Mobile Industry Impact Report
In 2018, mobile technologies and services generated $3.9 trillion of economic value as countries increasingly benefit from the improvements in productivity and efficiency brought about by increased take-up of mobile services. The mobile ecosystem also supported almost 32 million jobs (directly and indirectly) and made a substantial contribution to the funding of the public sector, with more than $500 billion raised through general taxation.
In 2015, the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals provide a set of integrated priorities for people, planet, prosperity, partnership, and peace.
