Infonetics Forecasts the Service Delivery Platform (SDP) Market to Near $6 Billion in 2017 Business Wire CAMPBELL, Calif. -- March 6, 2013 Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest Service Delivery Platform Software and Services report, which tracks the wireless and fixed-line service delivery platform (SDP) software and services that operators use to create and deliver services to their subscribers. ANALYST NOTE “The SDP opportunity is alive and well, but looks very different than it did even a few years ago,” notes Shira Levine, directing analyst for service enablement and subscriber intelligence at Infonetics Research. “Very few operators are investing in soup-to-nuts service delivery platforms anymore. Instead, they’re implementing discrete components of the SDP (like network exposure and web service environments) that allow them to deliver new services while reducing operational costs.” Levine continues: “We believe this trend will continue as operators expand beyond the consumer market and begin capitalizing on the growing enterprise opportunity, including helping businesses support their B-to-C strategies and insert themselves into the machine-to-machine (M2M) space.” SDP MARKET HIGHLIGHTS *In 2012, the global SDP software and services market totaled $3.6 billion, up 14% over 2011 *SDP services are expected to make up 75% of the SDP market by 2017 *Mobile deployments are the primary driver behind SDP growth, representing the bulk of SDP revenue *A handful of large suppliers continue to dominate the SDP landscape: Oracle leads the software segment, followed closely by Huawei; meanwhile on the services side, Ericsson pulled ahead of Huawei for 1^st place *New breeds of players are appearing on the SDP scene, such as API management vendors Mashery, Layer 7, and Apigee, and Infonetics expects the established SDP vendors to partner with or acquire these smaller suppliers *The global SDP market is forecast by Infonetics to reach $5.9 billion in 2017, with the strongest growth coming from developing regions in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, where operators are looking to counteract low ARPU by offering differentiated services CLIENT CONFERENCE CALL Clients, join Shira Levine Tuesday, March 19, at Noon ET for a live SDP market recap.
