The number of people using mobile working technologies will top one billion before the end of the year, according to analysts.
Research firm IDC predicted that some 1.2 billion workers will be using mobile enterprise tools by 2011, representing roughly a third of the total global workforce.
The company said that the US will lead with 75.5 per cent of workers using mobile technologies. Mobile worker growth in Europe was six per cent last year, and will not pass the US in total mobile workers until at least 2013.
"Outside the US and Japan, where mobile worker population penetration has essentially peaked, there are large worker populations that are still growing," said IDC research analyst Sean Ryan.
"Underserved mobile workers across all regions stand to benefit from the reach and flexibility offered by mobile solutions."
Asia Pacific is among the fastest growing regions, according to IDC, and will have 62 per cent of all global mobile workers by 2013. Other areas set for growth include South America, Central and Eastern Europe and the Middle East and Africa.
