Frost & Sullivan anticipates the demand for mobile content services in South Africa to increase because of rising customer awareness about the availability of multiple services and applications.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, (mobileandwireless.frost.com), South African Mobile Content Services Market, finds that the market is set to grow by an average of 15% up until 2013.
Content users are no longer just downloading content, they are sharing, personalising and creating content. At the same time, mobile content services are moving towards business communication and mobile advertising.
"The future of mobile content services is in transition from SMS and MMS to instant messaging, media and video blogging," notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Lindsey Mc Donald. "Building of mobile content communities and sharing of video clips is becoming a norm."
Consumers and corporate users are using content services as a form of communication with clients and as a way of building communities.
However the difficulty in differentiating among mobile content services is proving to be a hindrance for companies operating in this market. Mobile content providers offer similar products making market penetration and customer loyalty a challenge.
"Continuous innovation and provision of quality customers service is one way mobile content providers can differentiate their services in the market," explains Mc Donald. "Creating a variety of customised services based on customers' needs would be an effective approach to use when creating content."
