Mary Meeker is a badass researcher, famous in some circles. Her annual internet trends report is understood to be a sort of “State of Affairs.” She’s known for covering a huge breadth of research every year in under 20mins (she advertises “1 trend/minute” but runs over a little :-) She presented her 2012 findings in June at the All Things D Conference.
A year later, it’s clear that her analysis is spot-on.
Anyway, tonight at Stanford, BASES, Meeker updated her 2012 presentation to include year-end trends. It’s a fast-moving world, and a lot happens in 6 months. Fascinating stuff (if you give a shit, which I do :-), including…
- 78% of the US is online, compared to 45% of Brazil and 37% of Mexico
- Nine nations (including ones I wouldn’t expect, like Belgium and Japan) have national debts that exceeding that of the US.
- global mobile Internet traffic is 13% of overall Internet traffic, up 10% from earlier this year (plus a whole lotta people went mobile for Black Friday :-)
- iOS + Android = 45% of Operating System Global Market Share, leaving 35% to Windows
- The adoption rate of Android phones in the first 16 quarters after launch is 6 x’s that of iPhones, selling more than 600 million handsets compared with Apple’s 100 million
- Tablet growth leaves smart phone Growth in the dust (3 x’s as fast), which had dusted iPod growth
Below the full presentation is embedded. I combed through these 88 slides with great curiosity, but you may want to just check out other summaries like the coverage from CNET, VentureBeat, or TechCrunch.
