The mobile payments industry stands at the epicenter of tremendous innovation and change, with market participants introducing a slew of emerging payments solutions—from Square to Google Wallet to Popmoney to Serve to Thanks to the widespread adoption of smartphones, the consumer audience now has the means to use them; however, they still may not be accustomed to or even well informed about the new topography of the payment landscape.

The industry also serves as a nexus connecting the often competing interests of wireless carriers, phone manufacturers, payments networks, merchant acquirers, card associations, point-of-sale technology providers, nonbanking payment solution providers, banks, and retailers. At stake is the transformation of the consumer wallet—and the control traditional payment players have historically had over it—as well as the possibility of new revenue streams generated by data analytics, advertising, and other value-added products and services, above and beyond merchant payment fee revenue.

    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: A robust recovery by the Czech economy has brought some stability to the commercial real estate sector over 2014. Rental rates have stabilised as demand has begun to put downward pressure on vacancy levels. The market, which continues to be seen as one of the most established in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region, has also benefited from slowing growth across the eurozone and increasing intensions in Russia and Ukraine, which have resulted in a steady uptick in transactional......
  • Slovakia Insurance Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 75
    BMI View: Both life and non-life insurance in Slovakia are expected to show growth throughout the forecast period to 2018, though gains will be marginally more positive in the life sector. The market is highly competitive and generally dominated by local subsidiaries of multinational insurance firms. As such there is little scope for substantial expansion of the market at present. Slovakia's economic outlook is more positive than many of its peers, despite its vulnerability to a decline in the w......
  • Germany Real Estate Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 71
    BMI View: Germany boasts one of the most developed and investor-friendly commercial real estate markets in the European Union, with a dynamic export sector and strong consumer environment supporting steady growth in rental rates in the post economic-downturn era. However, we see slowing GDP taking some of the momentum out of the market with rental rate growth likely to be moderate over the coming year. Germany's commercial real estate sector has retained something of a 'safe haven' status over r......
  • Tanzania Insurance Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 60
    BMI View: The non-life sector dominates Tanzania's insurance industry and will continue to do so, accounting for almost 90% of total premiums. Within this, motor insurance will remain strong, but key growth will come from health insurance business. The underdeveloped life sector, with per capita premiums of USD0.78 in 2014 will grow rapidly, although by 2018 will still be worth just 0.13% of GDP, a startlingly low level, particularly contrasted with the relative development of the non-life secto......
  • Greece Real Estate Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 64
    BMI View: With the Greek economy back on track for growth, we expect an improvement of the wider macroeconomic situation to also support a recovery of the commercial real estate market. Although there are several positive indicators especially for the office and retail real estate segments, the economic recovery remains highly fragile and uncertainty continues to dominate the market atmosphere. We therefore expect rental rates to remain largely stable with slight positive trends in the abovement......
  • Thailand Insurance Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 77
    BMI View: Thailand's insurance industry is forecast to show good growth between 2015-2018 having struggled in 2014, faced with a military coup in May and a weakening currency. Total premiums grew by only 1% in 2014. Nevertheless, we expect growth to continue where it left off in 2013. This is reflected in our forecast for annual average growth between 2015-2018 of 11.7% in Life and 14.9% in non-life. Life will, unusually, continue to be the more dominant line of business representing 68% of tota......
  • Hong Kong Insurance Report Q1 2015
    Published: 19-Nov-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 82
    BMI View: Thanks mainly to developments in the life segment, which account for about 85% of all premiums written, Hong Kong's well established and highly sophisticated insurance sector continues to expand rapidly. We think that superior growth rates will be sustained through the forecast period - thanks significantly to the ongoing expansion of China's economy. The regulator has introduced new rules that seek to improve the transparency of investment linked assurance schemes (ILAS). These rules ......
