At the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 epidemic became a global pandemic. Through arduous efforts and at great cost, China has effectively reversed the situation of the epidemic. However, the global epidemic situation is still severe, causing an impact on global economic and social development, and triggering a profound adjustment of the world pattern, and the uncertainty of the development of the Internet industry has increased. Since the beginning of this year, the development of China’s Internet industry has entered a period of adjustment. The revenue growth of listed companies has slowed down significantly, the total market value continues to fluctuate, investment and financing remain low, and the industry pattern has been differentiated. In the face of the current severe and complex international situation and major public health crisis, the Internet has given full play to its advantages in new elements, new models and new momentum. Relying on the cross-border integration and online and offline integration brought about by data flow and sharing, Internet continues to promote changes in the fields of retail, education, medical care, manufacturing, etc. to meet the needs of people’s daily life, promote the acceleration of transformation and upgrading of traditional industries and effectively alleviate the impact of the epidemic on the economy and society. China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) has released the Internet Industry Development and Prosperity Index Report for six consecutive years since 2015. Focusing on researching new developments and trends in the industry, the report is one of the important scientific research achievements of CAICT. We hope to provide valuable reference for people from all walks of life to gain an in-depth understanding of the latest situation and development trend of the Internet industry. We would like to express our gratitude to universities and enterprises such as Tsinghua University, iQiyi, and Wangsu Science & Technology for their strong support in the preparation of this white paper.
