In this study, we provide our Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) forecast for all 13 countries (the "region") as subsequent work to our study in 2018 where we investigated connectivity growth in four APEJ markets (see Internet of Things Connectivity Forecast and Analysis in Four Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Markets: Australia, New Zealand, People's Republic of China, and Singapore, IDC #AP42888318, May 2018). Each market within the region has different demographics in terms of population density, land area, natural resources, the role of manufacturing and resource industries, geography, technology preparedness, and economic environment. The collection of key demographic indicators such as broadband household penetration, the number of firms in each major industry, and so on varies considerably from market to market in this study.

"IoT in the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) markets studied continues to grow steadily as government, municipalities, and enterprises take advantage of extensive fiber and 4G LTE coverage to execute IoT strategies that enhance productivity and efficiency, build Smart City infrastructure, and capitalize on new technologies, such as software-defined networking and automation, Long-Term Evolution (LTE) NB-IoT and LTE Cat-M1, 5G New Radio, and next-generation industrial automation," says Bill Rojas, adjunct research director, IDC Asia/Pacific. "We are still in the early stages of IoT adoption and ecosystem development in APEJ, with industrial IoT, agriculture and resources, telematics, smart grids, smart buildings, smart homes, and consumer wearables leading the way in terms of adoption and use case investment," he adds.
