Global VoIP services market overview

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global voice over internet protocol (VoIP) services market size to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 10% by 2021. One of the primary drivers for the VoIP services market growth is the rise in the adoption of the bring your own device (BYOD) policy among organizations across the globe. Constant changes in work locations, time zone barriers, and the need to access official and confidential data through an employee’s personal device are resulting in the adoption of BYOD policies. Moreover, employees prefer these policies as they enable them to use one device for both personal and professional use. BYOD applies to smartphones, laptops, and tablets. In 2015, smartphones held the majority of the revenue share in the global BYOD market. This can be attributed to the fact that the mobile developers are developing mobile apps that are compatible with popular programs, such as Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Word.

In terms of geography, EMEA accounted for the maximum market share during 2016 and will continue to dominate the market for the next few years, as per the VoIP services market forecast report. The primary reason for this growth is the constant effort made by the telecom service providers to improve the performance of network connectivity to enhance user experience. The mass deployment of advanced LTE networks is expected to trigger an increase in demand for connectivity in the EU. Also, strategic alliances between telecom companies, such as Telit and Telefonica, to offer premium connectivity solutions to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is also boosting market growth.
