Published on April 24, 2023, this report by James Joiner, Christina Patsioura, Sayali Borole, and Zach Whiteby from GSMA examines the network connectivity landscape and significant IoT use cases in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in Sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. The number of IoT devices is anticipated to reach 37 billion by 2023, with development potential in industries such as transportation, agriculture, environment, health, utilities, and humanitarian relief. Collaboration across the IoT ecosystem has been identified as essential to sustaining the projected growth. The main takeaway is that IoT can improve existing services and develop new ones.
