Worldwide Enterprise Videoconferencing and Telepresence Equipment Market Sees Significant Decline in First Quarter Revenue Results, According to IDC

The International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Enterprise Videoconferencing and Telepresence Equipment QView again showed declining results for the first quarter of 2014 (1Q14), with overall videoconferencing equipment revenue decreasing -20.0% quarter over quarter and -15.9% year over year. Total worldwide enterprise video equipment market revenue in 1Q14 reached $473.5 million. The total number of video units sold in 1Q14 was also down -13.3% quarter over quarter and 6.2% year over year.

From a market segment perspective, multi-codec immersive telepresence equipment revenue was down -25.2% quarter over quarter and -33.5% year over year, with immersive telepresence units down -34.7% quarter over quarter and -25.9% year over year. Room-based video system revenue was down -13.9% quarter over quarter and -10.1% year over year. Room-based units sold were down -13.7% quarter over quarter, but only declined -1% year over year. Video infrastructure equipment - including MCUs and other video-related infrastructure products – declined -29.2% quarter over quarter and -13% year over year.

Regionally, only Latin America (1.8%) showed positive quarter-over-quarter revenue growth in 1Q14. All the other major regions showed quarter-over-quarter revenue declines. And all the major regions showed year-over-year revenue declines in 1Q14 – Europe Middle East & Africa (-19.8%), Asia/Pacific (-16.4%), North America (-13.4%), and Latin America (-5.1%).

"We continue to see the impact of delayed customer buying decisions, lower-cost systems, more software-centric products, and competitive cloud-based video service offerings on the worldwide enterprise video equipment market," said Rich Costello, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Communications Infrastructure, at IDC. "The weak vendor results are also indicative of the ongoing transition from a primarily hardware-based reporting model to one impacted by the interest in and growth of video subscription services. On the bright side, most or all of these vendors are now offering cloud-based video alternatives to customers too – in addition to their own lower cost, premises-based systems."

1Q14 Vendor Highlights

  • Cisco's 1Q14 results showed decreases of -27.8% quarter over quarter and -22.4% year over year in video equipment revenue. But Cisco remains the leader in enterprise videoconferencing equipment with a 40.1% share of the worldwide market.
  • Polycom's revenue decreased -7.3% quarter over quarter and -8.4% year over year in 1Q14. Polycom ranks second in enterprise videoconferencing equipment with a 28.9% share of the worldwide market.
  • Huawei's quarter-over-quarter revenue decreased -42% quarter over quarter and -1.9% year over year in 1Q14. Huawei still ranks third with a 7.8% share of the worldwide enterprise videoconferencing market.

"As dismal as these quarterly numbers are, video as a key component of collaboration continues to place high on the list of priorities for many organizations," said Petr Jirovsky, Research Manager, Worldwide Networking Trackers. "IDC believes that among the challenges customers are currently trying to work through are a market transition and determining exactly what, when, and how to provision their video deployments as more software-centric and cloud-based service offerings become part of the enterprise video market landscape."
