Juniper about: "Digital Adult Content"

Der Versuch, zeitnah auf diese Publikation zu reagieren, wurde aber immer wieder von Themen torpediert, die wichtiger, vordringlicher waren. Und so passierte auch im Kleinen, was man so gerne im Grossen auch tut: die Zukunftsthemen in die Zukunft zu verlagern...

Dabei ist dieses Thema "so alte wie die Menschheit" selber. Und wird ganz offensichtlich immer noch als Treiber solcher Entwicklungen wie der aktuellen vernachlässigt. Immer noch aus Scham? Aus Ignoranz? Oder weil "Mann" nicht wahrhaben will, was seine Wirklichkeit - beziehungsweise "natürlich" nicht die seine, sondern immer nur die des "Nachbarn - bestimmt.

Muss wirklich nochmals daran erinnert werden, dass die Entscheidung für den Video-Kassetten-Standard VHS vor allem dem Einfluss der Porno-Lobby zu "verdanken" war. Und das die gleiche Lobby vor allem in den USA die driving force für gut verschlüsselte und möglichst breitbandige Kabel-Anschlüsse war?

Anmerkungen

New data from Juniper Research has found that over 136 billion adult videos will be watched in 2015 alone, with this set to grow to 193 billion by 2020. On a global scale, each smartphone user of adult content is expected to watch an average of 348 videos this year.

Overall, video views are forecast to grow by almost 55% by 2020. While there will be a marked increase in usage levels in developing markets, net growth will be greatest in the US, with other mature markets – such as Western Europe, seeing a more modest increase. In developing regions, service uptake will be rapid, driven by increasing availability of 4G and Wi-Fi, as well as increases in smartphone and tablet ownership.

Videochat to Dominate

Juniper’s latest research, Digital Adult Content: Market Trends, Forecasts & Revenue Opportunities 2015-2020, found revenue growth to be steady rather than spectacular over the next five years, but specific niches such as videochat and web cam offerings will outperform the overall sector. The research observed that such services were being monetised on a subscription rather than pay per view basis. It cited that a significant proportion of users preferred to revisit the same hostess as a rationale underpinning this trend.

Free Content Continues to Limit Revenue Growth

Meanwhile, the research noted that in both developed and developing markets, the number of customers taking out ‘solus’ mobile subscriptions would increase. However, it cautioned that subscription revenues would begin to decline by 2020 due to the continued prevalence and accessibility of free content.

Other key findings:

Adult SMS will continue see a severe decline in revenues, with the majority of usage occurring in the Indian Subcontinent.

Content delivered as augmented reality will see growth across the period, although usage will remain the preserve of a niche user base.
