World Digital Media Trends

The global telecom services market has grown from €851 billion in 2005, to €997 billion in 2008, according to IDATE. Mobile services include search, e-mail, weather, news, photos, sports, maps and other non-data download services, detailed in World Digital Media Trends 2010, released by the Shaping the Future of the Newspaper project and the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers.

The most dramatic surges in telecom services are in the Asia Pacific region, particularly in China and India, as well as in Latin America, Africa and the Middle East. During the same time period, the more established markets of North America and Europe have grown slightly in global telecom services.

The largest growth has occurred in Africa and the Middle East, growing 44.9 percent. This is followed by growth in India, 44.4 percent; Latin America, 30.1 percent; and China, 20.8 percent. Established markets, including Japan, Germany, France, and North America, remained stable.

The overall entertainment and media market worldwide was valued at US$1.17 trillion in 2005, and grew to more than $1.32 trillion in 2009, according to data from PricewaterhouseCoopers and Wilkofsky Gruen and Associates.

It is expected to exceed $1.69 trillion in 2014, according to the data, detailed in World Digital Media Trends 2010, released by the Shaping the Future of the Newspaper project and the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers.

In 2005, newspaper publishing was the leading segment, with a 15.2 percent share, or $179 billion market value. Next came business-to-business publishing, with a 13 percent share, or $153 billion value. Television advertising and TV subscription and license fees also accounted for about 12 percent each, or $146 and $142 billion, respectively.

However, in 2014, a shakeup in the market share ranking among segments is expected. Internet access, including wired and mobile, is forecast to reach 20.4 percent, or $351 billion value, up from only 11.7 percent, or $137 billion, in 2005. TV subscription and license fees will come in second place, with 15 percent, or $258 billion. TV advertising is expected to follow, with 11.4 percent, or $196 billion.

Martha Stone (USA), director of Shaping the Future of the Newspaper Project, talked today about the growing opportunities for newspapers through mobile phones.

"Text message advertising has become one of the hottest new ways to advertise," she said.

Stone also explained how mobile phones have become more than a way to just communicate with others. Phones are becoming more advanced and can now be used not only for talking and texting, but also for online searching, television, blogs, advertising, alerts, and much more.

World Digital Media Trends, created by the SFN project, which this blog is a part of, conducts research each year to show the latest revenue and newspaper trends. This year's study was posted in June and predicts the continued growth of digital media.
