About this report
The term “disruptive technologies” is associated with technological innovations which are generally not expected to cause ripples within a given sector, but actually do just the opposite and in fact have the capability of completely redefining an industry with their performance. As a result, they represent potent and often unquantifiable threats to incumbent businesses.

Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are facing a similar threat from disruptive mobile applications and services, including mobile video streaming, social networking, mobile VoIP, bulk messaging services, and mobile payments – all of which are discussed in this report.

MNOs have turned to value-added services in order to counter their falling voice ARPUs (Average Revenue per User) by increasing data ARPUs. And with mobile applications and services currently taking the mobile industry by storm and creating new opportunities, strategies are witnessing a seismic shift towards a stronger mobile applications focus in this quest to increase revenue.

Certainly MNOs can ill afford to ignore these apps and services. After all, this innovative and new league of apps and services has attracted millions of users worldwide and has helped both MNOs to gain subscribers’ loyalty, and to also drive the next wave of subscriber acquisition.

But MNOs need to be mindful of the long term ramifications – including that emerging disruptive applications and services ultimately threaten their key revenue generators: voice and SMS.

In 16 fact-filled chapters, this new study thoroughly examines the current breed of disruptive mobile applications and services, as well as the wider mobile apps market at worldwide and regional levels, app stores and app development.

With supporting case studies and profiles – including YouTube, MobiTV, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Nimbuzz, SMS GupShup, Square, Bango, and Boku – this new market study fully assesses the threats and opportunities that these hugely popular disruptive mobile applications and services present to MNOs.
