Seinfeld clip about a wallet

Mobile wallets

Digital, digital, digital. These days, we can access just about anything on a smartphone: Flashlights, games, banking, and wallets are no exception. Mobile wallets continue to take the world by storm as the industry is among the fastest-growing in the world with a current worth of $1 trillion and an expected rise to $7 trillion by 2027.

  • Learn more about the future of mobile wallets and review additional insights along with some of the major mobile wallet market players.
  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce can match the growing potential of the mobile wallet industry and handle the expedited growth with ease. With a platform that can’t be outgrown, the possibilities are endless. Salesforce can provide the perfect multi-leveled tool that can handle sales, customer interactions, privacy, and data throughout various levels of a company structure.

Battery technology market

The global battery technology market is expected to grow to $110 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 7.8% as manufacturers compete to create new battery technology that charges faster, is cheaper, and packs in more energy.

Retail tech industry

Retail technology is a term for solutions that enable retailers to manage and optimize operations. The retail tech market size is booming, and experts are predicting that the retail industry alone will exceed $29.7 trillion by 2023. Additionally, 40% of Americans say that online shopping has become an integral part of how they acquire goods and services.

Recently funded

Semiconductor sales in 2022 are forecast to grow 11% and reach a record-high $680.6 billion. Check out this list of semiconductor-related manufacturing companies that received funding in February 2022, including more than a dozen in the U.S.

Feeling intimidated when a client asks about integrating with the Salesforce API?
