Thailand is known for scenic natural beauty, delicious cuisine and rich culture. However, very little is known about smartphone users, beyond the fact that it is one of the fastest growing mobile markets in Southeast Asia. In today's era where businesses and marketing are driven by data, marketers need to go beyond demographic data to engage these users.
With our Smartphone User Persona Report (SUPR) 2015 for India, we provided the industry in-depth insights on smartphone users that helped marketers engage these users effectively. Every country has a unique smartphone user base and therefore, we also released SUPR for Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia uncovering never-before known insights on smartphone users from these countries. Continuing with this trend, we are bringing to the Southeast Asian market today, the Smartphone User Persona Report (SUPR) 2015 for Thailand.
