Based on a survey by KResearch, 50.4% of consumers in Bangkok own smart phones. 56% of people answering the questionnaire, whose ages are between 20 to 24 years old or those who just start working, have smart phones in possession.

Although smart phone ownership in Thailand’s capital is relatively high, most of the people answering the questionnaire in all age groups have no smart phones at present. However, 50% of them do plan to have the device in the future.
