Sector-wise Implementation of IoT

Manufacturing India is substantially engaged in advancing its industrial operations coupled with the expansion of the manufacturing sector and overcoming the challenges of human resources. Presence of government initiatives such as“Make it India” is likely to promote the domestic manufacturing sector of India. With the rising adoption of industry 4.0, the manufacturers are rapidly adopting IoT technology for smart manufacturing through smart products, smart equipment, smart maintenance, smart material, smart metric, and smart workforce.


India has a wide power and utility industry. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation, India is the third-largest producer and third-largest consumer of electricity across the globe, with the installed power capacity reaching 347.22 GW as of December 2018. The key use cases of IoT in the utilities include outage optimization, use of analytics to improve customer experience, improving brand image by using analytics, theft identification, understand customers’ demands, and reduce customer churn. 

Transportation and logistics

The connection of vehicles to the internet gives rise to a wealth of new possibilities and applications making transport safer and more convenient for users. Key applications in the transport industry by leveraging IoT include connected cars, fleet management, vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication, vehicle pooling and hiring services, and self-driving vehicles. In June 2019, Harman International, a US-based major car manufacturer had invested $47 million in connected car technologies plant expansion in Pune to triple the production of connected by 2021. The growing investment in connected car technology is anticipated to drive the growth of IoT in the transportation and logistics sector. 

Smart cities

Smart governance, smart economy, smart mobility, smart environment, smart living, and smart people among others are the key features of a smart city that can be achieved by the utility of advanced technologies such as IoT and AI. In June 2015, Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi had launched the “100 Smart Cities Mission” in the country. As per the mission, a total of $14 billion was approved by the Indian Cabinet for the development of 100 smart cities and the rejuvenation of 500 others in the country. The growing investment by the Government of India to make smart cities in India is projected to accelerate the adoption of IoT in this sector. 


There are many ways in which IoT is impacting the Indian agriculture sector. Wireless IoT sensors are capable of forecasting weather conditions, measuring hyper-local conditions of fields, and monitoring soil quality and moisture. IoT sensors enable farmers to track the state and behavior of their livestock.

Oil and gas

Conventional resource deposits exhaustion, unstable market demand, and oil price dynamics are the key challenges associated with the oil & gas sector. IoT technology facilitates in resolving these challenges by offering centralized surveillance solutions, production process prediction solutions, and refinery equipment maintenance solutions. Significant investment in the installation of the smart gas meter is anticipated to drive the growth of this industrial sector.
