Gorkem Yigit Senior Analyst, Research

"Operator spending in the VIP market was flat in 2018 because the SDM market had matured and the VMD market experienced changes that limited spending."

This report provides market share data for communications service provider (CSP) spending on telecoms-specific video and identity platforms (VIP) software and related services for 2018. It assesses which vendors are leading in the VIP market and provides profiles of the leaders and their challengers. The VIP market was flat in 2018 at USD4.7 billion; the decline in the challenging video management and delivery (VMD) market (-2%) was offset by the slight growth (1%) in the mature subscriber data management (SDM) market.

Key developments in the video and identity platforms market in 2018

  • The VIP market was flat in 2018. The decline in VMD spending (–2%) was offset by the slight growth (1%) in the SDM market.
  • Operators' VMD spending continued to decline. Limited spending on legacy transformations; Cisco and Ericsson's departure; saturation in some developed markets; prolonged transition to new services (OTT, UHD); and increased in-house development were the main factors.
  • The SDM market continued its growth in 2018, albeit at a slower rate due to its high maturity. New investments came from long-tail IMS/VoLTE (especially in China), NFV, IoT and subscriber data exposure use cases.
