China Leads Global Connected Living Market With Over 50 Million M2M Connections, Finds New GSMA Report

|June 9, 2014 02:00 AM EDT
China is the global leader in the adoption of M2M technology with over
50 million connections or more than one quarter of the total M2M market
in 2013, according to “How China is Set for Global M2M Leadership”, a
new report issued today by the GSMA. Close collaboration between the
country’s leading mobile operators China Mobile, China Unicom and China
Telecom, state-owned enterprises and the government has enabled the
market to grow dramatically in a relatively short period of time, laying
the foundations for further expansion and the development of the
Internet of Things (IoT).
“China is a rapidly developing country that is investing in
communications technologies that will make its cities smarter and
provide a better quality of life for its citizens,” said Alex Sinclair,
Chief Technology Officer, GSMA. “Proactive government support has
benefited China and its mobile operators, whereas in many global
markets, regulatory uncertainty has held back the deployment of M2M
solutions. The addressable market and the opportunity for further growth
is immense, especially when one considers the sheer number of ‘things’
such as cars or domestic appliances that could potentially be connected
Asia is the largest regional M2M market, accounting for 40 per cent of
the world’s 189 million M2M connections at the end of 2013. Asia added
55 million M2M net connections between 2010 and 2013 and China was the
primary driver of growth in the region, adding nearly 39 million M2M
connections during the period. Demand from the energy and transportation
industries has driven much of this early growth, while M2M solutions are
also gaining traction in the automotive, smart city, healthcare,
education and retail sectors.
The report also reveals that China’s leading mobile operators have
developed sophisticated M2M service propositions that go beyond the
provision of basic connectivity. These typically combine a generic
horizontal platform, designed to work across all industry sectors with
dedicated vertical platforms for specific application areas, such as
automotive or healthcare. All three Chinese operators stress the
importance of working with partners to create technological and
commercial platforms that can nurture a vibrant and innovative M2M
