The Next Growth Engine To Enable Digital Transformation Across Enterprises

In recent years, India has been moving towards becoming a digital economy. The digital space in India has seen a lot of transformation and the Internet of Things (IoT) is a recent phenomenon. The growing adoption of Cloud in IoT services, shifting of focus to industrial IoT (IIoT), the rising market of M2M communication, and the increasing trend of wearable technology applications are among the major factors driving the IoT market in India.

Growth in the market is anticipated on account of the ongoing technological developments in IoT technology for providing better connectivity and coverage as well as real-time monitoring and tracking of services and systems across diverse industry verticals to reduce operational and manpower costs. Moreover, various government projects such as smart cities, smart transportation, smart grids, and so on are also expected to further propel the use of IoT technology in the country over the next five years. In the IoT landscape, the number of connected devices has also been increasing at a tremendous rate over the last few years. Various companies across India have realized that they can use data to optimize costs, deliver better services, and boost revenues.

The overall enterprise IoT market is forecast to grow at a healthy pace for the period FY2016-FY2022. Telcos will have a critical role to play in this value chain. Moreover, considering the highly competitive telecom market scenario in India today, IoT will provide telcos with high growth opportunities along with new avenues for revenue. Telecom participants will need to up their game and move beyond connectivity to play a larger role in this IoT wave to capture the growing market and bring in a transformation in their traditional business model. Partnerships, developing platforms, providing enhanced services, and adopting a consultative approach to enterprises for embracing IoT should be the focus areas for the communication service providers to cash in on the IoT opportunity effectively.
