In 2020, the number of third-party mobile input method users in China will reach 755 million, a year-on-year increase of 3.6%, and the user scale is expected to further expand. The first is the continuous increase in the size of Chinese mobile phone netizens. With the continuous development of mobile Internet, the number of mobile Internet users in China has reached 989 million, which provides a favorable social development environment for third-party mobile phone input methods. With the normalization of epidemic prevention and control, online office and online education have become the fastest-growing scenarios. The penetration rate of the use of AI keyboard input functions continues to rise, and it is expected to transform into a new rigid demand in society. According to data from iiMedia Research, the AI voice input function has become an important way for users to input efficiently, and over 60% of users prefer to use it. At the same time, more than 30% of users are proficient in text recognition and intelligent error correction. With the development of online office and online education, users' awareness and demand for functions such as intelligent prediction and intelligent translation will continue to be stimulated. In the iterative upgrade process of mobile phones, the input method has always played the role of an indispensable application. As a rigid demand in the market, the application will continue to deepen in the future under the development of 5G and AI technology.
Smart scene is a means of real-time perception of the scene where the user is located through technology for a specific scene, and a means of intelligently matching users and scene services. The realization of smart scenarios mainly relies on the development of technology. 5G has currently built 700,000 base stations and the number of terminal connections exceeds 180 million. In 2019, the scale of China's cloud computing market reached 133.4 billion, a growth rate of 38.6%, and the scale of core artificial intelligence industry in 2019 More than 51 billion yuan. As the technology gradually matures, intelligent interconnection of everything based on precise positioning, real-time sensing, data calculation, and personalized services becomes possible. Traditional infrastructure is also gradually transforming to "new infrastructure", and today's business districts, travel, communities, and industrial parks are beginning to move closer to intelligence. The State Council’s Government Work Report in the past three years has repeatedly mentioned the promotion of digital society. According to data from iiMedia Research, in 2019, China's offline retail sales accounted for 75% of the total retail sales of consumer goods. Offline consumption is still the mainstream consumption method of domestic residents, and there is huge room for market growth. The actual user profile of big data is more accurate, and new retail further promotes the integration of online and offline, helping to create smart scenarios.
In recent years, China Internet medical industry has developed rapidly, from the embryonic stage to high-speed development period. In 2020, the development of Internet medical industry will continue to accelerate under the influence of Covid-19, and the application of 5G and AI technology will also boost the growth of the industry scale. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, 74.4% of the interviewed netizens participated in Internet medical services during the Covid-19 period, and more than 70% netizens believed that it could reduce the pressure of outpatient service and avoid cross infection. In the main market segments of Internet medical industry, mobile medical platforms, with the help of the popularization of mobile Internet and improvement of logistics level, have a rapid brand recognition and market development. In 2020, the user scale of China mobile medical industry will reach 635 million, and the market size will also exceed 52 billion yuan.
With the continuous growth of global big data, the demand for data cloud storage capacity will continue to expand in the future. According to iiMedia Research, the global data center storage capacity will reach 272 exabytes in 2020. The ever-expanding demand for personal data and cloud storage has accelerated the development of the personal cloud service market. It is estimated that by 2020, the scale of China's personal cloud disk users is expected to exceed 400 million. In the context of the 5G era, the security of personal network disks such as data security, transmission security, personal information and privacy protection has attracted the attention of users. In the future, the personal network disk industry will improve users in terms of security, storage space, and transmission speed. Use experience to promote the healthy development of the industry.
In 2019, the overall scale of the digital economy reached 35.84 trillion yuan, accounting for 36.2% of GDP. The digital economy has become an important engine of economic development. The expansion of market entities and the increase in enterprise employment costs have driven the demand for electronic signatures to increase. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, China's electronic contract signings reached 27.89 billion in 2019, a year-on-year growth rate of 317.5%. With the help of the epidemic, the policy opportunities brought about by the in-depth development of informatization reform have accelerated the top-down penetration of electronic signatures. The scale of electronic contract signing is expected to continue to grow rapidly, and it is expected to exceed 50 billion times in 2020. The electronic signature platform is of great significance to promote the digital transformation of enterprises, and the industry value is recognized by the capital market. Overall, the revenue of China's electronic signature market is in a stage of steady growth, but there is still huge room for growth compared to foreign electronic signature markets. In the future, the industry chain of electronic signature will become better. Driven by the technology and market environment, the use of electronic signatures will continue to expand and the use of forms will continue to innovate. The development of mobile electronic signature platforms makes electronic signature operations more convenient and the trend of electronic signature popularization is obvious.
