January 14, 2018

The Report:

“Small Domestic Appliances 2017”, report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the UK market, the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes. It also provides forecasts to 2022.

Heating and cooling appliances are set to grow 7.6% over the next five years, driven by innovation in the marketplace. Grocers will continue to lose market share in 2018, as they focus on food propositions at the expense of home and electrical sales. Online pureplays such as Amazon and Shop Direct will continue to gain share, offering fast delivery and competitive prices. The most popular reason for buying SDA was to replace existing products, with 66.8% of those purchasing SDA products stating this as the reason. However, there are also more consumers entering the market, with the proportion of shoppers purchasing a new SDA product rising 17.9 ppts on 2016 to 36.5%.

It provides in-depth analysis of the following –

– Market, retailer and consumer headlines
– Market sizes and predictions for growth
– In-depth profiles of the key retailers
– Where people shop
– Why people shop
– Average spend at a product category level

– Argos’ position as market leader is threatened, vulnerable to competitors during a transitional period as a result of its merger with Sainsbury’s. By the end of 2017, the gap between Argos and its closest rival Dixons Carphone will have narrowed to only 1.1ppts.
– The growing trend towards consumers using external services for their cleaning needs, driven by an influx of low-cost UK labour and growth in full-time employment, means fewer consumers are purchasing products such as floor cleaners or irons.

Wi-Fi Business Models: Best Practices and Disruptive Trends

Wi-Fi Business Models: Best Practices and Disruptive Trends

News5050 – Market Report

January 14, 2018

The Report:

“Wi-Fi Business Models: Best Practices and Disruptive Trends”, a thematic research report by GlobalData, provides an examination of Wi-Fi business models worldwide through insightful case studies of eighteen (18) Wi-Fi service providers including mobile network operators as well as MVNOs and Internet companies. The report identifies best practices for Wi-Fi network options and monetization and describes the five key business models for Wi-Fi and their fit by operator type.

The installed base of Wi-Fi enabled devices continues to grow, driven in large part by the growth of smartphones. The technology has developed to better support operators and opened the door to multiple business models, enabling lower costs, new revenue streams and improved services.

The report is structured as follows –
– Section 1: Case studies. This section provides case studies of eighteen (18) Wi-Fi service providers worldwide, examining their Wi-Fi network and go-to-market strategies.
– Section 2: Key findings and recommendations. This section examines Wi-Fi business models from the perspective of their fit for different operator types, best practices and disruptive trends and recommendations on Wi-Fi network evolution and business models.

Scope

Key findings of the report include –
– Wi-Fi supports multiple business models for operators. There are five broad Wi-Fi business models available to network operators which can and should be used in combination (they are not mutually exclusive), though not all are relevant to all operator types. Integrated (fixed-mobile) and fixed-MVNO operators can benefit from all the different business models available while mobile first operators are more limited.
– The investment and operational costs of Wi-Fi must be kept low because the revenue upside is limited. There are multiple partnership opportunities which can help to keep costs down including joint ventures, roaming, wholesale, OTT providers, Wi-Fi specialists, venue owners, advertisers, payment providers etc.
– Wi-Fi network revenue upside must be maximized and thus sold across the organization from the consumer and business facing departments to advertising/media and wholesale divisions.

Global Luxury Hotels Market to 2021: Market data and insights on global luxury hotels industry

Global Luxury Hotels Market to 2021: Market data and insights on global luxury hotels industry

News5050 – Market Report

January 14, 2018

The Report:

GlobalData’s “Global Luxury Hotels Market to 2021”, report provides a thorough insight into global luxury hotels market. The report shades light into the key trends and issues. It offers key insights at regional level and major country level markets analyzing the number of hotel establishments, number of rooms, occupancy rate, room nights available, room nights occupied, average room revenue per available room, average room revenue per occupied room, average total revenue per available room, total room revenues, total non-room revenues, total revenues, and number of guests.

The presence of an affluent corporate culture and the growing impact of the manufacturing and services sector on the economies across the globe are expected to play a pivotal role in the growth of the luxury hotels market. Damages caused by unforeseen circumstances at a country level, such as natural disasters and terrorist threats have crippled several hotels in European and Middle Eastern countries, and continue to be lurking hindrances for market growth.

Scope

– The opening of three five-star eco-luxury resorts in June 2017 – Soneva Jani, Nekupe Sporting Resort & Retreat, and Alila Anji – has fueled a growing trend in sustainable luxury travel. Sustainable luxury was considered an oxymoron until recently when there was a shift in the trends in the luxury hospitality industry towards green and sustainable travel. The concept of sustainable travel has evolved from paperless checkouts and refillable soap dispensers to efforts in regard to sustainable development for all the value-added luxuries offered in the hotel. For instance, Soneva emphasizes luxuries while minimizing the use of junk, inorganic, and unsustainable products and using natural, organic products instead for the preparation of authentic cuisines, which helps to enhance the health of the customers. They also prioritize providing a pristine environment and wide open spaces in the hotels. These initiatives would definitely attract millennials to such hotels, and thereby would encourage the hoteliers to pursue such initiatives.
– Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld (premium clothing and accessories brand) and watch brand Shinola are two of the latest additions in terms of brands that plan to open boutique hotels by the end of 2018. Karl Lagerfeld plans to launch the hotel in Macau initially, followed by some other destinations including Detroit.In addition, homewares brands have plans to invest in properties for luxury hotels, mostly as an extension of their product and brand portfolios. West Elm, a popular furniture retail store chain, is expected to open hotel chains across the US (including Detroit, Savannah, and Indianapolis) by the end of 2018. These trends will increase and will create more competition in the market; therefore the success of these brands in the industry in the future will be highly dependent on their marketing activities.

Scope

Key findings of the report include –

Homespots and low cost hotspot deployment have increased the total number Wi-Fi areas (hotspots + homespots) from less than 30 million in 2013 to 85 million in 2016, with expectations of 113 million for 2018.
– Wi-Fi supports multiple business models for operators.

– Wi-Fi helps networks evolve by accelerating migration to 4G, freeing up spectrum for refarming and can form part of future heterogeneous networks and 5G. Wi-Fi or not, unlicensed spectrum will form part of future LTE and 5G networks.
