TMT Predictions 2014

Advance. Intelligence


Billions will soon be sporting wearable technologies. Will this mean a more efficient personal and work life?  How will the decline of the voice call affect communication and productivity within the business organization?  Learn about these trends and other key developments in the Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) Predictions 2014.

Deloitte’s TMT Predictions are based on worldwide research ― including in-depth interviews with clients, Deloitte alumni, industry analysts, global industry leaders and more than 8,000 Deloitte practitioners.

Canadian TMT Predictions for 2014

  1. The converged living room: a plateau approaches
    Sales of consumer electronic devices are expected to continue growing ― but at a slower rate than over the past ten years.
  2. Wearables: the eyes have it
    In 2014, consumers will be wearing more than $3 billion worth of newly purchased technology.
  3. eVisits: the 21st century house call
    Patient/doctor relationships are redefined resulting in 100 million eVisits globally and significant savings.
  4. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
    Enrollment in massive online open courses will be up 100% in 2014 over 2012. Over the long-term, MOOCs will be a globally disruptive force.
  5. TV: those who like it, like it a lot
    There will be many changes in TV viewing behaviour, although the average traditional TV viewing hours may remain relatively constant.
  6. Doubling up on pay-TV
    Forget cord cutting, cord stacking is all the rage. By year’s end, up to 50 million homes will subscribe to at least one or more pay-TV service.
  7. Broadcast sports rights: premium plus
    The value of sports video rights and premium sports rights are on their way up, up, up.
  8. The decline of the Canadian cellular voice call?
    The voice call is declining for some as consumers and businesses find different ways to communicate.
  9. Phablets are not a Phad
    Part smartphone, part tablet ― phablet sales are set to nearly double.
  10. The smartphone generation gap: over 55? There’s no app for that
    Seniors will be the fastest growing demographic adopting smartphones across developed markets.
