Key developments in the monetisation platforms market in 2018

  • The overall spending in the monetisation platforms segment declined by 1.5% in 2018 because CSPs continued to limit spending on legacy monetisation systems, which accounts for most of the overall spending.
  • CSPs are increasing their investments in modern monetisation systems. These systems are cheaper and more-efficient than those that they are replacing, which helps to explain the continued shrinking of the market.
  • 5G-related spending was limited in 2018. However, the introduction of 5G is substantially informing CSPs’ plans for developing their existing monetisation systems, which will impact their organisational structure, procurement and vendor relationships.
