Deloitte reports: Smartphone penetration in developed countries in 2023 will reach 90%

Deloitte recently released the “AI Trend Report”, analyzing and forecasting cutting-edge technological trends such as artificial intelligence and AR.

Deloitte expects that more than 1 billion smartphone users will have at least one AR content creation experience by 2018, with direct revenue of $ 1 billion in 2020, equivalent to 10 times revenue in 2018.

Before 2018, AR technology may be more used for facial filtering self-portraits, but now and in the future, chorus with celebrities, interaction with tigers, and players playing with the ball can get a more realistic experience through the AR.

Deloitte predicts that by the end of 2023, smartphone penetration will reach 90% of the adult population in developed countries in the world, up from 85% in 2018.

In 2023, global smart phone sales will reach 1.85 billion, up 19% from 2018. The average selling price of smartphones will reach 350 US dollars, up 8% from the end of 2017. The number of smartphones that sell for more than $ 1,000 is 180 million.

The upgrading of smart phones will be reflected in the invisible factors such as connectivity, processor, camera, software, AI, memory, sensors and so on.

Deloitte predicts that in 2018, 45% of the world’s adult smartphone users are worried about using the phone for an extended period of time. Two-thirds of people aged 18-24 think they use the phone for too long.

In 2017, people watch cell phones on average 50 times a day. But the real addiction to the phone less than 3%.

Deloitte predicts that the annual sales of machine learning chips for global data centers will increase from 100,000 to 200,000 in 2016 to 800,000 in 2018 and that these chips will increasingly use machine learning technologies .

Deloitte expects more and more midsize and large enterprises to start deploying machine learning, doubling the number in 2017 by 2018 and quadrupling by 2018 from 2020. However, the number of practitioners, tools are not mature enough, access to data and other restrictions will limit the popularity of machine learning technology.

Deloitte predicts direct broadcast and event broadcasts will generate more than $ 545 billion in direct revenue in 2018, with 98.5% coming from traditional industries and the rest from streaming live and electronic sports.

Deloitte expects 680 billion digital subscriptions globally (less than $ 10 a month) by 2020, including 375 million video-on-demand subscriptions, 150 million music subscriptions, 35 million game subscriptions and 20 million news subscriptions Copies

Deloitte predicts that in North America, 80% of adults use at least one type of ad blocker and 50% of adults use two types of ad blocker. This is a huge challenge to the online advertising market.

Deloitte predicts that in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, the time it takes to watch traditional television will fall by 5% to 15% in 2018 and 2019. However, this is not a critical point, but it is basically consistent with the trend of the past seven years.

Deloitte predicts that 20% of North American households will have full access to Internet data through their mobile handset network by 2018. With the commercialization of 5G, the mobile Internet will become a more popular choice.

Deloitte predicts that by 2018 there will be 1 billion passengers flying aircraft with Internet connection (IFC), up 20% from 2017. Ten percent of passengers are willing to pay for IFC, which will create about $ 1 billion in revenue for airlines.
