A developed IoT ecosystem…
France provides a vibrant digital research environment including a host of innovation clusters: Systematic (Paris), CITC (Lille), IoT Valley (Toulouse) and SCS (Nice). Companies established in France that develop connected devices can benefit from a research tax credit.
…with local appetite
In 2017, 5.2 million connected devices were sold in France, generating turnover of more than €1 billion, a third more than in 2016, according to GfK.
France's connected objects market is expected to grow by 60% a year until 2020.
'It meets demand from clients we already accompany to Las Vegas'
'Start-ups go to CES to create buzz, exist and validate their products, while they go to IFA to sell and sign contracts'. Eric Morand, Head of Business France's Tech department and jury member believes the 2 events are complementary.
A catalogue with further information on all the French exhibitors is available upon request.
