Introduction

Carrier billing will grow into a $25bn market by 2020, but many barriers need clearing before it can realize its full potential – primarily in emerging markets. It is becoming a high-volume/low-margin business, largely driven by the app stores.

Highlights

  • The global carrier billing market will grow from $16.6bn this year to $25.5bn in 2020, largely driven by the app stores, OTT content bundling, and online PC games. Premium-rate services and browser-based payments will decline, and physical goods will not take off as a segment.
