PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE  
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
 
I'm very excited to announce that the Thread 1.0 specification, which was released to members in July, is now approved and unencumbered by royalties from Thread Group members. This is huge step forward for Thread, and I'm personally excited to see fantastic components and products shipping with Thread next year.
 
Recent membership growth has been very positive, with OSRAM joining the board swelling our ranks to over 220 members!

The team working on the Thread 1.0 Test Harness and Cert program are getting very close to shipping the Beta version of the Test Harness to members, another great milestone for the Group. See our news release here. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the members and staff who've put in a huge effort to make this happen.

I look forward to meeting with many of you at the next Thread All Member Meeting in Evian, France this week on November 18th and 19th. If you can't make it to Evian, Thread will have a booth during CES in Las Vegas, Jan 6-9 in the Sands Expo (Booth number #70560) We'll be showing off some exciting demos of products and components that are running Thread (many still pre-certified) Feel free to come by the booth and say hello!

Regards,
Chris Boross,
President Thread Group

MARKET INTELLIGENCE
According to IDC 's recent IoT Market Forecast study, the IoT industry in the Asia/Pacific region will continue to see strong growth with the number of connected units or "things" increasing from 3.1 to 8.6 billion by 2020. China not only will continue to dominate the Asia/Pacific region, accounting for 59% of the APeJ market opportunity by 2020, but will also be one of the leading markets globally with nearly 1 out of every 5 units connected by 2020 to be in China. Though China leads the way in terms of its IoT spend, the top three most mature markets in the region are South Korea, Australia and New Zealand.
