Acuity releases our 2018 M&A Market Review of the Industrial Internet of Things (“IIoT”) sector
In the next 10 to 15 years, the Industrial Internet of Things will continue to dramatically alter the transportation, automotive, industrial, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, smart cities and smart buildings sectors, accounting for almost two-thirds of the global economy.
Acquiring IIoT capacities has become a strategic priority for both global technology and wider industrial players driven by technology capability, new market access and buying into digital technologies that are transforming the wider industrial landscape. Acuity’s leading track record in the sector has enabled us to capture key insights as the M&A landscape continues to evolve.
Acuity’s 2018 IIoT Market Review provides an overview of key themes within the industry over 2018 and is broken down into the following three sections:
- Market Dynamics – analysis of key drivers impacting the IIoT sector plus trading comparables and statistics for each subsector (Automotive, Healthcare, Industrials, Smart Buildings, Smart City and Transportation)
- Transaction Analysis – analysis of global mid-market transaction by value, volume and geography plus specifics of noteworthy mid-market IIoT transactions in 2018
