Research and Markets has announced the addition of Frost & Sullivan’s new report “Analysis of Asia Pacific Hosted Email Market”.

Hosted Email in Asia Pacific to Accelerate toward $234.7 Million in 2017 as it Gets Integrated into Cloud

Data Security Concerns Need to be Addressed for the Hosted Email Model to Gain Wider Acceptance

Hosted mailboxes are gaining wider representation in the mix of total mailboxes in the Asia Pacific, though its share was only 6 to 9 percent in 2010. Its lower cost of ownership, ability to improve employees’ mobility, and multiple devices accessibility are helping it steadily build on the foothold it gained in the market. Significantly, hosted email’s shift to cloud computing – both public and private cloud – has reduced its overall costs and enhanced its capability of disaster recovery and data protection. Enterprise hosted email service providers need to move their offerings into the cloud space and integrate them with other hosted/cloud unified communications (UC) components, says the analyst of this research.

It also offers the advantages of greater efficiency, larger mailbox space, and not needing expensive software email licenses. Enterprises are expected to turn to hosted emailing for its lower subscription charge with almost no requirement for operation or IT support.

While the larger enterprises tend to gravitate toward the hybrid model of on-premise software and hosted services, most small office home office (SOHO) and small enterprises prefer the free webmail or the subscription model. Global service providers that wish to gain local presence have to battle cultural and user preference for Asians as well as market regulations in emerging markets such as China, India, and the ASEAN. The impending price erosion will also pressure vendors as the market moves toward maturity. Hosted email has not yet become a huge success in the business environment because customers place desire on data security, service reliability, scalability, control, and disaster recovery.
