Unified Communications Redefines the Value of Headsets in the Enterprise Space
This study provides an in-depth analysis of the global contact center and office headset market. The types of headsets covered in this research service are as follows: monaural, binaural, over the head, over the ear, convertible, omni-directional, noise-canceling, cordless, wireless, and PC.
The study offers global forecasts by unit shipment and revenue. It includes the Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, and North America regions. This study provides headset manufacturers and resellers a detailed analysis of the trends that are driving and restraining this market.
Finally, strategic recommendations will be made, which Frost & Sullivan consider to be important in order to guarantee competitiveness in this market.
Market Overview - Definitions:
This research service analyzes the global CC&O headset market, which includes corded and cordless headsets that are used in conjunction with any business phone (analog, digital, and IP phones, as well as PC-based soft clients), and are integrated with the rest of the enterprise communications infrastructure (premises-based TDM/IP platforms/hosted TDM/IP Centrex services).
This study covers enterprise-grade PC USB headsets that are used along with softphones and UC clients; however, mobile headsets that are used with cellular devices and smartphones are not discussed. The PC USB/normal office headsets used by the small office home office (SOHO) segment are not included in this research service.
Additionally, this study does not take into account the headsets purchased by employees (and used at their workplace).
This research service also includes multiuse/hybrid headsets that work with both desktop phones and mobile devices. In addition, the units or revenues associated with any headset infrastructure other than the headset itself, such as switchboxes, adapters, base stations, hubs, and amplifiers, are excluded.
Revenue in each regional market represents manufacturers' sales of CC&O headsets to service providers, distributors, retailers, resellers, OEM partners, and other distribution channels, as well as direct sales to enterprise customers.
Revenues are indicative of product sales. They do not include any service fee associated with maintenance programs, integration services, installation, and training.
In this study (for unit shipment and revenue forecasts), the global CC&O headset market is segmented into three regions, namely, NALA, EMEA, and Asia Pacific. However, these regions will be separated further.
