Study Sees API Marketplace as Move in Right Direction but also Missed Opportunities by Carriers

Telecom API Market

Telecom API Market Sizing and Analysis

This is the 7th Year of Telecom API Market Coverage by Mind Commerce

Application Programming Interfaces (API) are a fundamentally recognized term in all IT-centric industries. Virtually all enterprise verticals use APIs to allow them to collaborate more closely with external partners such as application developers and third-party service providers.

The mobile communications industry is no different in this respect. Carriers worldwide are recognizing that collaborating with partners using APIs can be used to generate new sources of revenue, drive innovation, increase competitiveness and retain and attract new customers.

In collaboration with Ribbon Communications, AT&T has recently launched a Telecom API based Communication Enabled Application Marketplace, which is something that Mind Commerce has recommended since 2011. Ribbon is also working with Koninklijke PTT Nederland (KPN) to support the KPN API Store.

For many larger Telecom API market vendors, a substantial proportion of revenue continues to be generated from SIP Trunking in support of their client’s VoIP, UC, and other IP-based communications apps and services. However, many smaller players are innovating in areas that have high growth potential such as analytics data, device information, edge computing, and number management for calls, data, and subscribers.

Longer term, Mind Commerce sees CSPs leveraging Telecom APIs and related tools to support a variety of industry requirements in which carriers are amply positioned to leverage their market position. Those opportunities include Internet of Things (IoT) authentication, robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) platforms, and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC).

IoT in particular represents a huge and largely untapped market for CSPs, which Mind Commerce sees emerging once carriers begin to fully leverage 5G for IoT apps and services. Mind Commerce has identified the opportunity for carriers to act as a orchestrator/mediator within the IoT ecosystem.

Edge Computing related Telecom API market revenue reaches $395M in North America by 2023. Total global Telecom API related revenue will reach $442.1.1B by 2024. The study covers all major regions. While smallest in revenue at $48.6B by 2024, MEA is fastest growing region at CAGR 31.7%. Telecom API support of IoT remains a high priority cellular operator-only opportunity
