Introduction

The US installed base for Internet-connected video devices is on track to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 2.3% from 2021 to 2026, falling only slightly behind the growth of broadband households at broadband. Kagan’s forecast calls for a relatively stable number of 8.5 devices per broadband household throughout the forecast, reflecting a saturation point for streaming video devices.

Kagan estimates that connected video devices in the United States topped one billion for the first time in 2021, proof that consumers have fully embraced the streaming revolution. The ubiquity of streaming hardware in the US, at nearly 3 devices per person, adds context to the content segment’s drift towards ad-supported models. Subscription services have served the segment well so far, but there is an opportunity to further monetize this vast universe of devices through low-cost and free services.

Among the devices in our analysis, smart TVs have the highest growth potential as vendors and end users fully embrace online platforms for their primary viewing. The game console segment presents the highest risk of contraction, as cloud gaming begins to make discrete and dedicated gaming hardware redundant.

Streaming media players and sticks still have some opportunity to grow as a low-cost way to upgrade an older TV, but major smart TV vendors’ focus on proprietary FAST services will spur solutions material with long-term potential, offsetting the need for external services. devices.

Note that some devices in this analysis, especially game consoles and streaming media devices, could be connected to the same TV or smart TVs, which already have built-in streaming capabilities.

smartphones

More than just a voice communication tool, smartphones have become consumer staples that have supplanted desktop computers for many applications. These devices are so common that the vast majority of US consumers already own at least one, making population growth the primary driver of smartphone installed base growth, which is estimated at 1.1% CAGR from 2021 to 2026. .

In recent years, carriers have heavily promoted 5G while simultaneously phasing out old 2G and 3G services in a bid to push consumers towards newer 5G smartphones. This helped boost the growth of the installed base of smartphones, albeit slightly, as it attracted holdouts who were still using basic phones.

Looking at smartphone users by operating system shows that Alphabet Inc.’s Android took the lead in 2010 and has held it ever since. Apple Inc.’s iOS is close behind and steadily gaining ground since 2018. By the end of 2022, we expect user shares of 56% and 41% for Android and iPhone, respectively.

PCs and tablets

The growth of PCs is slowing as the functionality of smartphones and tablets improves and expands, slowly encroaching into the realm of the home computer as lighter computing tasks are increasingly performed on mobile devices. In 2020 and 2021, tablets were used more than ever as productivity devices for school work and business, as they were adequate for tasks that did not require the powerful computing performance of a traditional desktop or laptop computer. .

Beyond productivity, a significant portion of the increased demand for tablets during this period was driven by the need for entertainment, although this trend has leveled off with the reopening of public spaces. This is expected to result in a 7.7% year-over-year decline in the installed base of tablets by the end of 2022 and a nearly flat CAGR of 0.2% from 2021 to 2026.

Consumer tablet users (including 4G/5G and Wi-Fi only models) are expected to exceed 150 million by the end of 2022, with the iPad still leading in terms of share with around half of the total. The tablet space is mostly a three-way race between Apple, Amazon.com Inc., and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. since 2017.

SNL Picture

The installed base of PCs also saw an uptick in 2020 as working from home and remote learning became the norm, but this trend did not continue for long, as did tablets. PCs will continue to be challenged by tablets and smartphones in the future, especially as consumers decide whether PCs are strictly necessary in the modern home beyond gaming. PC installed base growth is expected to reach a CAGR of 0.3% from 2021 to 2026, remaining just ahead of tablets.

Smart TVs

Smart TVs are one of the fastest growing product groups among internet-connected video devices, having replaced traditional HDTVs on store shelves and now accounting for more than half of all TVs in homes. Americans. Smart TV shipments fell in 2021 due to continued component shortages, but are expected to return to growth through 2026, with the installed base expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% over the same period, while TVs 4K and 8K smart phones continue to replace traditional HDTVs.

SNL Picture

The growing availability of 4K video content, through online streaming services as well as through physical media such as Ultra HD Blu-ray, has made upgrading to 4K very attractive to US consumers. This helps support the expansion of the installed base of 4K and 8K TVs in the US, which in turn supports the overall installed base of TVs, which is expected to grow more slowly at an estimated CAGR of 0.4% on the same period.

More details on the US TV installed base and shipments through 2026 can be found here.

Streaming Media Devices

The combined markets for streaming media players and streaming sticks, also known as streaming media devices or SMDs, have grown rapidly over the past decade, but growth is slowing as increasingly capable smart TVs compensate Requirement. We expect the combined installed base to grow at a CAGR of 2.9% versus forecast to reach 127.5 million units.

