BRIC Economies to Experience Strong Mobile User Growth, Reaching 1.64bn by 2013

January 28, 2009 at 17:15 Leave a comment

The increasing availability of broadband-enabled mobile networks, aided by falling prices of sophisticated handsets and data charges, will underpin continued strong growth in mobile phone usage in Brazil, Russia, India and China (collectively referred to as the BRIC markets), from 1.21 billion in 2008 to 1.64 billion by 2013, according to a report published by Juniper Research.

Aided by the existing strong mutual interdependence and trading partnerships between these four countries – which are tapped to become the largest economies in the world by 2050 – this growth in mobile services uptake will be able to defy the general economic slowdown and recession that is already affecting other markets and regions arguably more exposed to fluctuating capital market conditions.
