"This is the most comprehensive Mobile Learning market report ever published and a milestone in the industry," says CEO Tyson Greer. "Our extensive research isolated five primary catalysts in the global mEducation market: the explosion of Mobile Learning value-added services (VAS), strong consumer demand, direct carrier billing, large-scale tablet adoption, and the growing number of personal learning devices coming on the market. For the fifth year in a row, we have revised our worldwide Mobile Learning forecasts significantly upward."
This is an Ambient Insight Premium report. This report combines all of the content from the regional Mobile Learning reports into one comprehensive report. There are seven regional sections in this report: Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America, and Western Europe. Each regional section includes a demand-side analysis and a supply-side analysis for that region.
"In 2012, Asia was the top buying region followed by North America and Western Europe," reports Adkins. "By 2017, Latin America will be outspending Western Europe and will become the third-largest buying region after Asia and North America. In terms of growth, Africa, Latin America, and Asia will have the highest growth rates throughout the forecast period."
In the demand-side analysis, a detailed breakout of revenue forecasts is provided for the top buying countries in each region. The regional and worldwide supply-side sections provide addressable revenue forecasts for five types of Mobile Learning products and services including: packaged content, value added services (VAS), custom content development services, authoring tools and platforms, and personal learning devices (PLDs).
"In terms of aggregated global revenues, the three buying segments that will dominate the worldwide market throughout the forecast period are consumers, academic buyers, and government buyers," adds Greer. "Consumers dominate most of the countries in this report, but not always. Academic and government buyers tend to outspend consumers in countries that have national digitization efforts underway."
Over 915 suppliers competing in specific countries across the planet are cited in this Premium report. This will help international suppliers identify local partners, distributors, resellers, and potential merger and acquisition (M&A) targets.
