Ovum Mobile Revenue CAGR Forecast (2009-2015): Data +11%, Voice -1.4%

Steven Hartley, Ovum's Senior Analyst, Mobile practice, provides some insights into Ovum's recent research - "Global mobile market outlook: 2010–15".

See TelecomsEurope's story - "Mobile sector to generate $1tr revenues by 2015" - here. More details on the report itself - here.

Some of the findings:
  • Global mobile connections are expected to reach 7.4 billion in 2015 .. a CAGR of 8% from 2009 to 2015
  • Cost and traffic volume pressures will combine to make networks the focus of attention. Macro and backhaul network upgrades, along with the use of Wi-Fi and femtocells to offload traffic, will become commonplace
  • Total global data revenues are expected to reach $392.9B in 2015, a CAGR of 11% from 2009 to 2015. North America and Western Europe will drive data revenue growth. Nonetheless, Asia-Pacific will be the largest contributor of data revenues, due to its sheer volume of connections and the presence of significant data markets
  • Yet voice will remain the single greatest contributor to mobile operator revenues, with only North America seeing voice contribute less than 50% of total revenues in 2015. This is despite continued immense pressure on voice. Total global voice revenues will fall at a CAGR of -1.4% to $607.9B in 2015
