Number of Mobile Devices to Double by 2020?

The GSMA (Global System for Mobile Association), in collaboration with Machina Research, announced new research that suggests that mobile connected device numbers will double in the next decade, from 6 billion today to 12 billion in 2020, which could support a revenue opportunity of nearly $1.2 trillion. Based on these estimates, the Association is confident that mobile operators can tap into this increased revenue stream by addressing key areas of the value chain, such as service provision and system integration, as well as partnering more closely with vertical industry sectors to introduce compelling new services to their customers. The industries that stand to gain the most from these proposed alliances include consumer electronics, automotive, health, and utilities.
