Boom Time for Videoconferencing in Asia Pacific
November 3, 2011 | Hogan Keyser
Three technology vendors in particular are benefitting from this burgeoning market with Cisco, Huawei and Polycom each accounting for about a quarter of videoconferencing and telepresence equipment revenues in the APAC region. In Q2 Cisco had a slight lead in market share, while in Q1 Polycom had the lead and in the last quarter of 2010 it was Huawei who had the highest revenues. Globally, however, Cisco does have a clear lead over its two main rivals.
Simple web-based conferencing is also enjoying regional growth rates of around 40%, but there is a big difference in the two markets, even if some of the market drivers are similar. "To use a travel analogy, if using simple web-based conferencing technology is like taking a ride on a bus then using videoconferencing and telepresence room-based systems is like driving a Ferrari, which mostly limits users to executives and government ministers" said Synergy Research Group's Jeremy Duke. "But if you look ahead and imagine service providers offering videoconferencing as a cloud-based application then the economics could change dramatically, bringing the technology within reach of much larger number of business users."
