Cavell’s latest research shows that the Dutch Hosted VoIP market has a total of 820,000 Hosted VoIP business subscribers and now leads mainland Europe in terms of Hosted VoIP penetration in the business market.
Rob Kurver, Cavell’s Benelux Analyst, stated:
“The Netherlands market is so advanced because we have a combination of factors at play that has helped the adoption of these services. The Netherland market has good broadband coverage, is deregulated and Cavell have identified over 60 new businesses emerge to serve the market. Traditionally Hosted VoIP services have been adopted first by the SME market and the Netherlands benefits from a large number of small businesses.”
Within the 60 Service Providers that have emerged to serve the Dutch market, there are the traditional incumbent providers such as KPN and Ziggo, but also some very successful new Service Providers such as RoutIT, Voiceworks and Voys who have helped to create such a strong competitive marketplace. What is interesting is that 75% of the total number of seats are provided by top 10 providers so Cavell expects that there will be increased M&A activity in the future as the market consolidates. If we compare Netherlands with the UK, where Cavell have been publishing research for over 10 years, we see that the UK has 86 providers and although with a lot smaller potential market, the Netherlands has over 60 which highlights the strength and competition in the market.
Cavell held a launch event last week in Amsterdam and Brussels with some key Service Providers in each individual market attending and look forward to seeing them again at the European VoIP Summit on the 1st of March in London. We will also be releasing further reports on the Hosted VoIP market in other European regions in 2016.
