India offers multiple opportunities for internet of things providers, and the country’s IoT ecosystem is expected to continue growing to offer entire new streams of revenue.
The Indian internet of things (IoT) market is forecast to reach $9.28bn by 2025, driven by pandemic-triggered changes in enterprise behaviour and verticals’ focus on automation, a new study finds.
According to Frost & Sullivan’s analysis, the expected increase from $4.98bn in 2020 is backed by strong connectivity and coverage, rising internet penetration, a surge in smart applications adoption, new business models, and government initiatives like smart city projects.
“IoT solution deployment for manufacturing industries, including automotive, energy and utilities, smart cities (government), retail, and other industries such as logistics, will drive investments for enterprise IoT products and services,” said Apalak Ghosh, associate director, information and communications technologies, Frost & Sullivan.
“Enterprises are becoming more technology-focused and increasing investments in cellular IoT to generate value from their digital transformation.”
Ghosh continued: “Use cases such as industrial automation, building automation, security, and surveillance account for the majority of the market revenue. Telcos may benefit from a share of this revenue, depending on their strategic partnerships with hardware providers and their roles in the IoT value chain.”
Indian Internet of Things (IoT) Growth Opportunities notes the country offers multiple opportunities for IoT providers, and the country’s IoT ecosystem is expected to continue growing to offer entire new streams of revenue. Market participants should focus on:
- private long-term evolution (P-LTE) for enhanced security: Indian telcos should focus on marketing the benefits of P-LTE to create awareness and approach enterprises with vertical-specific P-LTE solutions
- real-time operational intelligence for heightened risk and compliance management: IoT providers must develop hardware and applications that are interoperable and pre-integrated to offer brand agnostic IoT solutions
- visual matrix solutions for improved customer experience: IoT providers should establish partnerships with visual surveillance system original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to jointly offer in-store, live consumer analytics along with core security solutions
- IoT as a service for smart diagnostics laboratories. Starting with open source-based IoT solutions can reduce costs substantially and encourage the adoption of smart laboratories as a service.
Indian Internet of Things (IoT) Growth Opportunities is the latest addition to Frost & Sullivan’s information & communications technologies research and analyses available through the Frost & Sullivan Leadership Council, which helps organisations identify a continuous flow of growth opportunities to succeed in an unpredictable future.
