According to their report, the mobile messaging industry worth $130 billion in 2008, and in 2013 it’s expected to reach $224 billion. Looks like the economic recession won’t really influence this element of the industry.

Although that many ways of communication like multimedia messages, e-mail and IM have been created in recent years, SMS messages continue to be the most popular one.
