Asia-Pacific is seeing a hiring boom in automotive industry IoT roles

Some parts of the world are investing more heavily in internet of things roles than others

By Data Journalism Team

Asia-Pacific extended its dominance for internet of things (IoT) hiring among automotive industry companies in the three months ending May.

The number of roles in Asia-Pacific made up 36.9% of total IoT jobs – up from 24.1% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by North America, which saw a -1.1 year-on-year percentage point change in IoT roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include internet of things, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

The fastest growing country was India, which saw 22.4% of all IoT job adverts in the three months ending May 2021, increasing to 27.5% in the three months ending May this year.

That was followed by Australia (up 4.4 percentage points), China (3.4), and France (0.600000000000001).

The top country for IoT roles in the automotive industry is the United States which saw 30.2% of all roles advertised in the three months ending May.

Which cities and locations are the biggest hubs for IoT workers in the automotive industry?

Some 10.2% of all automotive industry IoT roles were advertised in Chennai (India) in the three months ending May.

That was followed by Pune (India) with 3.2%, Warren (United States) with 3.1%, and Dearborn (United States) with 2.9%.
