Posted October 13, 2018 09:16:36 I bought a new smartphone and the first thing I did was sign up for my first line of text messaging.
I never imagined it would take me a year to learn how to use it, but I’ve been using my mobile business analytics app, Mobile Business Trends, to learn more about what is driving the growth of mobile business trends in Australia.
For my first year, I used the app to research trends and trends to make the best decision for me.
Here’s what I learned.1.
Mobile business trends are changing Mobile business growth is changing rapidly.
According to research by mobile business consultancy firm EY, mobile business growth in Australia has grown by 20 per cent between 2018 and 2020, while total mobile business sales grew by 9 per cent.
But what are the mobile business trend drivers?2.
Mobile devices are becoming more affordableThe average smartphone is only around $200 now, but this is expected to drop to $150 by 2035.
That’s because of the rise in the cost of smartphones.
Mobile app developers are increasingly able to offer services for free or at a low cost, which means mobile phone users are being more comfortable spending money on their phones.3.
There are more people using mobile devices The number of people using their mobile phones for online transactions is expected of doubling by 2026.
This is because people are increasingly using their smartphones to make payments and access online services, including payments for online purchases.4.
More and more people are using social media to connect with friends and familyMobile Business Trends says it is experiencing a doubling of social media activity in Australia between 2016 and 2020.
According the company, more people use social media for the same purpose as email and social media platforms.5.
Mobile internet use is growing faster than mobile phone internet usageMobile Business trends says the growth in mobile internet use in Australia is expected for the next 10 years.
This includes the growth from the introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT) in 2018 and the adoption of new mobile technologies, such as 3D touch and augmented reality, which can help people to stay connected and productive online.6.
More Australians are using mobile technology for business activitiesThe proportion of Australians using mobile phone, email and online business software to access their business is expected increase from 7 per cent in 2019 to 16 per cent by 2040.
It is expected that mobile software will become a bigger and bigger part of business activity in the future.7.
Australians are increasingly buying and selling their mobile devices to access the internetThe number of Australians who are buying and reselling their mobile phone and email accounts is expected in the next five years to grow from 1 per cent of Australian households to 5 per cent and 7 per one per cent, respectively.8.
More people are accessing the internet from homeThe number and share of Australians accessing the Internet from home is expected increasing from 1.7 million in 2020 to 3.6 million in 2040 and to 9.4 million in 2030.9.
More women are using their phones for business purposesThe number, share and growth of women who are using a mobile phone or a personal email account to access business and social activity are expected to increase from 1 in 2020 and to 5 in 2030, respectively, the research firm says.10.
The smartphone revolution has given Australia the first truly mobile economyThe first truly Mobile Business Australia survey was conducted by the Australian Research Council and commissioned by the National Broadband Network Corporation in 2017.
The survey asked a range of questions to measure Australia’s mobile business success.
This year, we’re looking at how mobile technology is changing and how Australians are finding ways to stay relevant.
