SMS revenues is still massive and will hit $722.7bn by 2016

New data from Informa Telecoms & Media shows SMS isn't as dead in the water as reports would have you believe, as traditional text messaging is set to generate $722.7 billion in revenue between 2011 and 2016.

The report expects a small decline in P2P SMS revenues in some developed regions and countries, though total global SMS revenues will increase at 3% the next five years.

Meanwhile, Western Europe will lead SMS revenues with $174.1 billion, followed by developing APAC regions with $173.8 billion. It's an impressive sum, as smartphone OEMs have begun to adopt the trend of preloading their devices with mobile messaging apps such as BBM, Samsung ChatOn, iMessage and WhatsApp.

Still unbelievable to note that sms can still have an impact on marketing at that grand a scale. I always thought the advanced aspects of mobile marketing (like mobile browsing) have already taken the reins from it.
