IoT World and MtoM & Objets Connectés 2019

On March 20th and 21st, the IoT World and MtoM & Objets Connectés exhibitions took place at Paris Porte de Versailles.

Looking for IoT solutions

These shows demonstrated the proven potential and democratization of IoT solutions. More and more companies are implementing connected sensors or intelligent machine management platforms in all business sectors.

The themes discussed at these exhibitions indicate that professionals are looking for, particularly, the possibility of having a complete inventory of their equipment and materials deployed in the field, as well as their condition in real time.

Towards changes in economic models

The implementation of connected sensors and IoT solutions in traditional activities is triggering many changes. Economic models are especially changing since it is no longer a question of selling a product, but a complete service. A service that puts the user experience back at the heart of the debate.

New security needs for the IoT chain

Another issue discussed during these events is that the use of these new technologies also raises the question of the security of the entire IoT chain, from the sensor to the cloud.

It is then crucial to secure the devices on the manufacturers’ side. However, different IoT network operators such as Sigfox or LoRaWAN must also secure communications, applications and the Cloud.

A market with high growth potential

Despite the issues raised in these conferences, new innovations continue to emerge every day, seeking to better meet the needs of professionals.

It is expected that the IoT market will grow at a rate of 10% per year, reaching 35 billion units in 2030 (source: IDATE DigiWorld). This growth also applies to IoT technologies, including LPWA technologies (Sigfox, LoRa), which will grow by 16% by 2030.
