Infonetics Research reveals its predictions on VoIP telephony growth in 2010
Infonetics Research has announced some digits and estimates on expected 2010 VoIP telephony growth perspectives. Global VoIP service revenue is estimated to be $22.6 billion in the first half of 2010, compared as up eight percent over the second half of 2009, driven by stable growth in business and residential services throughout all regions.
“ The market for business Voice over IP services slowed during the financial turmoil of 2009, but we are now seeing a good uptick in new business across all segments, particularly in IP connectivity services," said Diane Myers, directing analyst for VoIP and IMS at Infonetics Research.

An steadily growing amount of hosted VoIP providers are trying to integrate Unified Communication elements and mobility into their standard packages, thus fostering new levels of service differentiation as well.

The total amount of residential VoIP subscribers expanded by 10 percent between the second half of 2009 and the first half of 2010. There are some estimates on U.S. VoIP revenue (consumer and business) at about $14 billion in total.

To evaluate those numbers in strategic perspective, anyone should keep in mind that in 2007 and 2008, the last years, when Infonetics Research had comprehensive data, U.S. full scale communications revenues were in the range of $297 to $299 billions. It means that general VoIP revenue represents possibly two percent of total communications industry ones. That's dramatically less revenue than most of involved individuals probably would expect by this point.

Notwithstanding the fact that residential VoIP services revenue growth is slowing due to pricing pressures throughout the globe, trends of growth continue to get presented in regions such as Africa and Southeast Asia that previously did not have a large residential VoIP provider base, as per Infonetics Research.

In the first half of 2010, the IP connectivity segment of the business VoIP services market surged past the managed IP-PBX and hosted VoIP and Unified Communications services sectors to become the largest segment of the market. In other words, SIP trunking now is the single largest portion of the IP telephony service revenue stream.
