Wainhouse Releases Q4 Market SpotCheck for Group Video Conferencing Endpoints

Analyst Take: Wainhouse’s Q4 Market SpotCheck for Group Video Conferencing Endpoints has been released, detailing the worldwide market for group video conferencing endpoints during Q4 2022. It provides detailed statistics on meeting room endpoint systems and on-premises/private cloud video infrastructure (MCUs, gateways, etc.).

Wainhouse assembled the analysis by collecting data directly from vendors or deriving estimates using relevant information such as previous shipment reports, data from associated products, in-person briefings, and publicly available information.

Wainhouse segments the room video conferencing market into the following product segments:

  • Multi-Codec Systems
  • Single-Codec Systems (including Android-based Room Systems)
  • Executive Systems
  • Reference Design Systems (PC-based Room Systems)
  • Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) Room Peripherals
  • On-premises infrastructure

Q4 results were a welcome relief after the unexpected revenue and unit sales downturn in Q3. While the Q4 results show some improvement over Q3, the overall trend still shows a decrease in revenue and unit count compared to the same quarter in the previous year. We believe this results from the constant resetting of purchase patterns without the exuberance of pandemic IT buying that occurred in 2020 and 2021.

That aside, when looking at the conclusion of 2022, we can see that the adoption of video is much higher than before 2020, and the resulting user base continues to drive room enablement to levels above pre-pandemic levels.
