Video optimization market shares 2013

This is the time of the year, when, after releasing the mobile video optimization 2013 report, I provide a little insight on the movers and shakers of that market segment and their progress over the past year.

As usual, I provide market share calculations in term of deployment per vendor, the unit being one operator / country. For instance, Verizon Wireless counts for one deployment, even though the operator might deploy 40+ data centers. Groups such as Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom or Telefonica count for each of the properties where the technology is deployed.

The market share calculations are based on a proprietary {Core Analysis} database, collecting data such as vendors, resellers, value of the deployment in term of total cost of ownership for the operator, operator name, country and region. These data are cross-referenced from vendors' and operators' individual disclosures. This database also includes over 150 opportunities in video optimization that are at different stage of maturity (internal evaluation, vendor trial, RFI, RFx...) and will close over the next 18 months.

The market share is valid at the time of publishing but change on a weekly basis, as new deals are awarded.

The market share in term of revenue is not published here but is available as part of my workshop on the video optimization market. The rankings in term of revenue per vendor are quite different from the installed market share, as different price strategies and different geographic markets are considered.

Market shares

  • ByteMobile

ByteMobile is still the market leader in this segment, post Citrix acquisition. The company, with an estimated 35% market share remains stable and has grown with the market in the last year.

  • Mobixell Networks

Mobixell Networks ascends this year to the second place in our ranking, with 19% market share. The company has grown faster than the market in term of share acquisition.

  • Flash Networks

Flash Networks is in third place with a 15% market share. The company has seen its market share grow slower than the market last year.

  • Venturi Wireless

Making its entry in fourth place this year is Venturi Wireless, who claims most of its deployments through an OEM channel with a market share of 10%. The company has been growing faster than the market last year.

  • The rest

The remaining 21% is shared between (by alphabetical order) Allot, Avvasi,  Mahindra Comviva,  Openwave Mobility, Opera Skyfire and Vantrix.

Question? comments? please do not hesitate to contact me.

The sampling this year is larger than last year, as a result from new disclosures from emerging vendors that were stealth / not public last year. As a result, market shares are a little different and should not be directly compared with last year's, since some of the disclosures show deployments that predates last year's calculations.
