Telecom API Market Sales Revenue to Significantly Increase in the Next Few Years


Application Programming Interface (API) is a programming language used by an application to communicate with the control programs such as database management systems or communication protocols. Telecom APIs allow carriers to pass valuable data to third parties, which they monetize on an asymmetric basis as typically mobile network operators do not provide services to end-users. The global telecom API market is segmented on the basis of types of API, user type, and region.

On the basis of API, the market is broadly segmented into Short Message Service (SMS), Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), & Rich Communication Services (RCS) API; Interactive Voice Response (IVR)/ voice store & voice control API; payment API; Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) API; ID/ Single Sign-On (SSO) & subscriber API; location API; and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) & Internet of Things (IoT) API.
