Report: Now Lagging, IP Phone Sales Poised For Takeoff

Annual IP phone shipments will grow from 10 million units in 2006 to 164 million units in 2010.

VoIP services have been taking off in recent months, but IP phones have been lagging. That's going to change, according to In-Stat, which said Tuesday that growth in IP phones will begin in 2008.

In a research report titled "IP Phones Invade the Home and Office," the market research firm predicted total IP phone annual shipments will explode from 10 million units in 2006 to 164 million units in 2010.

"The migration to IP phones will coincide with the adoption of next-generation business and consumer applications such as presence-enabled calling features," said Keith Nissen, an In-Stat analyst, in a statement.

The market research firm said that currently just 40% of IP PBX seats are configured with IP phones. Cisco Systems dominates the business IP phone market with a 43% share of the market, while Avaya -- with 12% of the market -- is in second place.
