China Poised to Dominate the World’s Industrial Market for IOT

Date : 10-24-2018

According to New GSMA Report

According to a study conducted by the GSMA (Global System for Mobile Communications Association), by the year 2025, there is predicted to be almost 14 billion industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connections in existence, with a full ⅓ of that being attributed to China.

The report itself is based on intelligence gleaned from interviews conducted with the Far East’s major mobile operators Taiwan Mobile, China Mobile, Asia Pacific Telecom Group and  China Telecom. This data contained detailed information how artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics and super fast internet speeds are set to revolutionise the industrial sector in the region.

GSMA’s chief technology officer, Alex Sinclair stated that the new and emerging technologies in the field are going to fundamentally change the way our lives work, connecting almost every electronic device together intelligently – making the cities we live in smarter and the lives we live easier.

He also stated that China is putting a particularly large focus on the ability of IIot to improve efficiency and increase productivity, something that is to be achieved by employing internet connected automated processes in manufacturing. The very fact that the plan is fully backed by the Chinese government and its considerable resources is the primary reason for China’s expected domination of the sector.

The Strategy

China’s intention to invest in IIoT in a big way was outlined in their 2015 strategy document “Made in China 2025”, which set out to encourage innovation in manufacturing and transform the country into a powerhouse within a decade. This was released in tandem with their internet infrastructure vision “Internet Plus Action Plan”, which proposed a much greater integration of big data, cloud computing, mobile internet and IoT into its existing manufacturing network.

Mobile Operator Role

The mobile operators in China are going to play a pivotal role in the country’s tech transformation, as they will be required to provide reliable, intelligent and secure connectivity to businesses throughout the country. They will also be heavily involved in IIoT technology development in the sector, providing vital assistance to industry, governments and municipal organisations.

Connected China

If further indication were needed that China’s tech infrastructure ambitions are on a grand scale, then it was evidenced by the ‘Connected China’ part of the 2018 Mobile World Congress in Shanghai held in June. The message sent out was one that’s aligned with GSMA’s own IoT program that aims to bring together the most forward thinking developers and innovative businesses to highlight what is possible using cutting edge IoT solutions in the coming years.

With a global explosion in all things IoT expected in the near future, the role of the GSMA in assisting not just China’s but the rest of the world’s efforts to realise the potential of Smart Cities and Smart Industry, is going to be an important one. How quickly we get to the promised land of a fully functioning, automated world is anyone’s guess, but with China seemingly driving hard to make it happen, it might just be sooner, rather than late
