Demand for 3D Video Content on CE Devices

According to the latest market study by Ipsos, recent survey data indicates that younger U.S. consumers (age 18-34) are particularly interested in enjoying 3D video content on consumer electronics (CE) devices -- such as a TV or PC.

"Given the broad-based declines in consumer fortunes caused by the Great Recession, entertainment-focused firms have huge motivation to identify the next new thing to drive demand," explains Todd Board, Senior Vice President at Ipsos MediaCT.

Because interest in 3D content skews young, and also male, there's a compelling connection between the appeal of 3D video content and the kinds of highly immersive videogames that this group also favors.

This same 18-34 market segment also reported the highest intention to buy an HDTV in the next 3 months.

"While we can't directly equate holiday season HDTV purchase intent with more broad-based 3D video market potential, we do see the confluence among 18-34 consumers as an important milestone," Board continues.

Even with the burden of the ongoing downturn hitting this age group especially hard, their appetite for new technology options is unfazed -- based on these findings and other MOTION data on their interest in videogames, e-readers, smartphones, and digital media.

Concludes Board, "While interest in new technologies doesn't magically convert into willingness-to-pay, where consumer segments show persistent appetite, CE and content firms must focus product development and marketing attention, especially in this environment."

A diversified technology and media company like Sony -- deeply involved in CE, the gaming space, and movie production -- could benefit from continued interest in 3D visual entertainment among younger consumers.

Climate Change Benefits from The Circular Economy

The COP26 Summit (in Glasgow, Scotland)  brought parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Meanwhile, the circular economy is a key sustainability strategy adopted by industry leaders in their efforts to achieve progress. While the circular economy is still in its infancy in terms of data and metrics, it's a growing phenomenon where technology sectors -- such as the Internet of Things (IoT) for asset tracking -- are set to grow rapidly within the next five years. Global technology intelligence firm ABI Research forecasts that the world will achieve over 10.5 percent circularity by 2030, as sustainability efforts and incoming legislation start to take effect.

Guidance for Leading Digital Business Value Creation

In today's environment where business technology is a key enabler of competitive advantage, CEOs need to be sure that someone is confidently leading digital business growth across the organization. The default is the Chief Information Officer (CIO) role. According to the latest worldwide market study by Gartner, in order to accelerate business value creation, CIOs and other IT executives should focus on three key areas -- leading from anywhere, nurturing connections, and reaching beyond. Mbula Schoen, senior research director at Gartner , said that as organizations continue to emerge from the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, CIOs and IT executives will need to generate value in fundamentally new ways. Business Technology Market Development Gartner forecasts that by the end of 2022, the share of knowledge workers working remotely will increase to 47 percent -- that's up from 27 percent in 2019. However, simply moving from onsite to remote is not the destination but merely a

Business Technology for The Anywhere Workspace

The COVID-19 global pandemic fueled the trend of pushing executives outside of their comfort zone, while government-mandated lockdowns required their knowledge worker employees to work from home. Companies that previously avoided 'Flexible Working' models were forced to embrace the pervasive trend in a matter of weeks, as new remote working policies became a CHRO standard practice. As we enter 2022, more employers will empower their key employees to work wherever they desire and engage with customers whenever and however they prefer. Moreover, the ongoing transformation to an 'Anywhere Workspace' will drive strategic IT spending and advance cloud-based SaaS adoption. Business Technology Market Development Global enterprise IT spending is projected to total $4.5 trillion in 2022, an increase of 5.5 percent over 2021, according to the latest worldwide market study by Gartner.
