There are two sections in this report: a demand-side analysis by country and a supply-side analysis by product. The demand-side analysis provides insight into the buying behaviors specific to the 24 countries analyzed in this report and identifies the top buying segments in each of those countries. Over 210 suppliers in specific countries in Western Europe are cited in this report.
The supply-side section provides revenue forecasts for five types of Mobile Learning products and services including: packaged content, value-added services (VAS), custom content development services, authoring tools and learning platforms, and personal learning devices (PLDs).
"Consumers are the top buyers in 21 of the countries analyzed in this report," comments CEO Tyson Greer. "Consumers buy educational apps, subscribe to Mobile Learning value added service (VAS) products, and purchase personal learning devices. What is interesting is the unique app buying behaviors in each country. This report identifies the specific types of Mobile Learning products that generate the highest revenues in each country."
Ambient Insight has identified five major catalysts in the booming Western Europe Mobile Learning market. "The proliferation of smartphones and tablets in particular has created a huge delivery channel for Mobile Learning content suppliers," adds Adkins. “Direct carrier billing is now fueling the consumer demand for Mobile Learning content. Microsoft, Google, Samsung, Nokia, BlackBerry, and Amazon now have direct carrier billing agreements with dozens of carriers in the region.”
