China is Leading the World in the Internet of Things

Slide 1

The Internet of Things (or, IoT) is the connection of formerly unconnected ‘things’ to the Internet…

Slide 2

Which will enable cars, industrial equipment, homes, etc. to collect and analyze data, and even automate processes.

Slide 3

And according to research by GSMA, no country implements IoT technologies better than China.

Slide 4

Last year, the country had 74 million machine-to-machine (M2M) connections. Source: GSMA.

Slide 5

While the U.S. has under 50 million M2M connections right now.

Slide 6

And China’s expected to boost its amount of connected things to 336 million by 2020.

Slide 7

Meanwhile, the U.S. will probably have just over 150 million by the same time.

Slide 10

But how is China leading the world?

Slide 11

There are few reasons, but the main one is simply the power of the Chinese government.

Slide 12

Back in 2010, the government set up a national IoT Center.

Slide 13

And set a goal to build the country’s IoT technologies into a $163 billion market by 2020.

Slide 14

To do that, the government set up IoT standards in 2013, and then integrated new tech into smart cities in 2014.

Slide 15

“Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hangzhou and other large cities have established extensive database and sensor networks to collect, store, and analyse information related to transportation, electricity, public safety, and environmental factors.” - GSMA Intelligence

Slide 16

Of course, the private sector is helping to make all of this possible too.

Slide 17

Specifically, the country’s leading wireless carriers — China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom — are connecting China to the IoT.

Slide 18

“Chinese operators are developing sophisticated M2M service propositions that go far beyond the provision of basic connectivity.” - Sylwia Kechiche GSMA Intelligence

Slide 19

China Mobile helped develop a national IoT platform, sells its own M2M services, and even started an Internet of Vehicles company.

Slide 20

Similarly, China Telecom is building services for connected homes and vehicles, and has its own center focused on M2M.

Slide 21

And China Unicom is focusing much of its attention on connected home services and consumer-oriented IoT products.

Slide 22

China’s IoT expansion also benefits from the country’s large population.

Slide 23

“China offers economies of scale for IoT unmatched by any other single country.” - Josh Builta IHS Technology

Slide 24

And the country’s past economic growth enabled China to build out IoT systems quickly.

Slide 25

Because of its early lead in IoT, even China’s current economic worries shouldn't hurt the country’s IoT dominance.

Slide 26

But that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from the Internet of Things too.
