Infonetics: PBX Revenue Falls Despite Demand; Unified Communications Vendor Battle Looming

CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Market research firm Infonetics Research released vendor market share and preliminary analysis from its 4th quarter 2012 (4Q12) and year-end Enterprise Unified Communications and Voice Equipment report. (Full report published March 4.)

ANALYST NOTE

"Following two years of modest growth, the PBX market had a tough 2012. While shipments grew, competitive pricing pressure persisted, driving down worldwide revenues, exacerbated by Europe's tough economic conditions," notes Diane Myers, principal analyst for VoIP, UC, and IMS at Infonetics Research.

"On a brighter note, unified communications ended the year on a high note, led by Microsoft and its Lync platform," Myers continues. "We expect the PBX (News - Alert) market to move back into positive territory in 2013, with moderate growth in addition to continued strong adoption of UC applications by large and mid-market enterprises looking to improve flexibility and productivity."

ENTERPRISE TELEPHONY MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • The global PBX/KTS market totaled $8.1 billion in 2012, down 4% from 2011; the EMEA region alone declined 10%
  • In 2012, the unified communications segment grew 8% year-over-year
  • North America and APAC were the regions to net positive revenue gains in the PBX market in 2012, growing a modest 2% and 1%, respectively over the previous year
  • Pure IP PBX licenses grew 11% in 2012
  • Cisco (News - Alert) maintains its lead in global PBX/KTS revenue for the 6th consecutive quarter; Avaya and Siemens round out the top 3
  • Only 3 vendors in the enterprise telephony market posted year-over-year revenue gains in 2012: Cisco, Mitel, and ShoreTel (News - Alert)
  • Infonetics expects fierce vendor battles to continue in 2013, particularly between Microsoft and Cisco in the unified communications segment
