Europe - Mobile TV, Applications and M2M Market Insights Historical


Europe’s mature 3G infrastructure and numerous commercial LTE services are providing an enormous customer base for mobile applications. Mobile TV has had a mixed reception in some markets, principally due to poor business models and customer disinterest, though sectors such as mobile payments, commerce, gaming and health are developing strongly. Improved infrastructure is enabling mobile networks to carry more data, so facilitating a range of services generating revenue for the financially beleaguered network operators.

This report reviews the key aspects of the mobile data market in Europe, including mobile TV, the fast-developing M2M sector, m-commerce and m-payments, and location based services. It assesses the potential for further growth and development to the end of the decade.

Key developments:

Visa Europe launches the m-wallet service and P2P payments; MNOs set up M2M collaboration; Vodafone launches SmartPass NFC service in several markets; M2M modules may reach 470 million by 2017, with European M2M market worth €10 billion; market developments to early 2014.

Companies covered in this report include:

Deutsche Telekom, TeliaSonera, Telefónica, Ericsson.

    Purchase with Confidence

    As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

    Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

    The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

    Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
