In fact, most IoT applications right now are already happening in the areas of Industry. For instance, several companies are actively drawing on the technological advances that power the Industry 4.0 approach like autonomous robots, big data and analytics, augmented reality, additive manufacturing, cloud and cyber security.

In Industry, automation is very hot. It enables manufacturers to produce more products around the clock with less paid workers and companies love this as it helps to bring profits up. The workforce on the ground level is not being eliminated without some human replacement. Systems architects, data scientists, and other jobs are being created to build these complex industrial applications.
