The IoT Middleware Market size is estimated at USD 15.16 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 35.92 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 18.82% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Key Highlights

  • The growing adoption of IoT technology across end-user industries, such as manufacturing, automotive, and healthcare, is positively driving the market’s growth. With the traditional manufacturing sector amid a digital transformation, IoT is fueling the next industrial revolution of intelligent connectivity. This is changing how industries approach increasingly complex processes of systems and machines to improve efficiency and reduce downtime.​ With the growth in the number of devices connected to the internet, there is a greater need for seamless collaboration and connectivity between those devices, thus making IoT middleware a significant focus area for businesses.
  • Additionally, the IoT Middleware market is witnessing substantial demand in various This is driven by the need to manage the growing number of connected devices and the vast amount of data they generate. The integration of IoT middleware in end-user sectors is expected to streamline operations, enhance service delivery, and create new business opportunities.
  • Adopting an industry-agnostic application middleware plays a vital role in reducing the complexity of future changes to their IoT solutions. Further, with the growing integration of IoT into mobile devices, machinery, equipment, and tablets, among other devices, the need for a platform to support and integrate such demands has become necessary.
  • Government initiatives, such as smart city projects, are expected to create demand for IoT middleware. Trends, such as connected buildings, smart factories, and smart homes, are expected to create opportunities for the market. Moreover, the smart cities' concept has marked a great prospect with the IoT in the energy, waste, and infrastructure sectors.
  • In the post-COVID-19 world, cloud-based remote and secure control over industrial IoT without the need for a highly trained workforce has become necessary. Moreover, the proliferation of connected devices in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, and transportation is further expected to drive the demand for IoT Middleware solutions in the coming years.

IoT Middleware Market Trends

Manufacturing Expected to Have the High Potential Growth

  • Industry 4.0 and IoT are at the center of new technological approaches for developing, producing, and managing the entire logistics chain, otherwise known as smart factory automation. Massive shifts in manufacturing due to Industry 4.0 and the acceptance of IoT require enterprises to adopt agile, smarter, and innovative ways to advance production with technologies that complement and augment human labor with robotics and reduce industrial accidents caused by process failure.​
  • With the high rate of adoption of connected devices and sensors and the enabling of M2M communication, there has been a surge in data points that are generated in the manufacturing industry. These data points can be of various kinds, ranging from a metric describing the time taken for the material to pass through one process cycle to a more advanced one, such as calculating the material stress capability in the automotive industry.​
  • IoT Middleware can implement IoT-based virtual manufacturing applications as well as IoT-based factory automation, which encourages manufacturers to deploy IoT devices in key manufacturing establishments. Another factor driving the market growth is the advantage of IoT in attaining “informed” manufacturing. IoT middleware enables four essential elements of manufacturing, such as Products, People, Processes, and Infrastructure, to work seamlessly.
  • Also, a significant consideration while aiming for the manufacturing industry is the promotion of flexibility through open architectures that support customization and streamlined software upgrades across multiple devices. Therefore, this segment is expected to benefit from the rapid emergence of Open-source IoT middleware developments.
  • Additionally, manufacturing organizations in many countries worldwide are increasingly investing in emerging technologies, thus creating significant growth opportunities for adopting IoT middleware in the manufacturing sector. For instance, according to a survey conducted by CommBank in January 2022, 42% of Australian manufacturers intend to invest in the emerging technology area relating to intelligent automation and robotic process automation over the next two to three years. Investment in mobile, connectivity, and the Internet of Things (IoT) was among the second intended investment areas, with 40% of manufacturers intending to invest.

North America Region is Anticipated to Holds Major Market Share

  • North America is expected to be a prominent market due to the growing role of IoT among the significant revenue-generating end-user industries of the region, driven by the deployment of connected cars, smart energy projects, home automation, and a focus on smart manufacturing. The US and Canada are the early adopters of technologies, such as Big Data, IoT, and mobility, and it creates significant growth opportunities for the IoT middleware market.
  • The United States is on the verge of the fourth industrial revolution. Data is being used on a large scale for production while integrating it with a wide variety of manufacturing systems throughout the supply chain. Therefore, the emergence of information technology and the increased usage of IoT across a wide range of manufacturing, industrial, and automotive applications have added a new dimension to conducting business operations.
  • Manufacturers in the region rely on IIoT platforms for general process optimization, dashboards and visualization, and condition monitoring. SMEs are becoming increasingly flexible in incorporating new technologies with their existing systems, whereas large manufacturers have massive budgets for digitization.
  • Another significant driver is the prevalence of an environment of increasing input, labor cost, and competition from large global manufacturers, which is expected to attract investment in technologies such as IoT to remain competitive and maintain operating margins.
  • Aiding this trend is the formation of the “Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) 2.0,” an initiative undertaken to make the industry universities. The federal government is investing in emerging technologies and smart manufacturing initiatives, such as the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition (SMLC), to drive and facilitate the broad adoption of manufacturing intelligence. Such trends in the market are also expected to emphasize the need for IoT middleware solutions in the market.
