With renewed rumblings that Apple is thinking about breaking into the mobile payments space, it’s worth taking a look at how far it’s predicted to go.

According to analysis by BI Intelligence, mobile payments will make up $1.5 trillion of all transactions in the US by 2017. Last year, that number was just $120 billion.

Samsung Is The World’s Largest Smartphone Manufacturer By A Long Shot

In the case of smartphone makers, a rising tide does not lift all boats equally.

According to estimates from Canaccord Genuity, Samsung has shot further ahead of the pack as the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer, shipping 56.3 million units in the third quarter. 

Apple is in an increasingly distant, but still formidable, second place.

Apple’s consolation is that it still takes a larger share of industry profits, despite shipping approximately half as many units as Samsung. 

The rest of the industry is grouped around five to nine million quarterly smartphone shipments.

One notable exception is Nokia, which only sold 2.9 million Windows-powered Lumia phones in the quarter. Lumia sales were ravaged after Microsoft announced that current Lumia owners would not get a full upgrade to Windows Phone 8. With Windows Phone 8 now launched, Nokia needs to see significant growth in sales if the one-time large! st manuf acturer of smartphones is to halt its tailspin.

Two other manufacturers to watch are Chinese up-and-comers Huawei and ZTE, which have catapulted from nowhere to 7.6 and 6.8 million smartphone shipments last quarter, respectively. The companies specialize in low-cost smartphones and could make a huge splash in the market with the heft of the Chinese government’s support. Those close ties, however, have drawn scrutiny from regulators in some markets.

How People Find Apps

This chart comes from Business Insider Intelligence, a new research and and analysis service focused on the mobile and Internet industries. Sign up for a free trial here.

Search is the top app discovery tool. According to Nielsen, 63 percent of Android and iOS users have utilized search to discover new apps in their respective app stores.

While most developers focus on cracking the top 25, search is becoming an increasingly important tool in the “long tail” of mobile apps. App revenue is no longer as concentrated with the proliferation of apps, which helps explain why Apple is buying a company like Chomp to revamp search in the App Store.

A Look At The Falling Price Of The iPad (AAPL)

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-ipads-price-2012-8

This chart comes from Business Insider Intelligence, a new research and and analysis service focused on the mobile and Internet industries. Sign up for a free trial here.

The Average Selling Price (ASP) of Apple’s iPad has fallen more than $100 in the past year.

The iPad’s ASP has dropped significantly since it was first introduced, which is not surprising, but it appears Apple wasn’t able to produce a bump in the ASP this year by introducing a new model, the way it did last year.

The iPhone’s ASP, on the other hand, has been remarkably stable since the beginning of 2009, despite Apple’s introduction of lower-cost options. The disparity probably reflects the relative maturity of the smartphone market versus the tablet market, where Apple is starting to shed its near-total dominance.

Mobile App Revenue Has A Long Tail

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-mobile-app-revenue-has-a-long-tail-2012-8

This chart comes from Business Insider Intelligence, a new research and and analysis service focused on the mobile and Internet industries. Sign up for a free trial here.

Mobile apps are not a “sink or swim” proposition.

According to Flurry, the revenue share from apps outside of the top 100 ranked titles on iOS and Android will increase from 45% in 2010 to an expected 68% this year.

Note that this only includes premium and in-app revenue, which Flurry expects to account for 77% of mobile app revenue this year (although ad revenue is the fastest growing category).

The changing revenue distribution of mobile apps reflects the proliferation of the app economy in the past two years, but also a repudiation of the idea that you need to be in the top 25 of the app store to make any money.

The Latest PC ‘Growth’ Numbers Show No Growth At All

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-global-pc-shipments-by-manufacturer-2012-7

This chart comes from Business Insider Intelligence, a new research and and analysis service focused on the mobile and Internet industries. Sign up for a free trial here.

PC shipments are stagnant. According to Gartner, worldwide PC shipments in Q2 were basically flat, declining -0.1 percent from last year. PC shipments have grown only 5 percent since the second quarter of 2010, when the iPad was introduced.

Reasons for the bad numbers:

  • The global economy remains weak.
  • The upgrade cycle for business PCs has lengthened.
  • The iPad killed the netbook market, which had been driving growth for the past few years.
  • Some Windows loyalists are probably waiting for Windows 8 and the new hardware form factors that will ship with it, such as Microsoft’s Surface, a touch screen tablet that doubles as a small laptop.

Microsoft and its PC partners have high hopes for Windows 8, which will start shipping on new PCs in October. But for now, the PC market sure doesn’t look good.

Why Twitter Can Build A Killer Mobile Ad Business

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-mobile-ads-2012-7

This chart comes from Business Insider Intelligence, a new research and and analysis service focused on the mobile and Internet industries. Sign up for a free trial here.

On mobile phones, consumers are most likely to pay attention to sponsored stories or links over other forms of ads, according to a new study from Prosper Mobile Insights. They are most likely to ignore pop-up ads, even though pop-ups are the most obvious and intrusive form of advertising

The relative success of sponsored stories probably reflects their attempt to provide semi-personalized content to consumers. Elsewhere in the study, consumers cited relevance as the mobile ad factor most likely to draw their attention. This helps explain why Twitter is poised to build a formidable mobile business and why Facebook is making it easier for potential advertisers to buy mobile sponsored stories.

The Key To Effective Mobile Ads On Social Networks

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-mobile-ads-on-social-networks-2012-7

This chart comes from Business Insider Intelligence, a new research and and analysis service focused on the mobile and Internet industries. Sign up for a free trial here.

Mobile ads on social networks can work, but only if they’re subtly presented.

As we reveal in our upcoming report, “Social And Mobile: The Intersection Of Two Defining Trends,” only ~30 percent of all U.S. mobile users click on an ad when visiting a social network on their phones. That’s according to comScore, and measures monthly averages over the three-month period ending in May 2012.

It’s not all grim though. More than 50 percent of mobile users read posts from “an organization, event, or brand.” This is the basis behind “sponsored stories”—brands pay to make sure their post ends up in your feed. They have been wildly successful for Twitter and Facebook is making it easier for potential advertisers to buy them.
