Mobile to Surpass Wireline Revenue in 2006

Pyramid Research estimates there will be 2.6 billion mobile subscribers worldwide by year-end 2006, up from 2.3 billion in 2005. Between 2006 and 2010, it expects total mobile subscribers to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.7 percenet, topping 3.5 billion by year-end 2010. The number of mobile subscribers will top the 3 billion mark during late 2007, early 2008.

"We believe there is considerable upside potential for our forecasts pending the introduction of new business models focusing on low-end users" says Leslie Arathoon, Director of Product Strategy for Pyramid Research.

The latest forecasts indicate that Africa/Middle East will be the fastest growing region with a subscriber CAGR of 13.6 percent over the next five years. Asia Pacific and Latin America follow closely, posting CAGRs of 10.9 percent and 9.4 percent respectively. Western Europe will sustain an average growth of 2.8 percent per year, while North America is forecasted to post a 6.0 percent increase.

"Although penetration rates in Western and Eastern Europe have exceeded or neared 100 percent, thereby signaling limited growth potential from a subscription perspective in these markets, penetration in Africa/Middle East, Latin America and developing Asia Pacific has substantial room for growth," adds Arathoon.

Pyramid Research has a positive outlook for the growth prospects in the mobile communications market. It expects total mobile revenues to surpass total fixed communications service revenues in 2006 for the first time, with mobile operators generating $653 billion compared to fixed wireline operators' $608 billion.

Industrial Cloud Computing Apps Gain Momentum

In the manufacturing industry, cloud computing can help leaders improve their production efficiency by providing them with real-time data about their operations. This has gained the attention of the C-suite. Total forecast Industrial Cloud platform revenue in manufacturing will surpass $300 billion by 2033 with a CAGR of 22.57 percent, driven by solution providers enhancing platform interoperability while expanding partner ecosystems for application development. ABI Research found the cloud computing manufacturing market will grow over the next decade due to the adoption of new architectural frameworks that enhance data extraction and interoperability for manufacturers looking to maximize utility from their data. Industrial Cloud Computing Market Development "Historically, manufacturers have built out their infrastructure to include expensive data housing in the form of on-premises servers. The large initial upfront cost of purchasing, setting up, and maintaining these servers is

Demand for Quantum Computing as a Service

The enterprise demand for quantum computing is still in its early stages, growing slowly. As the technology becomes more usable, we may see demand evolve beyond scientific applications. The global quantum computing market is forecast to grow from $1.1 billion in 2022 to $7.6 billion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). That's a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.1 percent. The forecast includes base Quantum Computing as a Service, as well as enabling and adjacent Quantum Computing as a Service. However, this updated forecast is considerably lower than IDC's previous quantum computing forecast, which was published in 2021, due to lower demand globally. Quantum Computing Market Development In the interim, customer spend for quantum computing has been negatively impacted by several factors, including: slower than expected advances in quantum hardware development, which have delayed potential return on inve
