Deloitte has just published its annual report on predictions for technology, media and telecoms. As you would expect, it offers some great insights into the forces we can expect to shape all three sectors in the year ahead and beyond.
One area that I think will be interesting to watch is the role that developing marketings have to play in shaping tech, media and telecoms trends in the coming years. The report notes that significant growth in the smartphone market is likely to come from developing countries over the next few years.
I expect the growth of their own domestic markets as the global economy gradually improves, and the increasing sophistication of consumers in their technology use will be a key factor is shaping global trends and the course of innovation.
