Five billion things will connected by the end of 2015. This digital transformation has been instigated by a "nexus of forces."

Gartner predicts that IoT will support total services spending of $69.5 billion in 2015 and $263 billion by 2020. The consumer sector is predicted to utilize approximately 2.9 billion connected things in 2015 growing to some 13 billion in 2020.
