‘In the nearest future, the Internet can become primarily mobile and only secondarily desktop that will change priorities in the development of digital products, communications, and advertising. Producers, retailers, and content providers already should make sure that their current products are ready for mobile users,’ Head of Media Research Department at GfK Rus Sergey Ketov commented on the situation.

Overall, the share of mobile Internet users in Russia has reached 61 percent this year. In 2018, the indicator was at 56 percent. It is also worth noting that smartphone usage is growing rapidly while that of tablets is declining.
