According to the report, produced by analysts at 451 Research, 90% expect to increase IoT spending over the next year.
Its latest study consisted of 1,000 enterprise IT buyers from around the world, and found that businesses were pushing ahead with IoT initiatives and spending.
Those with initiatives already expected to increase their spending by 33% over the next 12 months.
The statistics found that 68% of enterprises were taking advantage of IoT data for operational optimisation and 42% to develop new products or enhance existing ones.
