The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of devices, vehicles, buildings and other items embedded with sensors, electronics, software, and network connectivity that enable these physical objects to gather and exchange data. IoT devices are equipped with sensors which are capable of registering changes in pressure, temperature, motion, light, and sound. Generally, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and application. IoT Sensors is mainly used as building automation, automotive, consumer electronics, industrial, retail, safe & security, healthcare, power & utilities and building & home automation.

According to the report, global demand for IoT sensors market was valued at USD 4.9 billion in 2014 and is expected to generate revenue of USD 17.81 billion by end of 2020, growing at a CAGR of 24.00%between 2015 and 2020.
