from financial services to energy and mining are realizing the critical importance of IoT within their organizations and acting quickly to invest in the technology.
