The Many Numbers Around Mobile Commerce

No matter what anyone thinks is the state of mobile commerce today, the massive number of data points around it can make it look muddled, at the very least.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve received a firehose of mobile research studies showing various aspects of mobile commerce, regarding shopping behavior, mobile payments and revenue measurements.

I thought it might be helpful to aggregate some of this research into one place, so here’s a roundup of some of the recent research, sorted by percentages, to give you an idea of the direction of at least parts of the market. The percentages are listed in ascending order with the sources noted at the end of each.
