Number of Mobile VoIP Users Will Approach 300 Million by 2013, In-Stat Reports

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --(Business Wire)-- Market research firm In-Stat (News - Alert) ( estimates the total number of mobile VoIP users will reach 288 million by the end of 2013. Of these, well over half will be associated with online mobile VoIP providers, under one-third will utilize mobile VoIP with 3G MVNOs or mobile operators, and 11% with WiMAX/LTE (News - Alert) operators. On a geographic basis, mobile VoIP will be heavily biased towards the Asia Pacific region, particularly among the online mobile VoIP services.

"The near-term opportunity for mobile VoIP is closely linked with the growing success of dual-mode phones and other Wi-Fi connected devices," says Frank Dickson, In-Stat analyst. "However, mobile VoIP still poses a direct threat to operator voice revenue and operators are navigating how to balance new opportunity with the threat." Recent research by In-Stat found the following: In-Stat projects that by 2013 mobile VoIP applications will generate annual revenues of $35.2 billion.

While the EMEA region has more mobile VoIP related revenue currently, Asia Pacific will be the largest regional market in revenue terms by 2013.

Dual-mode handsets (Wi-Fi + Cellular) will be well over 400 million units shipped in 2013.
