Research and Markets: Low-Priced (Below US$100) LTE Devices to Spread Only After 2014 Says Recent Report
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gw8zkg/mobile_business)
has announced the addition of the "Mobile
Business Setups for Revival & Profitability 2013 & Beyond"
report to their offering.
Mobile Business Setups - for Revival & Profitability: The reasons which
led us to choose this particular project springs from the telecoms
happenings globally in the past couple of years. After a decade of
extraordinary growth, when telecom players had been generating huge
revenues and had great profit margins, the industry is today at a point
where even many established players are struggling for their survival.
And it's high time even for the players that are in safe position today
to review and restructure their mobile business setups to remai
profitable in the future.
- VoLTE has all the capabilities to beat the OTT VoIP services; however,
the device ecosystem is currently not in its favour. The penetration of
LTE (News - Alert) devices is low and limited to developed markets such as the US and
South Korea. Price of LTE devices are declining, but it is still not
affordable for the masses and we expect that low-priced (below US$100)
LTE devices will spread only after 2014.
- The demand for smartphones is growing rapidly and it is going to make
more than 50% of the total mobile phones shipped globally in 2013. The
worldwide shipment for smartphones will reach 1.7 billion by 2018.
- Strong demand for Android tablets and the introduction of new iPad
mini from Apple (News - Alert) have greatly boosted the worldwide tablet market. In
fact, tablet market is going to heat up further with the introduction of
more affordable devices from Chinese vendors and the introduction of
Apple's iPad mini 2 (by the end of 2013 and most probably at
significantly reduced price). We predict the total worldwide shipment
for tablets to cross 300 million mark in 2017 and reach close to 345
million in 2018.
- The worldwide mobile service revenue from business users will reach
US$360 billion by 2018. On the other hand, the enterprise cloud-based
services would double by 2018 from the current size of US$18.3 billion
