Research and Markets Logo

The new Carrier Billing research report presents an independent analysis of the future evolution of this key market. It provides a comprehensive study of the growth of the carrier billing market, key verticals it is used in, and emerging trends in both developed and developing markets.

Carrier billing spend will reach $122 billion globally by 2027; rising from $70 billion in 2023. This growth of 74% over the next four years will be driven by carrier billing expanding beyond content and into physical goods and ticketing.

Whilst digital games and video will account for almost 60% of global carrier billing spend by 2027, the report identified digital ticketing as the fastest-growing area - a key focus for carrier billing platforms and operators over the next four years. Maas (Mobility-as-a-Service) subscription platforms will be a vital driver of growth.

Carrier billing platforms and operators must look to partner with emerging transport solutions, such as multimodal transport. The subscription-based service is ideally suited to carrier billing owing to the recurring nature of spend aligning to the payment of mobile bills.

Whilst accounting for only 2% of global mobile subscribers, it will account for 12% of global carrier billing spend by 2027. A preference for cash amongst consumers and concerns about using payment cards online will drive users to increasingly adopt carrier billing. As such, carrier billing platforms must accelerate their partnerships with online retail merchants, enabling retailers to offer carrier billing payment solutions, and additionally benefit from Japan's higher-than-average carrier billing spend.
