Over 763 Million Devices Globally Block Ads, Mobile Adblocking Up 64% Per Blockthrough’s 2020 PageFair Adblock Report

This year’s PageFair Adblock Report showcases just how much adblocking has matured. Although desktop adblocking has begun to slowly decline from its peak, mobile adoption is growing rapidly.

TORONTO (PRWEB) February 06, 2020
Blockthrough, the market leader in adblock revenue recovery, today announced findings from its new 2020 PageFair Adblock Report.
In the first edition of the report since Blockthrough’s acquisition of PageFair just over a year ago, the data show that the battleground of the adblock wars has shifted from desktop to mobile. According to the report, over 763M global devices were blocking ads at the end of 2019, with a large portion utilizing mobile browsers that block ads by default. This has resulted in more than twice as many people blocking ads on mobile as on desktop, driven largely by markets where Internet adoption has been a mobile-first phenomenon.
The report further illustrates significant new trends in consumer adoption of adblocking around the world, including new empirical data and findings for 2017, 2018, and 2019. Key findings and trends identified in the report include:
Globally, over 763M devices were blocking ads by the end of 2019:
527M people were blocking ads on mobile
236M people were blocking ads on desktop
Mobile adblock adoption has grown by 64% since December 2016
69% of global adblocking is on mobile
49% of top US Comscore publishers studied are leveraging the now-independent Acceptable Ads standard (which many top adblocking extensions/browsers allow) to monetize adblock users who have opted in
The majority of these work with a third-party provider who supports Acceptable Ads rather than directly with participating adblockers
4 of the top 5 publishers in the US use Acceptable Ads to monetize their adblocking audiences, including Google (Search), Amazon and Microsoft
The surge in mobile adblocking is driven largely by the continued success of UC Browser in China and India, and has been accelerated by Opera Mini enabling adblocking by default.
While Google Chrome has captured over half of the global mobile market share in less than a decade and is attempting to deter adblocking, its competitors are differentiating themselves by offering adblocking as a built-in feature.
“This year’s PageFair Adblock Report showcases just how much adblocking has matured. Although desktop adblocking has begun to slowly decline from its peak, mobile adoption is growing rapidly. Overall adblock rates remain at 15-35% of traffic in many key markets, including North America, most of Europe, and China,” said Marty Kratky-Katz, Co-Founder & CEO at Blockthrough. “This year’s report also casts light on how radically the adblock monetization category has transformed over the last five years. It is the first report to feature a comprehensive breakdown of what strategies top publishers are using to mitigate the revenue loss that arose from adblocking, as well as the technology providers publishers have chosen to work with to resolve this complex issue.”
Google Chrome vs. Adblocking
Virtually all mobile web browsers except Google Chrome now support adblocking. A majority of the world’s adblocking takes place on UC Browser, with over 400M MAUs at the end of 2019. While Chrome is the most popular and fastest-growing web browser, largely due to the global success of Android, Chrome’s growth is almost matched by the combined market share of competing browsers that either perform adblocking by default, or support opt-in adblocking as a feature.
The report also highlights the extensive actions taken by Google to stifle adblocking on Chrome. However, in doing so, Google has opened the door for adblock-enabled browsers to successfully compete and seize market share on mobile.
Publisher Strategies
The report reviews the adblock monetization strategies employed by the 100 top US publishers impacted by adblocking and finds that 56% are taking some kind of action to mitigate the revenue impact of adblocking. Of those, a strong majority do so via the Acceptable Ads ecosystem, either by working with participating adblockers directly, or more commonly, by working with a third-party provider like Blockthrough.
After several years of experimenting with messaging solutions and attempting to circumvent adblocking technologies, the top ad-funded publishers in America have embraced Acceptable Ads as the most reliable and sustainable method for monetizing adblocking users.

Knee Replacement Devices Market to Cross USD 12 Billion by 2026: Global Market Insights, Inc.

