Research Insights on VoLTE (Voice over LTE) Ecosystem: 2015- 2030 Opportunities, Challenges & Forecasts

The VoLTE (Voice over LTE) Ecosystem: 2015- 2030 Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts ​is a new market research publication announced by Reportstack. "VoLTE (Voice over LTE) technology allows a voice call to be placed over an LTE network, enabling operators to reduce reliance on legacy circuit-switched networks. Powered by IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) architecture, VoLTE brings a host of benefits to mobile operators ranging from the ability to refarm legacy 2G and 3G spectrum to offering their subscribers a differentiated service experience through capabilities such as HD voice and video telephony.

First deployed by South Korean operators in 2012, VoLTE is beginning to gain momentum globally. As of Q3’2015, more than 20 operators have commercially launched VoLTE services and several roaming and interoperability agreements are already in place.

Complete report available @ ​The VoLTE (Voice over LTE) Ecosystem: 2015- 2030 Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts.

The Research estimates that VoLTE service revenue will grow at a CAGR of 36% between 2015 and 2020. By the end of 2020, VoLTE subscribers will account for nearly $120 Billion in revenue. Although traditional voice services will constitute a major proportion of this figure, over 12% of the revenue will be driven by video calling and supplementary services.

The “VoLTE (Voice over LTE) Ecosystem: 2015 – 2030 – Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies & Forecasts” report presents an in-depth assessment of the VoLTE ecosystem including enabling technologies, key market drivers, challenges, collaborative initiatives, regulatory landscape, standardization, opportunities, operator case studies, future roadmap, value chain, ecosystem player profiles and strategies. The report also presents forecasts for VoLTE smartphone shipments, subscriptions, service revenue and infrastructure investments from 2015 till 2030. The forecasts cover 7 individual submarkets and 6 regions.

The report comes with an associated Excel datasheet suite covering quantitative data from all numeric forecasts presented in the report."

Key Findings 

The report has the following key findings: 
- By 2020, the Research estimates that VoLTE services will account for nearly $120 Billion in annual service revenue, as mobile operators remain committed to VoLTE as the long term solution to secure a fully native IP based telephony experience
- Nearly all VoLTE operators are committed to migrate existing mobile voice subscribers to LTE in order to refarm their 2G and 3G spectrum
- Some operators are integrating their VoLTE services with WiFi calling in a bid to offer voice services in areas where their licensed spectrum coverage is limited
- The Research estimates that VoLTE capable smartphone shipments will grow at a CAGR of 33% between 2015 and 2020, eventually accounting for over 950 Million unit shipments by the end of 2020
- As part of the wider NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) initiative, many vendors are integrating their virtualized VoLTE offerings with cloud platforms
- The vendor ecosystem is gradually consolidating with several prominent acquisitions such as Mitel’s acquisition of VoLTE specialist Mavenir Systems"
