Global Telecom API Revenue to Reach USD 207 Bn in 2022, States Mind Commerce in In-demand Report Available at MarketPublishers.com04 May 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Telecom API revenue is likely to amount to USD 207 billion worldwide by 2022.
The telecom application programming interface (API) market has matured to a great degree in the recent past. Whilst some expectations have not yet been lived up to, like carrier branded app stores, B2B revenue to 3rd parties like OTT providers keeps on providing growth in wholesale services revenue for conventional telecommunication providers. Still, much of telecom API opportunities have been limited to bigger service providers across developed nations. There still exists a lucrative opportunity for both smaller telecommunication providers and bigger carriers in the developing world.
During the past five years, network operators have leveraged APIs to obtain wholesale transaction revenues alongside communication-enabled app revenues. There has also been extensive use for internal carrier services like CRM. Mounting growth opportunities for telecommunication providers include a diversity of services and app support like robocall blocking and also unwanted call blocking services in general.
However, there will likely be an overall leveling of the growth curve for conventional client-centric and handset-oriented services supported by telecom APIs. In the longer term, the growth of telecom API is expected to come from novel networks like non-cellular and cellular WANs supporting the IoT. In the offing, communication-enabled app revenue is set to flatten whilst IoT network-support revenue is poised to become a more important revenue component for telecom APIs by end-2025.
