IoT in Italy at 8 billion


"The pandemic we have experienced since 2020 has made us aware of the urgency of riding the wave of digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution" comment the analysts of GreenVulcano Technologies, a company that has been accredited for years as a B2B player in the sectors of Smart mobility, Smart Infrastructures and Industry 4.0, as well as one of the most active research and experimentation laboratories of made in Italy hi-tech in various sectors.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a container of many application areas that, put together, in 2021 in Italy total a value of 8 billion euros and the pandemic has accelerated the process, predicts GreenVulcano Technologies based on the research conducted by the Observatory Internet of Things of the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano.

«Grasping this impulse and making it ours, within a new industrial policy that will govern the future of the country , is undoubtedly essential. Not surprisingly, the incentives provided by the National Transition Plan 4.0, replacing the previous Enterprise 4.0 and Industry 4.0, can play a fundamental role, moving the market and addressing a new industrial policy " explain the experts of GreenVulcano Technologies, who precisely on on this topic they organized a webinar with free participation on LinkedIn at the url

And it is precisely within this ecosystem that the solutions offered by GreenVulcano Technologies are inserted, a company that has been accredited for years as a B2B player behind the scenes of the major smart mobility companies , as well as one of the most active research and experimentation laboratories of Made in Italy. Italy hi-tech in different sectors, able to support all phases of a Transition 4.0 project : from finding resources to defining the implementation project, up to the reporting of expenses.

The main developments, in terms of national turnover , are expected in the area of Smart asset management (metering and asset management in utilities), with a value of 2 billion euros in 2021, which represents 25% of the total; of Smart cars, with a turnover of 1.6 billion euros, 20% of the total (half of the car fleet in circulation in Italy is already connected); and - on equal merit - Smart City and Smart Building, both areas with a turnover of 1 billion euros each, 12% of the total.

These 4 areas, alone, correspond to 69% of the total. The values were projected to 2021 by GreenVulcano Technologie s based on the research conducted by the Internet of Things Observatory of the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano, according to which, however, Smart Agriculture is the sector that recorded the greatest growth in 2020 (17 %), more than double the growth in the Smart City area (8%).

On the other hand, the Smart Home area is slightly down with a turnover of 505 million euros in 2020 (Politecnico di Milano figure) and a forecast of 800 million for 2021 (GreenVulcano Technologies projection).

Finally, Smart solutions for the factory and Smart for logistics are up by 10% and 4% respectively: "the most interesting applications are those related to factory management that allow real-time monitoring of energy consumption and production » point out the experts of GreenVulcano Technologies.

"One of the most important changes of the last 10 years and probably also of the next 10 years - continue the experts - is the pervasiveness of enormous amounts of data , central to the profound transformation that the industry is experiencing with the digital revolution".

Among the most widespread technologies within this ecosystem, the Internet of Things (IoT) is playing an increasingly important role: today we are talking about the Industrial Internet of Things (I-IoT), thanks to the application and presence in the various sectors and industrial processes of IoT sensors, which provide data in greater quantities and at a deeper level of detail.

But not only. " Cognitive technologies , artificial intelligence , machine learning and deep learning are increasing the ability of intelligent machines to perform automatic analysis and act autonomously," add GreenVulcano Technologies experts.

In Italy, the Industrial Internet of Things (I-IoT) is growing rapidly, although the path is still in its infancy : in fact, it is necessary to intervene in the digital transformation of small businesses, which must find the right interpretation for the adoption of I-IoT solutions in the various fields of use.

GreenVulcano Technologies I-IoT platform can be logically divided into 2 areas: edge and core. The first includes all the components that make the connection to the machinery and, in general, to all the objects to be monitored in the IoT world: from sensors to production line trolleys; the second, on the other hand, includes all the centralized components of the platform, the locus where the data taken from the monitored objects are stored and analyzed.

" True innovation , the one that heavily affects in terms of competitiveness on global markets, is given by a model characterized by a hybrid identity , capable of including the know-how linked to the innovation of plants and processes to that of industrial analytics, aimed at the best production performance » concludes Gaetano Rossi, vice president and general manager of GreenVulcano Technologies.

Add to this the extraordinary ability of GreenVulcano Technologies to manage a huge amount of raw data and turn it into value. A capacity that can strongly contribute to the possibility of offering a "disruptive innovation" to accompany companies towards new markets , new sectors , new business models and new forms of revenues in the context of the opportunities offered by the Transition 4.0 plan within the Next Generation EU.
