Instant Messaging Continues to See Explosive Growth Among Consumers and Business Users

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2015) - A new study from The Radicati Group provides an in-depth analysis of the market for Instant Messaging (IM) and Mobile Messaging (also referred to as Mobile IM or Mobile Chat) from 2015 to 2019. The study provides extensive data regarding current user and account installed base, four-year forecasts, breakouts by region, business size, and other variables. The report also provides an overview of leading IM and Mobile Messaging solutions.

Instant Messaging continues to see strong growth across all segments of the market in 2015. Worldwide IM accounts (not including Mobile Messaging) are expected to grow from over 3.2 billion in 2015 to over 3.8 billion by year-end 2019.

Mobile Messaging (also known as Mobile IM or Mobile Chat) is seeing explosive growth in recent years as the most popular form of mobile-to-mobile communication.