Streaming media players, such as Roku Inc.’s Roku box and Apple TV, held the lion’s share of the SMD installed base in 2018, but their value proposition has declined as streaming stick performance more affordable were improving. We expect the installed base to remain heavily weighted towards the sticks during the forecast.

SNL Picture

Game consoles

The game console market merged with the world of connected video devices in 2006 when Sony Group Corp. and Microsoft Corp. began selling downloadable movies through the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The number of connected consoles skyrocketed after Netflix Inc. launched as an app for Xbox 360 in 2008, PS3 in 2009 and Wii in 2010. Soon other streaming services followed suit and launched their apps on consoles.

Like tablets, game consoles saw a surge in installed base growth early in the pandemic due to high demand for entertainment from consumers stuck at home.

SNL Picture

However, the installed base of game consoles in the United States is expected to decline at a CAGR of 0.3% from 2021 to 2026, as games gradually shift to the cloud. Cloud gaming is accessible through smart TVs, streaming media devices, smartphones, and other hardware that many consumers already own, and we expect this momentum to slightly offset game console demand over the course of the year. forecasts.

The United States will likely enter this transition faster than other markets due to its high penetration of streaming-enabled devices and because many of the major cloud gaming operators, including Microsoft, are based in the United States. United and focus on their domestic market.

THE decision to take a business computing course at Northern Regional College is paying off for a teenager from Ballymena.

Tiernan Graham Da-Cruz, who is in the second and final year of a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Information Technology/Computer Science at the College, said the course offers great opportunities for anyone interested in a career in computing. .

He said, “It has given me so many enjoyable and rewarding experiences, including attending workshops and work experience opportunities. Classroom team building activities are not only fun, but also great learning experiences.

Earlier this year, Tiernan and his classmates participated in the week-long Catalyst Generation Innovation program at Catalyst’s Titanic Quarter facility, which is a work-experience program for ambitious 17-18-year-olds interested in improve for the jobs of the future. .

Participants receive training in design thinking and learn to work in teams to develop new solutions and communicate their ideas.

College computer science professor Emma Butler explained what the Generation Innovation program involved: “Students were divided into teams and assigned a company to work with for the duration of the program.

“Each team had to use their design, creativity and innovation capabilities to come up with a solution to a specific problem given to them by the company. They then created a prototype based on the best ideas and, on the final day, presented their solution to their peers and senior executives.

“Tiernan’s team, which was mentored by Instil, a software engineering firm in Belfast, was named the overall winner.

“Each of the seven team members received Apple Airpods and a ticket to attend the INVENT Awards in the Waterfront Hall.”

Emma added: “The INVENT Awards night celebrates innovation and has been a wonderful opportunity for students to meet and mingle with some of Northern Ireland’s most successful IT entrepreneurs and businesses and see the possibilities of entrepreneurship.”

The challenge for Tiernan’s team, who hailed from schools and colleges across Northern Ireland, was to come up with ideas to engage people in tree protection, inspire tree love and raise awareness of preservation ordinances. trees (TPO).

He said: “We decided the best way to solve the problem was to raise awareness, so the team came up with a plan to create and execute marketing campaigns on Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook.

“We also created a Snapchat filter with augmented reality to allow users to virtually plant trees, as well as a mobile app and website to raise awareness of OPCs and allow people to donate money to the cause. “

The Level 3 Extended Diploma is an academic equivalent of three A Levels.

The two-year full-time course is a recognized progression route to university and is highly valued by employers.

Looking to the future, Tiernan would like to pursue a higher level apprenticeship as a stepping stone to a career in the IT sector.

Tiernan said he wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the course: “It’s a great first step for anyone looking to get into the IT field. It gives you an accredited qualification and covers a wide range of topics to give a good introduction to various aspects of computing. It also provides you with other important life skills such as communication, project and time management, teamwork, motivation, and leadership skills.

“All of these skills and experiences have helped me become more confident and it will help me in the future.”

He added, “I have benefited so much from the various opportunities, such as the Catalyst Innovation program, and made many valuable friends and relationships that I would not have made without the course.

In addition to the Level 3 Extended Computing/Computing Diploma, Northern Regional College offers a range of full-time and part-time Computing/Computing courses from Level 1 up to and including the Foundation Diploma.

Applications are now invited for ICT Essential Skills courses (Levels 1 and 2) which will start in January 2023. For more information on all courses, go to www.nrc.ac.uk.
