The latest forecast from Informa Telecoms & Media predicts that annual revenues for the global mobile market will surpass $1.03tn by 2013, with total worldwide subscriptions passing 5.3bn, writes Telecoms.com. The firm estimates that the world’s mobile market will increase by 56% between the end of 2007 and the end of 2013. While it took over 20 years for the world to reach 3bn mobile subscriptions, a further 1.9bn additional subscriptions are expected in only six years, with the 5bn point being crossed in 2011. According to Informa 78% of global net additions between 2007 and 2013 will come from Asia Pacific, Africa and Latin America.
