Accelerating the Adoption of Industrial Internet of Things.


As of 2016, a total of 64 transformation projects (or more) have been under way since the initiation of Made in China 2025 by Premier Li Keqiang in 2015, aiming to position China as the global manufacturing quality leader.

Being in the scene, IoT ONE has put together a progress analysis and opportunity overview of the Industrial IoT market in China.

Industrial IoT Market Potential in China

"An important step in the future IoT ecosystem development in China will be accelerating the shift from market fragmentation to market integration, and from vertical industry convergence to horizontal platform agglomeration."
- Antonio Liu, Senior Market Analyst, IDC China

Key insights:

  1. IoT in China will deliver gains of between USD 540 billion and USD 1.8 trillion in cumulative GDP growth by 2030, with manufacturing contributing approximately 40% of the growth potential.
  2. Market advisory IDC estimates that Chinese manufacturer spending on industrial IoT will grow at an average rate of 14.7% annual and will reach USD 128 billion by 2020.

Why now?

China's global manufacturing output has skyrocketed from less than 4% in the 1990s to more than 25% now. However, its manufacturing sector has exhausted growth strategies of the last three decades. Today China has saturated the market for low quality and low cost goods, and many industries are overcapitalized yet inefficient due to limited adoption of industrial software. To overcome these challenges, an industry wide move towards digitalization and industrial automation has been prioritized by the national government. China must increase both productivity and output quality.


Industrial IoT in China: Current Climate and Future Trends

Key insights:

  1. Many Chinese manufacturers have yet to begin investing in Industry 4.0 technology, and many continue to use Industry 2.0 technologies.
  2. The Chinese government has recognized and implemented strategic measures that aim to boost development of smart capabilites.
  3. China experiences rapid growth in technological innovation and acquisition of foreign companies. Innovation activities are more intensive for traditional hardware whereas that of cloud computing, big data and advanced robotics are relatively weaker.
