How is the funding environment shaping up for internet of things in 2019? As we pass the mid-year mark, let’s see how the year-to-date metrics compare to the historical trends. The graph below shows IoT total funding by year, stacked by quarters.
As the graphic demonstrates, IoT has amassed $8.5B through Q1 and Q2 of this year. This amount represents 32% of the total funding in 2018, and 149% of the funding through Q2 in 2018. The top three funding events in Q2 2019 include a $1.7B round into Infineon Technologies, a $420M round into PAX Labs, and a $280M round into Magic Leap.
A straight-line projection of the completed funding this year would result in $16.9B, which is 64% of the total 2018 funding. On the other hand, a weighted quarterly average projection of 2019 funding would result in $39.3B, which exceeds the total 2018 funding by 49%. Therefore, based on the mid-year data and leaning towards the straight-line projection, we expect 2019 to fall somewhat from the 2018 total.
