Hong Kong – at the heart of world’s fastest growing IoT market
“Hong Kong is proud to be host of the world’s most prestigious event for the burgeoning IoT sector. The business opportunities for IoT adoption in Greater China and North Asia are simply huge.”
Hon. Charles Mok, incumbent IT representative and Member, Hong Kong Legislative Council (LEGCO)
Hong Kong already leads the world* in adoption of cloud computing which is fueling the growth of IoT together with high speed network infrastructure, mass penetration of mobile devices and Greater China’s domination of the sensor manufacturing market.
Over the next five years Asia will lead the IoT market revolution and will grow faster than anywhere in the world. The Pan-Asia IoT technology market will be worth US$75 billion by 2021 (up from $24 billion in 2016), according to Frost & Sullivan.

“I believe that the application of IoT technologies is one of the key drivers of re-industrialisation. With our close proximity to the huge Mainland market, and the combined advantage of "one country, two systems", Hong Kong has all the elements to make innovation and technology industries flourish.”
Nicholas W Yang, Secretary for Innovation and Technology, Hong Kong Government
