This trend streamlines processes, enhances efficiency, and reduces reliance on intermediaries in IoT ecosystems, which is anticipated to further augment the market growth over the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on various sectors, affecting both individuals and corporations. The internet ecosystem has played a critical role globally, as reliance on internet-based enterprises has increased due to the pandemic. Industries, such as BFSI, healthcare & life sciences, manufacturing, automotive, retail, transportation, and logistics, have increasingly embraced the Internet to provide essential services to their customers. However, suppliers have experienced a decrease in demand, mainly due to the global shutdown affecting the availability of specific hardware components required for implementing blockchain IoT systems.

Looking ahead, the healthcare and government sectors are expected to moderately adopt IoT sensors and blockchain technology to enhance the protection of hospitals, government buildings, and populations during future epidemics. Moreover, the growing trend of leveraging blockchain technology globally with the help of collaboration between state-backed initiatives and digital service providers is expected to propel market growth. For instance, in November 2022, China's Xinghuo Blockchain Infrastructure and Facility, a state-backed initiative, collaborated with MY EG, Services Berhad (MyEG), a Malaysian digital service provider, to establish and operate an "International Supernode". This partnership reflects Beijing's ongoing efforts to extend its global influence in the blockchain domain. Such strategies by key players are expected to fuel market growth.

Component Insights

On the basis of components, the global market has been further categorized into hardware, software & platform, and services. The hardware component segment is expected to register a significant CAGR of 56.6% over the forecast period. The growth of the segment is attributed to the rising implementation of IoT devices in numerous industries, which include industrial automation, smart homes, smart cities, and healthcare.

The segment growth is also driven by the high demand for specialized hardware that can support and optimize diverse IoT applications' connectivity and data management requirements. The software and platform component segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 51.6% in 2022. This can be attributed to the need for enhanced security and data integrity. Moreover, the growing need for transparency and traceability in supply chains is expected to augment the demand for software and platform segment over the forecast period.

Vertical Insights

The transportation & logistics segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 21.8% in 2022 and is expected to continue the same trend over the forecast period. The growth is attributed to its properties in creating transparent and immutable records of transactions and events within the transportation and logistics ecosystem. Furthermore, with the help of up-to-date and accurate information related to inventory status, the companies associated with transportation & logistics can improve their efficiency in operations. These properties are expected to drive segment growth during the forecast period.

The healthcare segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 61.6% over the forecast period. The growth of the healthcare segment is attributed to the ability of the solutions to track and trace pharmaceutical products across the supply chain effectively. This capability ensures the authenticity and origin of drugs, leading to the mitigation of counterfeit drug issues, minimizing the risk of medication errors, and ultimately enhancing patient safety, which is anticipated to boost the healthcare segment's growth.

Organization Size Insights

The small- & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 60.2% in 2022 and is expected to continue the same trend over the forecast period. The growth of the segment is attributed to the implementation of solutions to help SMEs meet regulatory compliance requirements. Blockchain technology's transparent and auditable nature enables SMEs to maintain accurate records, ensure data privacy, and demonstrate compliance with industry regulations, which is expected to boost segment growth over the forecast period.

The large enterprises segment is expected to grow at a considerable CAGR of 57.8% over the forecast period owing to the growing need for enhanced security, efficiency, transparency, and traceability, among others. Similarly, the blockchain IoT provides a decentralized and transparent ledger that ensures secure storage and sharing of data among authorized participants. This enhances data integrity and empowers large enterprises to make more informed and data-driven decisions. Such properties are expected to drive segment growth over the forecast period.

Application Insights
