IoT Middleware Market
IoT Middleware Market


Global IoT Middleware Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 19% during the forecast period (2022-2028F). The global IoT middleware market is anticipated to witness an uptick with the increasing development of high-speed network technologies and the rising government investments and initiatives in projects like smart cities & automation are also fueling the market growth. IoT middleware is defined as software that acts as an interface between IoT components. It helps establish communication between IoT components. By establishing communication between IoT middleware and machine programs, machines, components, and hardware can be connected to IoT networks using IoT middleware. Furthermore, according to the GSM Association, IoT connections will reach almost 25 billion globally by 2025, up from 10.3 billion in 2018, which is further contributing to the growth of this market. Moreover, the absence of uniform IoT standards and concerns over data security and privacy are the major factors among others restraining the market growth.

Microsoft Corporation, International Business Machines Corporation, Inc., SAP SE, PTC Inc., Cisco Systems Inc., Google LLC, Hewlett Packard Enterprises, Robert Bosch GmbH, and Oracle Corporation are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
