This industry research report identifies AT&T, Ericsson, Nokia, SK Telecom, and T-Mobile as the key vendors in the global VoLTE market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by market shares, value, forecasting, trends, technology (VoIMS, CSFB, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global VoLTE market

Research analysis on the global VoLTE market identifies that the demand for quality over voice services will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 47% by 2021. The benefit of VoLTE is that the quality of the call is better than 2G and 3G connections and there is more data transfer over 4G compared to 2G and 3G. Traditionally, voice networks transmit voice calls using 8 Kbps codec, but VoLTE transmits voice calls using 13 Kbps codec, which results in clearer phone calls compared with a typical cellular phone call. The efficiency of VoLTE is three times as much as 3G and six times as much as 2G. The voice calls are in HD quality and offer a much richer experience altogether. Fast, reliable, and richer services encourage subscribers to switch to VoLTE. The high-value mobile subscribers are ready and already willing to swap providers to avail VoLTE services.

The increasing adoption of LTE technology is one of the latest trends that will gain traction in the VoLTE market.  LTE is one of the latest technologies in the telecom space. It is widely adopted by telecom operators due to its advantages such as being the most efficient data-supported mobile technology and its high-level safety and security measures. TETRA & Critical Communications Association (TCCA) and National Public Safety Telecommunications Council (NPSTC) have signed a MoU for their joint commitment to the need to develop mission-critical public safety communication standards for LTE-based technology. Public safety networks in which the LTE technology has been implemented can respond to the demanding need for reliable voice and data connectivity at significant speeds with increased security measures.
