By 2025, over 70% of mobile subscribers are anticipated to use mobile video calling solutions in these regions; owing to high smartphone ownership and the ubiquitous availability of video calling services.

VoLTE Users to Exceed 5.5 billion by 2025

The research also predicts that the global number of VoLTE connections will reach 5.5 billion by 2025; rising from 3.3 billion in 2021.

This growth of 60% over the next four years will be accelerated by increasing adoption of 5G subscriptions by mobile subscribers, as VoLTE services are included in 5G standards. The report recommends that increasing the level of virtualisation within core networks should be considered a priority for operators to handle increasing VoLTE traffic.
