Palo Alto, CA – December 5, 2011 – The latest study by The Radicati Group, Inc., “Instant Messaging Market, 2011-2015” offers an in-depth analysis of the Instant Messaging market. Instant Messaging (IM) solutions provide real-time communication and presence indicators between two or more people on a network. Instant Messaging solutions are increasingly blurring the line with Unified Communications by adding voice and video chat capabilities, as well as mobile device access and integration with Social Networks.

The study categorizes the market into four segments: Public IM Networks, Enterprise IM, IM Management and Security, and IM Aggregators. For each segment, it provides detailed user 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: Actiance, AOL, Bloomberg, Cisco, eBuddy, Facebook, Fring, Global Relay, Google, IBM, Meebo, Microsoft, Novell, Skype, Symantec, Tencent, Thomson Reuters, Yahoo!, and others.

According to the study, there are over 2.5 billion Instant Messaging accounts worldwide in 2011, growing to 3.3 billion by 2015.
