The term AIoT has been around since 2017. At the beginning of 2019, the AIoT intelligent networking industry set off a wave. In addition to the major network companies launching AIoT intelligent networking strategies, traditional hardware manufacturers have also begun to get involved in the AIoT intelligent networking field. When the AIoT intelligent network was first developed, it was like a new technological revolution. It was an area where all technology companies were competing for investment. Four years later, 5G, industrial Internet, and upgraded infrastructure have made the AIoT intelligent network a trillion-dollar market. , more and more “flavorful”.

AIoT is not a new technology, but a new form of IoT application.
AIoT = AI (artificial intelligence) + IoT (Internet of Things), AIoT is also the artificial intelligence Internet of Things, which is the integration of artificial intelligence technology and the Internet of Things in practical applications. In AIoT, massive data from different dimensions is generated and collected through the Internet of Things, and stored in the cloud and at the edge. With the help of big data analysis and higher-level artificial intelligence, everything can be digitized and everything can be interconnected.

AIoT Intelligent Internet Industry Development
With the rapid development of technologies such as AI, IoT, cloud computing, and big data, as well as the application of vertical industries in many industries, the integration of AI and IoT in practical projects is becoming more prevalent. AIoT intelligent networking industry mainly includes six major sectors: “end”, “side”, “pipe”, “cloud”, “use” and “industrial service”.

“End” refers to the terminal of the Internet of Things, which mainly includes the underlying chips, modules, sensing devices, AI underlying algorithms, and operating systems.

“Edge” is a concept relative to “center”, which generally refers to the position outside the center node. By delegating computing and related capabilities from the central processing node to the edge node, edge computing refers to the computing power close to the terminal.

“Pipe” mainly refers to connecting channels, and related products and services. The large number of connections and complex equipment on-site environment brought by the era of the Internet of Things make wired connections stretched. Therefore, in the application scenarios of AIoT, the network will gradually be dominated by wireless connections.

“Cloud” mainly refers to IoT-related cloud-based capability platforms, including IoT platforms, AI platforms, and other capability platforms represented by big data, network security, and blockchain.

“Using” refers to AIoT’s industrial applications industry. From the perspective of core driving factors, it can be divided into consumption-driven, government-driven, and industry-driven industries.

The “Industrial Service” section mainly includes various alliances, associations, institutions, media, investment funds, etc. Related to the AIoT intelligent networking industry. These organizations provide the industry with services including testing, standard formulation, media, consulting, investment and financing, etc. An influential force for development.

AIoT intelligent networking industry

What is the scale of the AIoT intelligent networking industry?
The AIoT intelligent networking industry is an industry that integrates various technologies and empowers various industries. On April 20, 2020, at the press conference of the National Development and Reform Commission, the government clarified the scope of “new infrastructure” for the first time. Many of the “new infrastructure” directions are closely related to the AIoT industry, including 5G, big data centers, artificial intelligence, and the industrial Internet. It is estimated that by 2025, the direct investment in new infrastructure in the above four areas will exceed 5 trillion yuan, driving-related investment to exceed 10 trillion yuan.

The “new infrastructure” will allow a large amount of human, financial, and material resources to be injected into the AIoT intelligent networking-related industries, directly or indirectly driving the growth of the entire AIoT intelligent networking industry. According to IDC data and forecasts, the global AIoT market will reach US$380.8 billion in 2019, and it is expected to exceed US$750 billion by 2022. This is a compound growth rate of 28.65% from 2019 to 2022. According to iResearch, the overall market size of AIoT will reach 654.8 billion yuan in 2021.

The AIoT intelligent networking market continues to expand, mainly due to the development of AIoT intelligent networking technology and products. These products continue to meet the needs of the broad market, and the further release of market demand brought about by epidemic prevention at home.

China’s AIoT intelligent networking industry is currently in the transition stage from the industrial accumulation period to the industrial growth period. In this special period, infrastructure is rapidly improving and technology integration is accelerating, laying the foundation for the accelerated development of the industry. The energy of the supply-side market has gradually emerged, and it has become one of the major forces for the development of the industry. In the next three years, driven by the consumption-driven end market represented by home furnishing and automobiles and the policy-driven applications represented by public utilities and smart cities, the AIoT intelligent networking industry will continue to maintain rapid growth. In the long run, the AloT intelligent networking industry-driven application market has huge potential and will become a long-term growth point.
