UK SIP Trunking market shows lower growth then expected in the first half of 2015 July 30, 2015

The SIP Trunking market failed to grow as fast as expected in the first six months of 2015 growing by a total of 219,512 (14.92%) to reach a total market figure of 1,690,440 SIP Trunks. In the same period in 2014 the market only grew by 137,612 Trunks so although the market did not growing as fast as expected, there is still considerable growth.

The growth was mainly driven by the Large Enterprise segment (over 1000 Trunks) and Midmarket segment(50-500 Trunks). Interestingly, the Midmarket performed better then Cavell had forecast previously, as there has historically not been much growth in that segment due to a lack of focus of providers and the unavailability of affordable access for customers.

What Cavell are seeing is that the PSTN End-of-Life, announced by BT to be 2025, is going to have a major effect on the SIP Trunking market in the next few years. We are already seeing providers such as TalkTalk offer free SIP Trunks with their network and believe that there could be a race to the bottom as providers compete with each other to get ISDN customers to move to SIP.

It will also be interesting to see if/when providers start to deliver their SIP Trunks with applications overlaid to try to stabilize the falling price of SIP Trunks. At the moment it is an immature market as many Service Providers position their SIP Trunks as an ISDN replacement service but we believe there will be a drive in the future towards SIP Application services
