Internet of Things (IoT) describes the network of physical objects that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies for the purpose of connecting and exchanging data with other devices and systems over the internet. These devices range from ordinary household objects to sophisticated industrial tools. Over the past few years, IoT has become one of the most important technologies across the globe. IoT devices share the data that is collected by IoT sensors or other edge devices where data is sent to cloud server to be analyzed. These devices further communicate with other related devices and act on the information they get from one another. These devices do most of their work without human intervention, although people can interact with these devices.

Use of IoT in the retail industry is closely related to GPS and RFID technologies that help brands track products throughout the entire supply chain process. It gives retailers visibility they need to track product movement, conditions, and track location, as well as predict an exact delivery time.

Retailers are using IoT technology to improve customer experience, reduce costs, drive growth, and improve the overall performance. IoT sensors connected to a device allow retailers to collect customer feedback after the shopping experience. This data provides real-time customer satisfaction insights that can improve in-store customer experience. Use of IoT sensors by retailers monitors goods throughout the whole supply chain. Retailers are using IoT technology to keep track of lost shopping carts and baskets. Tracking these assets can help stores lower the cost of having to replace them. By placing sensors on assets, such as shopping carts and baskets, retailers will be able to track them to their exact location and receive status updates and alerts whether or not they are damaged.

Factors such as effective store space monitoring, inventory management, supply chain management, and customer behavior monitoring drive demand for internet of things (IoT) in the retail market.  Moreover, optimizing and automating the supply chain is one of the main factors for IoT adoption among retailers. Connectivity technologies, including digital signage, top-of-the-shelf displays, beacons, and price displays, provide opportunities for a brand to access large volumes of data on customer activity during in-store shopping.

However, data security & privacy concerns and high implementation & maintenance cost of IoT devices restrain growth of the market globally. On the contrary, reduction in cost of connected devices and IoT traction among SMEs is expected to create lucrative opportunities for expansion of the IoT in retail market globally.
