New report - Analysis and growth forecasts for mobile messaging markets worldwide: 6th edition

Report overview
Within the mobile space, messaging is the biggest revenue generator after voice. Within messaging, SMS is king and yielded the highest revenue for mobile network operators in 2011. And so fevered industry interest about changing market dynamics and SMS’ future is understandable and relevant.

One of the biggest themes under current discussion in the mobile messaging industry is this issue of ‘the end of SMS’ and the booming rise of Over-the-Top (OTT) messaging services (or ‘next generation’ messaging services, to offer just one of a great many aliases). But is the ‘SMS doom’ scenario accurate?
In addition to informed analysis of SMS, MMS, mobile e-mail, and mobile IM – and new sections on SMS hubbing; and mobile marketing and advertising –  groundbreaking five-year OTT user and traffic forecasts are included in this new report to comprehensively examine this pressing industry concern.

And, yes – our OTT traffic numbers are huge. And very possibly still conservative. But such statistics mean little without detailed context and explanations, which are offered in the report. Context that will help dispel the media hype, and explanations that will cut through the industry’s misunderstanding about how
OTT services are being used, and how popular they are.

The expansive sixth edition in our hugely popular messaging series thoroughly analyses the worldwide mobile messaging market in 12 data-packed chapters:

1.  Introduction
2.  Worldwide Mobile Market
3.  Mobile Messaging Market
4.  SMS
5.  SMS Hubbing

Mobile Data Usage Trends 2011-2015

New report -  Analysis, user profiles and growth forecasts for worldwide mobile data use 2011 to 2015

Technological advances within the mobile ecosystem have led to seismic shifts in terms of mobile data usage. But beyond the broad stroke analysis of industry headlines, there is a pressing need to understand the finer details of the surging uptake of data services among mobile users in both developed and emerging countries. Building on our strong portfolio of high-quality, data-centric market studies – and naturally underpinned by wider analysis, growth forecasts and market sizing of mobile data revenue and traffic – this exciting new report uses survey-led research to assemble country case studies to deliver invaluable insight in to the specific trends of mobile data use, culminating in a Typical User Profile for each market analysed.

About this report
With the increasing affordability, the uptake of data services is growing among mobile users in both developed and emerging countries. Furthermore, the consumption of data services has increased significantly among existing data services users.

Worldwide mobile data traffic stood at 231.1 Petabytes per month at end-2010. With the rising number of web-enabled mobile devices, cloud computing, alternate access networks such as Wi-Fi, and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) making huge infrastructural investments to improve the quality of networks, mobile data traffic is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 91.2 percent between 2010 and 2015 to reach 5,904.1 Petabytes per month by end-2015.

With the emergence of mobile data services, a valuable new revenue stream has arisen for operators. The growing importance of data services has prompted MNOs to design strategies to maximise the revenue-earning potential of these services. However, mobile data revenue is not growing as fast as mobile data traffic. Worldwide mobile data revenue stood at USD 290.3 billion in 2010 and is expected to grow at a comparatively lower CAGR of 13.2 percent between 2010 and 2015.

In many markets today, mobile users are often armed with advanced internet-enabled mobile devices, especially smartphones and tablets, and generally expect access to a vast range of previously-extraordinary services to come more or less as standard – and this has wide-reaching ramifications.

In this context, knowing simply that mobile data use is rising is insufficient, it becomes instead vital to understand the extent to which this is occurring, and what mobile activities users are undertaking.

Exactly what is the typical user doing with their phone (of ranging specification)? What mobile data services are consumers actually using, and how frequently, and for how long?

Despite the high-powered nature of current mobile devices, is it truly network-straining mobile video streaming that users are consuming, or is it ostensibly still the traditional revenue stalwarts (for MNOs) of messaging (SMS and MMS) and voice?

To attain a clearer understanding of mobile data usage trends for this exciting new report, Portio Research conducted a consumer survey (between June and mid-July 2011) to gather usage patterns among the mobile subscribers of six countries:
•    The UK (Europe)
•    China (Asia Pacific)
•    India (Asia Pacific)
•    The US (North America)
•    Chile (Latin America)
•    The UAE (Africa and Middle East)

Led by survey responses, we have assembled detailed country case studies that reveal the specifics of data use – culminating in a Typical User Profile for each assessed market, based on the respondent pool.

The above countries were selected in order to depict the trends in both developing and developed markets. The UK and the US have some of the highest levels of smartphone penetration and mobile broadband adoption, and there have been aggressive efforts by MNOs in these markets to move to high-speed networks to accommodate burgeoning user demand for data services. On the contrary, China and India’s smartphone penetrations are less than 4 percent, even though they lead in terms of mobile subscriber numbers. Chile has one of the highest ARPU figures among countries in Latin America, and also experienced the highest growth rate in mobile subscriber base between Q1 2010 and Q1 2011. Meanwhile, the UAE has one of the highest mobile penetrations worldwide.
