28 Feb 2012
FRAMINGHAM, Mass., February 28, 2012 – Results from the International
Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Enterprise
Videoconferencing and Telepresence Qview showed a strong fourth quarter of 2011 (4Q11), with videoconferencing revenue
growing 19.0% quarter over quarter and 24.6% year over year to reach $807.9 million.
Specifically, the single-codec telepresence
segment of the market grew 38.7% year over year to $444.1 million and now
accounts for 55.0% of the total market.
For the full year
2011, total enterprise videoconferencing market revenue reached $2.7 billion,
an increase of 20.5% over the full year 2010. This compares favorably versus
the 16.6% growth we saw in 2010 over 2009, further pointing to an accelerated
adoption of video in the enterprise.
"Growth has been spurred on by more well-defined video
use cases among organizations across a range of vertical market segments,
including healthcare, higher education, financial services, legal, law enforcement,
manufacturing, and retail," said Rich
Costello, senior analyst, Enterprise
Communications Infrastructure, at IDC. "We also expect
growth over the next several years to be bolstered by the impact of video integrated
with vendors' unified communications and collaboration portfolios, and
increasing video usage among small workgroups, desktop users, and mobile device
infrastructure equipment (MCUs, gateways, video network servers
and appliances, etc.) grew to $215.1 million in 4Q11, up 18.4% quarter over
quarter and 18.8% year over year, to finish the full year 2011 at $716.3
million, a 22.5% improvement over 2010.
telepresence revenue for the full year 2011 reached over $314.8 million
in 2011, a 21.6% decrease over 2010, evidence, we believe, of the continuing
trend of video pushing down market in the enterprise.
