I am working now on my business plane. I plane to import new mobile
phone accessories to the USA.
Those items would be sold as wholesale to the biggest corporate nets in the USA.
I am missing general information about the mobile phone market and do
not have time to handle the research.
I would like to know the fallowing statistic:
	Percentage of a mobile phone owner in the USA in between the years:
2000 until present time.
	Yearly mobile phone expenses per individual in the USA spent in
between the years: 2000 until present time.
	Total grow mobile phone market in the USA in between the years: 2000
until present time.
	Total grow mobile phone accessories market in the USA in between the
years: 2000 until present time
I need this information as accurate as possible.

I found the data you need, though it is copyrighted, and I cannot
reproduce it here without written permission from the provider. Simply
visit http://files.ctia.org/pdf/CTIAYearend2004Survey.pdf and look at
page 2 of the document. That document, created by CTIA-The Wireless
Association, contains the number of subscribers (you can easily
calculate percentage growth), average monthly bill (you can calculate
annual expenses by multiplying the average bill by 12), and total
industry service revenue (you can easily calculate growth).

That covers the first three aspects of your question. Now, on to the
accessories request. For that, I used North American handset net adds
and replacements as a proxy. I could not get reliable growth data
before 2001. According to a Lehman Brothers research report, the
number of handsets added or replaced 17% from 2001 through 2002, 20%
from 2002 through 2003, and 21% from 2003 through 2004. The report
projects 6% growth this year and 9% next year. From 2001 through 2004,
North America?s percentage of global demand fell to 38% from 55%.

Search strategy: None. I knew where to find the data.

Hello Tamarawomen-ga,

Just to help you get the best out of this service, please have a look
to previous questions on market research, and you'll see that
questions like yours generally get answered when priced at higher
fees, and some remain unanswered even though. Please consider that
very often the kind of information you're looking for would be in
reports valued in three zeros figures, so finding it for free in the
net may become either impossible or at least a several days thorough
job for a researcher.

Sincerely,

Guillermo-ga

item 1: market penetration data is available from research firms like
Garner Group. It's often reprinted in sell-side investment research
(Goldman, Citi, Lehman, etc)

item 2: sell-side research has ARPU (avg. revenue per user) for the
major wireless firms.

item 3: basically the same as item 1... you're just looking for the
denominator here, whereas 1 is the numerator

item 4: no idea

---------------------------
Get a brokerage account with a major firm... you'll get free access to
their investment research.

I own a wireless company and we are always looking for good wholesale
accessory suppliers.  I would be interested in finding out more
information on you and your company (plan).  Do you have contact info?

Dear Tamarawomen-ga,

First let me clarify that my previous comment wasn?t meant to discuss
a price for which I?d answer the question. I apologize if it seemed
so, but in fact I only answer market related questions when for some
reason I feel confident about finding the information, which is not
this case, regardless the price. I?m actually trying to orientate you
by pointing out that your question includes several items, each of
them hard to find, maybe not even findable but in industry reports
frequently very expensive.

Whether the new price is good or not to get this question answered is
not for me to tell, given what I told you above. Maybe another
researcher feels confident to find the information you ask for within
a time frame according to the offer, there are about five hundred of
us. Also, there?s always the possibility that another user had the
information you?re asking for, and posted it as a comment for free.

Now, if after a few days none of that happens, one thing that you can
do is to browse the category ?business and money? looking for other
questions similar to yours and see at what prices they got answered.
You?ll also want to see those that expired unanswered; sometimes
there?s information that just can?t be found. By doing so, you?ll have
input to decide what to do, be it reset your question?s price, or
change it; splitting your question in one for each item is another
option to try in that case.

If needed, I hope my tips prove useful. Wish you best luck!
