The NPD Group: Second Quarter 2021 U.S. Consumer Spending on Video…

Published

on

Despite changing pandemic conditions across the country, video games spending remained strong in the second quarter of 2021.

According to the Q2 2021 Games Market Dynamics: U.S.* report from The NPD Group, overall total consumer spending on video gaming in the U.S. totaled $14 billion in the second quarter (Q2) of 2021 (April – June), an increase of 2% compared to Q2 2020.

Gains were seen across PC, cloud and non-console VR content, mobile and subscription spending, as well as hardware. Console content and accessories experienced declines.

Overall content spending in Q2 reached $12.57 billion, an increase of 2%. Subscription content was the only content segment with double-digit percentage gains vs Q2 2020. Hardware posted a 12% increase, while accessories declined 11%.

Among the best-selling and most played games across all platforms in the second quarter were Among Us, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Warzone, Candy Crush Saga, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Clash of Clans, Coin Master, Fortnite, Garena Free Fire, Genshin Impact, Grand Theft Auto V, Homescapes, Mario Kart 8, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, Minecraft, MLB The Show 21, New Pokémon Snap, Pokémon Go, PUBG Mobile, Resident Evil: Village, and Roblox.

“Despite changing pandemic conditions across the country, video games spending remained strong in the second quarter of 2021,” said Mat Piscatella, games industry analyst at The NPD Group. “A year ago, in the second quarter of 2020, consumer spending on video games increased a remarkable 47% compared to the same period in 2019. Consumer spending has not only maintained the elevated levels reached a year ago, but exceeded them in key areas such as hardware, mobile and subscription spending. Video games have become a bigger part of consumers’ entertainment and social lives, factors that lend confidence to continued growth for the industry.”

Data from Sensor Tower shows U.S. consumer spending in mobile games during the second quarter increased 5% from Q2 2020. Multiplayer gaming on mobile continues to be a standout theme, with seven of the top 10 earning titles focused on real-time online play, up from five in Q2 2020.

“Spending in mobile games remains elevated, showing signs of a continuing lift from the surge of new players who flocked to the category beginning in the second quarter of 2020,” said Randy Nelson, head of mobile insights at Sensor Tower. “Thus far, we see no indication that spending or usage has diminished as consumers have begun their return to life in a post-vaccine world.”

Methodology: Games Market Dynamics: U.S. provides a comprehensive measure of the consumer spend on video games in the U.S. including purchases of video games hardware, content, and accessories. It is released on a quarterly basis and provides insight and trending into the broader consumer spend on the industry including physical format sales such as new and used physical retail sales as well as game rentals, and digital format sales including full game digital downloads and downloadable content (DLC), spending on subscriptions and mobile gaming. This assessment of the broader consumer spend on the industry utilizes NPD’s monthly POS tracking services as well as consumer data from other NPD trackers, monitors, and reports.

Ability to Execute

Innovative and savvy ecommerce platform vendors deliver on promises. The ability to execute sets companies like Znode apart.

Customer Service & Support

Problems and issues often arise during implementations, and it’s up to vendors to maintain detailed processes and policies to ensure teams are highly available and qualified to fix any problems.

Total Cost of Ownership

Once a platform is implemented, it can quickly go from affordable to unaffordable. Znode’s total cost of ownership remains sustainable and economical.

Vision & Strategy

Choosing a B2B ecommerce platform is a major investment and success is tied to its vendor’s success. Providing transparency about a short- and long-term roadmap vision and plans to recruit partners and customers is pivotal.

Content & Data Management

The functionality with content and data management enables buyers to create, store and search-enable content and data for the purpose of driving commerce and sustaining customer loyalty.

Integrations, Operations & Infrastructure

How businesses deliver solutions, perform and scale, and incorporate key partner functionality and services continues to grow in importance.

Sales & Channel Enablement

This section describes the functionality that makes it possible to enable customer-facing sales reps and customer service reps, as well as channel partners, to participate in the digital sales of goods and services.

Transaction Management

At the end of the day, buyers need to be able to add an item to a cart and check out in order to complete a purchase. They may also need to configure purchases and ask for quotes.

“Being an API-first ecommerce platform with a wide array of native B2B features, Znode is the choice for innovative manufacturers and distributors that wish to get serious about B2B ecommerce,” says Znode CEO Rupesh Agrawal. “The team at Znode is very proud to deliver a scalable B2B ecommerce platform for businesses looking to future proof their ecommerce strategy.”

ShipEngine Introduces New Less-Than-Truckload Integrations

Published

on

News Image

ShipEngine, the world’s leading shipping API, today announced 20-plus new less-than-truckload (LTL) integrations, making it the leading shipping API to offer both parcel and LTL integrations.

LTL capabilities are essential for merchants who sell and ship products that are too large or heavy to ship via parcel. Oftentimes, these items do not meet the requirements for a full truckload. However, most merchants don’t need a full truck for every bulky shipment, and they prefer to ship these items as a larger package on a truck shared with other shippers.

The new LTL integrations will enable ShipEngine users to easily ship bulky items via a shared truck, decreasing time spent on the shipping process and delivering merchandise to customers safely and efficiently. Beginning in July, existing ShipEngine users in the United States can simply connect these new LTL carriers within their dashboards to start shipping LTL.

“One of our strategic goals at ShipEngine is to be the best shipping API for our users, no matter how they ship,” said ShipEngine General Manager Jim Gagliardi. “These new LTL integrations allow us to reach an entirely new group of brands and platforms that need LTL capabilities, as well as to better serve our existing customers who need LTL.”

Prior to the announcement of LTL integrations, ShipEngine only offered connections to parcel carriers. The addition of new LTL offerings not only enables users to consolidate all of their shipping needs onto one platform but solidifies ShipEngine’s market position as the leading shipping API to offer both parcel and LTL integrations.

ShipEngine is a multi-carrier shipping platform that provides best-in-class shipping functionality directly to e-commerce stores, logistics and warehouse providers, system integrators, e-commerce application integrators, and new application developers.
