STRENGTHS
Spain improved its ranking from 23th to 22th in the GCI 2019.

The most impressive improvement comes from the rapid improvements in its broadband networks. Investment in telecom, FTTH, and 4G has progressively ramped up, and at the same time, smartphone and mobile broadband penetration have grown to the maximum, receiving full scores in the GCI assessment. Growing demand for cloud migration, and improvements in the cloud computing user experience will induce the development of more advanced technologies such as IoT and AI.

More potential could lie in high tech enablers such as cloud services. According to the GCI indicators, Spain's ICT is performing above global average levels. The high connectivity and high mobile phone penetration rates will provide an excellent basis for embracing various IoT use cases, and the markets will be highly receptive to new technologies in the short term.
OPPORTUNITIES
IoT is playing a key role in the evolution of communications and revolutionizing the global technology sector. Spain is close to the global cutting edge, with many Spanish cities already adopting this technology. Spanish advances in IoT can be seen in a series of IoT projects launched in Madrid to improve mobility and combat pollution. The advances in IoT and its applications bring benefits to the city as a whole, and also improve quality of life for individual citizens. Improving the efficiency and sustainability of cities makes life easier for citizens: It saves their time, gives them better access to information on their devices, and provides personalized assistance that allows better decision making. Technology is in constant evolution and always requires further development and testing. IoT investment will continue to grow in Spain in the coming years.
