Technology, Media & Telecommunications Predictions 2014
Southeast Asia edition
TMT Predictions’ objective is to identify critical inflection points we believe should inform industry strategic thinking, and to explain how we think these will manifest over the next 12-18 months. Our perspectives are built around hundreds of discussions with industry executives, analysts and commentators, along with tens of thousands of consumer interviews.
For 2014, Deloitte has once again taken the Predictions a step further with the inclusion of the Southeast Asia TMT Practice’s perspectives on the direction and applicability of trends in the region. While the global TMT Predictions will likely have similarly significant impacts on Southeast Asia, it is worthwhile to explore how the unique economic, political and social nuances in the individual markets will alter the trajectory of these trends as they unfold. For this reason, we have included a “Southeast Asia perspectives” section with a number of the global TMT Predictions.
As in each year that we have published a set of predictions, the core drivers of disruption in the sector remain the same: processor speed, connectivity and storage.
For the past decade, these three drivers have enabled massive advances in the utility, ubiquity and spend on connected devices. In 2014, we expect five connected devices which constitute the converged living room – TVs, PCs, video game consoles, smartphones (including phablets) and tablets – to generate $750 billion in revenue.
