Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Telecom team said: “Mobile entertainment includes gaming, browsing, and watching videos on a mobile phone.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increasing adoption of mobile broadband. As mobile broadband is necessary to download and use mobile applications, its availability will encourage end-users to download applications and improve the functionalities of their mobile devices.
Further, the report discusses that two of the major challenges in the market are the availability of free applications and the increase in piracy.
