Mobile Internet: Smartphones for Everyone?

The 2 billion who earn less than $5.00 a day will remain offline for decades

Publication Cover

With the smartphone market now approaching saturation in all developed internet economies, attention is now turning to developing and emerging economies. The bottom line is will mobile really go all the way – that is, will everyone really have mobile, one day?

We estimate that at the end of 2015 a total of 2.6 billion individuals were active smartphone users. Given that the worldwide population at the end of 2015 was 7.3 billion then this implies a penetration level of 2.6/7.3 billion, or 35.6%. This is the narrative used by those who believe that practically everyone will have a smartphone, one day.

Nakono’s position is different: based on 2015 figures our analysis is that the long-term addressable market for mobile is around 4.1 billion, not 7.3 billion and the poorest 2 billion may never have mobile internet – where ‘never’ means many decades.

Gartner

Selected Data

Data

The aspect of most interest concerns PC shipments, which have been captured back as far as 2001 and are shown by vendor for a number of regions and countries.
Here we can see the rise and fall of not just the PC but the von Neumann computing architecture which has dominated the field of computing since 1945: looking ahead it is becoming clear that personal computing is not just shifting to mobile but also to a new computation paradigm that will be better optimised for the specific needs of AI applications and services.

Personal Assistants

Making existing tasks easier and enabling use cases that were previously impossible

Publication Cover

Sometimes we become so conditioned with how a product is used that we find it hard to imagine anything else. Initial scepticism of self-driving car technology is one example where extreme familiarity and habitual behaviour can bias our assessment of something that is radically different. Another example – the subject of this research – concerns the way we interact with computers, which presently involves the use of a keyboard, mouse and touchpad.

In the future, when we look back, we will wonder how we ever managed with such a crude and limiting user interface. Based partly on ongoing research in leading academic and industry R&D labs, as well as our own unique insights this report takes the reader step by step on a journey from the mouse-keyboard computer interface that is pervasive today to a future which looks very different.

Driverless and Driver-assisted Cars

From low-profile testing on deserted airfields to mass deployment

Publication Cover

The mass deployment of driverless cars will transform the worldwide automotive industry on a staggering scale. A 80-90% reduction in the cost of accident-related deaths, injuries and vehicle damage will decimate the $460 billion personal car insurance market while the automotive spare parts and car repairs markets will experience major contraction. A slow but sure move away from the concept of car ownership towards a model that involves paying for transport services will mean that annual cars sales will fall. This will not just affect the leading auto makers, who will experience of period of consolidation and M&A activity, but related industries will be affected as well - such as companies who provide finance for new car purchases.

This report will take you on a guided tour of the driverless car and driver-assisted car markets. The report explains what all the major actors are doing and where they are headed while also presenting a detailed description of what the future will look like when the thought of driving a car to work will seem as strange as the thought of lighting a fire in order to cook a meal.

Smart Homes: Clear Potential, But Too Many Cooks?

With fragmentation rife, and the leading vendors determined to go it alone progress will be slow

Publication Cover

It would be great to be able use your smartphone to turn the oven on when you're out of the house – because you forgot to do that when you left an hour ago. Or how about speaking into your smartwatch to check you turned the heating off while you're on the way to the airport.

These are basic use cases for the smart home, but they are not easy today partly because the sprawling structure of the smart homes market has led to the various interest groups coalescing into silos which are working to ?steer the fledgling market in their direction. But another reason why simple use cases have been so hard to execute is that the first purpose-designed operating systems for the smart home only arrived on in 2015, and market participants are still trying to understand how to react.

Up to now, it has seemed that mostly everyone has wanted to own the smart homes market, but in the clamour for control the casualty has been the user experience and a market which is growing more slowly than could have been the case.

The smart homes sector might evolve rather like the gaming industry or mobile industry, where a small number of 'vertical silos' have formed but which are basically incompatible. This would mean that appliance and home electricals vendors would either need to decide which platform to support, or to add ‘multi-mode’ functionality to their products.

This reports looks at the smart home market as it stands today and presents a rich narrative for how it will evolve in the future. The various industry and vendor standards initiatives are reviewed and forecasts are presented for how the market will grow into 2022.

Importantly, the report also contains extensive use cases and practical illustrations of how the smart home will operate in the future.
