Mobile Hotspots Market to Grow by 500%

Samsung 4G Mobile Hotspot

The demand for dedicated mobile hotspot devices is on the rise. While mobile hotspot devices have been slower to take hold, the future is looking bright. ABI Research just published a report anticipating unit sales to jump from 7.1 millions devices sold in 2011 to 60 millions units sold in 2016. This jump represents more than 5 billion in end-user revenue.

 

One of the reasons for expected growth is the growing simplication of product usage. Jeff Orr, ABI Research Analyst says that, “Products were very complex to set up and catered to an IT-managed remote workgroup environment." Units are becoming easier to use and more popular, and usage should grow dramatically over the next five years.
