Telecom infrastructure equipment sector scorecard – Thematic Research

Telecom infrastructure equipment sector scorecard - Thematic Research Summary Over the next five years, telecom operators will increase their investments in 5G and edge computing, benefiting the equipment vendors that dominate this market. 5G roll-outs have been slower than many analysts expected and, outside of the US, China, South Korea, and Japan, demand for 5G equipment will remain underwhelming. Also, the leading 5G equipment vendors - Huawei, Ericsson, and Nokia - will have to deal with a tense geopolitical environment. Edge computing - which allows the processing of data-rich services to take place at the edge of the network, closer to the customer - will be the main growth driver in the telecom infrastructure market in 2020.

Social media sector scorecard – Thematic Research

Social media sector scorecard - Thematic Research Summary The growth of democratic engagement on social media, particularly in a US presidential election year, has stoked fears that platforms could be abused to influence the result, as in 2016. These fears will be exacerbated by the inability of leading firms to guard against fake news and emerging threats like deepfakes. Regulatory threats will also loom large in 2020, with a focus on antitrust, data privacy, and tax avoidance. Facebook is likely to be hit the hardest, but will not be the only company to suffer. Any change to the ability of companies to gather and store user data will undermine their core business model of monetizing this data through ads. 2020 will see many of the leading US and European social media firms attempting ......
