NEW YORK, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
The mobile market is growing, up 1.4% to euro 417 billion in 2010. The strongest growth is posted by data services such as mVoIP, both on fixed and mobile networks. Sales of internet connections and data services on fixed networks will grow in 2010 by 7% to almost euro 200 billion. Mobile data services – such as mVoIP are posting even stronger growth: up 16% to over euro 140 billion.
Our new telecoms report outlines how the mobile VoIP market will evolve further during the next five years, ensuring that you are in the know when it comes to important decisions within the mVoIP industry.
The online social networks such as Facebook and MySpace have integrated mVoIP services to offer opportunities for development of third-party applications and software, as well as multimedia content and advertising. Facebook users for example currently send one billion IMs per day.
What analysis does this report focus on?
This report also examines how the growing market share of smartphones offers potential for third-party applications developers in the mVoIP market. In 2010 for example, mobile phone users will download over 6 billion applications to their mobile phones, growing to 7 billion by 2013.
There will be opportunities for the mobile telecoms industry in the IP convergence/substitution market. By introducing fixed VoIP to cellular telephony and mobile VoIP to fixed telephony, operators will have the opportunities to grow on a unified voice and multimedia service experience. VoIP services are cheaper than circuit-switched services on traditional legacy networks. VoIP has diversified from purely voice implementation to a complete multimedia experience offering video calling, video conferencing, gaming and many other features.
Booming smartphone developments bolstered sales in established markets and low-end devices made headway in developing markets.
Analysis on mVoIP revenue growth and background to mergers
This brand new 100+ page analytical report explains how, as the VoIP market goes mobile - revenues are set to increase, and examines the prospects and outlook for providers of Mobile VoIP services, providing background and research on acquisitions and market figures. Our market study also examines leading users and providers of mVoIP services such as the 3 network and Skype - and defines the current state of the mVoIP market, with emphasis on the Indian market and growth in China in particular.
The mVoIP market has grown in importance. However, what will drive its future growth? This report analyses the factors that are going to influence the market and inspire its growth in the future. The report includes a separate analysis of the Market reshaping developments that have taken place recently, and are set to influence and change the landscape of the mVoIP services market in the future.
The global economic crisis appeared to have had only a slight impact on the global telecommunications and IT markets. After a slight dip of 0.5% in 2009, the information and communications (ICT) market will increase by 1.9% to euro 2.3 trillion in 2010 and by 3.7% to euro 2.4 trillion in 2011, according to the European Information Technology Observatory (EITO)'s forecast. The number of mobile subscribers (currently four billion) is set to reach 6 billion by 2013, and smartphones will outsell PCs by 2011, growing to over 50% of the total handset market share by the end of 2013.
As this new report highlights, the strongest growth markets are in the BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India & China) countries - where in 2010 the Chinese telecom market will grow by 8% to euro 126 billion and the Indian market will grow by a staggering 15% to euro 40.5 billion. The inherent cost advantage of mVoIP may help drive and contribute towards wider proliferation of the telecoms sector for the near-term, by way of accelerated take-up among more price-sensitive consumers.
This management report outlines how the VoIP industry has evolved in close correlation with the comprehensive introduction of wireline broadband, providing a set of communication tools that have a dramatic impact on the way both consumers and enterprises perceive telephony and communication as a whole. Video calling, voice calling, presence, in-call file transfer, calendar convergence, instant messenger and dynamic voicemail are all facets of the fixed line VoIP platform that are altering user expectation from a telephony platform. These are also the components of the next wave of IP-only mobile communication networks, delivered to the user over a single ultra high speed wireless broadband connection.
This exclusive management report features interviews and comment from key industry figures in the industry, such as Steven Shaw, VP Market Development, Kineto Wireless and Stefan Oberg, VP Skype for Business on the launch of Skype for SIP.
