The global IP Multimedia Subsystem market was valued at USD 1.41 billion in 2017 and projected to reach USD 3.71 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.7% during the forecast period. The base year considered for the study is 2017, and the forecast period is 2018–2023.

The report aims at estimating the market size and potential of the IP Multimedia Subsystem market across different segments, such as by component (product and service), telecom operator, and region. The primary objectives of the report are to provide a detailed analysis of the major factors (drivers, restraints, opportunities, industry-specific challenges, and recent developments) influencing the market’s growth, analyze the market opportunities for stakeholders, and offer details of the competitive landscape to the market leaders.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the IMS market began with the capturing of data about revenues of the key vendors through secondary sources, such as annual reports, press releases, investor presentations of companies, white papers, certified publications, and articles from recognized associations and government publishing sources. This research study involved the use of extensive secondary sources, directories, and databases, such as D&B Hoovers, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Factiva. Other than these sources, analyses, and releases from industry trade associations, such as government regulatory bodies were considered during the research process. Vendor offerings were also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up procedure was employed to arrive at the overall market size of the global IP Multimedia Subsystem market from the revenues of the key market players. After arriving at the overall market size, the market was split into several segments and subsegments that were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with the key industry personnel, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), directors, and executives. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of the profiles of primary participants is depicted in the figure below:

MarketsandMarkets expects the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) market size to grow from USD 1.79 billion in 2018 to USD 3.71 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 15.7% during the forecast period. Low Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX), increasing number of Long-Term Evolution (LTE) mobile subscribers across the globe, and the growth of the network infrastructure are expected to drive the market growth.

The objective of the report is to define, describe, and forecast the IP Multimedia Subsystem market size by component (product and service), telecom operator, and region. Among components, the product segment is expected to account for the larger market share during the forecast period. This growth is because of large-scale implementation of IMS solution by telecom operators to deliver various use cases, such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE), Voice over Wireless Fidelity (VoWiFi), Rich Communication Services (RCS), and Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS).

Among telecom operators, the mobile operators segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. Mobile operators have been facing several challenges, such as updating the legacy systems to meet the current demands for end-customers, intense competition, high CAPEX and OPEX, and low Return on Investment (RoI). Hence, they are in the process of seeking scalable and cost-effective solutions. All these factors are expected to be the key reason for the rapid adoption of IMS solutions and services by telecom operators.

IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) Market

North America is expected to account for the largest size in the IP Multimedia Subsystem market during the forecast period, followed by Europe. North America is the house of big telecom giants. Mobile operators are rolling out new use cases, such as RCS, private LTE, and wireless broadband using their networks. The US government has planned to roll out the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band for private operators and enterprises, in 2018, which would act as a catalyst for the growth of the IMS market. Hence, North America is expected to account for the largest market share in the global IMS market during the forecast period.

The APAC region is expected to register strong growth in the coming years, as the majority of the mobile and fixed operators in the APAC region are still using traditional IMS solutions. However, this trend is expected to change while operators would eventually shift toward virtualized and cloud-based solutions. Moreover, APAC has been the largest contributor to the mobile subscriber base across the globe and is expected to add more subscribers to its network in the coming years.

Security concerns in virtualization and the unwillingness of telecom operators to transit from the legacy infrastructures to a virtual environment may hamper the growth of the market, but for a specific period.

Major and emerging vendors in the IP Multimedia Subsystem market includes Ericsson (Sweden), Huawei (China), NEC (Japan), Nokia (Finland), ZTE (China), Athonet (Italy), Cirpack (France), Cisco (US), CommVerge Solutions (China), Dialogic (US), Interop Technologies (US), Italtel (Italy), Metaswitch (UK), Mavenir (US), Oracle (US), Radisys (US), Ribbon Communications (US), Samsung (South Korea), and WIT Software (Portugal).
