Research: Asia Pacific Mobile Subscriber to reach 1.14 billion

According to Frost & Sullivan, the Asia-Pacific mobile subscriber base is set to reach 1.14 billion by end of 2007 driven by the robust growth in emerging markets.

There was a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24 percent between 2002 and 2006, reaching a subscriber base of 950 million in 2006.

From Bernama:

“The impact of the emerging markets on the rest of the region is likely to grow in significance as regional carriers search for sustainable growth, and as economies of scale further drives down 3G (third generation) handset prices,” Frost & Sullivan industry manager Janice Chong said.

“Of the expected 190 million net subscriber additions in 2007, 90.8 percent is likely to stem from the emerging markets,” Chong said.
