Unified Communication as a Service (UCaaS) is amongst one of the top developing technologies and is gaining the interest of various developer communities and enterprises. UCaaS refers to a permanently updated, pre-integrated, ready-to-go, and standardized service, which improves productivity as it drives business processes and decision making along with reducing costs. 

Transparency Market Research (TMR), a business intelligence company, throws light on the prime forces driving and inhibiting the development of the global UCaaS market. In addition, it elaborates upon the top services, delivery models, and lucrative regions driving the growth of the market and their predicted state in the coming years. 

Q. What forces are fuelling and restraining the growth of the global UCaaS market?

The global UCaaS market stood at US$8.23 bn in 2015 and is anticipated to touch US$79.3 bn by 2024 end, rising at a whopping 29.4% CAGR during the forecast period.  The low cost of ownership in comparison with other communications tools and the consistent service support presented by UCaaS solutions are amongst the top factors providing impetus to the development of this market. In addition, the rising utilization of mobile devices will also positively impact the development of this market. 

A number of studies have also presented that there is noticeable rise in the count of mobile workers globally.
