IoT in Network Service Market

Market overview

The internet of things (IoT) services industry includes sales of IoT as a service and related devices. End-user firms benefit from business entities that provide professional and managed services such as network management, data management platforms, infrastructure, and IoT technology implementation to make them more automated and intelligent. Internet of things (IoT) services are provided by IoT service providers, who offer consultancy, security, and analytics services according to the business's needs.

Professional and managed services are the two most common types of internet of things (IoT) services. A professional service is an intangible product sold by a contractor or product vendor to assist a customer in managing a particular aspect of their business. Manufacturing, retail, IT & telecom, transportation & logistics, utilities, healthcare, energy, and others are examples of verticals. Smart buildings, smart manufacturing, smart transportation and logistics, smart healthcare, smart retail, and smart energy are some of the uses of internet of things services.

Companies are resuming operations and adapting to the new normal as they recover from the COVID-19 impact, which had previously resulted in restrictive containment measures such as social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities, all of which created operational challenges.

The IoT service industry is predicted to be driven by a growth in the internet of things application cases. The areas where IoT can be utilized to automate processes and increase efficiency are known as IoT use cases. IoT has found applications in a variety of domains throughout time, including manufacturing, farming, smartwatches, smart cities, transportation, and other fields, which has raised the demand for IoT services such as consultancy, data management, network management, and security services, and others. Telit, a leading IoT enabler, for example, offers an IoT security system that allows customers to control and monitor surveillance while also collecting and analyzing data to improve building security and turn them into smart buildings. The IoT use cases are predicted to fuel market expansion by increasing demand for IoT services.

COVID-19 Impact on IOT in network service Market

During the pandemic, IoT device usage has risen in a variety of industries, including healthcare, utilities, manufacturing, and transportation and logistics. As a result, there is a growing demand for IoT professional services across several sector verticals. In healthcare, for example, IoT professional services are increasingly used in telemedicine solutions such as remote patient monitoring and remote diagnostics, as well as linked ambulance and connected workforce solutions. As a result, as the number of instances of COVID-19 rises, so does the demand for IoT-based solutions to enhance the conditions of patients and healthcare workers. Furthermore, the COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on the energy industry, allowing business leaders to consider IoT professional services as a replacement for manual infrastructure intervention by field personnel. To address potential failures, organizations have begun to consider intelligent asset management systems for remote monitoring, alerts and notifications, remote services and control, predictive analytics, and preventive maintenance using historical and real-time data analysis.


The demand for greater connectivity has risen dramatically over the years as a result of technical improvement and growing inventiveness having a positive impact on IoT adoption in the telecom network sector

The demand for greater connectivity has grown dramatically over the years as a result of technical improvement and growing inventiveness. This is likely to boost IoT adoption in the telecom industry, resulting in market expansion. Furthermore, as the volume of data related to telecommunications increases, so will the requirement for data management technologies. The risk connected with data privacy, on the other hand, is one of the major worries that could have a negative influence on market growth throughout the projection period. Manufacturers might also underline the importance of wireless connectivity and the Internet of Things. An increase in telco adoption, penetration of smart connected devices, and demand for network bandwidth control and automation in communication operations are expected to boost the IoT network services market. Additionally, the developing next-generation wireless networks, as well as the utilization of smart technologies and distributed applications, are expected to present considerable potential opportunities for the telecom IoT market throughout the forecast period. Vodafone Idea (Vi) launched an integrated IoT solution in April 2021 to take advantage of the Digital India and Smart Cities missions' prospects.

Market growth will be boosted by the use of IoT-powered smart cameras for security:

Security can be a serious worry in remote regions where pricey equipment is put. Other resources are also employed to power the equipment in remote areas, such as batteries and fuel. For telecom organizations, theft of equipment and consumable resources can be costly. As a result, telecom businesses must assure the implementation of robust security protocols. At their remote locations, telecom companies can deploy IoT-powered smart cameras. Smart cameras can identify tampering on-site and immediately notify the necessary authorities. Telecom businesses can also utilize beacons and RFID badges to secure the perimeter and prevent unwanted entry. This method can also be used by telecom companies to construct a geofence for their IoT devices.


The lack of spectrum allocation regulations is a major hurdle to market expansion

The lack of spectrum allocation regulations is a major impediment to market expansion. Relationships with network service providers and IoT platform suppliers change regionally, affecting relationships between IoT platform providers and Network-as-a-Service providers significantly. Additionally, telecom service providers are struggling to keep up with customer demand for bandwidth-intensive applications and high-quality network experiences. The inability to build a healthy partnership between IoT platform suppliers and Network-as-a-Service providers, as well as IoT platform vendors changing regionally, is projected to stymie the IoT network Service Market's growth.

Data security and privacy concerns are acting as a roadblock to industry expansion.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is vulnerable to threats that could result in significant financial and data losses. More than 70% of IoT devices include major security flaws. The IoT professional services market offers considerable growth potential for businesses of all sizes and industries; yet, preserving data security and privacy is a major problem for market participants. The installed smart devices and sensors continuously generate a large amount of data, which is projected to aid data-handling firms in gaining insights into their competitors' market positions. Enterprises are demanding improved security and privacy protections as the popularity of IoT professional services grows. As the number of IoT devices grows, a slew of security and privacy vulnerabilities will emerge, making every endpoint, gateway, sensor, and smartphone a possible hacking target. As a result, there is a critical demand for enterprise IoT security and privacy protection.
