Business and Consumer IP Phone Markets Will Accelerate by 2008


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., November 21, 2006 - The mass migration to IP-based services is finally happening in both the business and consumer markets. Even though the adoption of IP phones is currently lagging, reports In-Stat (, the growth of IP phones will accelerate significantly beginning in 2008, the high-tech market research firm says.

“The migration to IP phones will coincide with the adoption of next-generation business and consumer applications such as presence-enabled calling features,” says Keith Nissen, In-Stat analyst. “Except for traditional business corded IP phones, wireless models will predominate.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

* Total IP phone annual shipments will grow from 10 million units in 2006 to 164 million units in 2010.
* Only 40% of IP PBX seats are currently configured with IP phones.
* Cisco leads the business IP phone market with a 43% market share. The next closest competitor is Avaya, at 12%.

Recent In-Stat research, In-Depth Analysis: IP Phones Invade the Home and Office (#IN0602854CT), covers the market for business and consumer IP corded, cordless (DECT), Wi-Fi, and cellular/Wi-Fi phones. It addresses the current market for dedicated IP-PBX desk sets, and the impact of trends toward wireless and mobility. Five-year shipment and revenue forecasts are presented for each of the four IP phone categories.
