Forecasts on the subscription economy

UBS Global released data suggesting that the subscription economy to expand into a USD 1.5 trillion market by 2025, implying an average annual growth rate of 18%. Over the long run, they expect subscriptions as a trend to broaden and gather significant traction in emerging markets.

Experts from UBS forecast that, at the moment, the subscription economy is just getting started, and use cases are likely to continue evolving as the technology develops. It is suggested that a relevant driver is 5G, which should spur subscription businesses in latency-specific areas such as cloud gaming and autonomous driving. 

One telling example is how manufacturing industries have, with the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, adopted digital twin services and equipment-as-a- service models throughout the production process. Also, by maximizing resource efficiency and reducing waste, subscriptions can promote sustainability in the long term.
