Asia-Pacific Region to Lead Multi-Screen TV Adoption

During the course of 2015, more people will watch broadcast television, pay-TV programming and a variety of other video content on a greater range of consumer electronics devices.

The commercial implications of this transition will impact the whole Technology, Media and Telecommunications sectors in numerous ways. In some markets it creates a significant new upside opportunity, in others the incumbent video entertainment service providers will experience subscriber declines.

In particular, advertiser supported programming will experience some disruption, as more marketers continue to shift their budgets from traditional broadcast media channels to online digital media.

In addition, the growth of connected consumers accessing the internet for the first time -- many enabled by low-cost smartphones and media tablets -- in the Asia-Pacific region will increase the significance of this rapidly emerging consumer marketplace.

For the 51 countries covered in the latest worldwide market study by Digital TV Research, the gross number of overall viewers will climb from 5.60 billion in 2010 to 11.32 billion by 2020.


Although it will continue to be the dominant device -- both by viewers and by duration watched -- the TV set share of total viewers will fall from 73 percent in 2010 to 42 percent in 2020.

Viewing on the other devices will grow dramatically.

As an example, by 2020, 3.98 billion people will watch video content via a PC or laptop over a fixed broadband connection -- that's up by 80 percent on 2013.

Smartphones viewers of video content will total 1.53 billion people -- that's triple the 2013 total.

Tablet viewers of video content will be 1.10 billion by 2020 -- that's five times the 2013 total.

Moreover, China will have 2,890 million viewers by 2020 -- that's up from 1,483 million in 2010.

India will supply a further 2,347 million by 2020. Furthermore, India will add nearly 1 billion gross viewers between 2014 and 2020, with China adding 897 million.

Why Healthcare and Smart City Apps Drive 5G IoT

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology for cellular networks is a successor to fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology. By 2023, Juniper Research anticipates that there will be over 1 billion 5G connections globally. The technology will provide the data infrastructure for the advancement of wireless communications and for new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) -- including smart cities and healthcare. 5G IoT Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, 5G IoT connections will reach 116 million globally by 2026 -- that's increasing from just 17 million connections in 2023. Juniper analysts predict that the healthcare sector applications and government or other smart city services will drive this outstanding 1,100 percent growth over the next three years. Juniper examined 5G adoption across key industry sectors -- such as the automotive, mobile broadband, and smart homes -- and forecasts healthcare and smart cities will accoun

How Savvy Leaders Re-Imagine Work in 2023

As we look to the year ahead, there will be significant challenges and opportunities facing the Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role. In order to be successful, savvy HR leaders must be prepared to take proactive steps that adapt and evolve. "HR leaders have faced an increasingly unpredictable environment amid many organizations mandating a return to office, permanently higher turnover and burnt out employees," said Emily Rose McRae, senior director at Gartner .

Additionally, HR leaders will need to ensure that their organizations are investing in the necessary infrastructure and re

Secure Microcontroller Market to Reach $2.2 Billion

In spite of the volatile global semiconductor industry being plagued by ongoing macroeconomic and political disruption issues, the secure microcontroller (MCU) market should continue to prosper. While the forecasted total available market has contracted -- especially in the smart home, retail, advertising, and supply chain spaces -- secure MCU shipments will likely be temporarily affected.  According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the secure microcontrollers market will grow to reach $2.2 billion by 2026. Secure Microcontroller Market Development "In part, this is due to the niche nature of security demand which commands a higher value proposition," says Michela Menting, research director at ABI Research . In the short term, potential supply chain issues due to trade embargoes and global COVID-19 pandemic quarantines at manufacturing sites will affect availability. Yet, demand for security, especially in general purpose microcontrollers, will ensure the
