Original title: Gartner: total revenue of Internet of things of the government will be close to 15 billion US dollars in 2020
According to Gartner, the global government Internet of things (IOT) endpoint electronics and communications market will reach $14.7 billion in 2020, an increase of 6% over 2019.
“Novel coronavirus pneumonia has led to a reduction in expenditure,” said Kay Sharpington, chief research analyst at Gartner. However, governments around the world are still using Internet of things technology and solutions to improve citizen safety. At the same time, falling endpoint and connectivity costs make smart city initiatives more viable. ”
The biggest revenue opportunities for the government IOT market in 2020 are outdoor monitoring, street and outdoor lighting, as well as road pricing and traffic management.
Governments put public safety first
Gartner predicts that by 2021, governments around the world will deploy eight cameras per thousand urban citizens for outdoor monitoring, up from six cameras per thousand in 2019.
China is a key contributor to the growth of outdoor monitoring expenditure. China is investing in cameras using advanced image recognition technology, and will deploy 32 cameras per thousand urban citizens for outdoor monitoring by 2021, up from 27 cameras per thousand people in 2019.
By 2020, Greater China will account for 48% of electronic and communications spending, while the United States and Western Europe will account for 16% and 15% respectively.
Gartner analysts predict that worldwide, fire and police UAVs will increase from one for 58000 people to one for every 18000 people during 2019-2021.
