IoT Gateway Devices Market worth over $20bn by 2027

  • Published Date: July 16, 2021

IoT Gateway Devices Market size is set to surpass USD 20 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Increasing government initiatives for the development of smart city projects across developing economies, such as India, Malaysia, and the Philippines, are expected to support the market growth. According to the March 2021 press release by the India Brand Equity Foundation, the Government of India announced to develop 100 smart cities in the country with projected investment of around USD 28.31 billion by 2023. These smart cities are poised to be incorporated with various IoT solutions such as smart traffic controllers, public Wi-Fi hotspots, and connected mobility & transportation infrastructure. Such large-scale smart city projects will fuel the adoption of IoT gateway devices in the market over the forecast timeline.

Growing cyber-attacks and data protection concerns across enterprises are slated to restrain the market expansion. Various SMEs and IT enterprises are incorporating cloud & IoT technologies in their office premises. Through these technologies wireless devices, such as laptops, smartphones, or tablets, can access, control, or monitor critical data over internal servers, exposing crucial data. This data from the IoT ecosystem may lead to several cyber-attacks, increasing the security concerns. Due to these factors, companies are limiting the acceptance of wireless IoT gateway devices in their office premises, restraining the industry growth.
