According to a new report India will surpass the United States (the second largest web market in the world after China ) by end of 2014.
The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) said India will have over 213 million users by the end of December.
“This phenomenal growth will spark off new web-based startups in the consumer internet space. Travel and e-commerce are areas to watch-out for,” said Subho Ray, president of IAMAI.
IAMAI which co-authored the report with research agency IMRB estimates that decline in smartphone prices and internet data plans will catalyse greater adoption and catapult the user base to 254 million by end 2014.
