Worldwide Business Mobile Data Service Upside

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.

By 2014, enterprise data revenues derived from messaging, mobile broadband access, and applications will reach nearly $27 billion.

Enterprise practice director Dan Shey says, "Manufacturing and retail are the second and third largest employment industries in the public/private sector worldwide (after agriculture). Healthcare also employs many people and is rapidly mobilizing -- it will experience one of highest growth rates in mobile data services revenue."

But, apparently mobile data services revenue share by sector will vary on a region-by-region basis.

The transportation and warehousing sector in North America has a smaller share of mobile data services revenue than more dominant verticals of government and healthcare.

However, it will experience the highest growth at 23 percent, as this sector expands use of data services to improve operations efficiencies.

Construction in the Middle East has slowed from its breakneck pace but it still an important sector maintaining 12 percent of mobile data service revenues through 2014.

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.

Strategic Digital Transformation Spending Trends

Looking ahead, many Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) continue to selectively invest in new strategic digital transformation projects that enable a significant competitive advantage. Some additional investments may go towards improving existing IT infrastructure and operations.  Worldwide IT spending is now projected to total $4.5 trillion in 2022 -- that's an increase of 3 percent from 2021, according to the latest updated estimate by Gartner. For now, most CIOs will be relieved that their budget is safe from major cuts. While IT spending is expected to grow in 2022, it will be at a slower pace than in 2021 -- partly due to a 5 percent cutback on spending for personal computers, media tablets, and printers.
