SDN and NFV Market Growing at 86% CAGR to 2020

CHICAGO, August 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- adds Software Defined Networking (SDN) Market & Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Market by Solution, Service and End User - Global Forecasts to 2020 research report published in July 2015 to its library.

Complete report on SDN market and NFV market spread across 203 pages, profiling 10 companies and supported with 80 tables and 55 figures is now available at .

Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Market is forecast to grow at 86% CAGR from being worth approx. USD 2 Billion in 2015 to USD 45 Billion+ in 2020. North America is expected to lead the market; Asia-Pacific including Japan is the fastest growing market and is expected to soon replace Europe to become the second biggest contributor in the market. SDN serves every business need related to networking such as centralized and distributed network architecture in local area networks (LAN), wide area networks (WAN), and in data centers.  

SDN is creating efficient and effective networking environment in almost each industry vertical, but telecom and IT, and cloud services providers are the heavy adopters of it. In SDN architecture, any number of applications can be served by services providers and improve customer satisfaction. SDN architecture eliminates multiple layer architecture required by traditional network architecture by decoupling the control layer and provides virtualized control from a remote location. By using SDN applications, service providers can use proper bandwidth management in order to provide better browsing experience to end users. The major restraints of this market are the security issues related to data transfer and lack of industry standard for SDN.

Companies profiled in this 2015 SDN and NFV market research include Cisco Systems, Inc., Hewlett-Packard, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), Intel Corporation, Juniper Networks, Dell Inc., NEC Corporation, PICA8, Inc., Plexxi, Inc. and Big Switch Networks, Inc.

Rising need for mobility, surging cloud services, varying traffic patterns and increasing complexity of networks and data center consolidation and server virtualization are the major SDN and NFV market drivers discussed in this research. Privacy and security issues along with limited knowledge among enterprise end users are the major industry restraints. For the new and existing SDN and NFV market players, opportunities like increasing SDN inrastructure vendors and value-added resellers (VARS), technological advancements, increased adoption of private clouds and innovative services offered telecom operators are discussed. Market challenges like lack of governance and standardization as well as managing traditional technology and surviving SDN hype cycle have been mentioned.

Within the SDN and NFV industry trends chapter, SDN adoption factors are discussed under which academia and open source communities covered include Opendaylight, Opencontrail, Open Network Operating System (ONOS), Floodlight, Nodeflow, Mininet, Snabb Switch, Openvswitch, Pantou, NOX, POX, Jaxon, Routeflow, Flowvisor and Flowscale. Under the technology and roadmap section of this chapter, points like inevitability of SDN, functionality to Openflow controllers, revolutionizing network utilization, transitioning for competitive advantage and enterprise commercialization have been covered. Standards like Data Center Bridging (DCB), Fiber Channel Over Ethernet (FCOE), Network Virtualization Using Generic Routing Encapsulation (NVGRE), Shortest Path Bridging (SPB), Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL), Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator (VEPA), Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN) have also been covered.

On a related note for the IT and Telecommunication market, has multiple newly published as well as relevant research titles on SDN, NFV and more:

North America Software Defined Networking (SDN) (By End Users (Enterprises, CSP, TSP),By Solution (High Performance Computing, Network Virtualization, Server Virtualization, Virtualization Security))-Regional Advancement, Market Size And Forecast (2013-2019): This research presumes that the government, BFSI, academia, telecom and IT verticals will display tremendous growth throughout the forecast period. However, emerging revenue pockets, namely the energy and healthcare verticals will demonstrate a significant increase in the period. Major challenges faced by the vendors in this space are the lack of industry standards for SDN solutions and stiff competition in the market. Supported with 34 tables and 42 figures, this research on North America SDN market is available at .

The NFV, SDN & Wireless Network Infrastructure Market: 2015 - 2020 - Opportunities, Challenges, Strategies and Forecasts: This research indicates that service provider centric NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) and SDN (Software Defined Networking) investments are expected to reach nearly $21 Billion by 2020. These investments will primarily focus on mobile core/EPC, policy/IMS services, RAN (Radio Access Networks), OSS/BSS, data center, backhaul and CPE/home environment. Driven by the promise of TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) reduction, operators are aggressively jumping on the NFV and SDN bandwagon, targeting deployments across a multitude of areas.
