Global Audio Conferencing Endpoints Market, Forecast to 2024
Focus on Huddle Rooms Continues to Render Growth Opportunities for Tabletop Audio Conferencing Endpoints
  • The tabletop audio conferencing endpoint market grew by 7.8 percent in 2017, driven by sales across both VoIP and USB conferencing endpoints. The growing popularity of huddle spaces has led to increasing demand for tabletop audio conferencing endpoints. While factors such as rising millennial population, availability of a variety of low-priced USB endpoints and growing video adoption are stimulating the growth in the USB audio conferencing endpoint market, increasing confidence in the maturity and capabilities of VoIP is positively impacting the VoIP conference phone market. In addition, continued Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) decommissioning across Europe and the US is accelerating the transition to IP environments and boosting the uptake of VoIP conference phones.

    On the other hand, the evolving meetings format from boardrooms to huddle rooms is significantly impacting demand for installed audio conferencing solutions. As meetings become shorter and more frequent, small-size huddle rooms are becoming more relevant to users. As a result, tabletop audio conferencing endpoints are better positioned to meet current needs than installed audio solutions. This phenomenon has restrained growth in the installed audio conferencing endpoint market. Despite meetings shifting toward huddle rooms, there will continue to exist a demand for installed audio conferencing devices to satisfy sophisticated audio conferencing needs and to provide enhanced intelligibility in large meeting and training spaces. Highly intelligible and well-orchestrated audio output can be achieved via dedicated DSP equipment that runs algorithms for functions such as microphone tracking, acoustic echo cancellation, air handling, noise filtering, signal amplification, mixing, gating, and encoding/decoding. These features constitute the core capabilities of an installed DSP mixer, the role of which is often not matched by the DSP chipsets built into the tabletop audio conferencing endpoint. Therefore, the installed audio conferencing endpoint market is expected to recover in the short-term backed by new form-factors, enhanced capabilities, and varied price options.
