Video Conferencing Market Growth & Trends

The global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic forced several organizations to implement remote working, which created a significant demand for video conferencing software and applications such as Google Meet, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams. These applications are now playing a major role in facilitating employee collaboration and accelerating digital transformation. The heightened demand for these solutions is urging the market players to offer products with enhanced and distinguished features to gain a strong foothold. In 2020, Google LLC made its video meeting tool Google Meet generally available to remain competitive. The tool reportedly had more than 100 million meeting participants during that year, the news release added.

Besides business communication, video conferencing technology is also gaining momentum for social interaction. The growing need to set up an affordable, flexible, and scalable communication network for effective team collaboration, communication, and decision-making capability will positively influence the industry statistics over the upcoming years.

The industry is also witnessing substantial growth in the healthcare sector due to the emerging trend of telehealth across the globe. The emergence of the pandemic drastically increased the adoption of telehealth solutions. According to a study conducted in 2020, telehealth usage during the initial pandemic period increased from around 1% to as high as 80% across the areas where coronavirus was highly prevalent.
