The global mobile VoIP market is expected to reach USD 145.76 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The transition to packet-switched networks from circuit switch networks is propelling the growth of the mobile VoIP market.
The deployment of 4G/LTE is one of the key drivers boosting industry growth. The increase in the capability of wireless bandwidth services and growing investment by telecom operators in the deployment of a high-speed network is expected to enhance the usage of these services over the forecast period. Moreover, mobile VoIP service eliminates the need for voice plans, text add-ons, and achieves flexibility in making unlimited, inexpensive, or free calls.
The competition in the mobile VoIP market is intense as several new service providers are focusing on increasing their market presence by offering low-cost services enabling the use of internet-based communication. Mobile VoIP is highly dependent on the reliable high-speed network. However, limited network speed results in interrupted and disruptive communication, which is expected to challenge industry growth over the forecast period.
