2022 China’s Smart Park Market Report

Source:iResearchJanuary 12,202311:39 AM Overview


The deployment of smart parks mainly follows the path from planning and design, construction and deployment, to management and operation. In general, park property rights holders or operation management agencies initiate projects. Entities supporting the construction and development of smart parks can be roughly divided into three layers, basic layer, platform layer and application layer. The construction of smart parks attaches importance to systematic planning and construction, continuous business scenario permeation, and emphasis on platform system service functions and user experience. In the past year, the smart park market had a high demand for construction, platform system building, and so on. Local suppliers or suppliers with local branches are preferred.


Smart park providers in China are mostly in the eastern region. They generally have high registered capital and attach great importance to technological innovation and patent application. From the perspective of industrial ecology, system integrators, solution providers, and professional platforms are the core players in this field. Professional qualifications, knowledge of the industry, talent teams, cooperative ecology, technical level, and operational services are the key elements of smart park market competition. As smart parks permeate professional business scenarios and operation and maintenance become increasingly important, elements such as knowledge of the industry, talent teams, cooperative ecology, and operation services will be more and more important.


The construction of smart parks in China extends from the east to the central and western regions. In the long run, as the demand for smart park construction in central and western parks and smart park upgrading of eastern parks coexist, the market is still promising. Vertical expansion and refined development of smart scenarios in smart parks will go on. The operation and maintenance of smart parks will also require more digital talents. It is worth noticing that under the refined and vertical development trends of smart park scenarios, business development of smart parks still faces problems such as application barriers, business segmentation, data security, management and operation, and so on.

Development History and Connotation of Smart Parks

Smart parks are an important part of smart cities. They integrate information technologies such as 5G, IoT, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence to gain new development capabilities such as interconnection, openness and sharing, collaborative operation, innovative development, and comprehensive perception. The construction of smart parks has three stages.  In the smart park 1.0 stage,  the primary digitalization of single-point facilities is realized mainly by improving the information infrastructure construction of the park; In the 2.0 stage, digital platforms are constructed, connecting diverse application scenarios. In the 3.0 stage, AI technologies are completely integrated into production, life and ecology of the parks, integrating the core systems of production, transportation, life, municipal administration, transportation, energy, commerce, and business in the parks to achieve intelligence upgrading.

Construction Path and Blueprint of Smart Parks

The three periods of smart park construction and operation, which are planning and design, construction and deployment, and management and operation, form a systematic project that gradually applies digital technology in all aspects of the parks, and realizes the system engineering of intelligent management services, operation and maintenance. Similar to the system architecture of a smart city, the ecosystem of a smart park can be divided into a foundation layer, a platform layer, and an application layer. The foundation layer includes perception terminals, network transmission equipment, etc. The platform layer mainly includes the foundation platform and management platform. The application layer is the application system and interactive interface for various scenarios.

The core of the smart park industry is in the midstream and upstream of the industry chain

Smart Park Company Ecology

System integrators 、solution providers 、professional platform providers are the three types of core players in the smart park industry. Among them, system integrators are usually leading technology companies. Thanks to their advantages in basic hardware and software and core technologies, they have a great say and usually cooperate with different solution providers; Solution providers usually play the role of general integrator or general contractor. They are in charge of the construction and operation of smart parks; Professional platform providers are emerging vendors with expertise in some sectors. They compete with the first two types of players, but also have a cooperative relationship with them in some professional sectors. Other software and hardware providers, design and construction organizations, and weak current engineering organizations provide support for the core players.

Competitive Elements of Core Companies

From the perspective of the three types of core players, which are system integrators, solution providers, and professional platform providers, the key competitive elements are professional qualifications, industry knowledge, talent teams, cooperative ecology, technological level, and operation services. As smart parks are permeating professional business scenarios, the importance of operation and maintenance is increasingly prominent. Elements such as industry knowledge, talent teams, cooperative ecology, and operation services will be more valued.

New Challenges

The fundamental target of smart park business development is providing intelligent methods for park operation and management to help asset holders and operators to achieve comprehensive management and operation objectives such as value preservation and appreciation of park assets, efficient operation of industrial ecology, improvement of urban service functions, etc. With the continuous improvement of the intelligence level of the parks, smart scenarios cover every aspect of the parks. Smart park construction and operation become harder. Both the demand and supply sides of the industry need to join hands to overcome difficulties such as high barriers to application in professional scenarios, business segmentation, increasingly important data security, and low management and operation level.

Smart parks use information technology such as 5G, IoT, big data, BIM, and GIS to collect data such as logistics, the flow of people and information in real-time, realizing smart upgrades of the entire process covering planning and design, implementation and construction, and operation management. With information technology, smart parks can create application scenarios such as smart buildings, smart communities, smart factories, and smart transportation and build park brains that integrate functions such as operation monitoring and intelligent decision-making, connecting different carriers in the park such as production plants, office buildings, residential buildings, public infrastructure, achieving integrated development of production, life, and ecology.
