IoT Developer Population Forecast 2018
This report provides data and insights into trends that allow you to estimate the addressable market for Internet of Things technologies, in terms of the number of developers using such technology. We split IoT developers by their professional involvement, involvement in developing hardware or firmware, vertical market, level of influence in purchasing decisions, geography, as well as their use of programming languages and specific IoT technologies.
AR/VR Hardware and Software Trends
In this report, we look at which AR and VR platforms developers have currently adopted as of Q2 2017, as well as which platforms they expect to adopt in 2018. We also asked them how fast they expect the hardware market to develop. That is to say, how quickly do they think that the currently dominant smartphone viewers will be replaced by dedicated, untethered headsets. We look at these issues for Augmented and Virtual Reality separately, as well as for professional developers in each space separately.
