A survey conducted by Frost & Sullivan estimates that, by 2016, there will be 1.3 billion connected devices in Latin America, including mobile phones, tablets and other machine-to-machine (M2M) equipment, both in urban as in rural areas. The expectation is that this and other factors will contribute so that Latin America will reach a GDP of USD 15.14 trillion in 12 years. The consultancy also indicates the robust growth of the mobile industry, which will reach 705 million users in 2016, encouraging the creation of new business models related to the new emerging consumer market.
