Research and Markets: Mobile Payments Market: Tablet Shopping Surges as Mobile Retail Sales Top $60 Billion

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5558dt/mobile_payments) has announced the addition of Javelin Strategy & Research's new report "Mobile Payments Market: Tablet Shopping Surges as Mobile Retail Sales Top $60 Billion" to their offering.

Consumer mobile purchasing surged to an all-time high, reaching almost $60 billion and demonstrating triple-digit growth in 2013. Consumers are increasingly turning to tablets and phones for purchasing despite the fact that many sites are not ideally set up yet for mobile devices and creating opportunity for vendors who are prepared for the onslaught. Vendors and merchants are now challenged to seamlessly integrate mobile into the online and in-store search and shopping experience. Consumer spend on tablets surpassed phones for the first time in 2013 as tablet adoption swelled.

This report provides an in-depth study of the mobile purchasing market, including dollar and consumer market sizing of online, app and proximity payments, a five-year forecast of mobile proximity payments, tablet vs. phone dollar market sizing, and frequency and size of median purchases, as well as commerce by device type. It also looks at what factors are holding consumers back from greater mobile purchasing and defines strategies to excel in this expanding market.
