The Global Mobile Market - Major Trends, Revenue and Industry Statistics -

DUBLIN--()--The "The Global Mobile Market - Major Trends, Revenue and Industry Statistics" report has been added to's offering.

We are quickly approaching 100% mobile broadband penetration in the developed markets and 50% in the developing markets. It is timely now to look at the trends and statistics which are shaping our global mobile industry. Subscriber growth is projected to continue coming from the developing markets with China and India in particular leading this growth, albeit at a slower level than in recent years. There is also still a lot of growth ahead for LTE 4G infrastructure deployment - despite the industry hype and discussion taking place around 5G. 4G will continue to be the leading growing mobile technology for the next few years as it still only accounts for around 30% mobile technology market share on a global level. Increased 4G growth will come from some of the large emerging markets. 4G is currently carrying most of the mobile data traffic driven by the increasing use of mobile video and this will increase as 3G slowly becomes phased out. Eventually however it will be 5G which will be required to meet the growing demands of the mobile sector especially with the escalating developments in IoT and M2M.
