Real-time Communication among Distantly Located Teams Fuels Growth
The foremost factor driving the global video conferencing market is the increasing trend of virtual meetings with rising globalization across industries. Video conferencing allows real-time communication over long distances that benefits in the form of enhanced productivity and faster decision making. Additionally, it saves travel expenses and addresses customer queries.
In the corporate sector, video conferencing is a major communication tool used by enterprises for enhanced collaboration. It is because it allows two-way audio and video communication at minimal cost, especially in present times when organizations are focused on curtailing costs related to their means of communication. This has extended widespread opportunities for the video conferencing market.
Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are also increasingly adopting video conferencing solutions for communication with clients at distant locations. SMEs generally rely on managed video conferencing solutions for which only peripherals such as cameras, speakers, and microphones are need to be provided by subscriber of the service. Video conferencing infrastructure including multipoint control units (MCUs), video conferencing systems, and other advanced applications and features are provided and managed by the video conferencing service provider.
The increasing trend of mobile workforce and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) has positively impacted cloud-based video conferencing services.
On the flip side, high initial investments and high installation costs are acting as major challenges to the growth of video conferencing market. Video conferencing systems that are designed to provide a close-to-real experience of a person present in another location require high-quality video devices. These systems also need to be protected with firewalls and security software for secure data transmission that add to the cost of the system.
