SMS still totally dominates the mobile messaging mix. Their report describes where messaging services reside within the total mobile service revenues.

Portio forecasts that even in 2013, messaging will still account for approximately 60 percent of all non-voice service revenues worldwide, and within that SMS text messages will account for some 55 percent of all messaging revenues.

SMS text messaging will be responsible for approximately 9 percent of total operator service revenues in 2013.

Across the planet, everywhere from The Philippines to Croatia, SMS is booming, with forecasts predicting aggressive growth ahead for the next 6 years.
