Posted by Michael Bloch in ecommerce (Sunday January 22, 2006 )

According to a new study from the Radicati Group, Inc. there are over 660 million email users globally who collectively have over 1.2 billion active email addresses. 135 billion emails are sent each day, unfortunately over 67% are spam.

Around 65% of global mailboxes are situated with a webmail service provider or ISP and only 2% of mailboxes are cell phone specific.

The Radacati Q4 2005 Market Numbers Update projects that the email archiving market will double annually over the next four years and the value of the wireless email market will increase by over 300% over the same period.

Revenue generated by the Instant Messaging market is expected to increase by 27% annually during the next 4 years with messaging software itself experiencing an annual revenue growth rate of 9% between 2005 and 2009.
