In 2019 the mobile industry continues to evolve and is moving very fast, especially in terms of mobile technologies and infrastructure developments.
Despite the industry hype and discussion surrounding 5G - there is also still a lot of growth ahead for LTE 4G infrastructure deployment. In 2019 4G still only accounts for around 50% mobile technology market share globally and is required for the impending transition to 5G.
4G LTE is also expected to carry most of the mobile traffic for at least the next decade - alongside a slow transition to 5G. Eventually, however, it will be 5G which will be required to meet the growing demands of the mobile sector – especially with the escalating developments in IoT and M2M.
Overall mobile subscriber growth will continue to come from the developing markets with China and India in particular leading this growth, albeit at a slower level than in recent years. Some of the large developed markets are also still experiencing solid growth, with the USA for example remaining strong. AT&T continues its dominance as one the most successful operators worldwide.
The emerging markets are slowly gaining traction in terms of mobile broadband penetration, reaching over 60% while the developed markets have well and truly surpassed 100%.
This BuddeComm report provides useful information and statistics on the current global mobile market including subscriber statistics for both mobile and mobile broadband. It provides global statistics on mobile revenue and CAPEX, mobile data and the leading operators. It discusses key trends influencing the sector, supported by country case studies.

As usual, you’ve done a splendid job of bringing an industry well and truly into the spotlight.
I think that without your input and passion, Australia would have barely scratched the surface of the benefits that can and will be achieved with the wholesale adoption of Smart Grid and Smart City concepts.
