Further, the report includes the latest trends and opportunities such as high preference for green offices. With increasing adoption of fax services, the consumption of paper can be controlled to a large extent, which can lead to the greener and cleaner environment. Other trends explained in the report are migration to the cloud-based faxing model, availability of hybrid fax solutions, and vendor consolidation.

Fax Services Market: Segmental Overview
The Healthcare sector will contribute maximum revenue

In terms of industry sectors, the use of fax services is high in the healthcare and financial sectors because of the regulatory compliance such as HIPPA and data protection laws. This trend will also continue during the forecast period. There is also a strong contribution from government, education institutions, manufacturing, and law firms to the revenue of the market from across the globe. Small-scale manufacturing, transportation, and logistics providers will enable the growth of the market through adoption of fax services during the forecast period. Similarly, in terms of deployment model, the market will witness more growth in the cloud-based faxing services segment than the on-premises segment. Similarly, the production fax market will be the dominant revenue contributor.

Large enterprises are the major contributors of fax services with 48.6% of share to the market. The market share of the home office users segment is likely to decline during the forecast period because of the growth of SMEs.

Fax Services Market: Geographical Analysis
North America to account for the largest market share followed by Europe

North America will continue to be a major revenue generating region during the forecasted period, with identified growth among SMEs in all industry sectors. In APAC, traditional fax solutions, which include fax machines and on-premises fax solutions are still prevalent. This region also records high growth in the use of desktop software for faxing needs, which is declining the usage of telephony faxing. The adoption of cloud-based fax in APAC is high in countries such as Australia and China. In Europe, the migration to cloud-based and hybrid fax services will be a key driver for the growth of the market. There are also corporate customers that use on-premises fax server solutions hosted in data centers.
