El GSMA describe el estado del sector de la tecnología móvil en un nuevo informe

 

- "The Mobile Economy 2013" (La economía móvil de 2013) detalla el impacto socio económico del móvil y destaca factores del futuro crecimiento para el sector móvil

BARCELONA, España, 25 de febrero de 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  El GSMA publica hoy un nuevo informe, "The Mobile Economy 2013", que proporciona una visión integral del sector móvil actual y describe las oportunidades clave y los retos del sector de la tecnología móvil para los próximos cinco años. Desarrollado por el GSMA y A.T. Kearney, el amplio estudio ofrece importantes percepciones de la salud del sector de las comunicaciones móviles y detalla los catalizadores globales necesarios para estimular inversiones adicionales y el crecimiento en el sector. Con un número de abonados móviles que asciende a 3,2 mil millones de personas, en la actualidad, casi la mitad de la población mundial utiliza las comunicaciones móviles[1]. Se espera que en el año 2017 se sumará 700  millones más de abonados y se llegará al hito de 4 mil millones de abonados en el año 2018.

"La tecnología móvil es un sector vibrante y en evolución que forma parte importante del día a día de miles de millones de personas en todo el mundo", afirmó Anne Bouverot, Directora General, GSMA. "Los móviles ya son más que una mera herramienta de comunicaciones y gracias a ellos se puede mejorar la calidad de vida y, en algunos casos, salvar vidas y proporcionar servicios a hombres, mujeres y niños. Es emocionante contemplar las posibilidades que se abren ante nosotros cuando conectamos la población mundial con Internet móvil."

Contribución socio económica de la tecnología móvil
El sector de tecnología móvil es un factor principal en la economía global. El total de ingresos del ecosistema móvil fue de 1,6 trillones de dólares o un 2,2 por ciento del GDP global. Durante el período hasta el 2017, el sector de la tecnología móvil invertirá 1,1 trillones de dólares en gastos de capital y contribuirá en 2,6 trillones de dólares a los fondos públicos. Lo más importante, las empresas de todo el ecosistema emplearán a casi 10 millones de personas de forma global.

"El impacto económico del sector móvil rebasa ampliamente los ya impresionantes 1,6 trillones de dólares en ingresos, para aumentar el bienestar individual, la productividad corporativa y los fondos gubernamentales", dijo Mark Page, líder de la asesoría de Comunicaciones, medios y tecnología de A.T. Kearney y coautor del informe. "A medida que se amplía el mercado con el éxito de los teléfonos inteligentes, las redes 4G y aplicaciones innovadores por el globo, el reto de los operadores móviles es reclamar su participación en el crecimiento de ingresos asociado. Las iniciativas entre sectores como, por ejemplo, las descritas en este informe, serán vitales para que los operadores puedan asegurarse una posición central en la cadena de valor del ecosistema móvil."

La proliferación de móviles de banda ancha está permitiendo el crecimiento de datos
A finales de 2012, había 6,8 mil millones de conexiones móviles en todo el mundo, una cifra que se esperaba que creciera hasta 9,7 mil millones a finales de 2017. Los móviles de banda ancha representaban 1,6 mil millones de estas conexiones en 2012, que aumentarán a 5,1 mil millones en 2017, incluidas 920 millones de conexiones LTE. La proliferación de móviles de banda ancha está permitiendo una explosión en el tráfico de datos y, en el año 2012, 0,9 exabytes de datos atravesaron las redes móviles cada mes; esto aumentará en un 66 por ciento a 11,2 exabytes al mes en el año 2017.[2] El ritmo de crecimiento se ilustra mejor con este dato: los volúmenes del tráfico total en 2012 fueron tan altos como todos los años anteriores juntos.[3]  

Catalizadores globales para estimular la inversión y el crecimiento
El informe destaca varios factores vitales para el futuro crecimiento del sector. Con la adopción creciente de los móviles de banda ancha y el espectacular aumento en el tráfico de datos, el futuro del móvil depende de que los operadores tengan un acceso razonable y puntual al recurso de espectro necesario. Otro elemento básico para permitir el crecimiento es un entorno normativo transparente, consultivo y previsible, que se ocupe de las licencias de espectro, la competencia, la fiscalidad y la propiedad intelectual. Finalmente, es importante que las autoridades antimonopolio, mientras protegen el mercado contra cualquier abusos, deben permitir al sector reorganizarse y consolidarse para hacer frente las nuevas realidades económicas.

"El sector de las comunicaciones móviles está creando una economía móvil, tanto directamente a través de una inversión en redes, la creación de empleos y las contribuciones a los fondos públicos, como indirectamente transformando los sectores adyacentes como, por ejemplo, la educación, sanidad, pagos, transportes y servicios públicos," prosiguió Bouverot. "Pero para comprender por completo este futuro y para permitir al sector de la tecnología móvil maximizar sus inversiones, es crucial que establezcamos un entorno normativo propicio, basado principalmente en la competencia y desarrollar nuevos modelos de negocio que permitirán a todos los participantes del ecosistema beneficiarse de la economía móvil."
