A simple explanation of the Internet of Things or the IoT would be the ability to connect any device to the Internet through sensors. The Internet of Things is a sprawling network of physical objects equipped with software, electronics, sensors, and network connectivity to enable the objects to gather and exchange data. With the growth of the Internet of Things, the demand for sensors has also accelerated in recent years. 

Industrialization Augments IoT Sensors Market
The sudden surge in the demand for IoT sensors is attributable to the burgeoning automotive industry and the proliferating industrial Internet of Things market. The IoT sensors market is also being driven by the rising demand for consumer electronics and the skyrocketing penetration of smart devices. As smart devices hold a major share in the global consumer electronics market, the demand for the devices is augmenting the global IoT sensors market as well. 

Smart Cities Create Conducive Ground for Growth of IoT Sensors Market
Besides smartphones, analysts predict that the demand for smart gas, electricity, and water meters is also likely to grow in the coming few years. As a result, the global Internet of Things market will record soaring profits in the next few years.
