Indian Mobile Internet Revolution

 

 We are certainly living in the most exciting era of technological progress and connectivity. At a time when 2.8 billion people are online (39%) and 5.2 billion people are on mobile (73%), the world has become a giant, globally connected village where all the information ever created is just a click away. Comparably, in 1995, only 0.6% of the population was online and only 1% of the population had access to a mobile.

Huge an explosion of technology and connectivity is mind blowing to say the least. But the question now arises: Have we reached a saturation point of this progress? Will there be no such exponential growth and adaption of technology and Internet?

Besides the consumer niche, where eCommerce portals and apps have penetrated deep into the global markets, there exists business niche, education market, security and safety niche, healthcare and Govt. policies and regulation where Internet and Mobile hasn’t been able to make much dent.

And as per the report, it is India which is going to be the catalyst of exponential growth and adaption in the coming years. In some sectors, India has overtaken China, Brazil and African countries when it comes to adaption and penetration of mobile and Internet; and as per the trends, India is now considered as one of the hottest market for the next wave of revolution.
