Direct Consumer Internet Revenues to Reach $1 Trillion Globally by 2020

Direct consumer Internet revenues are sustaining high double digit rates of growth, and are forecast to reach $1 trillion globally by 2020. The Asia Pacific region will overtake both North America and Western Europe to account for 35% of total spending by 2015 and will continue to drive and dominate total revenues.

The ubiquity of Mobile Internet access devices is increasing dramatically, while the ability to access and use the Internet over mobile devices is also contributing to the globalization of Internet use. Revenues from touchscreen mobile phone device sales will grow from $361m in 2010 to $1.6bn in 2020.

The shifting dynamics of the consumer Internet represent a great threat as well as opportunity to stakeholders. Dominant incumbents are in the most testing positions, since the dynamics of the future -- moves to mobility, towards Asia and to greater operator power -- mitigate against their established revenue base.

'Real world utility' for consumer use of the Internet today and in the near- to mid-term future will continue to change dramatically, destroying existing business models and creating new opportunities as it develops.

This report aims to highlight the opportunities and threats inherent for stakeholders in the development of consumer use of the Internet over the period 2010-2020, with particular emphasis, and quantification of revenue opportunities, on the next 5 years. It provides unique data and analysis showing how consumer Internet revenues will be segmented by region, type of stakeholder, and category.
