2.2 billion - Global Internet Population by 2013

I just found the new research from Forrester about projection of the Internet population will hit 2.2 billion people by 2013. Of that tally, 43 percent of the Internet population will be in Asia. There are some interesting points in the the research paper as following.

17 percent of the online population will reside in China. Tha'ts really big market. The search engine war between Baidu VS Google.
• Growth rates in the U.S., Western Europe and other industrialized nations will be between 1 percent and 3 percent.
Online penetration in the U.S. will rise to 82 percent in 2013, up from 73 percent. That rate will put it on par with other Internet saturated countries. • Russia and Turkey growth will grow 8 percent a year.
• Africa and the Middle East will show strong growth to hit 13 percent of the online population in 2013.
