Global Subscription and Billing Management Market Trends:

Expanding Media and Entertainment Industry

Subscription and billing management in the media and entertainment industry streamlines revenue collection processes for digital content subscriptions, such as streaming services and premium content platforms. Moreover, the rising consumer interest in OTT platforms and various other entertainment media, like YouTube, is further contributing to the market growth. Additionally, the inflating spending capacities of individuals and elevating levels of lifestyles are prompting customers to opt for subscription-based entertainment platforms, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney Hotstar, which provide entertainment shows and movies from the comfort of home. Moreover, various leading entertainment providers are collaborating with network providers to expand their customer base and increase sales, which is positively impacting the subscription and billing management market outlook. For instance, in June 2024, Vodafone Idea (Vi) came up with a new prepaid plan bundled with a free Netflix subscription. According to the plan, the user will get access to the basic plan of Netflix for the entire validity period of the specific prepaid recharge plans. Similarly, in June 2024, Airtel launched a special recharge offer for the T20 World Cup. The prepaid plan, starting from Rs 499 for 28, offers a three-month subscription to Disney+ Hotstar, the tournament's official streaming partner in India.

Growth of Subscription-Based Gaming Services

The growth of subscription-based gaming services is further catalyzing the market growth. The gaming industry is witnessing a significant shift towards subscription models, offering users access to a library of games for a fixed monthly fee. This trend is driven by the rising popularity of cloud gaming platforms and the demand for more cost-effective and convenient gaming experiences. Additionally, the rising preferences for online gaming and the increase in new game launches are offering lucrative growth opportunities to the overall market. For instance, Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass is anticipated to launch Call of Duty in October 2025. The move is likely to bolster the growth of the subscription service, which had 34 million subscribers as of February. Similarly, in April 2024, Vodafone Idea launched Cloud Play, a cloud gaming service for mobile platforms, promising premium mobile games like Asphalt 9, Modern Combat 5, Shadow Fight, and more. The service, introduced in partnership with Paris-based cloud gaming firm CareGame, is subscription-based, with prices starting at Rs. 100 per month. Cloud Play is available on both iOS and Android devices and can be accessed via the Vi app or website. The rise in the adoption of subscription-based revenue models is anticipated to propel the need for efficient and scalable subscription and billing management solutions.

Expansion of the SaaS industry

The expansion of the Software as a Service (SaaS) industry is creating a positive outlook for the market. SaaS companies deliver software applications over the Internet through a subscription-based model, offering businesses and individuals access to software without upfront investments in hardware or licensing. Moreover, with the expanding SaaS industry, the demand for robust and efficient subscription and billing management solutions is also rising. Moreover, various software companies are adding subscription-based models in their portfolios to propel their revenues, which is anticipated to bolster the subscription and billing management industry size. For instance, in 2016, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. unveiled a software platform called GreenLake Central to help customers manage their increasingly fragmented information technologies. GreenLake Central lets clients evaluate the cost, performance, and security of their various computer data systems. The tool also allows companies to buy new computing services and select whether to run them on their corporate servers or those operated by cloud-computing vendors such as Amazon.com Inc. and Microsoft Corp. The move was made to generate more recurring revenue during HPE’s transition to a subscription-based business model.
