The global IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) market is expected to grow from USD 1.23 Billion in 2017 to USD 4.26 Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 16.85% during the forecast period from 2018-2025. Major drivers that fuel the growth of IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) market are:

  • Increasing network infrastructure worldwide
  • Reduced operating expense and capital expenditure
  • Emergence of 5G

Market Summary:

IMS are used for integrated network of telecommunications carrier to send voice, video, and texts through IP network. These IP network uses packet communications and encodes the message to transfer it through wired or wireless network. The IMS enables operators to provide new services online without forcing subscribers to change carriers and can be easily used on mobile phones, personal digital assistants (PDAS), and desktops/laptops. The IMS provides efficient and robust services for the transmission of the data or information.


Increasing network infrastructure worldwide is anticipated to drive the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) market:

Increasing network infrastructure worldwide and reduced operating expense and capital expenditure are the key driving factors for the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) market. The reluctance in transiting from the legacy infrastructure to a virtualized infrastructure and lack of skilled workforce may limit the growth of market. However, emergence of 5G and huge opportunity for network operators in volte and Voice over Wi-Fi is expected to boost the IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) market over the forecast period.
