How Big a Market Will Internet of Things Be, for Mobile Service Providers?


Whether the revenue implications will be so large, despite the billions of connections, remains the issue. Some think $1.2 trillion will be earned, collectively, by about 2022, by all participants in the Internet of Things ecosystem.

Such forecasts are not granular enough to be of practical help to most participants, but it might be reasonable to assume that perhaps 10 percent of that total revenue might represent access fees.

Even by that measure, mobile service providers might earn $100 billion in 2022, a large enough number to warrant serious effort.
