“Connected or IoT devices in commercial buildings or homes enable a variety of applications and provide benefits related to automation, convenience, and, of course, energy efficiency—and these benefits are starting to resonate on a growing basis among building managers, homeowners, and even renters,” says Neil Strother, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “Though this market is still nascent, and we recognize key challenges, like potential security risks, the IoT market for devices has a long-term upside, with the associated revenue expected to more than quadruple during the next 10 years.”

In addition to security risks that have surfaced from IoT devices commandeered by bad actors exploiting vulnerabilities, the market also struggles with interoperability issues, and a level of uncertainty around the unclear IoT device value proposition, according to the report. However, it has shown resilience, and supply-side stakeholders recognize the need to solve these hurdles.
