China is expected to overtake the USA to become the largest cellular M2M market in 2013, with volumes increasing by over 40% to reach just over 45 million and grow to 138 million in 2017, according to Pyramid Research.
The report notes that the Chinese government strongly supports the development of M2M, highlighting it as a key area in its 2011-2015 development plan.
It wants to drive energy efficiency and support the potential services for its huge population, such as transportation and healthcare, as well as the domestic industry's development to become a global leader in areas such as module manufacturing, device design, software development, cloud services and network services.
