The popularity of mobile applications has resulted in the shift of power from operators to OTT players and has provided a much-needed boost to the uptake of mobile content and data services. However, it is important to remember that mobile app stores still only account for a very small portion of total end-user data revenues.

The growing user preference for mobile applications means the trend towards direct-to-consumer offerings is becoming more evident and players like Apple, Google and many others are exerting increasing pressure on mobile operators to be more innovative and collaborative with their service offerings.
The Mobile Content and Applications Forecasts report is the industry authority and is the only in-depth report that provides data, forecasts and analysis of the entire mobile content, applications and data services market.

The report provides the most comprehensive forecasts on 30+ data services including mobile messaging (SMS, MMS, IM, e-mail), mobile entertainment (ringtones, ringback tones, music full-tracks, music streaming, mobile games, mobile TV and video), mobile Internet, mobile payments and banking, mobile social networking, location-based services and mobile applications.

All these forecasts are available for 13 countries (UK, Spain, Germany, France, Italy, US, Canada, Japan, South Korea, China, India, Brazil, and Russia), and also at a regional and global level.
