5G Will Transform the Media Landscape and Enable Over US$69 Billion in Revenues to Cloud Gaming and Cloud Video by 2024

While 2019 has seen the first deployments of 5G in the consumer domain, 2020 will be the year of large scale commercial 5G rollouts across the globe. In line with this, 5G generated revenues for cloud-based entertainment services is forecasted to rise sharply until at least 2024. As newly forecasted data by ABI Research reveals, by 2024, 5G alone will contribute revenues of almost US$1.9 billion to cloud gaming (accounting for 42% of overall cloud gaming revenues) as well as US$67.5 billion in cloud video (accounting for 31% of cloud video revenues).

These numbers underline the growing demand for cloud-based entertainment services,” says Leo Gergs, Research Analyst for 5G Markets. “As an important enabler for these new entertainment services, 5G will be critical for the telco industry to unlock these immense revenue opportunities and turn them into commercial reality.”

COVID-19 Pandemic Hits the IoT: 18% Drop in Net New IoT Devices in 2020

The Internet of Things (IoT) will be integral to the long-term recovery plans of the post-COVID-19 economy worldwide, yet some facets of the IoT itself will be negatively impacted in the short term. A combination of manufacturing shut-downs, supply chain interruptions, and changes in connected product availability and demand is expected to cause an 18% drop in the net addition of IoT devices in 2020, according to ABI Research.

Jamie Moss, Research Director for M2M, IoT and IOE explains, “COVID-19’s impact on the IoT is three-fold. Some applications will experience a decline in shipments during 2020, ergo a reduction in the expected growth rate to their installed base. Yet, with no intrinsic change to their desirability and utility, they will return to expected growth in subsequent years. Some will experience a temporary stall in 2020 that will be compensated  by increased activity immediately after, to bring things installed base expectations back into line. While others will experience fundamental shifts in demand, both positive and negative, for years to come as consumer and enterprise priorities shift in the light of COVID-19.”

AI's impact on business: The quest to make money

TechTarget

Artificial intelligence, still considered an emerging technology, is already fueling revenue growth at companies across industries.

Lian Jye Su, a principal analyst with ABI Research, identified two broad areas where organizations can use AI for financial gain. "When it comes to revenue generation, I think it involves legitimate and appropriate monetization of existing internal or user data, or commercialization of internal AI practices and software," he said.

Organizations that commercialize internal AI practices and software "can choose to make their own internal AI-enabled products available to their clients or potential customers via licensing or via open source," Su said. He pointed to global manufacturer Foxconn, explaining that it developed its industrial AI platform with other partners and now offers it for sale through a spinoff entity.

Will Apple's AR Glasses Be Ready for Spring 2021 Debut?

ECT News Network

Content will not be an issue for the glasses by the time they're released, predicted Eleftheria Kouri, research analyst at ABI Research, a technology advisory company based in Oyster Bay, New York.

"I am expecting that initially Apple will rely on available AR applications before developers familiarize themselves with the device and build new applications," she told TechNewsWorld. "It is anticipated that Apple will leverage Apple TV and Apple Music, allowing users to broadcast content in the AR device," Kouri said.

"Similarly, users will be able to play AR games from Apple Arcade," she added. "Also, it is expected that the integration of the LiDAR sensor in the latest iPad Pro and upcoming iPhone 12 Pro will enrich the available AR applications and better prepare consumers for the AR smart glasses."
