Market Outlook: Software as a Service (SaaS)
From ‘China Tech: Emerging Enterprise SaaS Companies’ by Douglas Kim
“The Chinese enterprise Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) sector trails the more developed U.S. SaaS sector by nearly 5 to 10 years. Despite this lag, the SaaS market in China has grown rapidly over the past five years. In 2015, the SaaS market in China was about 9.9 billion yuan and this market is expected to reach nearly 47.3 billion yuan in 2020 (US$7.2 billion), representing a nearly 36.7% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2015 to 2020.
The global market size of the SaaS is estimated to be about $157 billion. Therefore, China is estimated to account for about 4.6% of the global SaaS market. In our view, the global SaaS market is expected to grow at about 15-17% per year over the next two years whereas China’s SaaS market is likely to grow at nearly double the global average of about 30-35% per year in the same period, taking into account their recent market growth rates."
Market Outlook: Internet of Things (IoT)
From ‘Emerging IoT Companies in China’ By LightStream Research
“China is currently leading the Internet of Things (IoT) race, supported by the efforts of its telco providers, the government, and early adoption of 5G. Estimates by various consultancy and industry bodies expect China’s IoT industry to grow at a stronger rate over the forecast period (c. 27% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over 2019-2025), surpassing US spending on IoT.
A growing focus on Industrial IoT (IIoT) has become a key trend in the Chinese IoT industry. Initially, IoT was mainly adopted by the consumer sector, particularly in developing smart devices and smart homes. Given the country’s large manufacturing base, IIoT is seen as a sector with the highest growth potential for IoT services. IIoT is still in its nascent stage, and we believe that China is well-positioned for growth in this sector.”
