Congestion Up Ahead? Internet traffic and service forecasts, 2010-2015

Published: March 2011

“It isn’t enough to just know that internet traffic is on the rise. That’s a given. Instead ISPs,vendors and service providers need to understand what is driving this growth and, how they can prepare and profit.”

Giles Cottle, Senior Analyst, Informa Telecoms & Media

Summary:

    Consumer behaviour online has changed significantly over the last 15 years as connection speeds have increased and innovative new services continue to be developed and launched. Over a five year period, our research forecasts the growth of users, usage and traffic for 20 individual service categories, and revenues for 10 of those categories, breaking down the different types of usage and identifying key trends.

New report format:

    Designed for sharing - This research is available from our online store either as a hardcopy report or electronic format, featuring a series of PDF, PPT and XLS files, each designed to provide you with business critical intelligence which is easy to share with your colleagues.

Overview:

    It should be of no surprise that Internet traffic continues to rise globally, driven by bandwidth hungry applications and services, such as video, file sharing and cloud-based services, as well as the continued growth in Internet users. Through our research into Internet traffic we have analysed the different types of internet usage globally, building regional and country-level profiles.

    Our analysis has illustrated that the ‘typical consumer’ differs greatly country-by-country. For example, South Korea and Japan are often grouped together due to their status as homes of “super-fast” broadband. However, the types of services accessed in each country couldn’t be any more different. Our research identifies a number of other important trends over the five-year forecast period, including the changing face of online piracy, the role of social gaming and the increasing importance of online video on to connected devices beyond the PC.

    By understanding what services will consume bandwidth and generate revenues over the next five years, users of this analysis will be able to look at which services could offer revenue generation opportunities, as well as help them understand more about the network equipment, software and strategies they should employ to ease the strain. In addition, you can also benchmark usage of your own network against our predictions.
