Online Video Viewership Segmentation in the U.S.


eMarketer estimates that 66.7 percent of all U.S. Internet users -- approximately 147.5 million people -- watch video content online each month. By 2014, viewership will rise to 77 percent of Internet users, or 193.1 million people.

During the same period, online video advertising spending will increase from $1.4 billion to $5.2 billion.

Over the next five years, consumers will become more comfortable watching all forms of video content -- long and short, professional and amateur -- on their Internet-connected mobile phones, laptop PC, desktop PC, tablets and connected TV sets.

But by 2014 the current "monthly viewership" rating will likely be outdated. Daily or weekly viewing will be the relevant metric, with usage perhaps measured in minutes and hours spent viewing video content each day.

Already, 29 percent of Internet users under 25 say they watch all or most of their TV programs online. A closer look at viewership rates by age shows classic early-adopter patterns -- with 18- to 34-year-olds exhibiting the highest viewership.

eMarketer forecasts significant growth in video viewers across all age groups -- in part because of how easy it is to share content online. However, the amount of time baby boomers and seniors watch online video will be smaller compared with their younger counterparts.

Global EV Charging Revenue to Exceed $300B

During 2022, fuel prices increased very quickly, partly due to a number of macroeconomic reasons. In fact, the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic are still impacting fuel prices, with many oil refineries having reduced capacity due to a prior fall in demand. Those significant events and other trends have created a demand for a growing variety of Electric Vehicles (EVs). While EVs have existed for decades, they really became a viable option for more consumers during the past five years. However, although EVs are suitable for some buyer needs, their usability is constrained by the current availability of battery charging infrastructure. EV Charging Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, revenue from electric vehicle charging will exceed $300 billion globally by 2027 -- that's up from $66 billion in 2023. Regardless, the Juniper analysis found that fragmentation in battery charging networks is restricting further EV adoption in some
