If You Miss This Tech Trend Now You Might Be KICKING Yourself Later

Slide 1

Have you heard of the Internet of Things?

Slide 2

It’s a buzzword in the tech industry right now.

Slide 3

But it’s much more than just a passing trend.

Slide 4

The Internet of Things (IoT) will connect formerly unconnected things to the Internet — like cars, appliances and manufacturing equipment…

Slide 5

So that they can collect and analyze data, and automate systems.

Slide 6

And the number of IoT connections is about to explode.

Slide 7

See for yourself…

Slide 8

Source: Cisco. Here we are!

Slide 9

Nearly 50 billion things will be connected to the Internet over the next five years.

Slide 10

And all of those connections are going to generate a lot of money for companies.

Slide 11

According to IDC, the Internet of Things market will be worth $7.1 trillion by 2020.

Slide 12

Yes, trillion.

Slide 13

The potential market size is so big because the IoT will increase efficiencies across many sectors.

Slide 14

For example, General Electric says that using the IoT to increase oil and gas exploration by just 1% would result in $90 billion in savings.

Slide 15

But it’s not just companies that are warming to the IoT.

Slide 16

Consumers are adopting the Internet of Things — even if they don’t know what it is.

Slide 17

Wearable technology, connected homes and Internet-connected vehicles are all part of the Internet of Things.

Slide 18

Right now, just 7% of consumers own a wearable tech device.

Slide 19

But by the end of next year, that number will likely jump to 28%.

Slide 20

And by 2019, companies are projected to ship 1.9 billion connected home devices per year.

Slide 21

So what’s the point of all these statistics?

Slide 22

The Internet of Things is still in its infancy.

Slide 23

Even if a handful of these predictions prove true…

Slide 24

Then the IoT will be a revolutionary change to how companies do business and how consumers use technology.

Slide 25

And there’s still time for investors to get in on the IoT ground floor.

Slide 26

Or, you can miss out and kick yourself later for not giving the IoT a second look.

Slide 27

But we wouldn’t want that.
