Mobile VAS can be defined as beneficial mobile services that are offered by mobile service providers apart from the voice communication services. Traditionally, mobile service providers have been offering only voice communication services; however, the rapid advancements in technology have led to the evolution of other mobile services beyond the voice communication services to include a large number of non-core services. In other words, VAS add more value to the core mobile services, thereby enabling mobile subscribers to use cellphones and tablets for several non-voice purposes such as sending short message service (SMS), multimedia messaging service (MMS), and pictures; accessing the internet for reading news headlines and astrology, retrieving flight information, listening to music, and playing online games; and for m-commerce and mobile banking.

TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Global Mobile VAS market to grow at a CAGR of 10.62 percent over the period 2013-2018.
