DUBAI — NEC Corporation, a global leader in the global UC Call Control market, has retained the No.1 position as worldwide market leader in T3i Group’s latest InfoTrack Enterprise Communications report for Q3 2019, supported by increased sale in the UAE by its Master Distributor Blue Ocean Global
This is the second year of such recognition by the global research report that found NEC the No. 1 brand in these categories that reinforces the brand’s global positioning. NEC has led all manufacturers in global shipments in the Small and Medium Business (SMB) segments with 100 lines and below categories, for the last five years.
The news comes as the worldwide call control systems, such as Private Branch Exchange (PBX) or Private Automated Branch Exchange (PABX) systems, have been growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.9 percent from $4.73 billion in 2018 to $9.50 billion by 2023, according to a research report by Research and Markets, a global industry tracker.
NEC Corporation last year appointed Blue Ocean Global as its Master Distributor for SMB communications solutions.
“Our partnership with NEC Corporation has helped us to increase distribution of NEC’s products and I am pleased to see that the brand is increasing its global market share,” Shahzad Ahmed, chairman and chief executive officer of Blue Ocean Global.
“Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) are the largest employer in the UAE and the GCC and their contribution to the economies of the GCC countries are growing by the day. We are confident that our partnership with NEC will continue to help push the demand for such products in the region.”
T3i’s latest report noted that NEC retained its lead in total line shipments with a market share of over 16 percent globally. With its line shipments up 30.8 percent quarter-on-quarter, NEC achieved the highest global percentage quarter-to-quarter increase among vendors covered in T3i Group Q3 2019 report.
MZA Consultants’ Q3 2019 reporting on the global Call Control market zooms in on the SMB market, showing that NEC has led all manufacturers in global shipments in that segment for the last 5 years.
This success underscores the strength of NEC’s portfolio of communications solutions, the company’s commitment to expand its global enterprise communications footprint and the ability to serve customers worldwide to fullest satisfaction.
NEC offers a broad range of enterprise communications solutions — ranging from small to very large systems — that effectively support enterprise and SMB customers whose requirements span from traditional to full IP and 100% software-based solutions, and from premises-based to cloud deployments.
“Major driving factors of the hosted PBX market are an increasing need for enterprise mobility and rising adoption of the cloud and UC. The necessity to upgrade from traditional PBX to cloud-based PBX and low CAPEX and TCO involved in hosted PBX drives the market growth,” Research and Markets said in its report.
