Cellular connections touch 2.5 billion mark

9/08/2006 01:44:00 PM, posted by anand

Currently there are about 2.5 billion cellular connections the world over. Most of the growth is coming in from emerging markets. It took 20 years to reach the 1 billion connection mark, and just 3 years to reach the 2 billion mark.

The top ten countries for volume of new connections over the last year were China, India, Russia, USA, Pakistan, Ukraine, Brazil, Indonesia, Nigeria and Bangladesh. Between them, they account for over half of the growth in the world cellular market over the last 12 months.

A quarter of the growth is coming from China and India. China’s market is still expanding at more than 5 million new connections per month. India has moved rapidly up the top ten list, with the rate of new connections quadrupling over the last 18 months to reach a level very close to China’s.