The knee replacement devices market from cemented fixation material is predicted to achieve 4.3% CAGR during 2020-2026. The quick-drying nature of the cement allows surgeons to check the strength of the bond immediately.
Press Release – updated: Jan 29, 2020 05:00 EST

SELBYVILLE, Del., January 29, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Global Market Insights, Inc. has recently added a new report on the knee replacement devices market which estimates the global market valuation for knee replacement devices will cross USD $12 billion by 2026. The increasing global geriatric population will be a major factor in boosting the total knee replacement market growth. The geriatric population shows increased incidences of bone disorders, such as arthritis and osteoporosis, prompting the need for joint replacement. This will, in turn, spur the demand for knee replacement devices. Due to the increasing sophistication of healthcare, the average lifespan is much longer than in the past, and there is an increased emphasis on quality of life for seniors.
According to this report, the primary knee replacement systems segment is predicted to exhibit a 4.3% CAGR over 2020 to 2026. The growth can be attributed to total pain relief provided by the surgery and sophisticated technologies. Furthermore, the majority of these surgeries are performed on women, which is attributed to increased incidences of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis in aged women. Increasing rates of osteoporosis will contribute to segment growth during the forecast years.

Unicompartmental knee implants were valued at USD $710 million in 2019. These types of implants are used in partial knee replacement surgeries. A smaller incision during partial knee replacement surgery coupled with reduced recovery time will boost the demand for partial knee replacement surgery, spurring the segmental growth.
The femoral segment held a market share of 51% in 2019 and will witness lucrative growth over the forecast period. The advantages of femoral knee replacement, such as increased stability of kneecap movement owing to a reduced flexion gap, will boost the segment demand. Furthermore, a successful femoral replacement might eliminate the need for total knee replacement in patients. Hence, the above-mentioned factors will bolster the segment growth over the analysis timeframe.
The medial pivot implant segment exhibited a 7.8% CAGR across the analysis timeframe. The growth can be attributed to the advantages of medial pivot implants such as improved anteroposterior stability, low contact stress and improved survival rates. Furthermore, these types of implants offer faster recovery and a more natural motion of the knee joint. These advantages will boost the product demand, fostering the knee replacement devices market growth.

https://www.gminsights.com/industry-analysis/total-knee-replacement-market  
The technology-assisted segment held an 11% market share during 2019 and will show lucrative growth over the forecast period. The technology-assisted surgery uses a robot or a computer to plan the surgery using CT scan images instead of X-ray photographs, allowing increased accuracy during surgery. The increased accuracy leads to improved outcomes in patients. These improved outcomes will boost the demand for technology-assisted surgery, fostering market expansion.
The cemented fixation material segment is forecast to exhibit a 4.3% CAGR during the forecast period. Cemented fixation uses bone cement to affix the implant. The quick-drying nature of the cement allows surgeons to check the strength of the bond immediately. Furthermore, cemented material is the recommended option for patients with osteoporosis. These factors will contribute to segment growth in the future.
Some major findings of the knee replacement market report include:
Increasing geriatric population across the globe will positively impact the global knee replacement devices market.

Antioxidant polyethylene inserts accounted for 29% of the market share in 2019 and will witness substantial growth in the future. Antioxidant polyethylene inserts use an antioxidant to stabilize the insert material. Advantages of this type of insert include reduced oxidation, which results in increased stability of the implant. Furthermore, the lifespan of these inserts is similar to metal-on-metal implants due to the increased integrity offered. These factors will contribute to propelling the segment growth over the analysis timeframe.
China’s knee replacement devices market is predicted to showcase substantial growth over the forecast period at a 10% CAGR. The high growth rate can be attributed to obesity and osteoporosis in the population. A growing geriatric population that is prone to the depletion of bones is driving the market demand. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of osteoporosis in the population due to reduced calcium intake will further boost the demand for total knee replacement procedures in the future.
A few notable companies operating in knee replacement devices market include ConforMIS, Stryker, Zimmer Biomet, B. Braun, Smith & Nephew, Microport Scientific Corporation, Corin Group, Johnson and Johnson Medical Devices and C2F Implants.

