"The Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 71.4% during the forecast period"

The market for SDN and NFV is expected to grow from USD 3.68 million in 2017 to USD 54.41 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 71.4%. The increasing evolution and demand in mobility, the increased network complexity and varied traffic pattern, and the surge in demand for cloud service, data center consolidation, and server virtualization are the major factors driving the growth of the global SDN and NFV market.

The governance and security standards, coupled with the lack of knowledge among end-users and enterprise, and the difficulty in balancing SDN with the traditional technology are acting as the obstacles for the growth of the SDN and NFV market.

"Large enterprises segment is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period"

Large enterprises have large network infrastructures and they rely on networks to carry out their daily business activities and coordinate with their other geographically spread out assets. SDN solutions provide a cheaper way to manage the entire network from a central location and provide real-time bandwidth management of the network to deliver critical business applications at higher speeds.

"North America is expected to have the largest market size during the forecast period"

North America is expected to have the largest market size during the forecast period. Factors, such as the growth of innovative technologies, including cloud computing, mobility services, virtualization of network, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) are driving the adoption of SDN and NFV in the region. Moreover, the region is witnessing the development of favorable standards and networking regulations for boosting the SDN and NFV market. Another factor contributing to the advancement of SDN and NFV in the region is high industrialization. North America is a major region for the growth of the SDN and NFV market, and is expected to continue being so in the future. The region has gained a lot of momentum in SDN and NFV-related technologies, such as NFV.
