VoIP Equipment Revenue to Reach $5.5 Billion by 2007

Johanne Torres, TMCnet Contributing Editor

A recent study conducted by research firm Juniper Research revealed that revenues from the sale of business VoIP hardware and software will reach a whopping $5.5 billion by 2007.
Analysts believe that the movement will be mostly driven by rapid new business growth in China, the adoption of VoIP-based technologies and services across existing western businesses and the echo of the year 2000 equipment purchase boom.
Further research also revealed that sales will stabilize and fall in revenue terms after 2007 as the Chinese market begins to mature, as the Y2K echo passes and as competition from low cost suppliers in China and India erodes prices.
Analysts also noted that the revenue growth will also be driven by the rapid adoption of VoIP not only in China, but also in the U.S. and Europe.
The study also revealed that revenues for the sales of IP-PBX equipment will reach over $1.6 billion in 2007, while the VoIP-based applications market revenue will hit the $500 million mark by 2010.
