The biggest market share of the Software Defined Networking (SDN) market by end user in 2014 is expected to be held by telecommunication providers who will continue their dominance in the market throughout the forecast period. The SDN solutions will gain traction as they become necessary to end users facing network problems, such as bottle-necking and reduction in data transfer speed over the network. The SDN technology actively presents solutions for various networking problems faced by telecommunication providers and enterprises, such as bottlenecks in the network, fall in data transfer speed throughout the network, limited programmability of the network, and almost none-to-limited flexibility of the network. Deploying SDN technology presents the opportunity of converting the network into a virtual network with simultaneous reduction in capital and operational expenses of the network.
Global SDN market by revenues is estimated to grow from $290 million in 2014 to $3,670 million by 2019. This represents a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 66.1% from 2014 to 2019. The SDN market is set to witness a Year-Over-Year (Y-O-Y) growth from 59.66% from 2014 to 2015 and is expected to reach 76.10% between 2018 and 2019
SDN solutions have huge potential in campus networks, enterprise data centers, multi-tenant data centers, and WAN/service providers/carrier networks. SDN solutions are critical to maintain the speed, agility, and programmability of networks.
This report segments the SDN market into three different categories, namely solutions, end users, and regions. The SDN market by solution can be divided into switches, controllers, cloud virtualization application, and network virtualization security. The SDN market by end user is categorized into telecommunication providers, cloud service providers, and enterprises. By region, the SDN market can be segmented into North America (NA), Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America (LA).
SDN is a recent technology and is still in the growth phase. “Open Networking Foundation” (ONF) is an organization promoting and advancing the technology through its members which includes tech giants such as IBM, Intel, Google, F5 Networks, Juniper Networks, Microsoft, Samsung, and Yahoo.
Google was the front runner in deploying SDN technology across their entire network and in data centers. AT&T has also taken initiative to deploy SDN technology in its WAN/carrier networks. Among educational institutions, Stanford University has taken lead in deploying SDN on its campus for wireless as well as fixed users
