Cloud Gaming: an Emerging Trend Within the Video Games Market

POSTED BY James Moar
Over recent years, developments in advanced cloud technology have turned the idea of cloud gaming from a potentially significant new model within the industry into a reality. Indeed, a new report from Juniper Research found that the video games industry will exceed $200 billion in value in 2023; growing from an expected $155 billion in 2020. And it will be mobile and cloud gaming to lead this growth, as the market shifts further towards recurring revenue, and purchase revenue declines by 5% over that period.

Smart Checkout Technologies Aiming to Revolutionise Traditional Stores

POSTED BY Nick Maynard
Smart checkout technologies provide much simpler user experiences by removing traditional checkouts; embracing a ‘just walk out’ approach. We predict that the value of transactions processed by smart checkout technologies, where the fixed checkout process is replaced by a frictionless model, will reach $387 billion in 2025, up from just $2 billion in 2020. The rapid growth will be driven by retailers seeking sustainable business models.

POSTED BY Sam Barker
A new study from Juniper Research has found that the number of vehicles with embedded connectivity will reach 200 million globally by 2025; rising from 110 million in 2020. As a result, we predict both 5G adoption and the incorporation of embedded eSIMS will be a catalyst for this growth; making operators some of the main beneficiaries of this new trend.

COVID-19 Causes Slow Growth for B2B Cross-border Payments

POSTED BY Nick Maynard
A new study from Juniper Research has found that the long-lasting economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic means that cross-border values will only exceed 2019 values by 2022; highlighting the effect that this major economic disruption will have on businesses around the world. As a result, we predict slow growth in B2B Cross-border Payments; reaching $35 trillion in 2022; representing a 30% growth from a COVID-related low of $27 trillion in 2020.
