The Hosted VoIP market has seen exceptional growth in the first six months of 2015 with the total number of Hosted VoIP seats growing from 1,649,219 to 1,908,673 – a growth of 15.73%. This represents the largest growth that Cavell has seen in a six monthly period since we started tracking the market.

Providers who focus on the Large Enterprise segment (over 1000 seats) and providers who focus on the Micro segment (1-9 seats) have all added significant seats in the last six months and Cavell has again not seen much growth in the midmarket (50-500 seats). The growth from the large enterprise segment was encouraging as Cavell has seen providers in this space struggle to add seats in the past due to the length of time to migrate large legacy bases.

Cavell has also seen an increase in M&A activity in the last six months, both strategic and “fire” sales. Currently Cavell is tracking 86 Hosted VoIP providers in the UK of which a large number have revenues below £10m. With platform providers entering the market as well with their own cloud platforms (Avaya, Genband, Broadsoft, Mitel), the face of the UK market could change rapidly as competition may drive the market to consolidate further.
