The Internet of Things (IoT) has been progressing on a fast track owing to emerging technologies and infrastructure developments. Most electrical devices are getting connected, whether it is a fridge at home or a printer in the office. It is helping in developing an ecosystem for blockchain IoT market.
The upcoming 5G deployment is going to accelerate IoT growth. The 5G deployment has already been started this year on a trial basis in selected areas. Indeed, faster data transmission will play a key role in helping IoT. However, one of the key growing concerns is around IoT network security. Therefore, some of the key areas that need to be addressed include a wide range of interconnectivity, the security of communication and safety of data backup.
In the IoT ecosystem, hardware and software need to be secured at the same time. Both platforms and applications providers have been trying to make sure that their ecosystems are fully secure. A number of provisions have been maintained for that purpose. Recently blockchain has started emerging a key technology which can be used for various functions including network security. All major IoT platform providers have already started R&D on blockchain technology for further exploration.
The blockchain technology is still in a nascent stage, and the development work is going on for various industries and various applications. Most of the development work is at a pilot stage and will require time for deployments. The implementation of blockchain is expected to revolutionise the IoT industry by making it more secure and safe.
Some of the potential areas include asset tracking and supply chain, smart building, insurance, inventory management, and connected cars. Meanwhile, DreamzIoT, Ambrosus and Modum are working on asset tracking and supply chain while Concentric and Hdac formed a partnership to work together on the development of smart building through IoT and blockchain. PICC (People’s Insurance Company of China) is working on insurance and Filament is working on the development of connected cars. Some companies such as IBM Watson, Waltonchain, Weeve, NetObjex, Viant and VeChain are providing platforms services to businesses.

The researchers have used a broad range of primary and secondary data to assess the market for the mobile market in terms of subscribers and technological splits. The starting point of their research was employing a literature review and extensive market research where they used a number of external sources, for instance, government bodies, national and international industry associations, company reports and data, market stakeholders’ opinions, industry news, policy documents, government bodies, etc.
The publisher has then incorporated all their market assessment data into the publisher's proprietary detailed model which encompassed the whole country’s mobile market. The publisher has developed numerous validation tools that continuously crossed checked the robustness of their market assessment and to identify any anomalies.
For their market forecasts, the publisher has developed a forecast model that was underpinned by an econometric model. The publisher has considered a number of variables in the publisher's forecasts including GDP, Population, GDP per capita income, CPI, etc. In the forecast, they have also used SWOT analysis to understand the impact of various factors influencing the growth of the mobile industry.
Both their historical and forecast data have also been crossed checked by socio-economic approach (considering variables such as population, macroeconomic conditions, cost of having connection/handset) and bottom-up approach (collating and analyzing industry variables such as a number of connections, cell phone/smartphones numbers, mobile internet, etc).
The mobile internet segment is specifically showing those connections which are used in non-mobile devices such as mobile dongles, mobile tablets, etc, used mainly to get connected to the internet. The researchers assume that these connections will not be able to make calls.
The researchers assume that 5G service will start at the end of 2021, though the relative market share will remain relatively lower.
The publisher expects that growth in mobile phone connection will be on a downward trajectory at the start of the forecast period for various reasons including a slowdown in demand for pre-paid connections, market saturation, increased interaction through mobile application and internet calls.
Aims of the study:
- A robust assessment and forecasts of a country’s mobile market.
- To make an accurate and realistic market assessment and forecasts of the number of total mobile subscribers, mobile connections splits, Mobile Internet connections, smartphones holders, etc
- Identify major drivers and restraints and their implications for the industry.
- Competitor landscape in a country’s mobile market
- The country regulatory landscape
