The latest study by The Radicati Group, “Messaging Software Market, 2005-2009” provides market size and trends, four-year forecasts, and competitive information for the worldwide messaging software market. The report also includes detailed e-mail traffic statistics by User Type, Mailbox Type, Region, Business Size, and Spam Traffic for consumer and corporate markets.
The study divides the messaging software market into two segments: Corporate Messaging Software – on premises e-mail solutions for businesses, and Messaging Software for Service Providers – software used for hosted e-mail services. Together, the two segments generated $2.5 billion in 2005, growing to $3.6 billion in 2009.
E-mail security continues to be a top concern for businesses and service providers. Spam traffic totaled 91 billion messages per day in 2005, and this figure is expected to reach 228 billion messages per day by 2009.
Microsoft maintained its lead over IBM Lotus in 2005 – MS Exchange has 23 million more seats than Lotus Domino. Uptake for Exchange 2003 continues to increase, and the release of Service Pack 2 for Exchange 2003, which includes DirectPush wireless e-mail technology, is expected to drive more users to Microsoft.
