Accelerated adoption of digital technologies could triple South Africa’s productivity growth, resulting into a net gain of up to 1.2 million jobs in South Africa by 2030.
With all the obstacles being faced by the country, South Africa’s mobile internet user base is expected to grow from 57.3% in 2022 to 67.48% in 2026 because of it’s potential. South Africa, the region’s most advanced economy, expects the IoT market to grow to $31.6 billion by 2028, up from $4.98 billion in 2022. In 2023 itself, the cloud market in South Africa is expected to increase by up to 50%. Furthermore, rapid urbanisation and growing smart city initiatives such as Lanseria Smart City and Century City are expected to pave the way for the development of emerging technologies such as IoT, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence.
