IoT Readiness of Manufacturing in Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan)
This Market Note discusses IDC's insights on Internet of Things (IoT) readiness in the manufacturing sector. Last year, IDC Asia/Pacific conducted an IoT readiness study across 13 countries in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) region. This study offers a deep dive that highlights the nations that are IoT-ready in the manufacturing sector across this region.
"Singapore leads the way for IoT readiness in the manufacturing sector for the APEJ region, driven by its strong government thrust and robust FDI inflow for technology initiatives," says Hugh Ujhazy, associate vice president for Internet of Things, IDC Asia/Pacific. "Knowing where a country stands in the manufacturing loT index will help global and local IT vendors know what opportunities lie ahead of them, challenges faced, and optimum vendor partnerships worth considering for end-user organizations."
"Across APEJ, nations display a high aptitude in the areas of innovation, technological capabilities, and ease of doing business along with strong commitment for IoT deployments in manufacturing plants across multiple use cases," says Shaily Shah, research manager for Internet of Things, IDC Asia/Pacific.
