Global - Mobile - Market Analysis 2008


Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. While it still too early to claim a turnaround it is clear that the mobile industry is undergoing profound changes. The saturated developed markets are forcing the industry to find news revenue streams and we are now seeing other organisations such as media companies, content providers, Internet media companies and private equity companies becoming involved in this market. Either the mobile industry or the IT/Internet industry is going to be the winner here, and BuddeComm believes it will be difficult for the mobile industry to stay in the lead. This report provides high-level analyses of the current and future mobile market.
