IoT forecast for 2020


IoT forecast for 2020


AI smart home support will be welcomed

In 2020, smart home service providers (ISPs) and subscribers will adopt connected home self-care and AI-based smart home support. So far, lengthy phone calls to service provider support centers have become essential in order to solve the problem of users using their smart devices and services.

With the rapid increase in the number of connected devices and the number of services consumed per home, the number and complexity of support calls has increased dramatically, making this trend unsustainable.

In response to 2020, more and more support issues will be transferred to subscribers in the form of self-help and AI-based support. Artificial intelligence will become the main supporting technology, which either automatically solves problems in real time from the source or provides useful suggestions to subscribers to achieve self-help. AI will use smart speakers, voice assistants and smartphones to communicate directly with subscribers, avoiding many calls to the support center.

DIY home safe growth

DIY security solutions for self-monitoring and low-cost monitoring will continue to grow, capturing market share from professionally installed home security leaders.

Significant consumer brand investment will drive DIY solutions for home automation and security throughout the home. Specifically, large consumer brands will invest in platform expansion in the field of Internet of Things, starting to develop momentum in 2019.

As systems become easier to install and prices fall in most product categories, adoption of IoT products will continue to accelerate and enter the mass market.

Smart buildings will become closer than the connected

By 2020, we will almost certainly see more and more intelligent building software being used to monitor systems and IoT devices used in hospitals, schools, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, etc.

Historically, the maintenance of new and old buildings has always been a passive task, and problems are resolved as soon as they occur. Now, IoT and cloud technologies connected through a single platform give smart buildings the potential to become proactive for the first time. It can use filtered sensor data to understand where problems will occur and resolve them before they happen.

In states where new sustainability programs are in effect, we may see an increase in the use of these software solutions. For example, in New York State, the Climate Mobilization Act requires a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from all large buildings in New York City. These platforms will help identify where there are the greatest sustainability inefficiencies and allow teams to quickly identify goals and resolve issues.

Estimated BYOD time

We live in a world with endless personal technology. Although employees' technology may have a negative impact on the entire business network, employees will always hesitate to connect their technology to the company's WIFI.

In today's enterprise environment, so many applications rely on the cloud, so a large amount of personal technology can disrupt connectivity, reduce productivity, and pose security risks. If the business does not have enough capacity, then a large amount of personal technology may slow down the network and directly affect employee productivity.

When people who do n’t know personal skills join the network, employees may have trouble using email, accessing network folders, and completing other tasks that are critical to their work. Wireless printers may slow down, or the telephone system may fail-not even security issues are involved!

In 2020, we are likely to see stricter policies around “bring your own device” (BYOD). At the very least, if businesses allow personal devices, they will restrict them. To prevent personal devices from slowing down business activities, IT executives should shift personal technology to services that are only 2.4 GHz, while corporate activities must be at 5 GHz

Flexible IoT electronics manufacturers adopt new materials

The Internet of Things is taking off because low-cost chip integration enables manufacturers to make smart devices that are expensive. But now, as we saw at IDTechEx 2019, there is great interest in creating and mass producing flexible printed electronics that can be integrated into the growing IoT environment.

Throughout 2020, it will continue to lay the foundation for more efficient, more cost-effective, high-power printing and flexible IoT electronic products, and guarantee investment in the development of these technologies.

In order to make these technologies as reliable and efficient as existing IoT devices, flexible electronic devices for OLED, IoT sensors, and batteries require complex processes in addition to discrete devices on the substrate, involving applications of circuits, logic, and memory. Current processes involve multiple application steps at high temperatures, with the risk of damaging the substrate.

Throughout 2020 and beyond, we want to see flexible IoT electronics manufacturers adopt new materials, including liquid silicones called cyclohexylsilane (CHS), which can be used in comparison with traditional materials. Processing at lower temperatures makes it an effective alternative to the manufacture of silicon dielectrics. The next generation of flexible electronics.

Greater collaboration between manufacturers and standards leaders

In 2020, as the Internet of Things transforms into new equipment around smart living, we will see a new level of industry cooperation. As a market, we only see the tip of the iceberg in terms of possibilities. Now that consumers are getting involved in devices, but are still waiting for the process of connecting products to become easier, they can safely secure themselves and add value without making life harder.

The IoT will start to take off as we address the obstacles that have so far hindered incompatibility, and we are about to remove them.

Next year will be another period for manufacturers and standards leaders to continue exploring the best path, and then we will see the gates open in 2021, because when paired and shared, everything is "normal".
