Mobile edge computing is a network architecture that enables IT and cloud-computing capabilities at the edge of a cellular network. It is a new option for network providers challenged to meet consumer demands for improved coverage and greater bandwidth. It is mainly used to reduce network congestion and improve applications by performing related processing tasks closer to the end user. The technology is designed to be implemented at cellular base stations, providing rapid deployment of applications and other customer services. The increasing need among enterprises to deliver QoE along with rising demand for low-latency processing and real-time automated decision-making solutions are anticipated to boost the growth of this market. However, the lack of required infrastructure and deployment capabilities are obstructing the growth of the market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Mobile Edge Computing Market

In the first quarter of 2020, the world was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The outbreak was declared as the global pandemic by WHO, as it has spread in many countries across the globe and raised the number of cases multi-folds in few weeks. The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely hit many economies around the globe. The combat measures such as complete lockdown and quarantine to fight against COVID-19 have put strong adverse impacts on many industries across the globe, including the telecommunication industry.

The COVID-19 outbreak will have a serious impact on the mobile edge computing market because the GDP of the many countries has taken a toll, and adoption of 5G technology will be delayed because the 3GPP standards body has been sidelined by the COVID-19 outbreak. Moreover, the possibility of a general economic recession in response to the pandemic could severely shrink IT budgets in the coming months, making the potential customer base for new 5G technology commensurately smaller. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the growth of 5G support smartphone sales and network deployment will likely be slowed, which can obstruct the development of the mobile edge computing market to some extent.

Moreover, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many countries are postponing the deployment of 5G technology, which can directly hamper the growth of the mobile edge computing market. For instance, United Internet's CEO, Ralph Dommermuth, said that the construction of its subsidiary 1&1 Drillisch's 5G network would experience delays due to current measures adopted in the country to prevent a further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany. 5G buildout could take a short to medium-term hit because of economic slowdown given the spread of COVID-19 outbreak globally and resulting in supply chain disruption, 5G technology hardware delays and general effects of the economic downturn. But in the longer term, the burgeoning needs for home connectivity, digital health and even economic stimulus measures may give 5G technology buildout a boost. So, it is expected that 2020 would be a tough time for the growth of the mobile edge computing market.
