Since 2020, in the special crisis, the industrial Internet has played an important role in supporting industrial chain coordination, helping enterprises resume work and production, stabilizing the economy and ensuring people’s livelihood. It can be said that this crisis makes the application advantages and great value of industrial Internet more complete and in-depth, and provides a good opportunity for the next development of industrial Internet.

What is the industrial Internet? Industrial Internet refers to the emerging business form and application mode formed by the integration of new generation information and communication technologies such as artificial intelligence, Internet of things, big data and 5g with advanced manufacturing industry. In short, it is to promote the efficiency of industrial manufacturing production, management and service by giving full play to the advantages of information technology.

After being officially included in the category of “new infrastructure”, the development of industrial Internet undoubtedly faces better opportunities. As an important part of the information infrastructure in the “new infrastructure”, the industrial Internet will obviously become one of China’s national strategies and accelerate the deployment in the future. At present, governments at all levels, from the central to local levels, are vigorously promoting the development of industrial Internet.

5g, Internet of things and other cutting-edge technologies have accelerated the integration and promoted the landing of industrial Internet industry

At the central level, the Ministry of industry and information technology issued the industrial Internet Architecture (version 2.0), which redefined the reference architecture of the industrial Internet from the perspectives of business, function and Implementation on the basis of inheriting the core concepts, elements and functional system of version 1.0.

In addition, the Ministry of industry and information technology also issued the notice on accelerating the development of industrial Internet, proposing to promote the integration and innovation of industrial Internet in a wider range, deeper degree and higher level, cultivate and expand new kinetic energy of economic development, and support the realization of high-quality development. Encourage industrial enterprises to upgrade the industrial Internet intranet, create 10 benchmark networks, and promote 100 leading enterprises in key industries and 1000 local backbone enterprises to carry out the transformation and upgrading of the industrial Internet intranet.

At the local level, provinces and cities in the Yangtze River Delta such as Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai and Anhui have begun to make efforts to give full play to the head goose effect of the “demonstration area”, fully promote the ecological construction of industrial Internet and promote the innovative development of industrial Internet. At the same time, Hubei, Chongqing and other central and western provinces have also followed up, planning to build a number of “5g + industrial Internet” projects.

At present, the application scope and depth of industrial Internet are expanding day by day, and its impact on economic development is becoming more and more obvious. Relevant statistics show that in 2018 and 2019, China’s industrial Internet led to 1.35 million and 2.06 million new jobs in the whole society. It is estimated that in 2020, the scale of economic added value of China’s industrial Internet industry will be about 3.1 trillion yuan, and its contribution to economic growth will exceed 11%.

In addition, stimulated by new technological innovation and new market demand, the field of industrial Internet is realizing rapid development. In particular, with the accelerated integration of 5g network, Internet of things and other cutting-edge technologies, the transformation and upgrading of industrial manufacturing industry has been accelerating, and intelligent manufacturing and advanced manufacturing have become the mainstream trend, providing a good entrance for the implementation of industrial Internet.

On the whole, the development trend of China’s industrial Internet continues to be positive, and its influence on economic construction and industrial reform has become more and more in-depth, which has accelerated the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry and provided key support for the high-quality development of the real economy. However, at this stage, there are still some challenges in the development of industrial Internet.

First, the innovation ability is insufficient, and the core technology needs to be broken through; Second, the construction of standard system lags behind; Third, the hidden danger of network security has not been solved; Fourth, the potential of application scenarios is not fully tapped, and there is a lack of high-value market; Fifth, there are weaknesses in talent training, and high-end compound talents are difficult to meet the needs of the industry.

However, for the field of industrial Internet, it is not without other help. For example, in the context of the commercialization of 5g technology, the popularization and application of 5g will bring significant benefits to the field of industrial Internet. Its advantages such as high speed, low delay and large capacity will provide practical support for the integrated application and market expansion of industrial Internet.
