ANALYST NOTE

“The VoIP services market is on track with our expectations for 2013,” reports Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC and IMS at Infonetics Research. “Residential VoIP services make up the majority of revenue, but growth is being fueled by business services as SIP trunking and cloud unified communications continue to expand and find broader adoption with enterprises of all sizes.”

  • Worldwide business VoIP service revenue is forecast by Infonetics to grow at a 7% CAGR from 2012 to 2017, compared to a 3% CAGR for residential/SOHO VoIP services
  • Hosted PBX/UC grew the most of any VoIP service in 1H13 as businesses, particularly larger enterprises, continue to turn to hosted services as a viable alternative to premises-based solutions
  • Driven by activity in North America, SIP trunking spiked 23% in 1H13 over 2H12
  • Residential VoIP subscribers topped 203 million worldwide in 1H13
