2008 Forecasts Indicate Worldwide Audio/Web/Video Service Markets to Surge 13% in Revenue to Over $5.5B and Audio Conferencing Minutes to Climb 22% to Nearly 60B

DUXBURY, MA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - With the release of the North American 2008 CSP Forecast and Provider Review, as well as the companion North American Addressable CSP Market study, Wainhouse Research ( completes a 2x3 series of studies, offering analysis of 20 local CSP markets in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. With the growth rates, prices and characteristics of the various countries being vastly unique, the data found in these studies will prove invaluable to decision makers working in this area of collaboration services.

The 2008 Forecast and Provider Review studies offer an assessment of 20 local markets including audio minutes, revenue, and average sales price, web conferencing and video bridging revenue, over 40 provider reviews for each region, and local provider ranking by service type. In addition, each market is forecast from 2008 through 2012 by service type.

The 2008 Addressable CSP Market studies seek to compare the 2008 forecast (probable) to the total possible market opportunity. Each of the 20 local markets is assessed based on current market sizing, labor data, telecom infrastructure and use, and key economic factors -- all combined to create an opportunity analysis (unaddressed opportunity) for each local market for audio and web conferencing and video bridging.

These reports are available individually or bundled as regional companions (Forecast & Addressable studies together), or by the bundle by title (all regions Forecast or all regions Addressable studies).
