The top three segments of the global telecom API market are discussed below:

Global telecom API market by SMS, MMS, and RCS

The growth rate of the API market for SMS, MMS, and RCS services will increase during the forecast period due to the emergence of applications, which include services such as SMS, MMS, and RCS. The service providers for SMS and MMS cover around 800 networks in more than 200 countries across the globe. They provide SMS, RCS, and MMS API that enable the website, in which the SMS APIs were integrated and provide sending and receiving messages facility.

Reliable reply paths, availability of threading, seamless operation, easy and cost-efficient implementation, and scalability are some of the major advantages of SMS, MMS, and RCS. For instance, in 2016 February, Bustova, a bus ticket booking mobile application, was launched. Globe Labs' SMS API is used by the users to book their bus tickets and pay a reservation fee using their mobile prepaid airtime. At the bus terminal, on the day of the trip, the user can pick up the ticket and pay the bus operator directly.

Global telecom API market by payment

In organizations across the globe, the application developer focuses on security breaches and enterprise. Operators are deploying security solutions to keep their web and mobile applications safe from intrusions. The major factor driving the payment services is the increased requirement of the E-commerce and banking applications.

According to Jujhar Singh, a lead M2M and connected devices research analyst from Technavio, “Through payment APIs, the e-commerce application such as Amazon.com and Flipkart.com can integrate payment API during checkout and buy a page in their mobile app or web applications. Thus, payment API is not only easy to integrate but also makes the developer's life easier.”

Global telecom API market by maps/location

Maps or location-based APIs can utilize the location and provide the end-users with relevant information about the promotion and offers in particular locations. The application developers use APIs, which are user friendly. The APIs can also estimate the pick and drop time and calculate the prices within the google maps.

“Location-based service highlights the restaurant location on the restaurant webpage. Also, the telecom service providers can provide simple and valuable services through APIs. Telecommunication offers a complete portfolio of location-based services, which enhances the location-based services. The location-based services support the location information for both the indoor and outdoor environments,” says Jujhar.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Apigee
  • AT&T
  • MuleSoft
  • Orange
  • Twilio
  • Verizon Communications
