This IDC study analyzes the U.S. mobile consumer and business services market outlook for 2019–2023. The study discusses the key market trends impacting both the consumer and business wireless market segments within the United States and examines the challenges and competitive dynamics to watch in 2019 and beyond. Forecasts for total subscribers, consumer and business subscribers and revenue, and average revenue per user (ARPU) are also provided. The analysis in this study includes the following:

  • A discussion of recent trends in the U.S. mobile services market
  • Forecasts of consumer and business subscribers, revenue, and ARPU for 2019–2023
  • An examination of the market characteristics and guidance for mobile operators to leverage the growth opportunities in the five-year forecast period

"Wireless subscriber growth continues to defy gravity, with increasing diversity in mobile device types, such as wearables, and content bundles driving gains typical of a much less mature industry," says Jason Leigh, research manager, Mobility, IDC. "At the same time, mobile connectivity faces a bit of an identity crisis as it resists being perceived as a commodity, and mobile operators will need to innovate to find new indispensable services for consumers and business, potentially enabled by 5G, to bolster their mature revenue profile."
