Global Mobile Industry: The New Driver of Economy

LONDON, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com has added a new market research report:

Global Mobile Industry: The New Driver of Economy

https://www.reportbuyer.com/product/2262904/Global-Mobile-Industry-The-New-Driver-of-Economy.html

The evolution of mobile phones has enabled people to connect, interact and consume information from the remotest corners of the world. It has had a positive impact on communication, social inclusion, economic development and productivity through the use of the latest technologies such as 3G, 4G, LTE and VoIP.

While the developed world is experiencing subscribers and connections growth stagnation, there is huge growth potential in the developing countries, especially in the Asia-Pacific and African regions. As fixed lines often remain underdeveloped and inaccessible to the majority of the population, there is a paradigm shift towards mobile phones.
With global mobile penetration reaching an all time high at 96 percent, almost half of the world's population is using mobile communication. Globally, there were 3.4 billion unique mobile subscribers and 6.9 billion SIM connections in 2013, with an average of 1.8 active SIM cards per unique subscriber.

The number of mobile broadband connections has also grown astoundingly to well over two billion in 2013 from 364 million in 2009. This growth is expected to continue and India is predicted to be the second largest mobile broadband market by 2016, with 367 million connections, following China with 639 million connections.
According to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), 3G mobile network covers 45 percent of the world's population in 159 countries. In addition, 4G technology is already available in some countries. Mobile manufacturing company, Ericsson, has forecasted that by 2017, 85 percent of the world's population will be covered by high-speed mobile networks.

Higher speed networks and more advanced devices are enabling the growth of various applications such as video streaming, internet browsing and file downloads. At a global level, the rate of growth in data traffic is likely to surpass the growth in mobile connections.
Moreover, the Global System for Mobiles Association (GSMA) states that global mobile operators have spent over USD 1 trillion in the last six years. Investment has been focused both on improving network coverage and on facilitating the growth in mobile broadband connections. Going forward, telecom companies are expected to invest around USD 1.7 trillion by 2020.

The mobile industry has played a crucial role in the global economy as an innovation platform for new services. Mobile operators provide unique opportunities to reach new customers and to monetise products and services. There has been an accelerating rate of new service launches in developing regions over recent years. While the health sector still accounts for the majority of services overall, recent growth has been driven by financial services, learning and employment. Mobile platforms and the growing number of app stores and innovation hubs across the world have lowered entry barriers for developers. A recent report estimated that there are already over a 100 billion app downloads a year, with the "App Economy" in Europe alone generating revenues of over Euro 10 billion per annum.

Mobile channels can be utilized to provide access to financial services such as payments, transfers, insurance, savings, and credit, in ways that are more cost-efficient, safe and convenient than the existing alternatives. In many developing countries, mobile network operators have unique assets and incentives to deliver these services.
Mobile money is now available in most developing and emerging markets. In 2013, there were 219 mobile money services in 84 countries. While the majority of services remain in Sub- Saharan Africa, mobile money has significantly expanded outside of the region. With 19 planned mobile money launches, Latin America has the second largest number of planned services after Sub-Saharan Africa.

The prospect of economic growth through mobiles is extremely bright, but it also has a range of new challenges. At a global level, one in six people will be over 60 in the next decade, which will have a tremendous impact on core public services such as healthcare at a time when there are likely to be ongoing pressures on government spending and mobile can help in delivering the health service with the use of m-Healthcare. Innovation in technology presents the opportunity to address these pressing needs of society. When coupled with innovations in big data analytics, cloud computing and 3D printing, the opportunity to connect the physical and the digital provides a unique platform to improve the quality of life and productivity.

The last two years has seen discussions about cloud computing evolve from the public / private / hybrid split to the reality that most enterprises will be creating a complex, multi-cloud strategy. Companies are wary of committing all of their resources to a single cloud, and instead are choosing to spread the risk – and the benefits – of cloud computing across multiple providers and internal infrastructures, as they follow their business needs. Will this approach be successful? How large is the ...
Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Most of the time there is a lot of work involved to move to the cloud, and most of that isn't really related to AWS or Azure or Google Cloud.
