Mobile adult content revenues $3.5bn by 2010
November 28, 2007
The increasing adoption of streamed video and video chat services, fuelled by a sharp rise in the adoption of 3G services, will push revenues derived from mobile adult services to nearly $3.5 billion by 2010, according to a report by Juniper Research.
The report also found that a significant proportion of new revenues were expected to hail from the relatively underdeveloped North American markets, despite the existing restrictions on on-portal content.
According to report author Dr Windsor Holden, “While operators in the US and Canada are still very reluctant to introduce age-verification systems and offer adult content, it is a completely different story off-portal with a number of service providers now offering D2C content and services aimed at those markets.
