DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6gbkqm/asia_mobile) has announced the addition of the "Asia - Mobile Communications Statistics (tables only) - 2013 Release" report to their offering.
Increasing Numbers Right Across Asia Define Massive Presence In Global Mobile And Broadband Markets
Asia presents a massive presence in the global mobile and broadband markets. The region owns close to 50% of the world's mobile subscribers. And when it comes to the development of broadband internet Asia makes a strong claim to be leading the world. On the back of the mobile and broadband market segments and their respective capabilities, Asian nations have been busy building a formidable alliance with the digital economy.
Following more than a decade of strong growth, mobile markets across Asia continued to expand during 2012 and into 2013. By the start of 2012 there was a total of around 2.7 billion mobile subscribers in the region and with annual growth running at close to 15% the numbers were estimated to have hit 3 billion by end 2012. With some markets saturating and the impact of the shaky global economy still being felt, it is not surprising that the growth rate has slowed somewhat over the last year or so. This is after a period where annual mobile subscriber growth rates in Asia had been well in excess of 50%.
Although official statistics were not available for overall mobile broadband in the region, it was estimated that mobile broadband penetration was around 14% by end-2012; this represented 585 million mobile broadband subscribers; two of Asia's markets - South Korea and Singapore - had more mobile broadband subscribers than population coming into 2012; Japan was not far behind on 90% mobile broadband penetration at the time.
