The latest edition of the Subscription Economy Index™ (SEI), Zuora’s landmark index tracking the rapid ascent of the Subscription Economy, reflects the growth metrics of hundreds of companies across North America and Europe. It also spans a number of industries including SaaS, IoT, media, telecommunications, and corporate services.
In this update (as of Q2 2018) , Zuora Chief Data Scientist Carl Gold shares his latest key findings and as well as an exclusive usage-based billing growth guide.
- Subscription companies employing a small amount of usage-based billing (less than 10%) in their revenue mix grow more than twice as fast as those who don't use this model.
- Subscription Economy companies in Europe are growing at least six times faster than the companies represented by the FTSE (London), CAC (Paris) and DAX (Berlin)
- The growth rate of our latest vertical, IoT, is growing at 28% year-over-year
