VoIP technology fuelling growth in voice communication equipment market
Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) technology enables people to have cheaper communication services. VoIP offers comparatively lower cost in terms of hardware cost, line cost, and so on. For example, multiple landline phones in office require something called private branch exchange, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars. VoIP eliminates the need for any such initial outlay and other maintenance cost thereby making the call cost cheaper. VoIP offers almost 50% lower line cost as compared to the traditional system. Through VoIP systems, voice signals are transformed into digital signals and carried via IP based network. Both large and small-scale business enterprises are benefiting by merging of voice and data functions. Especially to companies having their customer base abroad, VoIP provides a cost-effective approach to establish communication. Global VoIP industry is projected to grow at an average 9% per annum till 2021 on the back of growing innovations and number of subscribers. Asia-Pacific and Latin America are the fastest growing markets in VoIP with growth of over 49% and 45% per annum due to telecom infrastructure modernization and advent of 4G connections. Video streaming application of VoIP is expected to see the highest year-on-year growth of 57% from 2016-2017. The major driver for this growth is rising demand for video calling services. Thus, growth in VoIP market is expected to boost growth of global voice communication equipment market during the forecasted period.
