This is Ovum's high-level forecast of corporate-liable and employee-liable mobile connections globally and regionally, from 2016–21. Forecasts are provided for corporate-liable and employee-liable connections (on formal BYOD schemes and informally).


  • These forecasts assess the trend to formal BYOD schemes where employees have agreed to specific terms of use in order to use their own devices for business purposes.
  • This trend will have an impact on both the corporate-liable enterprise mobile market as well as the widespread acceptance of "informal" BYOD where employees use their own devices for work purposes on an ad hoc basis.

Features and Benefits

  • Discover how extensively employee-owned mobiles are used for business purposes on an informal basis.
  • Understand the impact that the introduction of more formal BYOD schemes for employees will have on the market.

Key questions answered
