JupiterResearch’s latest Worldwide Online Population Forecast predicts that the worldwide online population will reach 1.5bn by 2011 (from 1.1bn in 2006), writes eMarketer. According to the forecast 22% of the world’s population will be online, with most growth coming from Brazil, Russia, India and China. As growth slows in the mature markets of the US, Canada, Japan and Western Europe share of global online internet users is likely to fall in these regions: only 17% of all internet users will live in the US by 2011 down from 21% in 2006. eMarketer estimate that there were 1.1bn internet users in 2006 with numbers set to reach 1.3bn for this year – these figures are in line with recent studies produced by both Morgan Stanley and The International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
