According to a November survey from Accenture, nearly two-thirds of internet users worldwide said that one of the barriers to purchasing IoT devices and services were the fact that they are too expensive.

The uncertainty about which device would be of use to them, as well as the confusion around these IoT devices more generally, were other barriers to purchase.
