January 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Unified Communications Market Growth & Trends

The global unified communications market size is expected to reach USD 417.86 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 17.4% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The proliferation of smartphones and the rollout of services such as 5G are the significant drivers of market growth in developing and developed economies.

Smartphones have become efficient business communication tools owing to the sophistication of technology, enabling them to perform most of the communication tasks of a desktop computer. Additionally, factors responsible for the growth of the mobile phones market in the emerging markets of the Asia Pacific and Africa region include the availability of low-cost handsets, decreased voice calling rates, and implementation and development of new technologies with considerable investment in building infrastructure by mobile operators which in turn is positively impacting the growth of the market.

Furthermore, the unified communications market is growing with the use of UCaaS. Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) is a delivery model that involves outsourcing communication and collaboration applications and services to third-party providers delivered over an IP network. UCaaS technologies include telephony, video conferencing, online meetings, and enterprise messaging & presence technology.

UCaaS provides high availability (HA), scalability, and flexibility for essential business tasks. Numerous advantages, such as pay as per the need & requirement and cost-effectiveness, have improved the deployment of UCaaS in businesses. It has eliminated the limitation of synchronous operations of geographically dispersed units.

Enterprises are witnessing a rapid adoption of Machine Learning (ML), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) facilitated solutions. AI in the UC sector leads the way toward an increasingly connected future. Organizations are producing AI-based UC to transform how corporations structure their strategy planning, workflow, and decision-making process.

For instance, in November 2021, Poly revealed its revised Poly Room Solutions for Microsoft Teams Rooms. This latest lineup of Poly Studio Kits presents premium audio and video for focus, small, large, focus, and medium rooms and features Poly DirectorAI technology. Additionally, sellers have turned the focus to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), which before did not include the primary market owing to the high adoption of UC services by SMBs over the last few years.

UC service providers have developed solutions that provide the communication history of callers and meeting participants, including calls, audio and video conferences, and e-mails. Thus, the market for unified communications is expected to rise at a considerable rate in the forecast period.
