According to the most recent report from International Data Corp. (IDC), the expanding user base will propel the intelligent systems market to more than five billion units and nearly $2.4 trillion in revenue by 2017 from 3.5 billion units and $1.7 trillion in revenue this year. Intelligent systems are those enabled with high-performance microprocessors, IP connectivity and high level OS.

"Among the systems in the Internet of Everything and between the systems communicating in M2M communications, intelligent systems are the main drivers of value across the Internet and the dominant electronic systems on the IoE roadmap and in machine-to-machine (M2M) interactions," said IDC research vice president Shane Rau. "They drive a richer user experience and provide the user with relevant data to optimise the value of a transaction or workload."

In 2013, of 9.1 billion total intelligent system and traditional embedded systems, intelligent systems will represent nearly 39 per cent of units but nearly 73 per cent of $2.3 trillion in revenue. In 2017, intelligent systems will represent 46 per cent of nearly 11 billion total units and over 87 per cent of $2.7 trillion in revenue.

"Our findings clearly show that intelligent systems bring back more ROI for OEMs and supply chain vendors who invest in them," said Mario Morales, VP of IDC's semiconductors and enabling technologies research group. "The evolution of intelligent systems embodies a vision of computing that surrounds us and is adaptable and autonomous. Vendors in the intelligent ecosystem see that an inflection point is coming for this market."
