The number of mobile TV subscribers stood at nearly 70 million at the end of 2008 and is further estimated to reach around 100 million this year, says RNCOS in its study, "Global Mobile TV Forecast to 2013".
The study envisages wide potential for the future growth in global mobile TV subscriber base, owing to the rapid developments in mobile TV landscape worldwide. On a global level, Japan and South Korea continue to be the major technology adopters, collectively accounting for around half of the total mobile TV subscribers in 2008. However, significant growth is expected in other Asia-Pacific countries such as India and China over the forecast period.
Anticipating the market potential, the research forecasts the number of mobile TV subscribers to reach nearly 450 Million by 2013 across the world, growing at a CAGR of more than 46 per cent from now.
