In particular, industry operators have taken advantage of lower disposable incomes and businesses trying to draw in customers. Furthermore, the growing number of mobile internet connections has promoted demand for daily deals sites. Nevertheless, as the economy continues to stabilize, revenue growth will wane and companies will shift their strategy to boosting their profit margins; therefore, over the five years to 2021, industry revenue is expected to grow at a much slower pace than it did over the previous five-year period.
