Business and Consumer IP Phone Shipments to Exceed 40 Million in 2015, Says In-Stat

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - Worldwide sales of IP phones picked up momentum in 2010, as the movement toward IP telephony systems continues. Within the business market, corded IP phones remain the standard, and will continue to dominate the enterprise IP phone market throughout the forecast period. New In-Stat ( research forecasts IP phone shipments, for business and consumer, will exceed 40 million units in 2015.

"IP phones are enabling businesses and consumers to use their telephone system for more advanced communications," says Norm Bogen, VP Digital Entertainment. "These applications are more clearly understood in the enterprise space, where IP-based communication is replacing TDM networks at a steady pace. On the consumer side, the market for Wi-Fi phones has not materialized. Instead, DECT phones dominate the consumer IP phone market."

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

  • Cisco and Avaya are leading the market for enterprise IP phones. Among other major competitors are Aastra, Alcatel-Lucent, LG, Mitel, NEC, Polycom, ShoreTel, and Siemens.
  • Outside of service provider deployments and Skype, consumer adoption of VoIP has been minimal.
  • Business Wi-Fi/Cellular Phone Shipments grew by nearly 40% in 2010 over 2009. Among the leading handset OEMs in the dual-mode segment, HTC saw the biggest share gain.
