Research Highlights

  • Growth will be most robust in the Asia-Pacific region, which anticipates a CAGR of 18.1% through 2022. By size, the market will be largest in North America, with an estimated 2022 value of $13.9 billion.
  • The transition to modern cloud and data center networking reduces provisioning time, increases network bandwidth and operates at lower costs.
  • By technology, the market will be led by software, with a 2022 value estimated at $13.6 billion and a CAGR of 16.0%.

“Fuelled by the twin enablers of enhanced network processors and software-defined networks, cloud and data center networks are on track to provide performance, reliability and cost-efficient breakthroughs over the next five years,” report author Michael Sullivan wrote. “These capabilities answer the need for programmable networks that leverage denser chip sets and distributed infrastructure that operate in converged architectures and software-defined data centers.”

Retail Industry Faces Challenges When Upgrades Are Considered

While cloud and data center networks can be seamlessly integrated into a number of sectors, challenges await those in the retail industry considering an upgrade. Many retailers keep IT spending low and new environments must accommodate large transaction volumes, significant scale and e-commerce traffic utilization. Standardization, the report notes, can help resolve many of those issues and customized platform designs.
