Boston, MASSACHUSETTS, June 19, 2014—Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 1st quarter 2014 (1Q14) Enterprise Telepresence and Video Conferencing Equipment report, which tracks dedicated and PBX-based videoconferencing and telepresence infrastructure and endpoints.
“Video conferencing revenue experienced a strong seasonal decline in the first quarter of 2014, but it remains positive on a year-over-year basis. The dedicated systems market continues to struggle as companies look for more cost-effective video solutions. This dynamic is driving the PBX-based video market, which is delivering all market growth,” says Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise networks and video at Infonetics Research.
- The worldwide enterprise videoconferencing and telepresence market was dealt a strong seasonal blow in 1Q4 and is down 22% sequentially
- Demand for videoconferencing capabilities remains strong, but buyers’ preferences for less costly personal systems is slowing revenue growth
- Sales of PBX-based systems are up 32% in 1Q14 from the year-ago 1st quarter (1Q13)
- Videophones were once again the fastest-growing segment of the hardware endpoint market, with unit shipments increasing 48% in 1Q14 from the same period a year ago
- Growth in Asia Pacific has been slowing, but it is still poised to become the strongest performing region in 2014
- Infonetics projects global enterprise telepresence and video conferencing revenue to grow in the single digits through at least 2017
