OPPORTUNITIES

Spiderman and MJ

Movie and video production industry

From swinging spiders to time travel, film gives us the ability to step into another world. Production companies are at the heart of bringing imagination to life on screen, and they are perfectly positioned to put the power of AI to work behind the scenes. With a continuous stream of revenue and an expected growth of 1.9% alone in 2022, the movie and video production industry is “projected” to see continued growth.

Skincare industry

Skincare has become the new self-care and the Gen Z and millennial generations are driving the trend forward at full speed. The younger demographic values clean ingredients, sustainability, and diverse products that provide skincare to all skin types. The industry is expecting an increase of $45.69 billion between 2022 and 2028 at a CAGR of 5.52%.

Video conferencing market

“I’m here live, I’m not a cat.” Video conferencing can be difficult at times, but the industry is becoming increasingly mainstream as the Covid pandemic expedited online meeting necessity. With a variety of filters and backgrounds, it’s never been easier to meet right where you are. The industry market size was $6.28 billion in 2021, and is expected to reach 12.99 billion by 2028.

  • Learn more about video conferencing as a service (VCaaS).
  • Use this angle: Focus on how Salesforce can expedite the sales process, manage subscription-based profit, and provide efficient customer service management through omnichannel.
