Global Market for Virtual Communication is Expected to Grow to over USD 20 bn by 2028

Amsterdam, NL - May 15, 2020 -

Communication is one of the most valued elements of any business.  Although face-to - face communication is one of the often-used forms of communication, finding common time for stakeholders to meet may be too difficult, and arranging a meeting in a major corporation with remote branches would require each individual to spend time and money in travelling. As COVID-19 started to spread all over the world in February 2020, many companies have activated no-travel and work-from-home policies for their employees. Virtual communication platforms that offer video and audio-conferencing solutions and web conferencing systems has been proven advantageous amidst the crises for companies to hold everyday meetings and coordinate with clients, customers, and employees. A major tech company “Twitter” announced on May 13, 2020 to make work from home policy permanent all even after the pandemic ends. This policy benefits employees with saving money on commute and finds more flexibility when it comes to work-life balance.

Video conferencing platforms are mainly used for cost-effective, real-time, and long-distance connectivity between teams located at different locations. Since work from home has become increasingly popular in recent years, providing an effective video conferencing platform is now more relevant than ever. Having an effective video conferencing platform will make it easier for workers to operate from home, with most businesses now having several branch offices. Video conferencing is expected to radically change the way people communicate for business across the globe.

5G technology which is yet another step-by-step update for mobile networking technology, is also an enabler for the new digital era industry 4.0. The ultra-stable low latency connectivity of 5G is supposed to make it possible to have round-trip latency in the millisecond range. This will promote the development of virtual real-time systems that enable remote physical tactile interactions. Round-trip sub-millisecond latency, along with 5G network reliability and usability, will allow a new generation of 5G tactile internet implementations.

A study conducted indicates that daily face-to-face interactions were the most effective (93%), followed by audio conference calls (90%), videoconferencing (84%) and group email messages or chat groups (79%), while internal and external social media platforms were listed by 62% and 39%, respectively. Virtual communication has grown from an alternative to a necessity for doing business. From virtual estate to automated multi-language data translation to extensive telemedicine surges, workers in various sectors use various virtual communication platforms to conduct their day-to-day conferences.
