Palo Alto, CA – February 13, 2017 – A new study from the Radicati Group provides an in-depth analysis of the market for Instant Messaging (IM) and Mobile Messaging (also referred to as Mobile IM or Mobile Chat) from 2017 to 2021. The study provides extensive data regarding current user and account installed base, four-year forecasts, breakouts by region, business size, and other variables. The report also provides an overview of leading IM and Mobile Messaging solutions.

Instant Messaging is popular with both consumer and business users. IM continues to see strong adoption in the workplace due to its immediacy and ease of use. Enterprise IM solutions, which offer enterprise-grade functionality and security as well as integration with conferencing and collaboration platforms, are gaining penetration with business organizations of all sizes.

Mobile Messaging (also known as Mobile IM or Mobile Chat), defined as strictly mobile-to-mobile messaging, has emerged in recent years as a very popular form of communication, with exponential growth. While the boundaries between traditional desktop IM and Mobile Messaging are blurring due to increased interoperability, a significant user base still relies mainly on mobile IM networks such as WhatsApp, WeChat and many others.
