  • We project share of social networks users paying for virtual goods/services 25,7% in 2015, up from 8,5% in 2009. The main driver for such tendency is growing popularity of online payments. People now mostly use sms payments to buy virtual goods/services. We believe payment systems are getting more acceptance in Russia while other sources of online payments are developing pretty fast. The most promising are banking cards, web money and universal payment systems. Shift from sms payments to various payment systems, web money and credit cards or reducing sms payments commissions will bring additional revenue to social networks. Running non-gaming applications such as pay TV, music and video content, improvement of user interface may give may significantly increase number of paying users according to our estimations. In the next five years we expect social networks market growth in Russia. The main drivers of such a tendency are: Internet access penetration growth At the end of 2009, broadband penetration in households was about 30%, and by 2015 it will reach 63%. Development of new applications which allow social network users promptly meet their needs for better services and more personalization Emergence of API (Application Programming Interface) for external parties (web-sites, customers, clients, etc.) and integration with external web-sites API for external parties allows independent resources to interact with social networks users to run their applications and additional services on their side as well as attract new audience. Развитие платежных систем, в т.ч. рост проникновения банковских карт, распространение платежных терминалов, увеличение популярности оплат электронными деньгами. The main constrains for social networks market growth are:  Lack of broadband connections and low PC installment rates in the Russian regions: for comparison, in Moscow 62% of households have Internet access and in the regions - only 26%.  Relatively high cost of telecom services in the Russian regions.  Still low level of confidence in payment systems and their poor development, high proportion of SMS (characterized by high commissions) in payments structure. Despite existing constrains to development, the effect of growth factors, according to J'son & Partners Consulting, will affect more strongly, increasing social networks market to USD 1,5 bln till 2015.
