Over 31 Billion eCoupons will be Redeemed by 2019

With the advent of mobile couponing, eCoupons are being delivered to and accessed via multiple devices -- such as PCs, smartphones and media tablets. Moreover, eCoupons are offered through a variety of distribution channels -- including email, apps and websites.

Juniper Research has found that the number of eCoupons redeemed will nearly double over the next three years, rising from 16 billion this year to more than 31 billion in 2019.

The findings from the latest Juniper market study uncovered that redemptions would primarily be driven by mobile coupons.

Juniper argues that while there would be some growth in the PAH (print at home) space across fixed and mobile, the increase would primarily be driven through in-store, barcode based redemptions and online redemptions.

At the same time, the market study observed that that consumer behavior was evolving to incorporate online or mobile coupon search prior to either remote or in-store purchases.

It cited the sharp rise in visits to the couponing section of retailer sites, and in traffic to aggregator sites such as VoucherCloud.

Juniper analysts also claimed that even with context-driven offers, consumers were increasingly storing the coupons on-device (often in a wallet such as Passbook, Samsung Wallet or Google Wallet) and redeeming them at a later date.


Analytics are Key to Targeted Coupon Delivery

Additionally, the market study findings disclosed that analytics of consumer purchase patterns were essential to enable an increase in CLV (Customer Lifetime Value).

"Coupons should offer discounts on products that a consumer might be interested in purchasing, rather than those purchased on a regular basis: otherwise, coupon redemption represents a loss to the brand or retailer," said  Dr Windsor Holden, research director at Juniper Research.

Other findings from the market study include:
  • Lack of scanning infrastructure at retailer POS remains a key hurdle to adoption.
  • Couponing platform integration with leading social media provides significant opportunity for the delivery of targeted offerings.
  • High profile data thefts may reduce uptake of store loyalty cards and consequently reduce opportunity for targeted couponing.

Demand for Quantum Computing as a Service

The enterprise demand for quantum computing is still in its early stages, growing slowly. As the technology becomes more usable, we may see demand evolve beyond scientific applications. The global quantum computing market is forecast to grow from $1.1 billion in 2022 to $7.6 billion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). That's a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.1 percent. The forecast includes base Quantum Computing as a Service, as well as enabling and adjacent Quantum Computing as a Service. However, this updated forecast is considerably lower than IDC's previous quantum computing forecast, which was published in 2021, due to lower demand globally. Quantum Computing Market Development In the interim, customer spend for quantum computing has been negatively impacted by several factors, including: slower than expected advances in quantum hardware development, which have delayed potential return on inve

AI Semiconductor Revenue will Reach $119.4B

The Chief Information Officer (CIO) and/or the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) will guide Generative AI initiatives within the large enterprise C-Suite. They may already have the technical expertise and experience to understand the capabilities and limitations of Gen AI. They also have the authority and budget to make the necessary investments in infrastructure and talent to support Gen AI initiatives. Enterprise AI infrastructure is proven to be expensive to build, operate and maintain. That's why public cloud service provider solutions are often used for new AI use cases. AI Semiconductor Market Development Semiconductors designed to execute Artificial Intelligence (AI) workloads will represent a $53.4 billion revenue opportunity for the global semiconductor industry in 2023, an increase of 20.9 percent from 2022, according to the latest worldwide market study by Gartner. "The developments in generative AI and the increasing use of a wide range AI-based applications in data c

Industrial Cloud Computing Apps Gain Momentum

In the manufacturing industry, cloud computing can help leaders improve their production efficiency by providing them with real-time data about their operations. This has gained the attention of the C-suite. Total forecast Industrial Cloud platform revenue in manufacturing will surpass $300 billion by 2033 with a CAGR of 22.57 percent, driven by solution providers enhancing platform interoperability while expanding partner ecosystems for application development. ABI Research found the cloud computing manufacturing market will grow over the next decade due to the adoption of new architectural frameworks that enhance data extraction and interoperability for manufacturers looking to maximize utility from their data. Industrial Cloud Computing Market Development "Historically, manufacturers have built out their infrastructure to include expensive data housing in the form of on-premises servers. The large initial upfront cost of purchasing, setting up, and maintaining these servers is
