Smartphone Streaming of On-Demand Entertainment Grows Worldwide, Says Report

BERLIN—Consuming on-demand entertainment with mobile devices is on the rise worldwide, with more than eight in 10 respondents to a new survey reporting having used their smartphone to stream the same amount or more video content during the era of COVID-19-related social distancing.

The findings, part of global app marketing analytics platform Adjust’s “The Mobile Streaming 2021 Report,” are based on consumer research into the entertainment consumption patterns of 7,000 people in the U.S., U.K, Germany, Turkey, Japan, Singapore, Korea and China.

A total of 52.5% reported streaming more video content on their smartphones while social distancing, and 12% said they streamed less. Age did not appear to dissuade streaming entertainment on smartphones. According to the report, 90% of users 55 years old and older in China and Turkey said they streamed via their phone every day or at least more than once a week.
