MOBILE WALLETS ON THE RISE

 More Than 100 Million Americas Will Use Mobile Proximity Payments In 2021 See the article here.

Convenience is the key idea here. Mobile wallets are growing in popularity and if your commerce platform cannot handle this in-person, you may want to rethink this. Just the other day I went for a jog in the blazing sun and I wanted to buy some water at a local store. Yes, I had my phone. No, I didn’t have a card or cash. Result= Looking for a water fountain. Case in point.

Global Signage Market Growth Sustained By Increased Focus On Outdoor Digital Ads  See the article here.

Globally the demand for digital out of home is rapidly growing, with outdoor signage to account for 60% of the global market share by 2031. This demand is being generated by the demand for more eco-friendly advertising, the rising adoption of monetization of ad space by retailers and venues, as well as tech advances with the introduction of 4k and 8k resolution screens.
