Sales in the Mobile Handsets Market Increased to Over 800 Million Units
DUBLIN, Ireland --(Business Wire)-- Sept. 15, 2006 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c42166) has announced the addition of Worldwide Wireless & Mobile Market Forecast, 2005 - 2010 to their offering.
This market study provides a picture of the worldwide wireless market, today and five years into the future. The study is allocated into several regional sections: Worldwide overview, North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Japan, Latin America and the Rest of the World. Each section provides detailed information, including: information on future trends, subscriber numbers, penetration rates, subscribers by technology (air interface), subscribers by network generation networks, wireless data capable subscribers, wireless data users, average revenue per user, ARPU uplift from wireless data services, internet associated revenue, allocated by airtime and content.
Mobile phone sales since 2000 have been less than stellar. In fact, there was actually a significant decline in handset sales in 2001 - the first time this had occurred. The past few years have shown observers that selling handsets is much more complicated than just putting devices on shelves. In fact, many variables such as churn, new networks, economics and unexpected events can greatly affect sales. Fortunately for handset manufacturers and carriers, new devices with fresh designs and features have continued to spur replacement. Mobile handset sales in 2005 increased significantly to over 800 million units, driven by subscriber growth in the developing markets and the increased handset replacement rate in mature markets.
This market study examines worldwide wireless and mobile handset sales. Detailed forecasts which give information on overall sales, sales by region, and sales by technology are provided. This study should be read in conjunction with the Worldwide Wireless & Mobile Market Forecast since the handset shipment forecasts are based on the subscriber projections included in this report.
