A new study by The Radicati Group “Enterprise Wireless Email Market Trends, 2003-2007” shows that wireless email access has increased the amount of time that employees can put into their work.
The study provides market size, four-year forecasts, technology and device trends, and competitive data for the Enterprise Wireless Email market. Research indicates that employees using wireless email will have put in an extra 55 minutes of work per day. This will grow to 80 minutes by year-end 2007.
The study projects that despite a wavering economy and relatively unstable carrier networks, almost 2 million business professionals will be using enterprise wireless email by year-end 2003. Growth in the number of wireless email users will be driven by the influx of affordable and highly- functional mobile devices on the market, as well as the reduction in the price of wireless email servers and solutions.
Behind-the- firewall enterprise solutions will continue to garner a majority of the corporate market as most enterprises prefer to have full IT control over corporate communications. By year-end 2003, revenues for enterprise wireless email vendors will reach $228 million, growing steadily to $812 million by 2007, the study says.