Boundary Devices Scores a Touchdown With New Mobile Ticketing Solution for Sports Stadiums

Press Release – updated: Jan 23, 2020 14:03 EST

NEW YORK, January 23, 2020 (Newswire.com) – INTIX Annual Conference & Exhibition — Boundary Devices, a leading global supplier of ARM-based Single Board Computers and System on Modules for the general embedded market, today announced that Near-field communication (NFC) paperless ticketing is now enabled in Boundary Devices’ Nitrogen Access Control product family, found in sports and entertainment venues across the country. One of the first deployments was completed in the premium suites of Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Ahead of the 2019-2020 football season, the NFL mandated that all NFL ticketing go mobile, with teams across the league turning to mobile-only ticket entry as an increased security measure and means of increasing operational efficiencies. Mobile tickets allow for greater protection against fraudulent tickets, as the trail of a ticket can now be tracked digitally. Mobile tickets also can be shared easily and allow for quicker entry at the gate.
Boundary Devices’ Nitrogen Access Control product is designed to conform to this rule, in addition to enhancing security by checking and validating credentials at stadiums and other venues. The addition of NFC ticketing technology provides customers an even higher level of security, while improving the speed of entrance. That means less time in line for sports fans and more time cheering on their favorite team. Fans can now receive their ticket directly on their mobile phone, approach their suite or the stadium main entrance, and “tap” their phone for immediate entry via Apple Wallet and Google Pay.
“Secure access control into our premium suites is one of our top priorities. It’s important that we protect the exclusivity of their ticket, while providing a seamless method of entry for their guests,” said Justin Sauser, Director of Ticket Operations at the Kansas City Chiefs. “Our Boundary suite scanners have allowed us to deliver a custom experience to each suite member and accommodate an array of different methods of entry and varying levels of NFC-based tickets and credentials.”
In order to help facilitate this process for venue customers such as the Kansas City Chiefs, Boundary Devices has integrated HID OMNIKEY® 5127CK readers within the Nitrogen Access Control product to enable mobile ticketing. HID is an industry leader in access control solutions and has proven expertise in creating highly integrated and interoperable products and solutions. Boundary Devices is able to leverage this expertise with the very popular OMNIKEY 5127CK series and rely on HID’s certifications that are necessary for the most popular smartphones on the market, allowing Boundary Devices to get to market quickly with an NFC solution.
With the convenience and security provided by the new technology, it’s no surprise that more and more venues are switching to mobile, and Boundary Devices has already outfitted multiple stadiums in the US, with more stadium upgrades planned in the future. “Technology is changing rapidly and Boundary Devices is uniquely positioned to help our partners implement the latest features,” said Pejman Kalkhoran, CEO of Boundary Devices. “With our strong partnership with HID, and significant technical expertise, we can help our customers like the Kansas City Chiefs adopt the latest technology.”
“HID is laser-focused on ensuring our innovative hardware, software and services deliver more convenient and secure experiences that help people get to where they need to go and achieve what they want to do in everyday life,” said Cesare Paciello, VP of Events and Mobile Ticketing, Identification Technologies with HID Global. “Boundary Device’s mobile ticketing offering represents the ideal use of solutions and technologies across HID’s trusted identity portfolio that deliver on this promise, while eliminating complex lifecycle management issues and accelerating the time to market of finished products for our partners.”
HID’s OMNIKEY® 5127CK Mini Reader Board opens market opportunities for system integrators seeking simple integration and development of readers using standard interfaces such as CCID, UART or Keyboard Wedge. For the Boundary Devices solution, the OMNIKEY reader board incorporates events and mobile ticketing software from HID’s Identification Technologies business, which allows sports fans to store, access and read their event tickets in Apple and Google wallet.
