DCB end-user spend to increase by almost 50% by 2026
Juniper Research predicts 5G-based mobile gaming and video subscriptions as the key growth drivers. It advises mobile network operators to leverage this growth by forging new partnerships with content providers and building distribution frameworks for new content paid for by carrier billing. The study estimates that the total end-user spend via carrier billing will increase from $50.6 billion to $73.8 billion in the next four years.
The research also found that carrier billing spend on digital ticket purchases will grow by 250%, from $141 billion in 2021 to $275 billion in 2024. It predicts that the rise of new transportation modes, such as MaaS (Mobility-as-a-Service), will drive carrier billing spending for transit services by offering an improved user experience across a single app. Additionally, RCS messaging will provide an interface between MaaS users and transit service providers, offering real-time travel updates.
