According to the research ‘US Business Spending by Size of Business and Vertical, 2009-2014: Wireless Data, Handsets, and Voice’ conducted by In-Stat, the annual growth rate of wireless data spending by US businesses is expected to come down to 2.5% during 2013-2014 with the 2009-2010 rate being averaged at 5.2%. As per the research, approximately $27 billion is expected to be spent on wireless data in the year 2010.
The comprehensive report includes details on wireless data, handsets, and voice services as well as forecasts of US business wireless spending for the 2009-2014 period that has been segmented as per product category, size of business, and vertical market in Microsoft (News - Alert) Excel file format.
In a release, Frank Dickson, VP Research, Mobile Internet said that, “The strongest growth comes from the Administrative and Support Services, and the Education and the Professional Services verticals. The mining vertical segment will have the steepest percentage decline, dropping from a 10% growth rate for 2009-2010 to a (-2%) contraction in 2013-2014.”
The research expects the largest decline in the wireless spending to be seen in the utility and manufacturing vertical segments having business size of 10,000+. The study also shows that US business spending on wireless voice will grow a modest $600 million from 2010 to 2014 with the 500-999 and 1,000-4,999 size-of-business markets showing only a slightly higher increase than the overall market.
The research forecasts were segregated based on size-of-business segments and sub-segments such as SOHO business (1 to 4 employees); Small business (5 to 9 employees, 10 to 19 employees, and 20 to 99 employees); Mid-Sized business (100 to 499 employees and 500 to 999 employees); Enterprise (1,000 to 4,999 employees, 5,000 to 9,999 employees, and 10,000 or more employees).
