According to the latest market study by ABI Research, healthcare, retail and manufacturing -- three sectors each with a double-digit share -- will command over 36 percent of all mobile business customer data revenues worldwide over the next five years.

Mobile data revenues from the manufacturing sector in Asia-Pacific will grow at a CAGR of 15 percent to increase its share of mobile data services revenues to 26 percent by 2014.

This region continues to be the dominant location for worldwide production of goods.
