The Internet of Things (IoT) is having a major impact on how businesses and individuals interact, and has the potential to revolutionize communication. Many countries are striving to become the leader in the field of IoT, so which one is the top in this area?
To determine the best country in IoT, we must look at the amount of investment each country has made, the number of patents filed, and the number of startups, accelerators, and incubators dedicated to the development of IoT technology. In terms of investment, the United States is at the top with over $20 billion invested in R&D since 2010. China follows with $15 billion, while the UK, Japan, India, and South Korea have all made significant investments. In terms of patents, the US has filed over 8,000, while China has 6,000 and the UK, Japan, India, and South Korea all have over 1,000 each. Lastly, the US is the clear leader in startups, accelerators, and incubators, with over 500 dedicated to the development of IoT technology.
All these factors point to the US being the top country in the world for IoT. The country has made major investments in research and development, filed thousands of patents, and has a wide variety of startups, accelerators, and incubators dedicated to the development of IoT technology.
