The global voice over LTE (VoLTE) market size reached US$ 9.3 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 190.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 63.2% during 2023-2028.
Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is a high-speed wireless communication standard that routes voice traffic and transmits data across 4G LTE networks. It relies on an internet protocol (IP) multimedia subsystem (IMS) framework to offer advanced multimedia as data flows over a common IP interface without depending on a circuit-switched voice network. It is used in smartphones, data terminals, internet of things (IoT) devices, and wearables for high-speed wireless communications on account of better voice quality, faster call setup, and LTE or 4G data services, like web surfing and tethering during voice calls. As a result, VoLTE finds extensive applications in the commercial, residential and government sectors across the globe.
Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) Market Trends:
At present, there is a rise in the utilization of VoLTE by network operators for transmitting voice services in small-sized packets and increasing spectrum efficiency. This, along with the growing demand for VoLTE among operators to provide high-quality video, messaging, and voice services to customers, represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, there is an increase in the employment of rich communication services (RCS) to reduce the time of connecting VoLTE calls, real-time language translation, instant messaging, and voice mails while improving the battery life of devices. This, coupled with the rapid call setup time due to reduced latency with decreasing maintenance and operational costs, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, high definition (HD) voice offered by VoLTE to give enhanced audio output while reducing the background noise compared to standard voice calls is positively influencing the market. Besides this, the increasing adoption of the internet of things (IoT) in VoLTE technology is offering lucrative growth opportunities to industry investors. Additionally, the escalating demand for high-speed internet among individuals around the world is bolstering the market growth.
