font size    

As the number of VoIP users soars, the market income of VoIP equipment will triple from 2004 to 2010, iSuppli predicted.

By the year 2010, the global number of civilian VoIP users will reach 197.2 million, about 40 times that of the 4.8 million in 2004. By 2010, income in wire VoIP equipment will reach 24.5 billion dollars, three times more than the 8.04 billion dollars in 2004. By 2005, the income figure will reach 12.9 billion dollars, 60 percent higher than that of 2004.

Civilian sector is currently the fastest-growing part in the whole VoIP equipment market. By 2010, market income from this section will hit 10.6 billion dollars, 650 percent higher than the 1.4 billion dollars in 2004.

In the coming few years, iSuppli predicted, Japan, the United States and Canada will dominate the civilian VoIP market. Fixed-line user number of these three regions takes 83 percent of VoIP total, and would still take 56.4 percent by the year 2010.
