"We expect that the tracking sector will be the largest IoT sector in South Africa in 2027 in terms of the number of connections, followed by smart buildings and automotive."
South Africa has the highest number of cellular M2M connections in Africa thanks to the early introduction of the technology. The IoT ecosystem is maturing due to the strong co-operation between MNOs and ICT players. The tracking, smart buildings and automotive sectors will continue to drive the demand for IoT services, and agriculture, health, smart cities and utilities offer good prospects. However, the cost and complexity of rolling out and integrating an IoT solution, combined with the slow economic growth that is putting pressure on IT spending, will act as barriers to mass adoption.
