The Thai telecom market is a complex commercial environment, with a mix of state-owned companies and private operators functioning under a wide variety of corporate and regulatory structures and interfaces. CAT Telecom is set to merge with its sister fixed line operator TOT to create a stronger business.
Penetration in the fixed line market in Thailand has been declining at a significant and increasing rate over the past five years. A major reason for this is due to the dominance of the mobile segment and the growth of mobile broadband segment. The market is predicted to further decline over the next five years to 2023 as both mobile and mobile broadband penetration continue to increase.
Digital infrastructure in Thailand can potentially attract investment in IoT which will offer opportunity for IoT solutions to development in various industries.
Thailand 4.0 vision has been developed from a realization that digital technologies can drive socio-economic development and economic growth of countries.
The Thai government lifted its target of creating three smart cities by 2018 to seven by including industrial centres on the eastern seaboard. The Eastern Economic Corridor Development Project will turn the eastern part of Thailand into a special economic zone.
As a part of its Thailand 4.0 initiative the country had set itself the target of creating at least 100 smart cities within its borders over the next two decades.
