6 billion cell phone users by 2013?

Posted on Monday, February 16 2009 @ 01:15:02 CET by

Analysts estimate there are 4 billion cell phone connections right now, and predict this will reach 6 billion by 2013. Currently, the world population is estimated to be around 6.75 billion.
The GSM Association (GSMA) on Wednesday said that the “mobile world” has celebrated its four billionth connection, according to Wireless Intelligence, the GSMA’s market intelligence unit. This milestone underscores the continued strong growth of the mobile industry and puts the global market on the path to reach a staggering six billion connections by 2013. At press time the world population was approximately 6.759 billion, according to the world population clock.

The growth is driven by two primary sources: the integration of mobile into previously unconnected devices and subscriber additions in emerging markets. At Mobile World Congress taking place from 16th - 19th February in Barcelona, the industry will be exploring ways of sustaining this growth.
