Telecommunication API: Market Overview
Application programming interface (API) is a language and message format that is used as an interface for software and its components to communicate and share data information with each other or a different control program such as communications protocol or database management system (DBMS). The migration from 3rd generation to LTE (Long Term Evolution) and the emerging 5th generation, that raises the demand for IPv6 transitions and IP connected devices, will increase the adoption of the Telecommunication API market globally. The increased usage of Internet of Things is expected to drive the global Telecommunication API market. Factors such as end-to-end visibility and the business value of Telecommunication API are also estimated to affect the market positively during the forecast period. The expansion in enterprise-related business models involving the improvised usage of the concealed data center infrastructure using virtualizing techniques to bring in a competitive advantage will boost the Telecommunication API market.
However, the revenue and profit margins flooding away from telecom operators by Over-The-Top (OTT) service providers restrains the proper growth of the Telecommunication API market globally.
Growth in the development and adoption of Internet connected devices is a key trend that is estimated to gain traction during the forecast period. A Telecommunication API plays an important role in Internet connection management. It provides assistance in the development of Internet connected devices.
Several upgrades developed one after the other in the ICT domain, with reference to telecommunication API, along with the proliferating growth rate of the market, has drawn Future Market Insights’ interest in studying and analyzing the market, so that we can offer our clients quantitative and qualitative analytical solutions for the Telecommunication API market, along with the recent developments and innovations.
Telecommunication API: Technology Innovation
Mozilla, Ericsson, and AT&T collaborated to develop a web browser integration of telephone services. This telecommunication API provided innovative and useful features, such as SMS and push-through-call notifications, recent contact history, and click-to-dial in browser capabilities.
Telecommunication API technology is being continuously upgraded to facilitate telecom automation. But, with multiple telecommunication API technologies being developed continuously, their integration into automation systems has become very cumbersome. In order to overcome this concern, telecommunication API developers are focusing on the formation of Speech Recognition and Vehicle-to-Cloud (V2C) connectivity Expert Groups, in order to develop standardized sets of APIs.
Telecommunication API: Competitive Landscaping
Some of the key players in the Telecommunication API market are Twilio, Inc., AT&T, Inc., Vodafone Group PLC, Alcatel-Lucent, Telefonica, Orange S.A., Google, Verizon Communications, Inc., CLX Communications, Fortumo, and among others. Aepona, a company that offers a foundation to develop, implement, and monetize Telecommunication API platforms, presented a Network as a Service (NaaS) business model that motivates and assists network service providers (NSPs) in the distribution and sales of their products using telecommunication API.
Telecommunication API: Market Segmentation
The global Telecommunication API market can be segmented on the basis of API type and user type. On the basis of API type, the market can be segmented into WebRTC Telecommunication API, content delivery telecommunication API, IVR/voice store and voice control telecommunication API, location API, SMS, MMS and RCS API, payment API, ID/SSO and subscriber telecommunication API, M2M and IoT telecommunication API, and others. On the basis of user type, the Telecommunication API market can be segmented into internal developers, long tail developers, enterprise developers, and partner developers.
Telecommunication API: Regional Outlook
Due to the high rate of smartphone users and the early adoption of 4G/LTE in the region, North America leads the global Telecommunication API market. Also, the presence of an extensive body of API developers boosts the telecommunication API market in this region.
Asia Pacific is estimated to grow its Telecommunication API market steadily during the forecast period. The progressive growth in the demand for 4G/LTE is considered to be a major driver of the Telecommunication API market in the region. The increasing number of smartphone and M2M devices is another factor that is expected to boost the APAC market for Telecommunication APIs.
