IOT: The Top 4 Trends for 2023

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a trending term of this decade that describes the robustly growing networks of physical objects that are online, connected, and capable of communicating to share data with each other.PC’s and thereafter the era of smartphones has taken the internet at our fingertips. Over the past decade, we are surrounded by smart TVs, wifi enabled smart kitchen appliances such as kettles and fridges, smart alarm systems, cameras, and even lightbulbs. Alongside humans have become quite used to driving smart cars, and even living in smart cities. There shall be more than 43 billion devices connected to the internet by 2023, which shall be generating, sharing, collecting, and helping us to use data where ever possible. So, an overview of few of the key trends that might affect how we handle such devices during the coming year.

  • Enterprise Metaverse And Digital Twins

The two major technological developments have come together at this time, defining how technology will be beneficial to all industries in 2023. The bridging of the gap between the real and virtual worlds is one of the sought-after applications of the metaverse. With the help of the data from IoT sensors, it is quite possible to build realistic digital twins of varied different systems right from production facilities to shopping complexes. With experiential metaverse tech systems like VR headsets which give a better understanding of their work modes, one can step into this world. We are already embracing the applications of this tech convergence for the retail domain, where store planners are able to monitor footfall in real-time and accordingly make adjustments for displays and enhancing promotions so that they can monitor how this impacts customer behavior and, in turn, revenue generation. In industrial space, this tech allows the manufacturing plants to experiment with varied machinery configurations, and to highlight potential safety issues so that they can easily predict when the breakdown might take place.

  • IoT Security

With the introduction of IoT and widespread use of its technology, lives have become simple and hassle-free. But just as every coin has two sides, so does the Internet of Things. To put it simply, the more linked a gadget is, the more potential entry points there are for cyberattackers. Businesses, device manufacturers, and security experts will intensify their efforts to fend off “malicious actors” as the number of devices increases in 2023, reducing the likelihood that they will obtain any vital information. By 2023, the White House National Security Council of the United States intends to have standardised security labelling in place for producers of consumer IoT devices.

  • Internet of Things in Healthcare

For IoT, this domain has unbundled a plethora of opportunities, and the value of the market for IoT-enabled health devices is targeted to touch $267 billion by 2023.

The use of wearables and in-home sensors by healthcare practitioners to keep an eye on patients outside of the hospital or doctor’s office is one of the biggest game changers. This will allow for round-the-clock care and free up important resources for patients who are in urgent need. By 2023, most of us will be familiar with the concept of a “virtual hospital ward,” where physicians would supervise the monitoring and care of their patients in their homes with the use of sensors and telemedicine. There are various wearables and IoT-enabled devices on the market today that can give users improved insights into their personal health and fitness.

  • Regulation And Governance In The IoT Sector

EU is expected to float its legislation requiring producers and operators of smart devices to follow stricter rules in 2023. Rules as in how the data can be collected, its storage in the cloud, and fraud management. This was just one pie of the cake of the new legislation that we can expect to be implemented globally. This indicates 2023 will be the time that governments will start gripping the legal ramifications of an ever-expanding IoT. Issues such as edge computing, centralized cloud servers, and data processing shall also be analyzed. Whereas in Asia, 2023 shall mark the culmination of a three-year plan by the Chinese government to put policies in place which shall allow the widespread usage of IoT tech globally. In China, the IoT has the potential to drive exponential business growth, but there is an understanding that it needs to be grown in a managed way to avoid potential clashes with privacy issues and personal rights.
