The IoT Market Potential
One of Asia’s fastest growing economies, the Philippines is becoming an emerging tech ecosystem in the region. The country’s economic growth is expected to remain stable and robust, maintaining between 7% – 8% for the next 3 years as a result of strong public investments.
Initiatives to develop the digital infrastructure of the country includes a USD$26 million plan to provide free WiFi in public spaces and educational institute and a further USD$4 million to improve internet quality and speed. These initiatives will be implemented by the Department of Information and Communications Technology. The country will also be introducing a 3rd major telecom company to improve telecommunications services by increasing the competition.
Another key area in the initiative is smart cities. As an essential component in digital economies, smart cities incorporate sustainable growth and technological integration into a country as well as giving substantial economic boost. The Philippines have planned for multiple projects to be launched over the next decade with prominent ones such as the New Manila Bay City of Pearl and New Clark City being core developments. New Clark City alone is set to contribute an additional USD$31 billion to the country’s GDP.
