The IoT Market in Singapore

Singapore recently saw the roll-out of the Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) network by M1, one of the country’s telecommunications provider. The network, which is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia and the second in the world, is a connectivity standard backed by telcos and the GSM Association that will catalyse the progress of Singapore’s digital economy.

The project is set to be a turning point for the country’s Smart Nation initiative and digital transformation efforts as M1 begins collaboration with Keppel Electric to test an NB-IoT-based energy management meter that will enable businesses and consumers to track their energy consumption, on top of other IoT applications such as flood monitoring, fleet management, and waste management.

According to data from Analysys Mason, total IoT revenue in Singapore is projected to be $714 million in 2025, of which connectivity and services will account for $95 million while applications will account for $349 million. The numbers signal Singapore’s position as the epicenter and hub for IoT technology in ASEAN as infrastructures have been laid out to support IoT deployments in both the public and private sectors.

Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister-in-Charge of the Smart Nation initiative, revealed various plans over the next couple of years to support the initiative. This includes equipping the workforce with data science and future skills, helping small-medium enterprises (SMEs) to build stronger digital capabilities, and facilitating the road to a cashless society, among many others.

The 28th edition of Asia IoT Business Platform will return to Singapore for the third time on 15-16 January 2019.
This year’s edition in Singapore will focus on the benefits of digital transformation for enterprises and the challenges that exist today from the perspective of enterprises.
