Worldwide Telecoms Equipment Forecast

Worldwide total telecom and datacom equipment revenue reached $107.9 billion in 2005 and will grow 33 percent to $143.5 billion in 2009, according to a new market share and forecast report by Infonetics Research.

Wireless broadband and mobile radio access equipment makes up the largest portion of revenue, but the expected increase is fueled by phenomenal growth in service provider next generation voice equipment and broadband aggregation and IPTV equipment. Wireless LAN equipment sales are surging as well, but represent a small market overall.

"Three major trends are driving the growth we're seeing in the telecom and datacom market: People worldwide are communicating over networks and the Internet via broadband. Carriers are moving to a single converged data network incorporating voice and video along with traditional data. And mobile and fixed wireline networks of data, voice, and video are converging. With all of these changes come increased security concerns, both in carrier and enterprise networks, and all have long-term implications on spending that keep growth in the market relatively high through 2009," said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst at Infonetics Research.

Report Highlights:

-The service provider next gen voice and IMS market represents 2 percent of the total telecom/datacom market now, doubling to 4 percent in 2009, driven by the move to IMS and by fixed-mobile convergence.
-The IPTV equipment market has a stunning compound annual growth rate of 99 percent from 2005 to 2009.
-Wireless broadband and mobile radio access equipment will slow in 2006 as historically strong spending in GSM/CDMA shifts over to spending on 3G equipment worldwide.
-Cisco is the revenue-leading vendor by far in worldwide telecom/datacom equipment market share, with 19 percent.
-Nortel is second and Huawei is third, followed closely by fourth-place Alcatel and fifth-place Siemens.

Demand for Quantum Computing as a Service

The enterprise demand for quantum computing is still in its early stages, growing slowly. As the technology becomes more usable, we may see demand evolve beyond scientific applications. The global quantum computing market is forecast to grow from $1.1 billion in 2022 to $7.6 billion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). That's a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 48.1 percent. The forecast includes base Quantum Computing as a Service, as well as enabling and adjacent Quantum Computing as a Service. However, this updated forecast is considerably lower than IDC's previous quantum computing forecast, which was published in 2021, due to lower demand globally. Quantum Computing Market Development In the interim, customer spend for quantum computing has been negatively impacted by several factors, including: slower than expected advances in quantum hardware development, which have delayed potential return on inve

AI Semiconductor Revenue will Reach $119.4B

The Chief Information Officer (CIO) and/or the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) will guide Generative AI initiatives within the large enterprise C-Suite. They may already have the technical expertise and experience to understand the capabilities and limitations of Gen AI. They also have the authority and budget to make the necessary investments in infrastructure and talent to support Gen AI initiatives. Enterprise AI infrastructure is proven to be expensive to build, operate and maintain. That's why public cloud service provider solutions are often used for new AI use cases. AI Semiconductor Market Development Semiconductors designed to execute Artificial Intelligence (AI) workloads will represent a $53.4 billion revenue opportunity for the global semiconductor industry in 2023, an increase of 20.9 percent from 2022, according to the latest worldwide market study by Gartner. "The developments in generative AI and the increasing use of a wide range AI-based applications in data c

Global Public Cloud Spending to Reach $1.35T

Most digital transformation is enabled by cloud solutions. Worldwide spending on public cloud services is forecast to reach $1.35 trillion in 2027, according to the latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Although annual spending growth is expected to slow slightly over the 2023-2027 forecast period, the market is forecast to achieve a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.9 percent. "Cloud now dominates tech spending across infrastructure, platforms, and applications," said Eileen Smith, vice president at IDC . Public Cloud Services Market Development IDC believes that most organizations have adopted the public cloud as a cost-effective platform for hosting enterprise applications, and for developing and deploying customer-facing solutions. Looking forward, the cloud computing model remains well positioned to serve customer needs for innovation in application development and deployment -- including as data, artificial intelligence
