IoT -- SmartCity + Industrial = 78% of IoT revenue even in 2019

Thank you Junko for taking time to discuss IC Insights IoT forecast revision.

What you have perhaps missed is another unique and consistent part of IC Insights IoT analyses.

  -- Unlike most other market researchers who focus on Consumer, Smart Home and similar IoT segments, IC Insights key insight is that so far dominant IoT market is elsewhere

   -- In Industrial and SmartCity IoT segments (SmartCiti being a mixture of Industrial, Enterprise and Government IoT segments)

Even by 2019 IC Insights still forecasts, correctly in my opinion, that Industrial and SmartCiti segments will account for -- 78% of total IoT market / revenues

  -- Note in connection with that the rapid urbanization of global population - by 2050 two thirds of Earth population will live in cities.

While many market researchers are trying to find where all the IoT revenues are "hidding" -- so far most of it is in revenues of Industrial IC vendor revenues.

  -- Since up to 50% of their revenue is sold via distributors to often up to 70K customers - even Industrial IC vendors don't know how much of their products end-up in highly fragmented IoT applications.

That is of course now rapidly changing with introduction of new generation of IoT-tailored products...

Once again, thank you for all your wonderful articles and -- my compliments to outstanding IC Insights's team
