Changing regulations in favor of m-commerce is enhancing the adoption of this service in many countries. Thus, the increasing adoption of m-commerce is an emerging trend in the Global Mobile VAS market.

One of the main drivers in this market is the increasing adoption of smartphones and tablets. The increasing adoption of smartphones and tablets is enhancing the demand and usage of mobile VAS.
