Smart City Development

Think Asia, China, Win the World

China is undergoing a massive urbanization process which must be sustainable and digital.

There are 1000 Smart City projects in the World, 100 in India but 500 in China. Chinese players will shake up the IoT landscape, increasing market share significantly across AI, ML, software platforms, smart cities deployments, and integrated solutions.The Chinese five year plan points out that developing smart eco-cities – maximizing the conservation of energy, water, land and materials, reducing pollution, optimizing the transportation, protecting the environment, and improving building comfort, health and safety – is a critical stage for accelerating industrialization, urbanization and rural development providing great opportunities. It is estimated that between 2010 and 2025, around 250 million citizens will move from rural areas into cities. By 2030, 1 billion people out of 1.4 billion in China will live in cities, from 3 to 13 (smart eco-) megalopolises built.
