Top three contributors for the global IoT platform market are elaborated below:

IoT platform market in APAC: Increased investments in infrastructure development by governments in India, China, and the Philippines and the modernization of local business by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in these countries is the driving force behind the growth of the IoT platform market in APAC. In addition, the smart city initiatives by the governments in APAC to improve city management operations and deliver better public services boost the adoption of embedded sensors in connecting smart machines over the Internet, leading to further growth of the market in this region.

According to Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio, specializing in research on embedded systems, “China is the key leading country in APAC. The country’s growth is attributable to initiatives adopted by the Chinese government such as Made in China Strategy 2025 and Internet Plus.”

IoT platform market in EMEA: Factors such as favorable government support and increased industrial pressure for digital transformations of traditional industries to enhance business productivity and gain a competitive advantage are the fundamental driving forces behind the growth of the IoT platform market in EMEA. The manufacturing, automotive, and transportation sectors are increasingly adopting embedded sensors, thus driving further growth of the IoT market in Europe.

IoT platform market in the Americas: The IoT market in the Americas is driven by the rapid growth of industrial, automotive, and healthcare sectors coupled with the adoption of IoT in these industries to achieve operational efficiency and competitive gains.
