In-Stat: VoIP Market Slowing Down?

A somewhat deceiving headline made me sit up and take notice this morning. A news item from In-Stat, titled: Struggling Economy Will Slow the Growth of Voice over IP (VoIP) in US Business Markets drew my attention.
 
A closer look at the release, and it turns out things aren't all grim for the VoIP market after all.
 
According to David Lemelin, In-Stat analyst:
 
"IP continues to be a partial voice solution for most businesses with VoIP, particularly among larger businesses. Therefore, there is significant room for growth even among businesses that have already adopted it."
 
Recent research by In-Stat found that:
 
·         32% of Enterprise size businesses say the economic situation has slowed their VoIP deployment plans.
·         Broadband IP Telephony remains the most common carrier-based business VoIP solution with revenues exceeding $1.1 billion in 2008, compared to $857 million for hosted IP Centrex service within the US.
·         Adoption varies significantly by size of business, with Enterprise businesses preferring a partial deployment, while SOHO businesses are more likely to go IP-only.
·         13% of US businesses use both carrier-based and premises-based IP solutions       
 
In-Stat's report 2008 US Business VoIP Overview: Stick to Fundamentals covers the U.S. business market for VoIP. The effort analyzes and provides end-user survey data by size of business for the following:
 
·         The key factors driving or impeding VoIP adoption
·         The impact of a slowing economy
·         Carrier versus premise-based solutions
·         Installed Vendor Market share
·         The multiple flavors of IP finding roots in the US business market
