Current state of the 360+ IoT Platforms


Last week, we released the updated 2016 List of 360+ IoT Platforms. The list is an update of the popular 2015 list of 260+ IoT Platforms. In the meantime more than 100 new IoT Platforms have emerged, either new startups or large corporations now offering an IoT Platform (Hitachi, Siemens…).

The updated company list is structured along 54 columns and enables a comparison of the different companies by aspects such as location or focus area. For some companies it also provides platform announcement dates and funding.

These are some of the high-level findings when looking at the data:

Segment focus

Of the 360+ platforms we identified 251 with one or several focus areas. The others market themselves as general IoT Platforms. Most of the focused IoT Platforms are operating around the Smart Home (81) while a lot also target manufacturing environments (68).


 

Market entry

New Platforms continue to enter the market. In the first 5 months of 2016, we counted 16 new platforms (9% of the 147 platforms whose launch date we could identify)
