Asia Pacific Voice Over Lte Market Statistics: 2030
The Asia Pacific Voice Over LTE Market was valued at $3,618.48 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $179,569.42 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 47.7% from 2021 to 2030.
VoLTE is the technology in which voice calls are made over the LTE (Long Term Evolution) network. It provides superior voice quality and high internet speed over the standard networks. Moreover, VoLTE allows voice and data access simultaneously. The 4G LTE network is the mainstream foundation for the emergence of VoLTE. 4G LTE is around 20 times faster than any 3G broadband technology. Moreover, 4G LTE reduces battery drain rate more efficiently than 3G technology. Despite of the deployment of 4G LTE network for data, several service providers still prefer 3G CDMA and GSM platforms for voice calls. VoLTE is a long-term solution for voice calls as it is designed for the replacement of conventional mobile voice platforms by easy integration of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services including landline networks.
The Asia Pacific Voice over LTE market growth is influenced by several factors such as rise in demand for improved video and voice quality along with the high-speed internet and increasing investment in VoLTE across Asia Pacific. In addition, a presence of leading VoLTE market players in Asia Pacific fuel the growth of this market. However, delayed acceptance in emerging economies hampered the growth of the market to some extent. On the other hand, advent of the 5G Network connectivity and rise in demand for mobile UC (Unified Communications) are estimated to be opportunistic for the growth of the market.
In addition, the VoLTE technology provides Rich Communication Services (RCS) such as video calling, real time language translation, video voice mail, and instant messaging. These features are the new strengths for mobile vendors to compete against the OTT providers.
On the basis of technology, the voice over IP multimedia subsystem segment dominated the Asia Pacific voice over LTE market in 2020, and is expected to maintain its dominance in the upcoming years. IP Multimedia Subsystem or IMS is a standards-based architectural framework for delivering multimedia communications services such as voice, video and text messaging over IP networks. Voice Over IP Multimedia Subsystem (VoIMS) is a voice over LTE approach that uses IMS. An IP multimedia subsystem is a low-cost network infrastructure compared to other networks. The cost-effectiveness of this technology is driving the VoLTE market in Asia Pacific.
China dominates the Asia Pacific Voice Over LTE Market. The huge presence of subscribers of mobile phones in China is the primary reason for adoption of VoLTE services by telecom operators in the region. Moreover, faster connection speed along with better sound quality are some of the factors driving the growth of the VoLTE services in China. In addition, the launch of 5G services and healthy adoption of these services by people of China is also driving the growth of the VoLTE market in China.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID-19 outbreak has low impact on the growth of the Asia Pacific VoLTE market, owing to the fact that the government and private sectors in emerging countries are working together to speed up the development of 5G and VoLTE infrastructure in the wake of the pandemic. For instance, in Thailand, mobile network operators (MNO) are joining forces to provide 5G networks to hospitals. The Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), which is a special development zone of Thailand, mandates that 5G must cover approximately 50% of the area in 2020, which means that the equipment installation must commence this year in industrial areas.
Moreover, the COVID-19 impact has prompted every company and business to shift their business operations towards a remote work environment. As a result of the dire situation, companies began to implement the BYOD program or enterprise-owned equipment. Therefore, the need for high internet speed and better voice quality for proper communication has increased. Moreover, during the COVID due to WFH policies the demand for best in market smartphones and LTE enabled internet providers demand increased significantly. However, the shortage of revenue generation and delay in implementation of 5G services in many regions during COVID also hampered the Asia Pacific voice over LTE market growth.
Voice Over Lte Via Generic Access Network segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.
Top Impacting Factors
The Asia Pacific VoLTE Market is influenced by several factors such as rise in demand for improved video and voice quality along with the high-speed internet and increasing investment in VoLTE across Asia Pacific. In addition, presence of leading VoLTE market players in Asia Pacific fuels the growth of the market. However, delayed acceptance in emerging economies hampers the growth of the market to some extent. On the other hand, advent of the 5G Network connectivity and rise in demand for mobile Unified Communications (UC) are estimated to be opportunistic for the growth of the market.
Rise in demand for improved video and voice quality along with high-speed internet VoLTE technology allows voice calls over an LTE network. This technology harnesses data capabilities of LTE coupled with the traditional voice services on to the same LTE network. Hence, it empowers network operators to provide rich video, voice, and messaging services. Moreover, VoLTE enable operators to provide a set of standards based on services such as Rich Communication Services (RCS) that comprise video, real time language translation, instant messaging, voice mail, and video calling. Furthermore, the call quality associated with the network generations such as 2G and 3G was not high-definition. This has led to the emergence of 4G VoLTE to meet rise in demand for enhanced video and voice quality. For instance, according to the various studies, VoLTE delivers six times better call quality than 2G and up to three times that of 3G.

Corporate segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.
Presence Of Leading Volte Market Players In Asia Pacific
Asia Pacific has the highest number of VoLTE subscribers as well as operators across the globe. For instance, the number of subscriptions in this region is about 4.2 billion which accounts for around 53% of the total number of VoLTE subscriptions around the globe. In addition, the mobile network providers such as Bharati Airtel Limited, Reliance Jio, Vodafone, Digi, Yes 4G, U Mobile, and Dialog have ventured into the VoLTE technology and are heavily investing in this technology to provide enhanced services. Aforementioned factors significantly boost growth of the Asia Pacific Voice Over LTE Industry.
Emergence of 5G
5G network deployments are rolling out across numerous markets around the world, and its adoption rate is about four times that of its 4G LTE predecessor. This has led to the emerging need for networks that have been relying on 2G and 3G for voice to allow voice calls on 5G smartphones. VoLTE supports 5G LTE devices and enables 5G users to reap the benefits of voice over services effectively. The VoLTE technology's advantages in higher voice quality and voice-data concurrence capability are essential for 5G. For instance, as 5G no longer supports circuit-switched fallback (CSFB) for voice, it relies on VoLTE to provide voice service to their customers. Hence, emergence of 5G is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the Asia Pacific voice over LTE market.
