The Truth Behind Video Conferencing Statistics

The Truth Behind Video Conferencing Statistics

There's no question that we live in a world that's becoming increasingly remote — especially when it comes to how we function in the workplace. In part due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in part due to advanced technology that has improved our ability to connect wherever we're located, businesses have begun to rely more heavily on virtual tools that allow them to meet, connect, share, and collaborate, all without having to be in the same office. Alongside the rise in remote connections comes substantial increase in the need for video conferencing.

Video conferences, or virtual meetings with colleagues, clients, or potential collaborators, allow professionals to connect and conduct business wherever they are using an internet connection. As long as the meeting host has a tool that allows them to capture, stream, and swap live video feeds in real-time, and participants also have a computer and access to the web, they can engage as if they were in the same space.

If your business is reliant on video conferencing, or you're curious about whether it's a tool that might work for your company, we've compiled a list of statistics that demonstrate how common video conferencing is, how well it works, and what tools people use to conduct video conferences.

78% of Enterprises Use Video Conferencing for Team Meetings

Video conferencing is a widely adopted tool for internal communications.

Video Conferencing Statistics Show the Market Will Reach $50 Billion by 2026

The video conferencing market has been growing for years, and the COVID-19 pandemic only sped up its growth. The market crossed $14 billion in 2019, and researchers predict it will reach $50 billion by 2026. This means that we can look to rely on more video conferencing in the next few years and see the development of more tools for businesses in the industry.

After a video conference is complete, hosting recorded videos of what took place can provided added value for those who attended and want to review what happened, and for those who could not attend. It's especially useful when the same URL can be used for the event and the recording, which is a benefit unique to professional-grade hosting platforms like Viostream.
