Worldwide Mobility Spending Forecast, 2016–2020

This IDC study provides an overall market outlook for mobility spending at a regional and technology level — across hardware, software, and services. The document also highlights key considerations for technology suppliers in this mature market as well as some of the drivers and inhibitors of growth throughout the forecast period. This forecast is created from IDC’s Worldwide Mobility Spending Guide, which is updated semiannually. This iteration includes data represented in the inaugural release from 1Q16.“Mobility continues to affect the way we interact and consume information in both our personal and business lives,” says Carrie MacGillivray, vice president, Mobile and Internet of Things. “The important thing to remember is that innovation isn’t slowing down in this exciting market. It is happening at an even faster pace, and despite mobility being well ingrained in our lives already, the profound impact it’ll have in the future is yet to be understood.”
