ON World: $3.4 Billion Invested in Wireless Smart Object Startups

San Diego, California (PRWEB) March 27, 2014

Wireless wise things technologies have sped up development for Internet of Things (IoT) markets, according to international technology research firm ON World.

. Advances with low power cordless components, MEMs sensing units and cloud based software have made wireless smart things among the best financial investment areas for the Web of Things, stated Mareca Hatler, ON Worlds research director. The landscape has actually shifted from commercial, commercial and vertical niches to mass market customer chances.

. ON Worlds analysis of a number of hundred companies in 20 markets found that $ 3.4 billion has been bought wireless smart object startups including element providers, stack licensors, device makers and software application developers.

. There are four significant investable categories for cordless Internet of Things companies:

. Wireless Sensing unit Network Components and Enabling Technologies

. More than two dozen wireless sensing unit network (WSN) component suppliers have raised $ 489 million in venture capital with financial investments approaching $ 1 billion so far through acquisitions and public providings.

. Silicon Labs recently got Energy Micro that provides low power microprocessors and a fourfold decrease in power consumption for RF transceivers. ARMs acquisition of 6LoWPAN pioneer Sensinode has actually provided enhanced presence for IoT innovations and the migration to Web Method (IP) addressable sensors and actuators.

. Integrated Systems & & Smart Gadgets

. Integrated systems and smart gadget manufacturers make up over half of the companies ON World examined and 83 % of the acquisitions. Googles acquisition of Nest for $ 3.2 billion illustrates the growing confidence in IoT markets and enhancing mass market approval of disruptive wireless clever objects such as the Learning Thermostat and Protect, a wise smoke and carbon monoxide gas detector.

. Wireless wise lighting is another rapidly growing location where more than 50 years of LED research is starting to reward through Net linked wireless allowed LED light bulbs. Backed by the Connected Lighting Partnership and lighting giants such as Philips and Osram Sylvania, ZigBee Light Link currently leads the marketplace for domestic wireless LED lighting.

. By 2020, there will be over 100 million Internet linked wireless light bulbs and lamps worldwide.

. Cloud Software application and Data Analytics

. Cloud software application IoT startups concentrated on WSN options have the largest valuations and raised more than any of the other product classifications. Although the number of acquisitions and IPOs are presently lower than the other classifications, numerous of the investments are relatively current.

. A few of the biggest investments to date have been in smart home and energy management platforms by Alarm.com, iControl Networks and Tendril that have each raised over $ 100 million. Growing locations are seamless cloud connectivity, quality of service and integration platforms such as those provided Arrayent, Ayla Networks, GreenWave Truth, Revolv, WeMonitor and Zonoff.

. Wearables, Mobile Sensing Gadgets and Mobile Apps

. The 4th category ON World examined is cordless wearable, body area network and mobile sensing gadgets that link to the cloud through smartphones and tablet PCs. Although it is a reasonably new investment location, this category has already raised half a billion dollars consisting of Jawbone, Fitbit and Basis Science (just recently gotten by Intel).

. According to ON World, 5 billion Net linked wireless sensors and actuators will be delivered by 2019.

. ON Worlds Wireless Net of Things Set covers all the significant WSN technologies such as ZigBee, 802.15.4, 6LoWPAN, WiFi, Bluetooth, Z-Wave, EnOcean and others in this seven report set that includes: 802.15.4 & & ZigBee, IP Smart Things Networks, Health & & Health Wireless Sensing unit Networks, Smart Building Wireless Sensing unit Networks, Smart House Sensing unit Networks, Smart Wireless Lighting and Industrial Wireless Sensing unit Networks.
