The latest study by The Radicati Group, “Corporate Wireless E-mail Market, 2005 – 2009,” provides a detailed analysis of the market for Corporate Wireless E-mail solutions that feature ‘push’ capabilities. These solutions deliver messages in real-time to mobile devices, and provide high bandwidth connections that enable the transmission of messages, synchronization of contacts, calendar and task data, and enable wireless access to enterprise applications.
The study includes mailbox installed base and revenue of wireless e-mail vendors and service providers, four year market forecasts, and demographic breakdowns by business size, industry, and employee type.
According to the study, new offerings from wireless carriers and the introduction of innovative wireless devices will drive growth in the Corporate Wireless E-mail market. Additionally, Microsoft’s DirectPush wireless e-mail technology, a free upgrade to Exchange 2003 scheduled for release in late 2005, is expected to bring wireless e-mail capabilities to a broad range of new users.
The Radicati Group expects that the Corporate Wireless E-mail mailbox installed base will increase from 6.5 million in 2005, to over 123 million in 2009. Revenue in the Corporate Wireless E-mail market is expected to exceed $2.1 billion by 2009.
