Ibisworld Research has released a report that VoIP was the fastest growing technology of the past decade based on cumulative revenue growth from 2000 through 2009. According to Ibisworld, the VoIP industry grew at 179035% over the decade while the second largest industry growth was in Search Engines which grew at 1656% - in other words, according to Ibisworld the VoIP industry as a whole grew 100 times more than any other industry between 2000 and 2009. I have to take these numbers with a certain level of skepticism. I am quite prepared to believe that VoIP was indeed the fastest growing industry over that time. VoIP is almost ubiquitous at this point and far more people and businesses depend on phones than on searching the internet. And almost all internet search growth has come at one company (or at most three companies if you want to count Microsoft and Yahoo) while VoIP growth has come at hundreds of companies. The study also notes that VoIP revenues only really started in 2002
The full top ten list is here.
