AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - March 23, 2015) - Mobile subscribers in Europe increasingly depend on a variety of mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets and even connected cars in some markets, to stay connected. At the same time, these mobile consumers are increasing their usage of mobile data, both on the mobile 3G/4G network and Wi-Fi. Although many general similarities exist between Europe and other global regions, Europe has its own distinct mobile trends.

In order to consolidate all of the information for Europe, iGR, a market research consultancy focused on the wireless and mobile industry, has created a new market study that defines the region's mobile market. iGR's new market study, Europe Wireless Statistics Forecast, 2014-2019 provides a five-year forecast for the following areas of the market:

  • Mobile Connections
  • Smartphone Sales
  • Tablet Sales
  • Mobile Data Traffic
  • Wi-Fi Offload Traffic.

"iGR realized that it would be useful to look at the mobile market of Europe holistically," said Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR. "By combining information from our original global studies that only looked at one aspect of the market, such as smartphone sales or mobile data traffic, we were able to provide an overall view of Europe's mobile market."

The following key questions are addressed in the new market study:

  • What is the population of Europe and what is its mobile penetration?
  • How many mobile connections exist and how are they expected to grow between 2014 and 2019?
  • What is the split of those connections by technology type (GSM, CDMA, UMTS/HSPA and LTE) and generation (2G, 3G and 4G)?
  • What are the anticipated global handset and smartphone sales for 2014 to 2019?
  • What are the anticipated tablet sales for 2014 to 2019?
  • What are the mobile data traffic trends of the European region's major operators?
  • What is mobile data usage today and at what rate is mobile data usage expected to grow over the forecast period?
  • How does mobile data usage differ between light, medium, heavy and extreme connections?
  • How much Wi-Fi Offload traffic (user-driven, carrier-driven, and Wi-Fi only) is expected through 2019?

The information in this new study will be valuable for:

  • Mobile operators
  • Device OEMs
  • Mobile infrastructure and equipment OEMs
  • Content providers and distributors
  • Financial analysts and investors.
