IP Phone Shipments to Jump 16 Fold from 2006 to 2010

The mass migration to IP-based services is finally happening in both the business and consumer markets. Total IP phone annual shipments will grow from 10 million units in 2006 to 164 million units in 2010, according to In-Stat research. Cisco leads the business IP phone market with a 43% market share. The next closest competitor is Avaya, at 12%. Only 40% of IP PBX seats are currently configured with IP phones.

“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 In-Stat research, In-Depth Analysis: IP Phones Invade the Home and Office, 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.
