Telecommunication service providers are anticipated to dominate the communication T&M market during the forecast period. South Korea offers significant growth opportunity for communication T&M equipment as end-users from the communication industry seek to offer their customers high-quality and high-performing services.

Increasing production of Li-ion batteries

The South Korean Li-ion market has grown significantly in the past few years. This is primarily due to efficient performance of li-ion batteries in various consumer and industrial products. High demand can be seen from the automotive industry for the development of electric vehicles (EVs).

The EV market in the country is experiencing rapid growth because of high investment from vendors and shifting consumer focus towards EV. Development of EV will also reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and can eliminate the fuel price fluctuation risk.

Moreover, South Korean companies, such as LG Chem and Samsung SDI, are major suppliers of EV batteries globally. Hence, the demand for EVs from other countries will also boost the Li-ion battery market in South Korea.

Center for innovation

The country boasts of high R&D spending and has the highest R&D percentage of GDP. The country has the highest broadband penetration and boasts of high average peak connection speeds of approximately 50Mbps. The country’s tech-savvy population and its success in manufacturing and exporting cutting-edge electronics products has consolidated its position as a leader in technology. “The start-up culture is promoted by the mobile game developers and social media innovators and is further complemented by entrepreneurs with an interest in innovative concepts that are not inherent to the country and a willingness to take risks,” says Anju.
