Consumer Mobile Payment Trends: Another Uptick in Demand for Mobile Payments

Consumer interest in mobile payment apps is increasing for the second consecutive survey. We’re also seeing greater confidence in the security of payment apps, though the issue of security remains a key obstacle to wider adoption by consumers.

The December 12-30 survey of 4,125 primarily North American consumers from 451 Research’s Leading Indicator panel also took a look at payment app preferences and customer satisfaction.

Excerpt of full report:

Consumer Demand for Mobile Payment Apps. Planned use of mobile payment apps has increased for the second survey in a row, reaching its highest level since we began asking this question back in 2014.  A total of 29% of smartphone owners say they’re likely to use mobile payment apps over the next 90 days (15% Very Likely; 14% Somewhat Likely) – a 1 point increase since the previous survey in September and 5 points higher than six months ago.

Security is Key to Encouraging New Users.  We asked unlikely users what would drive them to adopt mobile payment apps.  Two-thirds (66%) cite Security Against Fraud that is Better Than Traditional Payment Cards as a factor.  A total of 35% say they want to Receive Discounted Offers, while 26% would use them if it helped Avoid Queuing at the Cash Register.

Consumer Tablet and PC Demand Trends: No Holiday Bump for Tablet and PC Buying

Consumer tablet demand has steadily declined in recent years. A recent Voice of the Connected User Landscape survey shows further challenges as the holiday season failed to provide the typical bump in tablet buying.

Apple and Microsoft are focusing on high-end ‘Pro’ tablets, while Samsung continues to offer a wide range of price points and screens sizes. For Amazon, the focus has been on lower-cost tablets that leverage the company’s large ecosystem.

A November survey of 2,257 primarily North American respondents from 451 Research’s Leading Indicator panel focused on how these strategies are translating to consumer demand and customer satisfaction. The survey also took a look at the PC market, including Microsoft’s upgraded Surface Book.

Overall Tablet Demand. The tablet market continues to struggle despite the holiday season. Less than one-in-ten (8%) respondents now say they plan on purchasing a tablet in the next 6 months. As the following chart shows, this is the weakest November reading for tablet buying in the past five years:

While previous November surveys have typically shown a holiday bump in consumer tablet demand, the overall trend has been negative – with each successive year since 2011 coming in lower than the previous one.

Microsoft Surface Book. Interest among respondents in the updated 2-in-1 Surface Book laptop (1% Very Likely, 6% Somewhat) is weaker compared to November 2015 when we asked about interest in the original Surface Book after it had been announced (3% Very Likely, 12% Somewhat). This is not surprising as the newest model received only graphics and battery life upgrades compared to the original model.

Application containers will be a $2.7bn market by 2020, representing a small but high-growth segment of the Cloud-Enabling Technologies market

The application container market will grow from $762m in 2016 to $2.7bn by 2020, according to 451 Research’s latest Cloud-Enabling Technologies (CET) Market Monitor. Despite making up a relatively small portion of the overall CET market, application containers will see the fastest growth compared to other segments, with an estimated CAGR of 40%.

One of the most remarkable things about the emergent application container ecosystem is the number of vendors large and small that are meaningfully leveraging or offering application-container technology and support. 451 has identified and currently tracks 125 individual application container vendors – and we expect new market entrants to emerge quarterly, including many yet to be identified as container providers.

While containers have enjoyed a great deal of attention and hype in the enterprise, adoption and revenue are just starting to emerge. Though it is still early days for containers in the enterprise, our research has revealed increased movement beyond development and testing to production use.

451 Research’s Voice of the Enterprise: Software-Defined Infrastructure Workloads and Key Projects survey conducted in April and May 2016 showed that of the roughly 25% of enterprises we surveyed who use containers, 34% were in broad implementation of production applications and 28% had begun initial implementation of production applications with containers. This is an impressive adoption growth profile for a technology that has only been in the enterprise for a few years.
