Palo Alto, CA – October 13, 2010 – The latest study by The Radicati Group, Inc., “Instant Messaging Market, 2010-2014” offers an in-depth analysis of the Instant Messaging market. Instant Messaging is defined as real-time text messaging transmitted through a network between two or more users. The Instant Messaging market is comprised of products or services that either facilitate IM conversations or secure and manage its usage. Currently, many instant messaging services go beyond simple text-based messaging and offer other features such as voice chat, video chat, social network connectivity, and support for mobile devices.

The study divides the market into four segments: Public IM, Enterprise IM, IM Management and Security, and IM Aggregators. It provides installed base and revenue market share by vendor, four-year forecasts, breakouts by region and business size, and an in-depth analysis of business use of Public IM.

This study provides an analysis of leading market players: AOL, Bloomberg, Cisco, eBuddy, Facebook, FaceTime, Fring, Global Relay, Google, ICQ, IBM, Meebo, Microsoft, MySpace, Novell, Quest Software, Skype, Symantec, Tencent, Yahoo!, and others.

In 2010, worldwide IM accounts will total 2.3 billion, and will grow to 3.4 billion by 2014.
