According to data from iiMedia Research, the scale of China’s AI chip market in 2019 is about 11.55 billion yuan. Driven by the popularization of 5G commercial use, policies, and technology, AI chips are expected to be used in cloud computing, security, and consumer electronics. Robotics and other fields achieve large-scale commercial use, and the AI chip market is expected to reach 43.68 billion yuan in 2021. However, with the accelerated popularization of artificial intelligence technology, downstream application fields have higher and higher requirements for AI computing power and energy consumption. The bottleneck of traditional Von Neumann architecture chips has gradually emerged, and AI chip will develop towards the integration of storage and computing. iiMedia Consulting analysts believe that although the development prospects of the storage-computing integrated AI chip are widely recognized, the overall development is still in the initial stage. From the realization of the integrated design of computing and storage, to the implementation of technology, mass production, and large-scale commercial use, there is still a long stage. Companies that can take the lead in achieving technological and product breakthroughs will be more easily supported by capital, talent, and the market.
Covid-19 has serious impact on the global economy in 2020, which leading to operation difficulties for small and medium enterprises. In addition, the development of online office industry will also affect the joint office industry. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, 45.4% of the interviewed joint office users believed that the occupancy rate of their joint office had decreased compared to the one before the epidemic. In 2020, the growth of China joint office market is also expected to slow down, and the market scale will reach 136.82 million yuan. However, the advantages of joint office in office and rental mode are more suitable for small and medium enterprises or star-ups to make transition in the early stage of epidemic slowdown, and its development is still worth looking forward to. Joint Office enterprises need to gradually expand the value-added services in the middle and back-end, provide vertical services for customers, seek the transformation of profit model, which is for getting rid of the limitations of the current ‘rental operation’ business model.
In recent years, China's digital transformation has continued to deepen, and the scale of the digital economy has continued to increase. Data show that in 2019, the scale of China’s digital economy reached 35.8 trillion yuan, accounting for 36.2% of GDP. In addition, the number of small and medium-sized enterprises continued to increase. At the end of 2019, the number of Chinese enterprises reached 38.583 million. iiMedia Consulting analysts believe that the number of China’s small and medium-sized enterprises is huge, and there is still room for substantial improvement in overall digitalization, and the demand for digital services of enterprises is wide. Driven by technology, policies and other factors, the China's corporate service market has broad room for development and the market blossom. The service market with certain rigid demand characteristics such as human resources, finance and taxation, and marketing is expected to take the lead in popularity and growth. In terms of market perception, as the data of iiMedia Research showed, 32.0% of workplace respondents believe that companies affected by COVID-19 will increase their attention to the corporate service market, and 23.7% of workplace respondents believe that companies will increase the investment in related services. The outbreak of COVID-19 has made more and more companies realize the importance of digital transformation, and their attention to corporate services represented by digitalization has increased, which is conducive to the market penetration of corporate services.
With the development of new infrastructure, artificial intelligence is accelerating two-way empowerment and in-depth collaboration with emerging technologies such as big data, cloud computing, 5G and the Internet of Things. The process of technology commercialization is gradually accelerating. As the data showed, the scale of China's core artificial intelligence industry exceeded 51 billion yuan in 2019 and is expected to exceed 1 trillion yuan in 2030. iiMedia consulting analysts believe that the launch of the new infrastructure strategy in 2020 will facilitate the full industrialization of artificial intelligence from policy resources, technology ecology, application scenarios and other aspects. The scale of core industries will continue to grow strongly. Artificial intelligence rapidly expands in both horizontal and vertica. Artificial intelligence enterprises booms in related fields. But opportunities often come with challenges, such as data security, privacy protection, process supervision and other issues can not be ignored. iiMedia consulting analysts believe that technology is a double-edged sword, which requires a supporting regulatory system to ensure the sustainable and healthy development of related industries. The improvement of the market's risk sensitivity will accelerate the introduction of relevant governance systems.
With the accelerated implementation of the digitalization process, many government departments have mentioned strengthening and deepening the application of electronic signature technology. At the same time, with the increase in enterprise labor costs, the demand for electronic signature has increased, and the popularity of electronic signature technology has been further accelerated. According to the data of iiMedia Research ，the average penetration rate of electronic signature industry is close to 10%, especially in the fields of human resources, real estate, logistics, manufacturing, etc., where contracts and agreements are the most important documents signed by electronic signatures Types.Nearly 60% of users use electronic signatures more than 100 times a week, and it is generally stated that electronic signatures have significant cost-reduction and efficiency improvements compared to traditional signatures. At the same time, data security is also widely valued by enterprises, and only 40% of users believe that their information security is 100% guaranteed. iiMedia consulting analysts believe that the integration of new technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence has broadened the scope of electronic signature services, and the market concentration will be further improved. At the same time, compliance security capabilities will become the core barrier for manufacturers, and the assessment standards will gradually become stricter .
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.
