|Maimi, November 2017 According to the latest GSMA report, LatAm countries still remain untapped and will add almost 150 million new mobile internet subscribers by 2020. Smartphone and 4G penetration (and coming soon 5G) will continue creating new opportunities for growth, innovation, and a flourishing start-up environment.|
At the same time, the Latin American games market is the second fastest growing sector in the world, as stated in the recent Newzoo report. This year the region, which includes Argentina, Brazil and Mexico, is expected to generate $4.1bn in video game revenues, a 20% growth YoY. The revenue figures put Latin America just behind Southeast Asia in terms of gaming market growth worldwide.
The boost of the mobile ecosystem in Latin America is creating new opportunities, particularly for new, small and medium enterprises that can benefit from increased connectivity to develop content, applications and solutions to add value in new areas. The shift of consumer engagement to mobile devices is also driving a significant growth in mobile commerce and mobile advertising.
These and other hottest topics will be discussed at Latam Mobile Summit 2017 on January 25-26th, San Francisco.
